    2nd Credit Card 11th Mar 18 at 7:36 PM
    Guys, I’ve a credit card via my bank that I clear monthly. I’m not trying to move my credit balance etc but would like a 2nd Card in case my 1st Card is barred. I travel a bit & Nationwide are quick to freeze card if they detect “dodgy” behaviour. What are the better Credit Cards to have as a back up?

    It would be better posting in the very first board at the top of the forum which surprisingly is the 'Credit Card' board.
    I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

    If you clear your card every month i would look into a cashback card or if you travel then an airmiles card...At least get something back for your spend
