If I take advantage of the 5.95% p.a. balance transfer offer, what interest will I pay on my new purchases?
You'll pay the standard purchase interest rate on any new purchases you make with your card, as purchases made using the card do not qualify for the 5.95% p.a. rate. The 5.95% p.a. rate1 only applies to balances transferred until that balance has been repaid in full. It’s important to note that all credit card repayments you make will first go to charges and interest accrued, then to cash advances and purchases, followed by balance transfers. This means any balance transfer amount won't start being paid off until any cash advances or purchases made on your card have been paid in full. Please see the balance transfer page for more information and full terms and conditions.
