The Scout Association Credit Card

Credit _card

The Scout Association Credit Card, provided by MBNA, helps us raise valuable funds.

As our only official credit card, it supports Scouting with an initial contribution if you use your card within the first 90 days of opening the account and further contributions whenever you use it to make purchases.

By using it for everyday purchases – like buying lunch, doing the weekly shopping and filling up your car – you are not only supporting us financially but also increasing awareness of Scouting.

Every time you make a purchase with your Scout Association Credit Card, you will be helping to provide adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for 400,000 young people aged between 6 and 25. Best of all, this is at no extra cost to you.


  • £40 when you use your card within 90 days of the account opening
  • 25p for every £100 you spend on card purchases
  • £2 for every year your account remains open and active.
