We work out interest on the average daily balance during each statement period. You will not pay interest on new purchases if you pay your statement balance, excluding any promotional balance transfers in full and on time. Otherwise, the period over which interest is charged is as above. The transaction date is the date the amount appears on your account.

Allocation of payments We allocate payments to balances which show on your current statement in a high to low interest rate order, then, to balances in a high to low interest rate order which do not yet appear on your statement.
Minimum payments
  • Where there is a balance on the account, you must pay us a minimum monthly payment equal to (i) any default charges and interest due on your statement plus 1% of the remaining statement balance, or (ii) £25, whichever is higher
  • If the balance is less than £25 you must pay what you owe us in full.
