Most places do a percentage OR minimum payment, so if your balance is big enough you pay the percentage, if not you pay the minimum payment. For Next it looks like that minimum is £10...they do it to reduce the overheads and costs of processing tiny payments...

Shell, do you know what the percentage rate is on the next account? I think (by googling) it's about 26-27%, which is HORRIBLY high.

You'd be better off paying off your next account in full each time you use it. If your funds don't really allow you to do this, still pay it off in full, but use your normal credit card to help you out for a different necessity - like food shopping. I'm sure the APR on your normal credit card will be lower than the next account.
