Date: 22nd Dec 2015 | Posted in: Financial News, News

MBNA introduces new 39-month zero per cent balance transfer MBNA Platinum Credit Card

39-month balance transfer offer for a limited period 

MBNA has launched its longest ever balance transfer credit card, offering eligible new customers zero percent p.a. on balance transfers for up to 39 months and money transfers for up to 20 months from the account opening date (handling fees apply).*

The offer applies to transfers made within the first 60 days of account opening (a 2.98 percent handling fee applies to balance transfers and a 4 percent fee applies to money transfers). When these offers come to an end and for transfers made after the 60 days, the standard rate for balance transfers is 20.9% p.a. and for money transfers is 22.9% p.a. (2.98% handling fee for balance transfers and 4% handling fee for money transfers). All standard interest rates and handling fees are variable, so may differ from those shown after the offer ends.

The card is available for a limited period with a closing deadline of 12 February 2016 for applications.

“This new credit card enables eligible new customers to take advantage of the longest balance transfer and money transfer periods we’ve ever offered in the UK”, said Richard Whatmough, Director of Marketing and Digital at MBNA. “We’re committed to offering products that make it easier for consumers to manage their finances”.

The credit card also features the eligibility check, which enables consumers to find out if they are eligible before applying for the card without it affecting their credit rating. If they are not eligible, they may be offered an alternative MBNA product to consider.

Once a full online application is completed, a decision could be made in minutes. If a customer is approved, their card should be delivered within 10 business days.

The new MBNA Platinum Credit Card is also equipped with contactless technology. Learn more at
