I think the amount due would be the amount outstanding when you’re billed. The amount shown on your credit card bill, which would obviously be less if you paid off some of the balance prior to receiving this. Usually you can then make a manual payment and the direct debit due would be adjusted accordingly, but they’ve just stopped this for some bizarre reason :/

zaheer2003

it is the worst time to get this "deal", wait for the £20/30 cash back deal that halifax were offering on the card to come back.

greg666

Good card, good advise regarding paying off the same day as I have not paid any interest so far when taking cash abroad. Happy with the card

jcluk

You were told correctly. Just pay it off immediately and all free

is it for the Halifax credit card. I have the app but never seen cashback. Where is it on the app?

DazLFC

Totally agree, while all the other banks are offering cashback that we could actually benefit from, Halifax seems to list the most random, obscure places, usually restaurants that aren't even local. Halifax are awful, poor cashback offers, decreased rewards, higher account fees and poor interest rates for savers

10% off at waitrose if you use your Halifax current account. Activate the reward on your app. As usual, it is account specific.
cherisher

No, you need to activate the deal. And then when you make a purchase, Halifax will refund 10% back in to your account. This is a copy and paste from the Halifax site. Earn 10% Cashback on all your grocery purchases at Waitrose until 16/09/2018 - in store or online at waitrose.com(maximum total reward of £30). Offer excludes purchases online that aren't made through Waitrose Groceries. Plus with myWaitrose membership you'll also receive rewards and offers tailored just for you. Join for free at waitrose.com/mywaitrose (separate terms and conditions apply). Pay with your debit or credit card (unless the offer states you must pay by Direct Debit) to get the cashback.

benjenkins

A great way to skip balance transfer fees is to get a Revolut, top up the Revolut from your new credit card and then transfer that to your old credit card. 🙏🏻

Bossworld

I suppose, I'm still new to it :) One card (31 months) is offsetting a 3 year ShareSave scheme. The low Santander limit spooked me a bit, as for obvious reasons, I'll need to hawk the balance off that card around the 30 month mark, for ~6 months. Couple of cards are just for day to day spending and get cleared off in full every month. The other two (Santander and previous x month offer supplier) are carrying the 0% balance from a previous share save that's sat in premium bonds. I may keep the other supplier's card open to give me wriggle room on the current sharesave but as above, it is a bit concerning if the option to BT somewhere else down the line isn't 100% guaranteed.

Star-Lord

Pretty much. You'll no doubt be paying more on interest on your existing card than you are the balance. With balance transfer cards you are simply paying off the balance with no added interest for the length of the promotional period. There's obviously a small fee to transfer but it is as straightforward as you think (y)

Done this easy £75

DevK

Hi all, I'm new to the concept of switching current accounts (surely not the only one) and have just been reading up on the current account switch service. Am I correct in thinking that you guys are suggesting to simply create a new current account with your existing bank - even if you only put £10 in it - and then have Halifax do the switch on that new account to get the £75 reward? Surely that's too good to be true? There must be a drawback?? Like somebody above mentioned something about credit checks etc? Otherwise why wouldn't people simply hop from account to account continually?

mrbond1

If you want A £3 reward every month then you need that

neilm22

I don’t know if it is, I saw it on MSE when I was ready to move it. I didn’t transfer it straight away as still have it. M&S want you to set-up an account with them first and then transfer it over so worth having a look and see if M&S still have the £125 gift card, if so take it out and in a month or so you can switch the account to M&S

cruisecars

is the m&s offer still current what did you do just transfer the £75 out straight away ?

Your minimum payment should be paid on time each month.

dragonfury

Is this for new customers only? Please be clear OP

Petetobin

UK law says that payments need to be allocated to the highest interest rate first. However, Clarity has one rate of interest so it falls to the T&Cs which state that it will go to your cash balance first. That means you can pay off just your cash balance. However, if you prepay then the balance will be allocated on a FIFO basis as the transactions arrive so be careful.

Gaminggirl

This card is the best. It's not all that hard to get either. I got it on extended maternity leave about 4 and a half years ago now. I was a housewife back then so no actual income of my own. I had a huge limit to start as well 5k so it can't be that hard to get. It is all we use abroad.

