The card's standard purchase rate has increased to 17.9% APR, 1.385% per month and 17.95% per annum (previously 1.312% pm and 16.94% pa, 16.9% APR).

The card is now the most competitive for debt transfers in terms of length, but the balance transfer cap is unusual when compared to other institutions.
