NameSwitch Guide Series
Changing your name requires amending many different documents. Store loyalty cards can often get forgotten or put to the back of the stack.
NameSwitch is a company that aims to make changing your name easy and quick.
While we provide a free name change checklist to anyone who fills in our online form, it’s impossible to list all of the loyalty cards that a person could possiblyown! So we’ve produced this handy guide to changing your name on loyalty cards to help work out which companies and organisations you’ll need to notify about your name change.
Our top tips for changing your name on loyalty cards
NameSwitch doesn’t usually cover online loyalty cards, local companies or store cards as there are literally thousands with more launching all the time.
We’ve learned that changing your name on loyalty cards isn’t always
straightforward. We highly recommend that you contact the respective
customer service departments to request further guidance. However, if
you decide to purchase an award-winning nameswitch toolkit(link)
you may be able to use the generic letters that have been created in
your NameSwitch pack.
Please note that some online companies are not always able to change the name that was originally supplied when the account/card was set up. If you’re not sure if this applies to you we recommend that you explore the loyalty card issuer’s FAQ page or community chat.
But, as we’re eager to help you with changing your name, we’ve collated contact details for some of the most popular loyalty cards and listed them below to get you started.

A final word
Sometimes it can be easier and quicker to start over.
By this, we mean that you could effectively create new accounts with the businesses you hold loyalty cards with before asking for the balance of the points you’ve accumulated so far to be transferred across to the new account/card. Do not close down your old account before having the points transferred.
This may sound drastic but some accounts, particularly those associated with a username that includes your original surname aren’t always straightforward to change.
Obviously, loyalty cards are just one of the many items that may require alteration as part of the changing your name process and we know from personal experience how much time and effort is required to cover all your bases.