Anon32

Cool! If you got the barclay card you would get till the statement date to pay off atm withdrawals! However if you pay off straightaway via online banking then as you say you don't get charged. The Ethiopian birr is 35.35 and the mastercard rate is 35.32 so only .1% difference on the interbank rate. The visa rate is 35.14 making it .59% difference. As its the weekend revolut would be charging a 1% markup. Interesting that with more obscure currencies the difference between visa and mastercard is huge as its six times more. However as the markups ar so small to begin with in pound terms its nothing but interesting. Be interesting to see what the exchange is but I think its a closed currency so you cannot get it in the UK. Better to compare more open currencies but can't be bothered at the mo.

TiredParent

Does this appear under cash back extras? I've Just went into my account, and signed up for the first time. There is no active offers yet. :/

crumpetman

It's not exactly that. On selected Halifax reward accounts you can get shopping offers at certain retailers such as 10% cashback at co-op. You could buy anything at co-op and so long as you have applied the offer to your card then Halifax give you 10% back. To make the most of these offers you can use the paypoint machine to purchase digital topups. You could also buy physical gift cards or a combination of topups, gift cards and even groceries.

Does anyone know a way of withdrawing cash in the USA without incurring a fee? There always seems to be an ATM fee. I never get charged a fee in Europe.

I've never paid a £2 cash machine fee through Curve. The 1% conversion only occurs if you don't change the currency in the Curve app. If I travel to Germany, I just change it to Euros and point it at my Tandem card. That way I can withdraw euros for no charge, and actually enjoy 0.5% cashback through Tandem.

From recent experience I can confirm that the 5% ( or 10% or 15 % .etc ) Halifax cashback extra offer that you have to click to activate to receive money back on your shopping spend in Waitrose is also applied ( only the once ) to any cashback you request at the checkout till. I request £50 cashback at the Waitrose till and then go straight to the next Halifax branch & pay the £50 straight back in..i think the phrase is called ' double bubble' !

you only get 200 euros free per month though reading with the standard account.

sinjin_smythe

Simple solution to this to exchange your currency in advance of the weekend then you don't pay a surcharge, anything you dont spend just withdraw it after the weekend is over. At the weekend, major currency has a 0.5% surcharge to buy ie dollar pound and euro. Everything else 1.5%. If thats too much effort it's probably easier to get a card with higher exchange rates and don't worry about cheaper rates. For comparison right now on revolut 1GBP buys you : 1.3574 usd or 1.1322 euro https://blog.revolut.com/what-is-the-interbank-exchange-rate/

Maths is a bit off, 5% interest is per year not per month and you cannot pay in £8k per month unless you also withdraw most of it each month. Also you can't get the 5% interest rate (on the current account) if you've ever held a FlexDirect account before I don't know about "plenty of other examples" but here are the ones I know of which pay 5%: First direct 5% regular saver but must have First Direct current account and pay in £1k per month M&S 5% regular saver but must have current account Santander 5% regular saver but unless you can make good use of the current account the fee makes it not worthwhile HSBC 5% regular saver but must have current account and pay in £1750 per month.

jameswalker457

Yep. For example Nationwide. No DD requirement just pay in 1k a month. I've got one in both mine my partners and a joint account. That allows 7.5k at 5 pcent a month. Also unlocks 2 X regular savers max of 250 each So that's up to 8k a month. Plenty of other examples.

MrFlux001

This is why this site can be so inaccurate. You’re voting cold because you don’t trust yourself with managing money. Other people can manage their financial affairs in credit and would be grateful of knowing about a card such as this.

BFCsider

For my car, yes. For the house I was fortunate enough to be given it (yes I know I'm lucky and I am grateful). I'm sure you know I'm not talking about a mortgage as its a must for most. I'm simply on about a credit card (that doesn't secure you a mortgage) that in the wrong hands can cause havoc with people's lives. I know it's their own fault for being stupid but why give them the chance.

Unsure if it works on petrol. Think t&C's state no petrol station purchases usually. However... I believe that petrol stations accept Morrison's paper vouchers available in-store! As do the tills next week/month if you can afford to buy in bulk and it's your usual haunt!

Been using it for the relevant shops for a while now, just checked and I've activated Morrison's where I shop quite regularly but for me it was just 5%. 15% would have been great assuming I could use it for petrol purchase.
