Avoid this company at all costs (Laura Ashley, Amazon, Marbles, Aqua etc credit cards are all the same company), currently in progress of reporting to Financial Ombudsman and seeking legal advice. Made a balance transfer for full amount two months ago, still not "received" by New Day, emailed and called on a regular basis but still no further ahead. Each time I call told something different, inaccurate information on my account led me to requesting a freedom of information act to have all information they hold on me. People on the phone promise no late charges/ interest while the missing payment is investigates, then shock.. late charges/ interest on my account. Told nothing they can do. Provided all information they have requested, to then be told wrong information, back and forth with the other company who say the information is correct and the payment IS WITH NEW DAY and has been since March. Spoke to them AGAIN today told more inaccurate information, still no payment made and they continue to insist they can't find a payment, even though the other company can clearly see it is there.
There are no words........

I have an aqua card and an aqua loan and an opus card with a Small credit limit. I've never had problems with newday and they are always helpful abd upfront about charges and for those who can't get credit from high street banks I highly recommend them my aqua card has a high limit that I reduced and my opus card has a small 300limit which is perfect for those not wanting to run up big debt aqua loans are very friendly and efficient as well if you manage credit responsibility new day is a good company to use with fair interest rates that also will help you get on the ladder for high street main bank credit. They are many payday loan companies with extortionate interest new day I would recommend to anyone. Clear upfront friendly and knowledgeable staff

Customer service below average

Sometimes you might speak to someone who is friendly and helpful. Sometimes you might speak to someone who is friendly but hasn't a clue what they're doing. Most of the time, though, you'll speak to someone who sounds bored and couldn't give a stuff.

I got my card from Debanham store.
Next day on the first transaction they blocked my card without sending me any communication.
When I called then they said that they are unblocking it.Call waiting time was around an hour.
Still they did not unblock ,i called again after 2 days ,this time waiting time was even longer.One hour plus..
Again they are saying that they are unblocking but i do not know ..
Overall extremely bad experience.

Not the cheapest product on market but is good value for regular use and full payment each month. Using this helps those on lower credit scores build a better credit rating that definitely works. Don't use it as main source of credit as interest is relatively high.

I have had a Marbles card for many years, but since NewDay took over the service has declined. Awful telephone menu not giving an option to talk to someone if your enquiry does not fit one of the limited options. Moved house recently and the online account facility allows you change address. Looks absolutely fine on-screen but Marbles system seems to have mangled old and new address so staements and correspondance comes out wrong. Three declined payments this week - do not know why as account less than 25% of limit, suspect the mangled account address not agreeing with details input on store website. Spent 29 minutes on phone being passed from one assistant to another (four in total), having to go through the security details each time, why can't they pass on the validation?
Will most likely now be changing to another card supplier.

Dec17 Update:
Newday admitted the fault, but I still decided to change the card in May - very quick and easy to do. Multiple errors and not easy to contact meant that I decided it was time to move on.

Fraud £128 on my newday account. I have been called a liar!!!

After checking my statement, I noticed 2 transactions. 1 of £28 and the other £100 made in Peacocks in Falmouth. I had not been to Falmouth and alarm bells started ringing. Also the fact that they were rounded up figures ( not the case if you are buying in a store). After over an hour on the phone, I was told to ring back the following day. I did this and again another hour . In the meantime I had emailed them (after being told there was no email address) to be told. Newday cards (Outfit) cannot be used in Peacocks!!! Funny that as I regularly use Peacocks to buy my grandchildrens clothes. After spending the last 4 days now, numerous emails and phone calls, I have just been told by newday that I am a "Liar" as it was a chip and pin transaction. I DON'T CARE, THESE ARE NOT MY TRANSACTIONS. Right time to take legal action I think!!! Hate bad unprofessional customer service!!

Do not under any circumstances touch this company no matter how much you want a credit card. They charge you no matter what, apr is massive, access to online account, well once you are late online is none existent, you offer to pay by DD but refused if you account is behind??? They get your address wrong and you pay for it, no statements, but its your fault even though you gave them the right address. Awful company, unfair! Wish I had never done it.

If, like me, you've moved fairly recently to the UK and have had to start your credit and banking history from scratch, the Aqua Advance Credit Card is a good starting point. They say 'yes' where others say 'no' - probably best to try credit card application simulators to check your chances of getting accepted by any provider before collecting too many hits on your credit history. Applying and using your card is really simple and you'll get text and email reminders to pay your statement on time. The website is not the most intuitive of all, but after searching around a bit, you'll usually find what you need. After half a year of using the card responsibly and paying in full every month I asked for a credit limit increase which was promptly granted. The rates are very high, but if you always pay in full, it doesn't make that much difference since you're not paying them anyway. And in the meantime you'll be able to build your credit history and make way for getting better deals down the road.
