    MBNA to scrap their Everyday Plus Amex card...CONFIRMED

    MBNA to scrap their Everyday Plus Amex card...CONFIRMED 6th Jun 18 at 8:59 AM
    It looks that way because when logging into my online account i'm seeing a big notice saying that my Everyday Amex account will be changing on 28th July, my account number will be changing and I'll be getting a new card in the post by September. This suggests they'll be replacing it by Visa or Mastercard, most likely the former.

    When I called customer services yesterday, they weren't giving much away saying they'll send me the new t&c's through the post by June end. All they could confirm was that my account will DEFINITELY be changing.

    I just hope they keep the attractive perks on the new card:

    * 0% commission on overseas transactions

    * Free cash withdrawals both in UK and overseas, subject to interest applied

    * Low APR of 7.4% (useful for cash withdrawals)

    EDIT: Received letter this morning confirming this, see post # 7

    Nup, their Everyday Amex still exists though it has been closed for new applications for some time.

    No they haven't. My Lloyds Avios Amex card is still active though I'm well aware that its only a matter of time before this goes as well.

    Just received the following letter from MBNA this morning, so they're definitely scrapping their Everyday Amex card:

    The new card is going to be a Visa card called 'MBNA Everyday Credit Card' (how original lol) with exactly the same features/fees/interest rates. Happy days

    Now Lloyds have acquired MBNA I wonder how long it is before my Choice Rewards card(s) are pulled and transferred to a standard Visa/MasterCard?
    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your credit history. Any replies are my own personal opinion and not a representation of my employer.

    Same letter received from MBNA so good news really with no chnages to features/beenfits and with Visa more widely accepted worldwide by reatailers and ATMs compared to American Express.

    Got the letter too. Features remain the same, just the processor changes from AMEX to VISA. I like this, because VISA is more widely accepted.

    But I also liked that I had an AMEX card in my wallet. Maybe Iíll have to look for an additional AMEX card soon.

    I got the new replacement MBNA Visa Everyday card delivered today, it does look rather bland lol. Anyway design isn't a big deal, the main thing is that the same perks are kept on the new card, eg same credit limit, no forex fees, free cash withdrawals at home & abroad and the same APR of 7.4%. Hopefully others get their new card delivered soon as well

    That link has been there for quite a while but as things stand, the mbna Everyday Visa card is only for those who had/have a mbna Everyday Amex card. In case youíre not aware, mbna (along with Lloyds) are scrapping their Amex cards. Whether mbna offer the Everyday Visa card to new customers in the future is anyoneís guess...
