I’ve had the Tesco card for about 10 years but I’ve never really used it. I got it because if you used the linked clubcard you got more points on Tesco fuel or something (and could pay with amex), but then they introduced the current account which got even more points so the credit card went into a drawer.

I think they’ve sent me that letter every 2-3 years and then I just do a small transaction to keep it open. I may actually be in profit from having the card as they messed up with my first direct debit and gave me £25 compensation, but I may have spent less than £25 on the card ever – plus there is another oddity about the card which is best not mentioned on a public forum.

Also unlike any other bank / card provider I’ve been with, Tesco used to send out new cards by Special Delivery which must have cost them a fortune.
