Overview

YourPoints World MasterCard from NatWest is a standard credit card with a fair range of features for flexible borrowing. It has a competitive interest rate.

Interest Charges

This credit card has a representative APR of 17.9%. This rate applies to purchases and is the effective rate (including fees) that you will be charged.

Interest Free Period

An interest free period of 56 days is provided by NatWest. This period is the number of days after a transaction before interest is applied to the balance. If the balance is cleared in full within this time, no interest will be charged to your account.

Balance Transfers & Purchase Intros

Most card issuers offer balance transfer cards which allow borrowers to transfer debt from one credit card to another (typically a new additional card) and avoid or defer paying interest on the amount transfered for the duration of the offer. Most issuers will charge a one-off charge of up to 4% if a balance transfer is used.

0% introductory purchase offers allow customers to make purchases on a credit card without incurring interest over the duration of a deal - which is typically 6, 12, or 14 months. Such offers allow users to borrow money at no cost providing that minimum repayment costs are met each month and any purchase balances are cleared before the end of the offer.

We suggest visiting the NatWest web site for information on the latest offers.


Annual Effective Rates (AER) Explained

Certain interest rates are expressed as Annual Effective Rates to factor the compounding of interest charges and fees over time periods (days / months) during a year. As different issuers of credit cards may incur interest and fee charges at seperate stages, AER is a recognised method of making composite comparisons of interest charging financial products and services.

Re-payments

NatWest require a minimum repayment each month. This is in addition to paying off interest, fees, ppi premiums (optional), and a part of the annual fee if applicable. The minimum monthly re-payment is often subject to a minimum amount in pounds. If the outstanding balance is less than the specified minimum then the balance must be paid in full.

If you only ever pay the minimum amount required, it will take longer to clear the balance and the overall cost of using the credit card may be higher.


Fees

The YourPoints World MasterCard does not have an annual fee. There is a minimum cash advance charge of £3.00. The card has a transaction fee of 2.75% for international use where a currency conversion to sterling is undertaken.

Usage Incentives

NatWest has a points scheme, where points are awarded for purchases which can be redeemed at a later point with certain retailers. The majority of schemes offer one or two points per pound spent using the credit card.

The YourPoints World MasterCard does not have a cash back rewards scheme.
