Interest payments - give me a break!

first direct offers boutique getaway for customers taking out a new Credit or Gold Card

first direct has launched a new offer for existing customers who open a Credit Card or Gold Card.

Customers will receive a free night for two at boutique getaway on top of the existing interest free periods on either balance transfers or purchases, depending on the card.*

Nick Harrison, Commercial Director at first direct , said first direct was the first bank to pioneer moving away from a cash offering to new current account customers, and it’s been so successful we wanted to extend this to credit cards.

“We’re known for our customer service, so as well as competitive rates we want to give our customers something more when they open and use one of our credit cards. This offer gives customers something they can share with someone special and a great experience to boot.”

first direct ’s Credit Card offers 20 months at 0% APR on balance transfers. A balance transfer fee of 2.99% applies on all transfers.

first direct Gold Card offers 12 months at 0% on new purchases.
