‘I Was Mor­ti­fied When My Card Was Re­jected’


Look’s Fea­tures Editor Giselle Wainwright ex­plains…

‘Iwas re­cently at a restau­rant with my friends and de­cided to buy a round of drinks for us all to cel­e­brate my BFF’S pro­mo­tion at work. So imag­ine my hor­ror when my bank card was re­jected in front of ev­ery­one – it was ut­terly mor­ti­fy­ing.

Luck­ily, I had my credit card with me, so I man­aged to save face – but it was still em­bar­rass­ing.

When it comes to plan­ning ahead now, I couldn’t live with­out it. Spend­ing time with the girls takes a bit more time and ef­fort as we live all over the coun­try, so we need to book things way in ad­vance. Thanks to Nod­dle, I was ac­cepted for the right credit card – so I can book six tick­ets to see Bastille on tour and pay the bal­ance off month-by-month, know­ing my friends and I have an in­cred­i­ble night planned. And that’s worth ev­ery­thing, right?’
