  From Until
Purchases Date debited to your account Repaid in full
Cash advances Date debited to your account Repaid in full*
*If you pay the balance in full, the interest charge for the period from the previous statement to the date of full payment will be debited the following month. If you default in the introductory period you will lose the benefit of any Introductory Rate and your account will incur interest at the Monthly / Annual Rate for the relevant balance.

Allocation of Payments If you do not repay the entire balance on your account we will apply the amount you pay to the outstanding balance starting with those items to which the highest rate applies. For further details please refer to your credit card terms and conditions.
