What is a representative example?

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.

How do we decide the APR you get?

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.

At least 51% of customers will get a representative rate of 18.9% APR (variable). Others will get a rate of either 21.9% APR (variable) or 25.9% APR (variable).

We should be able to give you a decision within 5 minutes.

Cost of Borrowing

Credit cards are designed to be a flexible form of borrowing. Paying the minimum amount every so often can help you manage your money more effectively, although we would not recommend that you make minimum payments for a long period of time once your promotional offers have ended. Once your account is open, you can set up a Direct Debit for any fixed amount over the minimum payment by calling 03457 28 38 48 . Lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For longer term borrowing it may be more appropriate to choose a loan from us. If you would like to find out more about this you can call Halifax Personal Loans on 03 45 600 4611 . (Lines are open 8am to 10pm, Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm on Saturdays and 9:30am to 5:30pm on Sundays) or visit halifax.co.uk/loans or call into a Halifax branch. where our staff will be happy to help.

The following example highlights the difference between only paying the minimum and paying a fixed amount:
