Mint products

Mint offers insurance for cars and homes, unsecured loans and credit cards to UK customers.

The Mint MC2 Card

In 2003 Mint introduced the Mint credit card, which by 2004 had taken a 3% share of the UK credit card market.[1] The card was offered as two versions, a standard credit card and the MC2 card which has the bottom right-hand corner removed.

The card cannot be read by a minority of older machines,[2] but does work in all ATMs. This was the first change to the shape of credit cards in the UK for 37 years.[3]

Other Products

Additionally, under the banner of MINT +, Mint offers travel services and a wine club.

MINT Gift Card

In September 2006 MINT launched a pre-paid debit card. Costing an initial fee the card can be prepaid for any amount between £10 to £250. Used in a similar way as the gift vouchers offered by a number of retailers, it is not, however, tied to any one store.[4]


No New Applications

Mint has now stopped taking new application of any kind for credit cards loans and insurance.
