Balance Transfer Credit Card

Enjoy up to 28 months with no interest to pay on balance transfers

Balance Transfer Card

Why pay interest when you don’t have to? If you’ve got outstanding balances on other credit cards or store cards and are paying a higher rate of interest, you could save money by transferring them. This card has our longest 0% interest period on balance transfers.

  • 0% interest on balance transfers for up to 28 months from account opening, with a 2.98% fee. We may offer you a 0% interest period of 22 or 16 months instead depending on your individual circumstances.
  • 0% interest on money transfers to your bank account for up to 28 months from account opening, with a 3.94% fee. We may offer you a 0% interest period of 22 or 16 months instead depending on your individual circumstances.
  • The 0% interest rates apply to any transfers made within the first 90 days of opening your account. You can transfer up to 95% of your available credit limit.
  • Your introductory rates will be withdrawn if we don’t receive your minimum payment on time and in full. Direct debits and payment due date alerts can be set up through online banking after your account has been opened to help you avoid paying late or missing a payment.

What is APR?

APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate. It shows you how much your borrowing will cost over the period of an average year, over the term of your debt. It also helps you compare different cards on the market.

After a 0% period, the amount of interest you'll need to pay on any outstanding balances will be determined by the APR. Don't forget that the length of 0% period on your purchases and balance transfers might be different.
