If you are a mobile user download the NatWest mobile app here and then follow along with me.

But if you are a PC user then visit the official website of NatWest here

Once you are on the homepage of the NatWest Website/App, click on the Products(1) and then to Credit cards(2). Now choose a type of credit card(3) that you want.

If you are not certain which credit card to choose click here to view the details of the credit cards. Take a minute and go through the details and pick the one that suits you.

Since I had The NetWest Credit Card I will be going through that one.

You will be directed to a page similar like this if you too chose The NetWest Credit Card or any other Credit Card.
