Completing an eligibility check will search your credit file without leaving a footprint which other lenders can see. Eligibility checks do not affect your credit rating.
What does the Eligibility Check result mean?
The cards eligibility check will simply give you an indication of whether you are likely to be accepted for one of our credit cards based on your individual credit file.
Does the Eligibility Check affect my credit rating?
No, the eligibility check completes a quotation search which does not impact your credit rating.
Why might I see a different rate during the application process?
When you apply for a Credit card, the rate you will see is the standard Credit card rate (APR). Once you have completed the full application the actual rate will be updated. The actual rate offered following the full Credit card application may be different to the indicative rate quoted as it will include a credit check and affordability assessment. We reserve the right to decline any application for credit facilities.
