So what exactly is a money transfer?

A money transfer lets you move credit from your Barclaycard directly into your UK current account to use as you wish – a speedy solution for when only cash will do.

Is a money transfer right for me?

A money transfer lets you access your credit as cash as quickly as the next working day – handy if you need to pay the plumber in a hurry or cover an unexpected bill. You can transfer up to 90% of your available Barclaycard credit – just remember that any money that your transfer into your current account will no longer benefit from purchase protection.

To get the most out of your money transfer be sure to make at least your minimum monthly card repayments on time, before your promotional period ends. If not, you could lose any promotional rates you may have, and revert to the standard rate.

There's a fee for each transfer, but it's a quick and convenient way to access your credit as cash for when only cash will do, plus 0% interest during your promotional period. The fee's added to your balance, and is usually between 1.9% and 2.9% of the amount you transfer. We'll let you know what your fee will be when you apply to make a transfer.

Here's an idea of what that means in practice.
