Can you top up revolut card and pay later?
So last month I discovered a cock up on behalf of Tesco bank. They charged me £80.09 interest on an interest free balance transfer I've had for months. They refunded it to my credit card but not back to my bank. I was compensated £25 to my bank accout but still out of pocket to the tune if £50 for the month. Just had my latest statement and they are about to charge me £77.67 interest this month on the interest free balance transfer amount. Apparently this is for last month before they corrected the error made when they were supposed to reinstate the balance transfer interst free facility. Why was this not adjusted when they reinstated the balance transfer? Instead they are going to take £77.67 which once taken they can't refund back to my bank and leave me £77.67 short for living on again. This is appalling. It's abuse of the direct debit. The amount is incorrect and I've just been told as it's been generated it can't be adjusted on the bill. So although it will be refunded and come off my credit card bill I won't get it back in my bank so I'm force to make a higher payment than I should be which puts me in a mess for the second time. If that direct debit amount isn't corrected and is taken I will be making a very loud complaint. They are helping themselves to my hard earned money without my permission. Just spoke to the 24 hour customer services who of course can't help me so at the end of a long night shift I have to stay up to call operations finance. I am livid Tesco bank for goodness sake get it sorted and stop taking large amounts you aren't entitled to from my bank ultimately forcing me to use a credit card to buy food and incur interest on that use. Items I would have been buying with money taken incorrectly from my bank account. I've been put through unbelievable stress over this. I took the direct debit option to avoid mistakes with payment thus avoiding stress as I have a health condition where stress has a severe effect on me physically. Here I am stressed to the eyeballs and in severe pain thanks to the very thing I put in place to avoid stress. £77.67 is a lot of money to me as I'm sure it is most people.

Right I'm with you so the 60 days is to cover them after the 0% promotional period has ended and if you continue to use the card after that period
GroundZero
So if purchases are made and the minimum payment is made the 0% interest will be intact for the whole promotional period? I've just received one of sainsburys 0% purchase cards and on the terms it state's (if anyone can confirm or am I reading this wrong?) that on the individual purchase's that amount needs to be settled with 60 days otherwise it start's to accrue interest regardless of any promotional 0% ??
So I gather from this :
http://www.moneysupermarket.com/credit-cards/purchases
That the stated 60 days is the generic blurb for "pay before this day or the interest rates apply"
In these cards case the interest applied is 0% for the initial 30 months

(Sorry, probably pretty obvious to anyone who's ever had one)

Edited By: hawk299 on May 15, 2017 15:12: correction
Tesco's also had a similar statement and I too would like to know what that means?
If I put £6k on it today and paid it off over the 30 months (£200pm) would I have to pay any interest?

cashback is only for standard, extra or premier policies. you wont get cashback for accident and injury cover.
if u get pet insurance it needs to be a least 2 grand cos anything less wouldn't touch the sides
Be very careful with Pet insurance. The first company you choose is vitally important as it is difficult to change and providers that will cover pre existing conditions once you have made a claim.

We chose AXA thinking they were a safe bet and second in the charts behind market leaders PetPlan who were slightly more expensive.

All well for first two years until AXA pulled out of the pet insurance market and sold the order book to NCL. They were obliged to continue cover but as we had made claims for skin problems we are now at their mercy.

Edited By: JohnnyUtah on Apr 04, 2017 13:00
I checked out my springer cross at £150 pa I am currently on petplan at three times that!! The policies were as similar as I could make them. This is worth researching if you are ready to buy.
if your interested take the time to read the plan and policy.

Asked them today and got this reply.... "your second application would be considered a new application and therefore the new criteria would be applicable. If you opened the account you currently have before the new rules then there will be no changes to that account. However, for any new applications, including secondary accounts, the new rules will apply, I hope that makes sense!

Has anyone got any crafty ideas for paying the DD's? I worked out ( I think, if my sums are correct) that if you're forced to pay £3 per month to charities the effective rate is 2.3% which is still pretty good, but one or two DD's funding your own accounts could raise it.
If you have any monthly credit card payments (Netflix or similar) move them to a credit card (ideally a dormant one you have), then set up a monthly direct debit to pay in full?

