Why should I use the credit card eligibility checker?

Getting turned down for credit affects your credit rating – making it harder for you to get credit in the future. Using our credit card eligibility checker won’t show on your credit record and you’ll be able to apply knowing how likely you are to be accepted. There’s no harm to your credit rating so it won’t affect your ability to get credit at a later date.

1. You’ll collect Avios on new purchases, but not on balance transfers, money transfers and transactions that make up your cash balance. These include cash withdrawals, wire transfers and buying currency. You won’t collect Avios for any transactions that are later returned or refunded. You also need to keep to the terms and conditions of your account and stay within your credit limit. You can find out more about collecting and spending Avios PDF (315KB), including which purchases are eligible.
