The representative example is an illustration of the rate that the majority of customers will get. If a credit card is described as having a particular representative APR, then at least 51% of the applicants accepted will get that rate. Other customers may get a different rate based on their individual circumstances.
We use an example borrowing amount of £1,200 to calculate our representative example but in reality this figure could be different. This figure is
not the credit limit you will be receiving and is for illustrative purposes only.
The purchase rate is the rate of interest you'll be charged on purchases made with your credit card after any introductory offer has ended. A variable rate means that your interest rate may change over time.
Annual Percentage Rate (APR) tells you how much your borrowing will cost over an average year. It takes into account interest charged as well as any additional fees you'll have to pay (such as any annual fees). This figure is given to allow you to make an easy and fair comparison between different credit cards.
We treat all applications on an individual basis. So the APR you get is determined by the details supplied on your application, along with an
independent verification of your credit and repayment history.