Good idea but unfortunately I have nothing like that...I think I've got it worked out though. I remember I had an old post office savings account which has a direct debit function , so I am going to re-open one of those specifically for this purpose (all the t&c's suggest it's the same as before but I will see...) For the second I will put the interest + a few pound into Ratesetter and for the third I will either feed my LISA monthly or give it to a charity. I wish I had just opened a second account now before they added all these hoops to jump through

Would existing customers opening a second account be subject to the new terms and conditions on that second account?
I would guess that yes, they would - but I reckon you'll only know by giving it a try.
You are correct!

It's great that nothing changes for existing customers as they say if you opened your account before 1st April 2017 then there are no monthly requirements. I just wish that I hadn't waited to open another now! Very frustrating!

ya well some times you lost on not waiting to with tsb's now giving 3% and another £10 (£5 for 2 dd and £5 for using debit card 20 times with no min so 1 x 10p sweet x 20, or just normal usage) in free to get rewords pcm to only new customers from march, ofc i got acocunts with them before than and only get the 3% lol

but like others have said will be nice when saving rates come back and dont have to play games to get offer rates

tho i do have 2 for the tescos 3% from doing nothing for it under old rules, tho 3 DD's really aint hard to get, paypal is a DD, send 1p to a family or friend from each account a month, and get a new credit card or credit cards, set up a DD to pay off the full, and only use that card once a month, thats up to 6 DD's covers, just had to carry more cards and remember what ones you main are and what ones your DD filler are

wouldnt even have to carry the new cards around with you as could be online use as what common to buy more than 4 things online a month any more aint it lol, just have to remember the use the CC for DD once a month, and set up a DD to pay it, really not so hard to get any number of dd's you like even if you dont have bills to pay monthly, i only have 2 bills a month, and still have over 10 DD reqs that i meet, 5 paypal and 2 of bills and 3 with CC's, really not hard if your willing to think about what card to use for a few mins once a month, until it becomes routine / habit

tesco account 1

the pay in ofc just move from another outside bank
PP (DD tho you cant set up a DD for paypal, all paypal payments you make count as a DD so send 1p to someone you love or hate)
CC 1 (1 use rather than normal CC a month DD in full) *£30 cashback to for post office matched CC* **no fee ofc**
CC 2 (1 use rather than normal CC a month DD in full) *£26 cashback for AA dual CC* **no fee ofc**

tesco 2

the pay in just ofc move from other outside bank
PP (DD tho you cant set up a DD for paypal, all paypal payments you make count as a DD so send 1p to someone you love or hate)
CC 3 (1 use rather than normal CC a month DD in full) *£30 cashback for auqa CC* **no fee ofc**
CC 4 (1 use rather than normal CC a month DD in full) *£17 cashback for argos CC* **no fee ofc**

really not hard to do the added terms is it, even if you dont have or want to move dd's from your main bank, true getting 4 cards just for DD's can hit your credit report but oh well can be done over time *or it will just repair it selfs in a few months anyways from you gaining 4 cards that are paid of in full each month less you fail to set up the DD's with them but thats your problem if you cant deal with money*, and even get the up to £30 cashback offers for them each lol

really all the terms add are a challenge to see who can think and who cant,

so i really dont get all the moaning about it (ofc not directed at who i replyed to more in general from the reopened topic)

Looking forward to the rates going up at some point so we can stop all of this nonsense and just get a normal rate in a normal savings account!
Would be great but can't see it happening anytime soon.
Neither can I sadly...I am turning to investing to try to defeat inflation
I am at a stage in life with zero debt and looking for a few good investments to achieve early retirement, hopefully around age 57 but not easy.

Got a few of these free policies to run alongside my proper life insurances. The Post Office offer is MUCH better tho. Neither are a true alternative to proper life insurance however, more of a bonus sum if the kids are still young.
And the Post Office is also an Aviva product, so you can't have that and the Tesco Bank offer (or rather you can, but Aviva would only pay out on one of them).

Any more feedback on this?
All good no problems?

Any quidco option, I only see bank transfer ones.
I plan to use this to pay for a villa through PayPal, and also purchase dollars through fair fx.
Anyone know if this is likely to cause an issue? They seem to be purchases to me
Thanks

Late here but I applied and got accepted.
£3,300 limit!
Never got any confirmation email etc I just logged into the Tesco bank page and see my details in there now.
I guess the card will be on it's way!

