Credit card interest rates explained

There are three main types of interest rates that apply to your Lloyds Bank credit card:

  • Promotional rates on balance transfers, money transfers and purchases
    This can include interest free periods or a low interest rate for the life of a balance on your credit card. Fees may apply on balance transfers and money transfers. To keep any promotional rate, you'll need to make the minimum payment on time each month and stay within your limit
  • Up to 56 days interest free on purchases if you make your payment in full by your payment due date
    If you don't make your payment in full then standard interest rates apply from the date of the purchase until the balance is paid in full
  • Standard interest rates for balance transfers, money transfers, cash advances and purchases
    Standard interest rates apply on balance transfers, money transfers, cash advances and purchases once a promotional period has ended. If you're unsure what interest rate you're being charged please refer to your credit card terms and conditions.
