How do I request a balance transfer using the Mobile Banking App?

You can process a balance transfer from another credit card to your Tesco Bank credit card using the mobile banking app.



  1. In the Credit Card Account Management section of the app, Balance Transfer. The available funds to transfer and the fee amount will be displayed.
  2. Complete the form.
  3. On the next screen tick the box to confirm you wish to proceed.
  4. Enter your login details to complete the process.



  1. Select the menu button and then select Balance Transfer
  2. Tap Continue and you will be able to key in the amount you wish to transfer (the minimum and maximum amount you can transfer will be displayed.) 
  3. Scan or key in the credit card number from the account you wish to transfer the balance from and tap Continue.
  4. On the next screen tick the box to confirm you wish to proceed.
  5. Enter your login details to complete the process.


You can transfer up to 95% of your available credit limit but you won’t be able to transfer a balance between Tesco Bank credit cards. Please note that your available credit will not take into account any interest that is due to be charged to your account. So please ensure there are sufficient funds left to cover this and to help you avoid unnecessary fees.

Please note: don't include the @ symbol when putting in the contact details via private message, just Tesco-Bank.

For details like your DOB, postcode and phone number, we ask for you to format it with additional spaces, i.e. A B 1 2 C D, 2 4 1 0 2 0 1 6 and 0 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 otherwise the information is removed by the system.

Is Thier something seriously​ going wrong with Tesco Banking systems??

My Barclaycard​ credit card has been trying to deposit money into my Tesco Current account but, the Tesco sort code is no longer working, likewise my D/D payments are not transfering in a timely manner to Barclaycard. 

This may cost me my free interest money transfer I currently have with Barclaycard, which, of course will seek recompense.

Barclaycard claim these problems I'm experiencing to all down to Tesco Bank, who is causing the problem.

Im getting to the point of calling in the banking omnibusman.  

Desperately needing help




Hi @am29, I'm sorry that you're having trouble sending money to your current account - we've not been made aware of any issues with receiving funds. Your direct debit should be sent the day that this is sent, is this not happening?
If you message @Tesco-Bank with your full name, DOB and postcode with a space between each character we can certainly look into this for you and provide some assistance.

Hi Adam, thank you the response, the transfer from Barclaycard, is, I'm now informed all down to Barclaycard's systems?

They insinuated that it wasn't, it now turns out it is. Apologies for that, they steered me in the wrong direction.

My payments to them by D/D is arriving in a timely manner. 

Thank you again