Once you have the card you should be able to log in to your providers site & setup a DD for the minimum payment.
You can do this before you receive the card in this case. Once you receive a text from them ~24hrs after a successful application you'll find you can login to the online banking and also setup the DD.
Still no message and as I was doing the application the reference number I had was lost as battery died! Thinking a call may need to be made.
Good idea. Did you do the sign up to online banking as part of the application? I did. Maybe it's related to that. If you did, maybe see if you can a login first.
I'm not sure if I signed up. I think I did but I didn't receive an email. I got to the bit where it says we can give £2100 for 21 months.
It asked for some details etc then the battery went dead.
However I filled the details with the address so they should be able to locate via that.
Good stuff, you got the pin already!
Yeah, give them a buzz. I did think the application was a bit odd in that it felt like you'd been approved and completed it, as it told you your limit and that you'd been approved, but you then had to expand ~3 sections and tick to confirm you accepted all of the T&C before it was really completed.

Going to call them now. Lol
Application done. Move from Capital One hopefully
I've never had a credit card before, so excuse the possibly stupid question: if the central banks raise interest rates, does Tesco have a legal right to increase the rate of this product before the 28-month term ends? -or before any other period of time?

I don't want to get burned, but this would really help me out with a bigger purchase which I am good for and could re-pay within 6 months. Cheers!

Tesco bank,like most other financial institutions won't accept you if you aren't working,unless of course you already bank with them
Well, that's not true. I set up an account with Tesco Bank whilst not being employed and had no ties to their banking branch. Now credit cards, that's another matter, but I'm looking for facts on this not conjecture. I think I'll hold off till I'm in work.

I was looking at the Tesco Balance transfer card and came across this. Thankfully I've not got any cards where I need to transfer the balance but I wouldn't mind maxing this card out for the 21 month period of 0% interest. It seems to be £1200, is that right?
I've just posted this to see what people think of Tesco's banking and especially if anyone's had any experience with this specific card. I'm not fussed about the TCB, if I go ahead then obviously I'll try it but I certainly wouldn't apply for the card purely to get cashback.
I get cards purely for the cash back. 1 every 6 months. Free money really. I don't actually use it. I'm classed as a new Tesco customer again now so ordered again. No problems last time. Thanks op.

So if you're a Tesco Banking customer, there should be no issues getting this card then? My credit is fine but I'm not in work at the mo. I could hold off till I'm earning again so I know I'll get accepted, but I'd prefer to get it out of the way.


I'm not sure to be honest with not working. No problem regarding the Tesco banking though. Try one of the eligibility probability searches on money saving expert to estimate your chances of success. You can have 2 tesco credit cards also so in theory you could do the cash back twice.

Is there any point applying for this I have been turned down for the AA and Virgin cards in the past week.

2 x £10,000 credit cards with 23% interest payable next month on one of them! Desperate.

Credit cards can be rather odd. My sister earns way more than me and is in a more established profession, yet she was offered only £1200 with the Tesco credit card and rejected by the AA card. She was accepted by Virgin and given the maximum. I wonder how they work out who to reject and who to accept because there doesn't seem to be a consistent pattern.
What's the maximum amount you can transfer with the Tesco card? The Fluid credit card was good for doing a balance transfer and then transferring the money to a bank account. Only problem is once the account goes to zero, they automatically shut your account.
Is it possible to use to pay off existing bank loans?

I find credit cards a minefield.
I want to buy a car, I have all the money for the car, I just want a credit card for the extra protection, are there any cards which would suit me (without any fees). Any help greatly appreciated.

You only need to put a tenner (not even that !) on your cc card for the extra section 75 protection a purchased item that costs more than £100 and less than £30k , I would imagine any cc card would give you this . I used First Direct recently for a claim under section 75 for my car purchase earlier this year and it was dealt with efficiently by them. I did have a rock solid claim though and got paid out £900 for a new clutch and flywheel for a 2nd hand car ( clutch was slightly slipping within days of buying it ) - good job for section 75 as the dealer didn't want to know ! ;)

PS - Make sure you are issued with a receipt to state that the part payment by CC is part of the car purchase and therefore no dispute can arise as to what the cc payment was for , this I believe is quite important.

