How to Apply for the L.L. Bean Credit Card

Bring the outdoorsmen inside you to the fore with the L.L. Bean Credit Card. Applying for this card is a simple process streamlined by credit powerhouse Barclaycard, and to make things even easier we have provided a brief tutorial below to help out any stragglers.


Before beginning the application ensure that you meet all of the following requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have a valid US mailing address (no PO boxes)
  • Have a valid Social Security number
  • Love hiking (jk)

How to Apply

In order to apply you must first go to this webpage and select the ‘Apply Now’ link which will redirect you to the secure form.



Step 1- General Information

Let’s get this application off the ground. First you’ll have to enter some basic personal information to help L.L. Bean and Barclaycard identify you. The specific information you’ll need is what follows:

  • Full name
  • US address
  • Duration at current address
  • Residence status



Step 2- Employment and Financial Information

You will have to give L.L. Bean a basic financial profile so that they may determine you creditworthiness, and thus your APR. The information you will need to have on hand is just what follows:

  • Occupation
  • Annual Income
  • Bank Assets



You have the option at this point to sign up for a $15 express delivery of your card, assuming you are fully approved.

Step 3- Contact Information

You will have to give Barclaycard some contact information, at least one phone number and a functioning email address. As with all of your information, there are specific rights that Barclaycard give themselves to capitalize upon this information, the least of which is reserving the right to solicit you through the provided contacts. In order to more fully understand their usage of your private data please read over their privacy policy here.



Step 4- Security Information

You are now asked to provide some additional identification information (Social Security number, birthdate, mother’s maiden name) so that Barclaycard can access your credit history in order to more accurately evaluate you.



Step 5- Paperless Statements

At this point L.L. Bean asks you to choose your preferred method of billing- paper or electronic. We encourage electronic billing for environmental reasons and for simplicity’s sake.



Step 6- L.L. Bean Email Updates

L.L. Bean gives you the option here to opt in for (or out of) promotional emails. This is unusual, and it only furthers L.L. Bean’s reputation as an upstanding business.



Step 7- Balance Transfers

Barclaycard allows you to transfer an existing balance (between $100 and $20,000) from any major card you may already own onto your new card. If you are interested in doing this then simply enter the information for the card and the desired amount you wish to transfer.



Step 8- Legal Terms and Conditions

All you have to do now is read the Terms and Conditions and decide, finally, if the L.L. Bean Credit Card is truly for you. Do the terms seem fair? Do they agree with your current financial situation? Great! Submit the application and start shopping.
