      Repayment tips

      Getting started

      • Check your budget and see if you could increase your fixed payments even by a few pounds each month. This will help you pay off your balance faster and reduce the amount of interest you pay.
      • Change to a fixed monthly payment by Direct Debit instead of paying the minimum each month. This could help save you money over the long term.
      • Setting up a Direct Debit also means you’ll never miss a payment. Missing payments could mean being charged a fee and affect your credit score.
      • Make a one-off payment if you have money left over in your budget.
      • If you can, pay your balance in full each month. This way you won’t pay any interest at all.

        Repayment terms explained

        Balance/Full balance - The amount you have left to pay off on your credit card this month.

        Fixed amount - An amount chosen by you to pay each month, usually via a Direct Debit. In your Tesco Bank account this is called a set amount.

        Interest rate - Your interest rate is the price you pay for borrowing money. You can usually find the yearly interest rate or APR (Annual Percentage Rate) on your statement, credit card agreement or by contacting your provider.

        Minimum payment - A minimum payment is the minimum you must repay on your credit card each month. We work out how much this is based on your card's interest rate and how much you've borrowed. Check on your statement to see which minimum repayment rate applies to your card.

        Minimum payment rate - If you are a Tesco Bank customer, you will see one of three minimum payment rates on your monthly statement:

        • 1% card balance plus interest
        • 2% card balance
        • Double the interest plus £5
