I thought that a new UK credit card was to be introduced from Aug 18. Does anyone have information on that.I know there is still SPG UK card around.
I would love a new card, I don't think the old SPG one is worth it any more you got gold in the old system if you spent 15 thousand a year which was not bad but gold has now been devalued and its not worth the £75 a year! AMEX should have increased it to plat
yes and I remember that when the new programme was announced in April, it did mention new credit card in the UK in August. So would be good to know the plan for that.

Thanks. However, when I click on that link I get the following message on the screen. Is it just me or everyone getting same message?
I can't access it either when I clicked on the Apply Now button, but I thought that was because of my US based IP address. They say the problem is temporary, so you might need to give it a day or two.
That look like the old UK Marriott credit card to me. It's been "temporarily not accepting applications" for several years.
yes that seems to be the case. No news yet on the new UK CC it seems.
I’m afraid you’ve been pointed to the old UK credit card that has for many years been closed to new applicants. In any event it’s completely overshadowed by the far better SPG AMEX which pays 3 new scheme points per £ spent, 6 per £ at Marriotts, but you do need to be aware of the £75 annual fee. Marriott has committed to provide a Marriott branded card into the U.K. in 2018, although I don’t know what it’s incentives will be. Bearing in mind the EU 0.3% interchange cap I can’t see it’ll beat the SPG AMEX, though.
I heard it will 100k points after spending £300, £15 per year fee, just to compensate for all the rubbish deals we had in the past... also It will also give automatic European Citizenship from December 2018... Complimentary entry to any Brighton and Hove Albion home games, the team Amex sponsor.
Or maybe it was all a dream...
Well it all sounded great till you mentioned the Brighton games, theres a single negative so bad that it negates all the good bits - I’m out!
Its compulsory to get the 100k points... and its closer to Dover....
LoL....I am personally only interested in Elite nights credit....
Seems no further news / updates on the UK credit card. I would have gone for the SPG card but it does not provide elite nights credit.
