Notice on applying for a Partnership Card

Just so you know, you won't be able to apply for a Partnership Card between 19 August and 5 September 2016 as we're making some changes to our website. Apply before then, or check back from 5 September to see what's new.

How to apply for a partnership card™

Applying for your partnership card is quick and easy when you follow the simple steps below.

Make sure you can answer 'yes' to the following

  • Is your partnership card for personal use?
  • Do you have a UK residential address? (Excluding the Channel Islands)
  • Are you aged 18 or over?
  • Do you have a household income of more than £4,000 a year?
  • Do you have a good credit history?

If you've answered "no" to any of the questions, we probably can't take your application further today. However, if your circumstances change in the future, we're happy to hear from you again.

Change in circumstances

Do you foresee any changes in your circumstances that may affect your ability to repay this credit card?

For example:

  • An increase in living costs such as a rent, or mortgage repayments
  • Changes in employment situation such as imminent retirement, maternity, paternity, or extended leave
  • A reduction in working hours (fixed contract end date/zero hours contract)’

If you have answered yes to the above, you can still apply for a partnership card, but it must be via our application form leaflet which is available in any John Lewis or Waitrose shop. Alternatively, you can call us on 0345 300 3833 and we will send one to you by post.

Now you're ready to apply, all you need to do is:

  1. Have your bank and salary details to hand
  2. Click on the 'Apply now' button

This will open a new window on your computer, which may take a few seconds to load.

Are you a John Lewis Partnership employee?

If you are a Partner we cannot take your application for a partnership card online and you should collect a Partner application form in your branch.

However once you have applied and registered you will be able to manage your account online.
