Transfer your balances from other credit cards without paying interest on your transfer for two years
If you owe money on another credit card that charges a higher rate of interest, you could save money by transferring the balance to this card.
With our Balance Transfer Credit Card you can move your balance and pay 0% interest for two years.
This means you can pay off your credit card debts with one card without having increasing interest to pay.
Combine your credit card debts
If you owe money on several credit cards, combining them all in one lower interest credit card could save you money.
You can help to minimise the amount of interest you pay in the following ways:
- Setting up a Direct Debit.
- Making at least the minimum monthly payment.
Paying more than the minimum monthly repayment. This means you’ll be charged less interest and you’ll repay what you owe more quickly.
You will need to pay whichever is the greatest amount out of:
- 2% of the amount you owe, as shown as on your statement or £5
- or 1% plus fees, interest and charges.
If the balance shown on your statement is less than £5, your minimum payment will be all of this amount.
- If you make only the minimum payment each month, it will take you longer and cost you more to clear your balance.
Missing and late repayments
Unlike some banks, if you miss or make a late repayment you will not be taken off the introductory balance transfer offer.
- You will have to pay a late payment fee of £10 and this could impact your credit rating.
- There is no annual fee for having this card.
