The &More MasterCard from Marks & Spencer Money continues to offer its competitive loyalty rewards scheme, but today its purchase rate increases by 1% to 18.9% and sadly its competitive life of balance deal, previously at 5.9%, now becomes 7.9% for only two years.

The nine months 0% on purchases is competitive, but the standard rate it reverts to of 18.9% means it could be a costly way to borrow once your deal finishes. With very few life of balance transfer deals on offer; the market is virtually disappearing before our eyes. With 4.9% fixed for five years available from First Direct, the new Marks & Spencer deals does not come close.
