Terms and Conditions
SAVE MONEY BY SWITCHING TO THE PARTNERSHIP CARD
When you transfer a balance from an existing credit or store card to the Partnership Card, you could start saving money on interest repayments straight away. We can transfer anything you owe your existing lender to your Partnership Card account quickly and with minimal fuss.
Switching to the Partnership Card could make the cost of your repayments more affordable. You'll receive an 18-month interest free period on your balance transfer after account activation (2.9% fee, minimum £5), although you’ll still need to pay interest on any purchases you make. Please note, we’re unable to process balance transfers from all cards.
