MBNA And Virgin

MBNA and VirginThe reason that credit card customers are asking these types of questions related to MBNA and Virgin, are that these cardholders know that the credit card companies do not allow balance transfers between credit cards that are issued by the same company.

Virgin credit cards are promoted by Virgin Money but are actually issued by MBNA Bank Europe.

As a result, this means that balance transfers are not allowed between MBNA and Virgin credit cards.

If you have a MBNA issued credit card you cannot make a balance transfer to Virgin and similarly if you have a Virgin credit card you cannot make a balance transfer to another MBNA issued credit card.

All of the following credit cards will however accept a balance transfer from both MBNA and Virgin credit cards :-
