A simple example to help you calculate

In this example, we’ll show you how much you would need to repay if you transferred £4,400 to our Longer Balance Transfer Card.

 

Check the fee

First, you’ll need to make a note of the fee to transfer a balance (if there is one). In this example, there is a 1.99% fee.

 

Calculate

Next, divide £4,400 by 100, then times by 1.99. In this example, the fee will be £87.56. So, the total amount you’ll owe including the fee is £4,487.56.

 

Repay

Lastly, divide £4,487.56 by 23 (the offer period). This means you’ll need to repay £195.11 per month to pay off the card before the 0% offer period ends.

The calculations above are for illustrative purposes only and based on balance transfers being made at account opening and being paid off in full by the end of the 0% period. Examples could change depending on when you transfer your balance, how you manage your credit card, your repayments and your account activity. When your 0% offers end, you'll pay your purchase rate on any new purchases or remaining balances.

Peace of mind with our 0% offer

If you miss a monthly repayment we won't remove your interest free offer, but you could still be charged  late payment fee.

What you should know

Please remember once your offer period ends, our credit cards offer the standard interest free period up to 56 days, as long as balances are paid in full.

 

If you carry any balance forward from a previous month (including 0% balance transfers), after your 0% purchase offer has ended, then interest will be charged on purchases from the date they are debited to your account.

Making a payment to your credit card

To make it really convenient, there are a number of ways you can pay every month.

Making a payment 

There are several ways you can pay your credit card. The most common is setting up a Direct Debit. Once you’ve set it up, the payment will be taken automatically each month. You can choose to pay the minimum amount, a fixed amount or your full credit balance every month.
 

You can also make a payment in the mobile app or Anytime Internet Banking.
 

What you should know 

If you set up a Direct Debit for the minimum, fixed or full amount, the payment is claimed 25 calendar days from the statement date, or shortly afterwards.

Other potential charges or fees 

Some other important information you should be aware of.

Late paying

 

If you’re late paying, we’ll charge you a fee of £12. That’s why setting up a Direct Debit makes sense – you’ll never be late paying again. We get that little mistakes are easy to make, so if you miss your payment due date by just one day, we won't charge you the late payment fee.
 

Over your limit

 

If you go over your limit we’ll charge you a fee of £12. If you only go over your limit by £12 or less, we won’t charge you. A good way to avoid going over your limit is to log onto Anytime Internet Banking or fire up our mobile app and check your balance before you make your next card purchase.
