    No Stupid bank Rules - 12 months 0% on purchases, 0% on balance transfers and 0% on cash advances

Metro Bank, Britain’s first new High Street bank in over 100 years is celebrating its one year anniversary on Friday July 29th, by offering all new and existing customers a fantastic credit card offer. Metro Bank has launched a 0% MasterCard® for 12 months that will give customers 0% APR on purchases, balance transfers and cash advances.

Metro Bank Says “Thank You”
The new credit card offering is unlike any other credit card currently on the market, it offers customers 0% APR for 12 months, however they choose to use it, be it for purchases, balance transfers or cash advances. Customers need a Metro Bank current account to be eligible for the exclusive offer. There is a 3% handling fee applied to balance transfers on new credit card applications but no charge on balance transfers to customers with existing credit cards. You are able to transfer balances to your Metro Bank credit card up to 75% of its limit.

Craig Donaldson, Chief Executive Officer at Metro Bank, commented: “To celebrate our first Birthday all existing and new credit card customers will enjoy 0% interest for 12 months however they choose to use it. Whether it be purchases, cash withdrawals or balance transfers it is the same 0%. We promised no stupid bank rules and this deal proves that one year after we first opened our doors, we are continuing to deliver on our promise”
