Introductory offers explained

Balance Transfer Offer

The balance transfer offer period starts when you transfer the borrowing on to the Member Credit Card. You need to make balance transfers within 90 days of opening your account to get the 0% rate. Transfers made after that will be subject to your standard interest rate.

Balance transfer fees

This is the fee you're charged for transferring any existing borrowing on to this card. A 1.5% balance transfer fee applies for the first 90 days, after that it’s 2.4%. There is a minimum fee of £5 whenever you make a balance transfer.

For example, if you transferred £1,000 from another credit card the balance transfer fee, including the £5 minimum fee, would cost you:

  • £15 if you transferred it within the first 90 days of opening the card
  • £24 if you transferred it after the first 90 days of having the card

You may be eligible for different balance transfer offers in the future.

Purchases offer

The 0% purchase rate applies from the date you open your account.

After the introductory offers have ended

You’ll be charged your standard interest rate. This representative example shows the interest rate that could apply. This is the rate that we give to at least 51% of successful applicants. You could receive a different rate from the one shown and we’ll confirm your rate during your application.

Representative example

24.9% APR Representative (variable). Based on an assumed credit limit of £1,200 and a purchase rate of 24.9% p.a. (variable).

APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate. It can be used to compare the total cost of your borrowing with other providers.

Using your card abroad

The Member Credit Card comes with unlimited commission-free purchases, so you can travel the world without having to worry about unexpected charges.

Paying for purchases abroad

There are no fees for purchases overseas, so there’s no need to take lots of cash with you when you go on holiday.

Individual sellers may apply their own commission charges.

Spread the cost of your holiday

With credit cards there's no fixed end date for repaying your debt. You can spread the repayments for the cost of your holiday across however long suits you. Just remember to make at least the minimum repayment each month.

An introductory purchase offer allows you to take advantage of interest free borrowing. Don’t forget, the longer you take to repay your borrowing, the more you will pay in interest.

Withdrawing cash abroad

If you use your Member Credit Card for cash withdrawals overseas, you'll be charged interest at cash rates.

You'll also be charged a fee of 2.5%, or a minimum charge of £3.

Some cash machines may apply additional charges.

Managing your card

  • Control your credit limit
    We won't increase your credit limit without your permission. Stay in control through the Internet Bank, the app or over the phone.

  • Alerts to help you manage your money
    You'll automatically be signed up to free text alerts. We'll let you know when you're close to your credit limit, or when your introductory offer is about to end.

  • Purchases between £100 and £30,000 are protected
    If you've paid for goods or services on your credit card and something goes wrong, you may be able to make a claim for a refund. For example, if goods are faulty or simply don't show up. It applies even if you've paid for part of the price with your credit card, in the UK or abroad. This is known as a Section 75 claim.

  • Contactless payments
    It's pretty standard these days, but just so you know, you can make contactless payments with your Member Credit Card up to £100.
