Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest have opened the availability of the Platinum Credit Card Mastercard to all customers who apply online.

The rates and deals remain unchanged; there is a competitive balance transfer deal of 0% for 16 months, as well as an average purchase rate of 16.9% APR.

It's important to note this particular deal is only on offer to those who apply online.

If applying via a branch or by telephone, you must be an existing current account customer.

Such customers will, however, receive a longer 0% for six months on purchases, but will also incur a higher purchase rate of 17.9% APR.

For appealing to the masses, this deal earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
