    • Balance transfers. This card does not offer a balance transfer offer.
    • Cash advances. It's 9.95% p.a. for a cash advance with interest accruing from the transaction date. There will be an additional one-off cash advance fee.

    • Interest-free period. The TSB Low Rate Mastercard comes with an interest-free period of up to 55 days on purchases, excluding cash advances. Interest-free days are only in effect when the previous balance or minimum required payment has been paid.
