What will be paid off first?
Your monthly payments will pay off balances with the highest interest rate first, in this order: cash transactions, purchases, balance transfers and money transfers, and then default charges (plus any interest or charges incurred as a result of those balances).
Credit cards are designed to be a flexible form of borrowing. Paying the minimum amount every so often can help you manage your money more effectively, although we would not recommend that you make minimum payments for a long period of time once your promotional offers have ended. Once your account is open, you can set up a Direct Debit for any fixed amount over the minimum payment by calling 0845 606 2172. Lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
For longer term borrowing it may be more appropriate to choose a loan from us. If you would like to find out more about this you can call Lloyds Bank Personal Loans on 0800 092 6290. or visit lloydsbank.com/loans or call into a Lloyds Bank branch, where our staff will be happy to help.
