If you already have a Lloyds Bank account, you can use Internet Banking to see your credit card balance alongside your other accounts. You can instantly make transfers to your credit card, and keep an eye on what you’re spending.
It’s free and easy to manage your credit card online:
- see your credit card balance as well as up to three months’ transaction history
- manage your PIN
- pay your credit card online
- apply to increase or decrease your credit card limit (subject to status)

If you are the cardholder, you can request an additional card for a family member or someone else over 18 years old. All transactions appear on a single monthly statement, so you can easily keep track of family spending.
Keep in mind that the original cardholder remains responsible for all spending on the account made by the additional cardholder.
Requesting an additional card for a new cardholder is simple:
Your monthly credit card statement includes details about your minimum payment , and when it’s due. Just bear in mind, if you can’t pay the whole statement balance, it’s a good idea to pay as much as you can, as it may help to keep any interest costs down.
There are a number of payment options available, including Direct Debit, debit card, bank transfer and cheque. Just make sure you pick a method that will get your payment to us on time.
