    My credit card is no more :(

    I've been a victim of credit card fraud and just had to cut up my beloved cc. I have to wait 10 days before I get a new one - how will I feed my HDUK addiction? Please no one post any amazing deals for the next 10 days!!

    And before anyone says it, yes, I do have a debit card and no, I do not spend beyond my means. I just always buy everything on my cc - I love it

    Sniff sniff, just needed to tell some fellow HDUKers who would feel my pain.

    Haha - excellent. :thumbsup:
    Wasn't dissing anyone who does spend beyond their means, was just pre-empting the comments fron people about the evils of credit cards!

    The joys of 0% interest freet. I keep saying to myself every year. This is the year that I will not apply for one, but then another company comes with an impressive deal with 9, 10 or 12 months interest free in purchases.

    Last deal M&S 10 months 0% for purchases. :thumbsup:

    OP You should always try to keep at least two credit cards to avoid this situation

    I know, it would be sensible wouldnt it! I never thought it would take so long to issue a new card... I'll have a look for another cc deal today.

    I have 4 credit cards, because I just can't say no to cashback deals.

    Need to ditch some tho!

    10 days for a replacement is a long wait, which company is it, so that we can avoid them?

    It is with Nationwide. They told me 7-10 working days which I thought was a long time too. Am hoping it comes quicker than that!
