Summary of credit cards from HSBC

"As a new HSBC Bank Credit Card customer, you'll benefit from 0% on a transferred balance for six months and a standard variable rate of 15.9% APR*.

While benefiting from a balance transfer rate, there is no interest-free period for purchases or cash withdrawals. The balance transfer also does not benefit from an interest-free period.

The 0% rate applies to balances transferred from non HSBC Bank/First Direct credit and store cards within 30 days of entering into your credit card agreement. The rate will last for six months from the date of the balance transfer. At the end of this time, the rate will go up to the rate then applicable to the standard balance. Balance transfers must not cause the credit limit applicable to the account to be exceeded.

The minimum repayment in respect of each statement is £5.00 or 3% of the Standard Balance (whichever is the higher) plus in relation to each balance transfer, £5.00 or 3% of the transfer balance (including interest), whichever is the higher, or the whole balance if it is less than £5.00. Applicants must be aged 18 or over. Written quotations are available on request. A cash advance handling fee of 1.5% (minimum of £1.50) is payable. Our credit is subject to status."
