Interest Free Period

Maximum 56 days from date of transaction for new purchases, non-sterling cash withdrawals and any balance and money transfers on a promotional rate that have been added to your account since your last statement if you pay your main balance (excluding any promotional balance with a 0% interest rate) and any monthly instalment plan payments (if you've taken out any instalment plans) in full and on time each month.
Note - Your main balance is your current statement balance less any instalment plan balance.

No interest free period on sterling cash withdrawals (this is subject to any interest free promotional offer).

Any instalment plan you take out is interest free until the end of the plan.

Interest Charging Information

If interest is payable, it will be charged over the following period:

Purchases, non-sterling cash withdrawals, balance and money transfers from the date the transaction is added to your account until the date of your last statement before the transaction is paid in full.

Sterling cash withdrawals from the date the transaction is added to your account until it is paid in full.

If your main balance and any Instalment Plan payments due for that month are not paid in full, interest will be charged on all items in your main balance. Interest is charged on a daily basis. By repaying more of your balance, or by making your repayments earlier, you will pay less interest.

Your simple purchase and cash interest rates will move up and down in line with changes to the Bank of England Base Rate. Base Rate changes will not apply to your promotional or Instalment Plan interest rates.

We work out how much interest we charge each month using a simple interest rate. We also show you the compound equivalent as it takes account of interest you will pay on interest if you do not repay your total outstanding balance in full each month.

Allocation of Payments

Your payments will be applied in the following order:

Make any purchase plan payments due for that month;

Reduce your main balance (your statement balance less any purchase plan balance). We'll start with the balances charged at the highest interest rate first and then reduce the lower rate balances; and then

If you've taken out any purchase plans, to reduce any remaining purchase plan balance

 

For further details, please refer to your credit card terms and conditions.

Minimum Repayment

The highest of:

  1. £5 (or the full outstanding balance if it's less than £5)
  2. 2.25% of your main balance plus any purchase plan instalments due for that month 
  3. An amount equal to any interest, default fees or account maintenance fees that have been added to your account since your last statement, plus 1% of the rest of your main balance plus any purchase plan instalments due for that month 

If you only make the minimum payment each month it will take you longer and cost you more to clear your balance.
