Money transfer credit cards
A money transfer is where you move funds from your credit card to your bank account to give you a bit more flexibility. This could come in handy for sorting any unexpected bills, or where credit cards aren’t accepted.
Money can only be transferred to a UK current account in your name from your credit card. Once it’s there, you can use your debit card or cash in the usual way.

Frequently asked questions
Instead of listing every credit card we offer, we’ll only show you cards you’re eligible to apply for, so you can make an informed choice about which cards will suit your needs.
The right credit card for you depends on what you want to use it for, and on your personal circumstances. For example, if you want to combine existing card balances, then a balance transfer credit card might be useful.
We’d suggest reading through everything on this page and on our website, so you understand exactly which credit card is right for you. We also have a handy guide on choosing the right credit card.
A credit card can help you manage your finances, but it needs to be the right choice for your needs. Other borrowing options might be more suitable depending on what you need it for.
For example, if you’re looking to build an extension on your home, a credit card might not be the right way to fund it. A loan might be more suitable as you can spread the repayments over an affordable term. However, if you need more flexibility with your monthly repayments, a credit card could be a better option.
