Your Debit Card

Please allow up to 10 working days for your card to arrive. If you are still waiting for your card after this time, please get in touch.
You will need to activate your card before you can start using it. The quickest and easiest way to activate your card is via your online account – either on the website or the mobile app. Alternatively, you can call our automated debit card phone line on 0330 912 7932.

With your debit card you can make in store purchases using chip and PIN or contactless. Currently the limit for contactless payments in the UK is £100.
You can also use your card to make online purchases. When you check out, it is possible you will be asked to log in to your online account to complete an additional security check so we can ensure it is you making the purchase.
The best way to report your card lost, stolen or damaged by going to ‘My Cards’ on your online account or by calling the 24 hour Lost and Stolen line on 0333 202 3645. Alternatively, you can call us and one of the team will be happy to help. Once your card has been reported, a replacement will be sent to your home address.
Your first replacement card is free. After that, there will be a £10 charge for each replacement card.
If your card has been lost or stolen and there are transactions you do not recognise, please get in touch as soon as possible.
You can freeze your card by logging in to your online account, clicking ‘My Cards’ and then ‘Freeze Card’. Freezing your card will temporarily block all card functions. You can unfreeze your card once it has been found.
Freezing your card will not stop any direct debits or standing orders from being sent.
You can view your PIN by logging in to your online account, clicking ‘My Cards’ and then ‘View PIN’.
When you’re outside the UK, your card can be used to make purchases and ATM withdrawals just as you do at home, wherever you see the Visa logo. Fees and exchange rates apply – check the fees section or refer to your account terms and conditions for more information.
The first thing you should do is freeze your card.
Then you should:
- Review any recent purchases and check whether the merchants trade under any other names – for example, Argos may show as Home Retail Group or HRG.
- Check whether any free subscriptions have rolled in to a paid service.
- Check for any ongoing recurring payments.
If you still don’t recognise the transaction, you should call us as soon as possible on 0330 175 5792.