Happy days! Played this offer to the full advantage. As I already have Tesco cc I have referred my wife, got £33.30 TCB plus 1000 clubcard points each. Then she referred me so I applied for my second Tesco cc, again £33.30 TBC plus 1000 points each. All confirmed and applied to relevant accounts :)
Cheers OP!

Great deal; Thank you OP. I had a balance on another CC which was coming to the end of it's 0% period. Applied for the Tesco CC and got 19k credit limit in 5 minutes, wow! They also accepted the transfer from my other CC. A bit worrying that banks are giving out so much 'free' (before anyone jumps on this I mean 0% for 2 years) cash; trends of pre-2008 lending! My CC is going in the safe so that I am not tempted by the remaining 13k available credit on it. You get 3 months 0% balance transfers and also 1 month 0% on all purchases!

I've just done it and was thinking the same thing - I haven't swopped cards in a while and thought it would offer something like £3000 or £4000, I also got offered 19K - god grief! - I might ring them and get them to reduce it once it's set-up.
How hot is this? £30 cashback + my girlfriend will reffer me so we both get 1000 Clubcard Points!

I always do LV premier. It is around £140 for a couple policy worldwide but they are brilliant and I've claimed before. They also include many activities that some policies don't, such as horse riding and hiking or mountain climbing up to 6000 metres. It's good if you aren't just taking general package holidays. When I went to Antarctica they were one of only a minoriry number of companies that covered me as standard on their premier policy as the medical cover we has to have was crazy expensive.

if you are looking for yearly travel insurance then this can be expensive even with the 25% off for the same cover, go for Tesco's "Finest" worldwide policy which before the 25% off is £231 for a family policy where as Nationwides flex account is £120 which includes your travel insurance with the same level of cover, car breakdown, mobile cover and much more.

You will be able to get cheaper worldwide cover from Tesco cheapest is £128 a year however, the cover is so low and in many countries the medical cover will not be sufficient.

There are cheaper travel insurance companies but do remember cover isn't always the same.

What a rip off!! Go to compare the market for the exact same thing and get it for pennies!! Just got a quote for £29.97 for a single trip with tesco....even with 25% off its still a con!!
I had an accident with Tesco motor insurance. Couldn't praise them enough... I didn't have to worry about anything and was all sorted very quickly
yeah, can imagine to call the m0rons for some claim ....
Did you ever had Tesco Motor Insurance and handle a accident claim with them ?

Seems expensive ...
Annual cover came out at £120 for a family of 3 (without the discount). 4 times what I pay at the moment.
I still find American Express Select (with 23.1% cashback and 30% off using the voucher code "relax") the cheapest. Trips lasting 60 days are part of the normal policy (you don't have to pay extra as with this deal) and the greatest bit is for an extra 10 quid you can waver the excess.

Massive warning anything thinking of applying for a Credit Card from Tesco Bank

First statement had a charge on it, I'd assumed the first month had been the balance transfer fee, when a similar amount appeared on this month, it's clear they're charging me interest despite the balance transfer apparently being free.

I phoned up their help line and the response I got was that, despite their website saying it was 0% on payments to banks and 0% for credit cards, that the offer I had applied for was only for credit cards and that I should have applied for a specific bank card..

I'm not convinced I was ever even given the option (was sure I was applying for a general balance transfer card), let alone it made clear that there was a difference between the options.

They've escalated my complaint, if all doesn't go smoothly I'm stuck paying £40 a month interest on a balance I can't afford to pay off (the money was used to close other cards).
Applied for this approx 3-4 weeks ago via Topcashback. It tracked fine for me and have received a payout from Topcashback today of £30.30!!
Tesco. Credit card cash back. Never going to happen.
I applied for this before through Quidco. It tracked perfectly but then they declined it for no reason. Quidco didn't allow me to raise a claim so I simply cancelled the card. Really it was a dishonest and sneaky thing for them to do!
I always get Tesco cashback declined

Does this work online too or just via phone?

Thanks


I put the promotion code into Compare the market and it said it was accepted at the quote stage. I called Tesco Bank to check and purchase the policy and the points had been added to the policy already. Great deal, and one of the cheapest insurance policies out there!


