Think of it a bit like the euro, where you have separate bank accounts in France and Germany but can put the same currency in either.
Just wanting to clarify that the Lloyd's card is different from the BA Amex, but the same as the SPG Amex, with no auto transfer of miles ?

Also wondering if you can elaborate on the problem you encountered. My BAEC is (currently) in Europe but I have a UK based Airmiles a/c. Am I not going to be able to make transfers from my Airmiles A/C and any miles I earn if I get a Lloyd's card, whilst my BAEC is based overseas ?
