- Look for the red outlined “Apply Now” icon and click through

Managing Your Account
In common with the budgetcard account, saver account and easy saver account, the product can be fully managed online, enabling you to:
- Make payments on the balance

Accessing Your Account on postoffice.co.uk
Once your application has been processed, you will be sent a user ID and six Digit Security Number, which you will need in order to sign in to view your account details. If you wish, you can change the security details by contacting Customer Services on 0845 607 6500.
Forgetting your Log-in Details
If you lose or forget your sign in data and incorrectly complete the signing in process three times, your account will be locked. To get the account unlocked, it is necessary to contact Customer Services on 0845 607 6500.
Your credit card can be used abroad, but all cash withdrawals will incur a charge of 2.5% or 3GDP, whichever is greater. Interest is also charged on international cash withdrawals even if the balance is immediately cleared.
Using Your Card
It should be noted that although the product is issued by the Post Office, it cannot be used as a payment method for car tax or the fingerprint, photograph and signature information needed for “Biometric Residence Permit”.
This should give you all the information you need to begin enjoying the benefits which high-quality financial products can bring.
