I believe in having several different credit cards to cover different purposes and I got this card some years ago for three reasons: 1) 0% credit balance transfer My initial purpose for this card was to use it as part of my general stoozing strategy. This is where you take advantage of a credit...

Dull card design

Apply for and use a Nationwide Visa card you will not earn free loyalty points. Huh ? Well, Nationwide have basically decided that points based loyalty schemes only benefit a few people as you need to spend large amounts to get any decent return. So what they have done is create one with damm...

Interest free credit period on balance transfers

None

The Nationwide Credit Card - small piece of plastic, about 8.5cm X 5.5cm, doesn't look much, doesn't say much, but could be worth a lot to you !! Why ? How ? What's the deal ? Well there are two possible deals really - one for savers and one for borrowers. For Borrowers - (Please note - I am NOT...

“Nationwide Credit Card”

published 17/07/2001

No usless points earned

None yet surfaced

We all must know by now of the really hard push to sell us that horrible grossly-expensive extra insurance whenever we buy electricals. We’re usually sat down while we hear dreadful tales of items blowing-up just a couple of weeks out of guarantee, leaving Mr & Mrs Pleb with a heap of...

“What a refreshing change”

published 21/09/2002

low interest, little or no charge for foreign use

none that I can see

I have been a staff member of Nationwide Building Society for 15 years and, as expected I have one of each of their accounts - no money in most - its just because at first it was easier then shopping around. I then got the internet at home and started to do some research, as at the time I thought...

No commission charges, cover on purchases over £50

11.5% after first 6 months

I have this card for a single reason. It costs less than all the others I've seen when you use it abroad. Instead of the usual percentage and exchange fees you pay a simple 1.25% (correct at April 2004 - check website for updates). Much easier than worrying about how many whatevers to the pound...

“The Card what's the craic”

Usage Abroad

Ongoing APR

I have had a nationwide credit card for a number of years now. It started off with a credit limit of £2500. Now the limit is £4000. They seem to look at your credit rating every 6 months. The best thing about the Nationwide credit card is if you use the card abroad you will only be charged 0.5%...
