Part one of your application

To make everything as clear as possible we've summarised some of the key information below.

You need to read through this carefully before you apply.

How your interest offers work

Your balance transfer offer

0% balance transfers can only be made within the first 60 day from account opening.

To keep your 0% rates

You'll need to stay within your credit limit and make at least your minimum payment on time each month. If you don't, your 0% rates will go up to your standard rate instead.

When your 0% purchase offer ends

You'll be charged interest at your standard rate for:

  • anything new you buy
  • any outstanding purchase balance on your account

You can still benefit from up to 56 days interest free on everything new you buy, but you do need to pay off your main balance (excluding any promotional balances) in full by your payment due date. Don't forget to make at least your minimum payments on time and to stay within your credit limit.

When your 0% balance transfer offer ends

You'll be charged interest at your standard rate on any outstanding balance transfer.

Credit limit

Your credit limit is based on what you tell us when you open your account and it takes account of any balance transfers you've indicated you'd like to make. If you indicate you'd like a balance transfer and don't complete it during the offer period (within 60 days of opening your account), we may have to reduce your credit limit. As a responsible lender, we try to make sure you don't borrow more than you can afford.

Managing your Barclaycard

Staying on top of your account

If you miss payments or go over your credit limit, you will incur additional costs through interest and fee charges; you will also lose any promotional interest rates. So please make sure you've read and understood the terms and conditions before you apply. You could build your credit rating over time as long as you always make your payments on time and stay within your credit limit. However, if you don't do those things, your credit rating could be harmed.

Bank of England Base Rate

Your standard and cash interest rates will move up and down in line with the Bank of England Base Rate. Base Rate changes will not apply to your promotional interest rates. To learn more visit: barclaycard.co.uk/understanding-interest.
