NatWest and the Royal Bank of Scotland have extended the availability of the Platinum MasterCard, a move that will greatly increase the card's appeal.

Previously only available to existing current account customers, the card is now open to all new customers.

This is a very positive move for the credit card market, and with a 15-month term on introductory balance transfers, the product is very competitive.

However, the card's other features – a short introductory purchase term and average standard purchase rate – are relatively limited.

Nevertheless, this product is worth four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