That's great if it works as it says not in conjuction with any other offer or comparison websites

Well, some insurers offer £84 cashback via TCB. What's special with 4000 points?
My insurance cost me £16 after the cashback.
Some people at MSE even make profit.

Yep, I made £9 by taking out a contents policy last week!

Does look horrendous till you look at all the other major insurers e.g. John Lewis, Aviva etc. All rated around 1 out of 5 seems to be a general preception of insurance companies doing everything to get out of paying claims which all of us know is probably the case!

How to transfer money from another credt card to Tesco card? I can't figure it out.
I know, I called them because I did a money transfer by mistake thinking it was a Balance Transfer - the place they put the link is NOT where you would expect it to be lol.
On your main account page (Online banking overview) - Under your Current Balance and Limit press the blue "Manage Account" button. Then when the next page loads look in the middle and there are three blue hyperlinks (clickable) - one says "Transfer a balance from another card" - click that.... when the next page loads just fill in the Credit Card number, the amount, tick the box and click continue - sorted!!!! :)
Thank you so much :)

You're welcome :)

Tesco/Aviva now offering £15k for a year. Well worth it if you have no other cover
There's a method of rotating the cover to cover yourself for the first 5 years of your youngest child's life, which I'll not post to take credit for.
Basically read the terms of conditions of free insurance from Tesco, Post Office, Emma's Diary / Boots / other baby starter pack, and finally Aviva who seem to underwrite all the cover from these providers. Some are the first year, some are for one year within the first five years, and applies to the youngest child if you wish.

We're into the fourth year of our free cover with Tesco currently, but have used POst Office and Aviva before, and have at least 2 more options until youngest turns 5 (new date of birth to input, so we can go back to Aviva once more).

but otherwise you're just handing all your details over to be bombarded 12 months from now. Far better to invest in proper cover that you don't have to rely on remembering to renew etc.
Please, if you've no experience of something, don't post rubbish.
I did this 18 months ago; I got one letter telling me it was about to expire. Nothing since.
For all the hassle this is (Fill out a couple of forms, sign a letter), it's worth it for 10k should the worst happen - there's nothing to stop you having other policies, so this is just a little extra piece of mind.

Agreed. I did the Post Office equivalent. I got one letter and nothing else.

To be honest I don't know. I just saw it during application process that the rate and term is the same, but I would try to enter your bank card details. Worst can happen it will be rejected and you will have to call them
Found the answer, what I described is a 'money transfer' card, similar but 3.94% charge, same 40 months interest free: http://www.tescobank.com/credit-cards/money-transfer/index.html?atlassource=paid&cmpid=ppc/acq/cc/g/bp/na&gclid=CKbj1amwuMsCFfEV0wodZ9kG-w
I'm talking about OP's deal. I applied for the card and during application process there was mention what is included like Extra Clubcard points etc. One of which was money transfer option with the same "rules" as balance transfer.


How weird, they told me over the phone it couldn't be done and I have had to cancel the original and wait another month to apply again!
Consolidating my MSc debt onto this will save me a lot of money, thanks.

Could you take out the policy and soon after the points are added and then cancel bagging the 4000 points........could they snatch the points back....anybody tried this??
Worked for me with online application. Cheers.
I applied online 3 weeks ago. Called today as policy not started yet & they added the point on for me.
Spoke to someone at Tesco, the code is listed as working as working online and over the phone - so I bought via Quidco as well. Here's hoping...

I looked into this last week. Not a great deal. On phone quote was 170 but via topcashback quote was £130 with £40 cash back! Shop around folks!


I agree top cash back was better deal for me but it will obviously depend on where you live!!

You get some other rewards with this.

Doing a few green drives (not accelerating too fast, take corners smoothly, braking in time and going within the speed limit) gets you a free coffee at the tesco cafe.

Worthwhile shopping around of course for insurance but I know that Tesco was a decent price for me when I looked on comparison sites.
Tesco insurance is expensive. You'd save a lot more by forgetting this app and comparing insurance companies yourself. My insurance with Tesco would be £525.29 - 20% = £420.23. Admiral - £292.57 (fully comp).

Uber should incorporate this technology into their app!
