Product update: new credit card offers

4 November 2015

Nationwide has today launched a new introductory purchase and balance transfer offer on its Select Credit Card and Nationwide Credit Card. Select Credit Card customers will also now benefit from an introductory £25 reward.

The cards will now offer new customers1 looking to transfer an existing balance 0% interest for the first 12 months with no balance transfer fee applying. The cards also offer no interest charges on new purchases for the first 12 months.

The Select Credit Card, which is available to main current account customers2, is also offering customers who spend or undertake a BT for at least £25 on the card within the first 60 days an additional £25 reward on top of the 0.5% cashback already available on all sterling purchases. The Select Credit Card will continue to offer customers commission free usage abroad.

All previous balance transfer and introductory purchase offers have been withdrawn.
