Sneaky fees

If you go over your limit even slightly, you'll get charged £12 twice. Once for the month in which you went over, and once for the next month (since you won't be told you're over until after the deadline to miss the next fee).

I have received a man arrears letter every month despite my husband and I putting a substantial amount in every month. I set up a direct debit with them only to find money wasn’t being taken and when I eventually set up my standard order the money kept being returned. I am exasperated and I will never ever recommend post office credit card to anyone!!!! Once I have settled my debt I will cancel this and never return.

Appalling!!!

They blocked my account for not remembering my online password despite me doing a password recovery. Customer services refuse to answer the phone and play awful music down the phone. A truly horrific experience. Based on their non existent customer service, I certainly would not recommend them to anyone.

On hold endlessly for confusing information and no answers

I've had this card for a while and use it for purchases abroad and joint purchases. Don't remember particular problems before , (but don't remember last time I used it either..) Yesterday I went to buy a new item online, got the dreaded Mastercard securecode page, filled in all my details, was asked to CREATE a passcode... authorisation then failed. This 3 times over. I gave up and used my Santander card (also Mastercard), verified the purchase with OTP, worked seamlessly, thanks Santander! I was keen to know why I had such a problem with the post office card, so I rang them today. First time I gave up after 12 minutes on hold, second time I decided to stick it out, and after 13 minutes of their blaring and irritating hold music (at 2.15pm so should be a quiet time...?) I got Maeve, who didn't seem to understand what I was saying and told me repeatedly that I had entered the wrong passcode while I told her repeatedly how I had been ASKED TO SET UP a passcode during the transaction. She then indicated that my card had been locked.. and said I could go through the set up a passcode process again the next time I purchase. Frankly I'm not too keen to go through that entire rigmarole again so I asked if I can set up the password directly with the post office - she said no, you need to set it up on the mastercard securecode site, which will be the first thing that comes up in a google search. It's not - instead I get a whole bunch of infomation pages touting securecode, none of which allow me to do anything meaningful, and I am not one step forward. On the basis of this, I may just avoid using the post office card again, it's not worth the hassle, the massive amount of time waiting on hold to speak to someone who doesn't seem to know what's going on, and the likelihood of the whole thing being repeated next time I try to use the card. Marks for ease of use - MINUS 10!

Also poor customer service (see above) and you will wait forever for an agent on the phone.
I pay off my PO platinum card in full each month but they have a sneaky way to charge interest on cash withdrawals in the month after the full amount and all charges are paid. I will be cancelling my card as soon as this is sorted out.

Horrifically slow and bad service undoes the 0% overseas rate

Like the 0% charge on overseas..but then they proactively blocked my overseas purchase because it seemed suspicious (which is odd given they market this for overseas purchases). This then dragged me into their customer service which never answered...

Like the 0% charge on overseas..but then they proactively blocked my overseas purchase because it seemed suspicious (which is odd given they market this for overseas purchases). This then dragged me into their customer service which never answered my call. So ended up having to use my other card to get the transaction done which defeated the whole purpose of the 0 fee on overseas. This has happened multiple times.

Went online to apply for one of there credit cards used the pre check to see if I would be approved and it came back saying that I was 9.5 out of 10 of being accepted so I carried on with the application and submitted it to then be told we need to see your last 3 months bank statements to see your income before i can issue you a card I have never had this before with any other credit cards so I go to the bank and get them and post them as there's no other way as they are still running in the stone age ! Then I get a letter about 10 days later saying the bank statements that I sent were no good as only my surname is on them so what a waste of my time now i have gone and got a search on my credit file for nothing if you try ringing you will be waiting a long time I just gave up. Went to another credit card company gave me an £1500 limit straight away and 0% Balance transfer for 36 months.

Post office been with them over 20 years had no defaults and paid up on time if not before time , asked to up credit limit and was declined no reason give , I suspect its because I have paid up all the time and they are not making any money out me , a credit card is needed for most car hire abroad of which i needed it for , as prepay credit cards , debit cards are not taken , so the post office has now ruined the propect of holidays abroad with there petty minded ways , I will now be canceling the card and going to a reputable banking establishment than using a crooked firm as the post office , and boycock the post office completly rip podt office

ZERO STARS!!! BEWARE!!! Since Febuary 2018 I have made the min payment every month on time. Despite my balance reducing each month the interest charged increased as did the monthly payment. For example, the interest in March was £106.48 then £115.11 in April. In May it was £103.03 and then in June £105.16. The min payment in March was £164 and then £172 in April and £175 in May. When I rang customer service to ask how I can be charged higher interest and payments each month on a reducing balance they could not explain, even after the representative agreed with me that it wasn't what she'd expect and asked her manager for advice. They are now sending me a letter which will, apparently, explain the inexplainable. I've had credit cards for 25 years and no other company increases charges like this.

Agent was not listening to me when I was giving my details had to repeat myself a number of times. Robert didn’t know basic facts on my account then answered with offers for balance transfers are not on the account have been removed until the new financial year. Once Robert had got his facts straight after supposedly speaking with his manager he processed my request. I then asked exactly how much was the charge he replied with the percentage. I asked well could you tell me that in the actual pound figure he replied I’m not able to give Financial advice and said need to get a calculator and work it out myself.

It’s been a great card in terms of having 30 month Interest free and the app being easy to use but their customer service isn’t great. I accidentally changed my direct debit from minimum payment to balance in full. I phoned to explain and they told me the refund would be back in my account within 5-10 days. It took 3 phone calls and 18 days to finally receive a cheque from them which then took another 5 days to clear. 23 days is a long way away from 5-10 and I got no apology.

The post office have the worst customer service I have had the unfortunate luck to come across. Their telephone assistance is downright disgraceful. Firstly they wouldn't let me tell them I was intending to go abroad unless I downloaded the app! I was on the telephone telling them but they refused to log it unless I downloaded the app. Secondly I made a balance transfer and this left my card in credit. I cut up the card and telephoned to advise them that I wanted to refund the credit and close my account. Simple you would think. Oh no , not with the post office. You need to ring list and stolen , order a new credit card , wait for it to come , register it , ring them back and cancel it then cut it up ! !! What a waste of time and money !!!! This must cost their company thousands and cause customers a head ache. No wonder my shares are dropping. The advisors don't let you talk to a senior , it's just a disgrace. Unless you have lots of time and patience I wouldn't bother with this company it's awful

I've been very impressed with my PO credit card. I got a long 0% deal, which was very useful at he time, and have found their service easy and efficient, quick to set up, and well organised. They have an app for your phone which makes it very easy to make payments, and keeps you informed of the figures and payments etc, and they also send an email once a month reminding you of payments due. Overall, easy and efficient - recommended!

Card is ok if you want to avoid foreign transaction charges.
Major issue if you have a problem. Whilst the customer service folks are polite enough, they just really stick with their scripts. I have a dispute on a transaction and the procedure is painful.
My advice, pay the foreign exchange fee and get decent service if there is a problem as I have never had issues with other providers as I have with this one.

If you intend to use when abroad - 100% recommend
If you require customer service - it's non existent. I paid a substantial deposit for a new kitchen fitting - the Company has gone bust - 5 phone calls each in excess of 35 minutes 1 letter mailed over 2 weeks ago no progress . Cannot speak to anyone, email anyone - it is a joke, how this bank is allowed to operate in this manner is beyond me AVOID AT ALL COSTS if you are likely to need any customer service
How this bank is allowed to operate in this manner is beyond me
