BREAD Launches new
website and FREE
SMS Balance Checking

14th July 2008


We are very pleased to announce the launch of our new BREAD website We hope you enjoy the new look and feel.

For new customers the application process has been completely overhauled and for existing customers the login pages have been made more user friendly. We hope there are no problems but if you do find any, mail our web guys.

We have re-launched our SMS balance checking service and this time it's FREE! (it only costs you the price of a text on your mobile plan). Simply text ‘balance’ and the last four digits of your card to 80800 - NOTE THE NEW NUMBER. (NB For this service to work you need to ensure that you have registered your mobile number on your account – you can check this by logging onto your account by clicking here...).

We are also looking at making other improvements over the course of the next few weeks and will keep you updated as these come to fruition.

Finally, if you have any queries about your BREAD Card then please contact our friendly customer services team. We endeavour to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours.

That's all for now. We thank you for your custom.
