AVOID AA CREDIT CARDS AT ALL COST.

I applied for this card over a month ago after seeing it on MSE. It is a good deal after all. After the online application they needed to verify my ID by sending personal documents to them verified by a doctor or solicitor. Cheeky **** sent it back and saying that my solicitor cannot be accepted. Way way to much hassle. I cancelled it and applied to the Halifax card instead. Much better service.

Rant over
I applied for the card 2 weeks back but so far no communication. Still waiting to hear from them. 100 percent time auto decision system always go in favor of me but whenever underwriter make decisions 95 percent time application get declined. checked my credit score and report with all 3 credit reference agency , no ccj , no default but used 67 percent of available credit and no late payment in last 5 years but still refused by sainsbury loan 6500 and Tesco card but then after a week accepted by mbna 2500 and lloyds card 800 plus 1st direct bank with overdraft facility 250, also refused by Mark and spencer but accepted by virgin card 1500 limit. and only 1/4 of my income is my total credit limit. Don't know whether AA will accept me or not. What they say about credit score is not always right, because I think it's all depends on creditors own formula .
No idea why people would vote cold. Heat from me.
Anyone voting cold care to explain why, 30 months interest free on spending seems like a good deal

Just got a letter from AA regarding the application. They want several items of identification sent, and have to be photocopies of original documents countersigned by a third party, such as accountant, GP, lawyer. What a piece of nonsense, never had to do anything like this before. I already have an AA credit card with a substantial balance transfer on it, surely they must know who I am!!!

Just as I said above - in your case, as you're already a customer, AA are even more constructively difficult!

If i understood it correcty one needs to spend over £500 on the card then one gets 4% cash back on any fuel bought in that month and not 4% of total spend on the card. If thats the case the fee of the card permonth would be higher than cash back for an average home unless one owns a lorry.
Or just buy gift cards. I have bought Tesco gift cards at Esso/Tesco express this month and it shows on my account as Tesco Petrol filling station (TPF) so I do not see why I should not earn 4% on this as long as I spend a total of £500 in the month. The gift card I bought I just topped up with £65 so it looks like a fill up. So 4% off Tesco too.
Morrisons petrol station sells various gift cards too including Amazon so that's 4% off Amazon.
Thats clever i would not have thought of that.
Thanks

I spend £300 a month on fuel so these seems like a good option for me!

Too much effort
I have pasted this from my last response to an AA card deal " Please please please people don't use this card. It is okay if you plan to clear the balance over the duration of the interest free period. BUT if you want to transfer the balance from the aa card to another you can't (I couldn't and I tried three different cards; barclaycard, mbna and virgin) they said that it was because AA cards are not fully registered on the system so no way of paying them. I had to get a money transfer card use that to pay off the balance via a current account then balance transfer from the money transfer card. Trust me it was an absolute ball ache! Aa cards are part of RBI btw and the customer service agents are eegits.
The annual fee kills it.
Max spend of £3750 on "fuel" before getting to the cap then.
Paradroid
"Just another thought that should work is getting the equivalent of 4% cashback at other shops via gift-cards purchased in petrol stations."
Isn't the 4% cashback limited to fuel only, so you'd only get 0.5% cashback (assuming the T&C don't exclude gift card purchases)
Also you get 2% cashback on fuel when you spend less than £500 in a month.

I'm not sure how they would know you purchased a gift card as long as it was purchased in the petrol station. They would just know the type of outlet (Petrol station) plus the amount to charge to your card. A bit similar to Amex deals were the T & C say no gift cards but it still works.

Inflation is only going up (due to the idiots that voted for Brexit), so you might as well take up more debt like pigs that can't stop eating. The value of the pound will only be eroded and within the UK everything will become ever more expensive - therefore you might as well in-debt yourself further.

No Longer Available with 0% balance transfer fee :(
memistokkan
When did they ask for the information?

I got an email stating something along the lines "Your application has been approved in principle, but we need further information from you before we can continue."

Only good thing is that for some reason, their credit check hasn't appeared on my credit file with any credit agency that I can see - the only search they've done is an "identity" search. That might explain the need for documents (there's two people with my name living at my address) - to verify who it is before they run a hard check.

That said, the amount of information is extortionate. We just bought a flipping car on PCP and all they needed was a driving license and employment details. Bit crazy if you ask me.
I got this last time and wasn't asked for any extra info. The cashback never tracked and still waiting after filing for missing cashback claim 3 months ago
I went for this a couple of months back (didn't know about the cashback) and the application process is a pain, but the 0% fee is worth the 10 minutes in the bank getting 'certified' copies. At first my bank said no and that they only do it for their own products, but after explaining my only option would be a doctor and that appointments took weeks for this type of thing *lie* they done it for me.

