Guide to nuba credit cards
nuba is a new credit card brand, launched in 2016 by established credit card provider, MBNA.
The new brand was created following extensive market research, and is intended to offer straightforward, flexible and competitively-priced credit services.
MBNA is one of the most prominent credit card brands, offering a wide range of different cards. It is the European credit card arm of Bank of America, one of the largest financial institutions in the world.
MBNA now boasts a large portfolio of credit cards, including balance transfer cards, cards for purchases and low rate cards.
MBNA also has many different co-branded credit cards. It's responsible for providing cards to various airlines, football and rugby clubs as well as charities.
MBNA credit cards are fully regulated by the city regulator the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Credit cards give you valuable consumer protection that cash and debit cards don’t.
Under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act, if you pay for goods or services using a credit card, the card provider is jointly liable with the retailer if something goes wrong.
This protection only applies to items or services costing between £100 and £30,000. So, for example, if you ordered a bed costing £500 and the shop you bought it from goes bust before it is delivered, the credit card provider should provide you with a full refund.
