The political pressure to keep rates low through brexit will mean this …The political pressure to keep rates low through brexit will mean this could be a better bet for safe money then a stocks and shares based 5year deal, as the markets will be fragile if not unstable due to investments in the pound factoring For a decent return at todays rates, this is hot as its a deal that is safe, sure if you have the time and knowledge to play markets so be it. My stocks and shares isa funds have given me 1.8, 3.7 and 6.7% returns over the last 3 years, and they are "stable funds.


You must be invested in a poor fund to get returns like this might want to change it. However you have gained an average of over 4% p.a from your Stocks and shares ISA far higher than 2.5%

I used to work for these clowns, they've been absolutely convinced of a 'guaranteed' rate rise for years. Never happened, and was never even close to happening. The work that me and others had to do at the drop of a hat to plan for this dead cert rise was all wasted. Every time.

You will not get 5% per month, nor will you get 5% of the total amount you have managed to save in one year.£10,000 dripped in to an 5% AER account equally over the year will actually only equate to about 2.7% APR over the year.


If you're silly enough to keep the £10,000 in a 0% paying account, sure.

A bit like the Nationwide flex regular saver 5% but the maximum is £500 per month . Weird that they put a cap on how much you can save a month then let you open multiple accounts .


It was an oversight, they never meant to allow people to open more than one. They would have closed the extra accounts, and they did exactly that with the non-ISA version of the saver, but they weren't specific enough with the ISA terms, and it then became closed after a day or two due to heavy demand. The end result, in this case, would have been that 1 person ended up with 7 accounts, rather than 7 people each with 1 account as Ford would have intended.

It's a bit meaningless for it to have been brought up at all in this thread, being a clear error by Ford Money.

If so, would it be worth it ?


I'm not sure what you mean a balance transfer is debt from exisiting cards to another card you cannot balance transfer mortgage debt to a card.

You're saying you can move the money to your current account but its debt so you'll have a negative balance and you need to have 3k overdraft with them to be able to do that! They will charge an apr for this

Then you could move it to a credit card but it would normally be a money transfer card with a fee of about 3% making it £90 quid to transfer it might work out cheaper than paying 4.5% apr but to be honest you'd be better just paying it off quicker rather than all this hassle

It is now optimised. I agree I'm not a fan mind. Took it out of a NIL fee last year and they added 3% so i queried it and they denied offering nil fee so i sent the confirmation email confirming what it said and they ignored it.
Also. I made a large purchase on it and paid it off the same month to avoid interest but they applied the payment against the previous months balance and then charged me interest on the purchase. I'm not expert but i thought it was standard practice to apply payment against interest accruing balances first.
Would avoid personally.[/quote]


If you paid the amount off before your purchase appeared on a statement, the payment would have been applied to the previous months balance.

Also, avoid spending on a balance transfer card because unless you have a 0% purchase offer, you'll usually pay interest on the purchase from the purchase date unless you clear the balance in full (including the balance transferred).

There's no such thing as a stupid question.
You normally can't get a balance transfer card if you already have a card with that bank.
There are plenty of balance transfer cards out there that you can transfer your current balance. This one is a good deal but there are others you can get if you already have a virgin card. The 0% periods range up to 40 months but you want a low transfer fee to make it worthwhile.

Stupid question... can you get a second card if you already have one and transfer from that?

Hi,

You pay back £1016 at the end of 32 months. Not just £16.
How it's explained above is that you transfer £1000 to your current account at a transfer fee of 1.6%. Then for 32 months you have the balance of £1016 at 0% interest. As long as you pay up your credit card before the end of 32 months. Then you won't be charged any extra. Making it a grand total of borrowing £1000 for £1016 over 32 months.

Sorry but you're incorrect. The capital isn't a cost.....

1) ''When companies borrow funds from outside lenders, the interest paid on these funds is called the cost of debt''

2) ''The main thing to consider before borrowing money is how much it will cost for you to pay it back. The true cost is the amount you are charged on top of the capital amount of the loan; such as the interest rate and additional fees. This will differ depending on your type of credit: Credit card, bank, a short term loan, family or friends''

much higher (4% ) fee if you would like to transfer the balance to your bank account

MSE have a good eligibility calculator for credit cards. It performs a 'soft search' on your credit file that you can see but can't be seen by lenders. It's a useful tool in that it helps you to not apply for cards you probably won't get (which in itself can **** up your credit score). Yes, he's a bit smug but credit where credit is due and all that....

HEAT. Anyone who overspent to a ridiculous amount at Christmas, I say tough.

2.79% is the balance transfer fee.
0% on any purchases in first 3 months.
0% on money transfers for 38 months but add 4% for this portion of your balance transfer, not 2.79

I've just done AA as I only have a small amount to move around. But savings are savings and this deal should beat most people existing account APRs.

MONEY Street of life, how festive....



Street of Light, it's Light not life. Y'know, if you join up just to make a sarcastic / cynical / critical comment, it loses any impact it might have had when you get it monumentally wrong. Just sayin'.

Thanks OP, got my tickets. Looking forward to it.

Hi - I received mine within 4 days of applying.Dave


Thanks for the reply.
I phoned up and reported it. I didn't receive a single thing in the post.
Not very helpful service either. Waited 10 minutes before an answer then put on hold again.I was asked some stupid security questions, like: how much was my last payment, erm let me think...........especially as I'm phoning to report a card that Ive never used because Ive never received it.

Do they not revert the transaction and send the money where it came from?



None questioned me so much - the only 1 provider mentioned reverting so simply ask them to close account. Don't give them the opportunity or go ahead to revert the transaction. I don't recollect which provider it was but FYI I have put cards from Nationwide, First Direct, Barclaycard, Virgin in credit without any problems.
