Started so well but ending so badly...

Great card in terms of free balance transfer. Got my text to saying 0% coming to an end as 21/06/20. Still owed £2300 so wanted to clear it ASAP. That same day I paid £300, then a week later another £150. Went to pay £500 again today but they REFUSE to...

Great card in terms of free balance transfer. Got my text to saying 0% coming to an end as 21/06/20. Still owed £2300 so wanted to clear it ASAP. That same day I paid £300, then a week later another £150. Went to pay £500 again today but they REFUSE to accept my money as i've made two payments this month. They are literally NOT LETTING ME clear my debt and clearly want the interest period to start. Contacted the ombudsman

Was a fantastic card in the past, now being acquired by Lloyds group the service became horrible and they changed the terms and conditions regularly to confuse you and get the most out of you. If you raise a complaint you will be put on hold for an hour then go through a complicated formal complaint process.
I cancelled the card after being a client for 15 years.
Not recommended any more, and I'll make sure to cancel all their cards very soon.

Beware of this Scam! (APPLEPAY contactless purchases)
NOTE - I have Never been registered with Applepay!!
Someone calls in to MBNA and says the card is lost, after registering it with Applepay
They issue a new card by mail, which takes up to a week to get to you
* I was not aware it had been cancelled until I tried to make a purchase*
In the meantime MBNA issue the NEW card number to the APPLEPAY account (This is BEFORE you get the card)
The scammer who has got your card number and all your details by hacking a website then starts to spend on it - there are no limits on the value of purchases.
I was, of course, had the purchases refunded (£950 in 3 days)

What angers me is that MBNA make you sin into the website with 'memorable information'
BUT letters/numbers from this were NOT asked for during the call to MBNA,by the scammer
All this could have been avoided if this had been done
It is obvious to me that there are some in customer support that need re-training.

Hope this helps others avoid what happened to me

New application set up - 5 star, once you are a customer - 0 stars

I recently set up an account. I received my pin number and online activation details in the post but no card. I called them today and after a 15 minute wait (listening to a dial tone and no actual music), I get through to be told I need to speak to the fraud team who I have to call. Another call placed and I get put on hold again - at this stage I have been calling/on hold/speaking to someone for 45 minutes. I get told there is no issue. But they go to order me another card and wait - there is a problem, but I have to call New Business who are available on weekdays. Why has no one contacted me if there is an issue with my account? Why can't I be transferred rather than call and get stuck in lengthy waiting times and why are your departments not able to read the same notes as each other. As a new customer - this is shocking service.

BE AWARE mbna credit card is no longer owned by bank of america

I have been mbna credit card customer for many years and it has always been fantastic. Customer service was actually there to serve customers. It has now been taken over by Lloyds group recently and since then service is ruined. Customer service attitude is now changed to “I don’t care about you Mr customer”. Unfortunately that American banking touch is gone and I will never recommend mbna LLOYDS credit card to anyone ever. They should change nAme instead of deceiving clients.
