Applying for a second credit card
As an existing Halifax credit card customer you can apply for a second credit card.
A second Halifax credit card could give you additional flexibility over your finances with the ability to keep balances separate by using a second card for a specific purchase, event or to consolidate existing credit card debt from other lenders.
A second card may also give you the opportunity to take advantage of different credit card features. You may also be able to redistribute your credit limit between your existing credit cards.
How could a second card help you?
For example, you’re paying off a balance on your existing credit card but would like to put day-to-day spending on a second card.
This could give you the flexibility to keep your current card and apply for a second card.
How to apply for a second credit card:
1. Check you’re eligible to apply.
