Re: Co‑operative Bank Everyday Rewards

it's a nice deal, but i find very places that i can't spend Amex, and those that don't i want to use my Barclaycard Visa.. spending on a debit card is a little anti-stooze for my liking :mrgreen:.

Re: BT and Purchases on the same card

my thoughts entirely Sarah. i think it will work out fine, but if not then maybe i'll be able to BT back to MBNA anyway :)

BT and Purchases on the same card

i have been stoozing for years, and consistently use credit cards for all purchases, but i've never done the following before: i have a c£21k balance with MBNA which needs to be cleared before the 0% deal comes to an end on 1st September. i have already moved just under £5k to Nationwide, and i want...