The balance transfer went through no problem (within a day or so) and it didn't cost me anything. Everything can be done through their website so no waiting about on the phone, so I am chuffed with it TBH.
I didn't have a problem getting this card last time around. Accepted instantly, so it can't be everyone they ask all this info from.

The first year is free, the £42 annual fee (charged monthly @ £3.50) only kicks in on the 13th month by which time you can cancel, not to mention £31.50 cashback on TCB, this wasn't a bad deal at all.
£42 a year fee, but then say you get free breakdown cover?

It's like the £22 Vodafone broadband deal with free line rental all over again!
bilbob
Yeah, the figures don't add up... max cashback with minimum spend to get most cashback means you can't claim upper limit for the whole year, and then you have to deduct the cost of the card... So MAX net cashback is £108, or £9 per month.
So, not rubbish, it IS money back... But not as good as the headline.
Not brilliant agreed but ok and nothing better..
£27 a quarter cashback (plus a free breakdown cover or MOT annually from Year2 )for some spending £75 a week on fuel (with additional £200 spend Per Month apprx)

I make £75 per week with 4% cashbask equate to £156 per yr, but its capped at £150 total cashback per yr..

Got my cashback last week very happy with this deal
Best thing is not to have a credit card at all unless you can afford to pay back in full at the end of every month. If you can't afford it then don't buy it and for those of you who find you can't pay it back in full then go get the scissors and cut your card up.
I'm surprised that this isn't hotter, this is pretty much free money.
I have AA card and they are horrible in issuing generous credit limit..Even if you have excellent credit score / file. They will tell you the same ODD horrible stories if you request more credit limit. Also Topcashback Will take an ages and mostly likely years to to issue cashback. NOT the easiest things in the world. :)

I went for a previous cashback offer of 25 quid or something, just waiting for it to become payable from TC. I have an excellent credit file and they gave me a shoddy £3800 limit, didn't even cover the amount I wanted to BT from Tesco so I had to take out another card from Virgin who were more than happy to give me over £7k, a month after being accepted for the AA card.
Their mobile app isn't great either, a long way off the other mainstream providers.

One of the reason we ended up in this mess is because banks allowed credit card customers to rack up loads of debt. It's a good thing they are reigning it back in and reality is £3800 is a good limit, I remember not long ago getting a near 20 grand limit which is stupid really :(

Just as a warning, got a 2.99% BT fee slapped on it. Not happy.
Thanks guys, i'll give them a ring and see how this works out!

I have the money to pay it off (Holiday fund). But need to get that onto the AA card. if this may be an easier route i look forward to any suggestions!
Got the card with 4k limit! happy days.
Just to triple check (Sorry never done this before), i have a loan with Santander 3.8K and a Credit card with Halifax and this nice new AA CC. So i pay off the loan with the Halifax CC and then do a transfer from the Halifax to the AA CC and enjoy the interest free period?
I plan to pay off the balance within the 24 months!

Only Santander and Halifax can give you the right answer but speaking from experience as being in debt :( for almost 8 years (not anymore, thankfully) you cannot pay off a loan from a credit card. Some credit cards like Tesco and MBNA etc allow you to transfer your credit card balance to your bank account (they call it money transfers) usually with a 4% one off fee. Then you can pay off your loan as the money is going from your account.

Not sure if you can pay the loan off with a credit card. The loan company will incur card fees.
Think you need to phone and ask santander but I'm guessing it'll cost.

Sorry but cold from me! There are better cheaper options out there.

As pointed out in the MoneySavingExpert link, the Halifax clarity credit card wins hands down for me. I have been using it since many years now and is perfect. No charges for using abroad and nor any charges for withdrawing cash. Works out at around £1/month in interest per £100 withdrawn.

Also spend £300 and you get £5 cashback (which works out roughly 1.6%).

The only thing you need to do is call the customer service before you leave and tell them that you are travelling and you will use the card in another country. They will then remove the restriction for that country (to avoid fraudulent use).
Looks awful to me...

available over the phone via customer care"

Todays rate for Euros is £1=€1.1548. The current mastercard rate is £1=€1.2253, giving a mark-up of about 5.75% - and who knows what it will be tomorrow considering it changes daily with no transparent method of how it's calculated. You'd be much better off just using your normal credit/debit cards which will only mark-up about 3%, or better yet a fee-free card like the Halifax Clarity.
stick with Kalixa. best exchange rate
After many years of handing our petty cash and matching receipts together the pre paid card has solved
all of our issues. They can't overspend and you can manage this from your desktop.

A perfect business solution and very happy.
Better with CaxtonFX. Their current rate is 1.191
