For Tougher Financial Times – The MBNA Platinum Visa Credit Card

Making savings in tougher times can be difficult, as you need to find non-essentials and get rid of them.

But this is a common situation faced by many of us across the UK and one that we must tackle full on if our budgets are going to remain intact. When searching for monthly cost savings, one area seldom looked at is the best credit card deals that may be available and finding better ones to replace them.

You could be forgiven for not thinking about credit cards as a way to save money, especially because of the lack of competition in the market over the last two years. However, one lender has always provided its customers with impressive promotions and products and that lender is MBNA. Now, Europe’s largest credit card lender is offering the MBNA Platinum Visa Credit Card complete with three strong offers:
- 0% on balance transfers for a whopping 18 months
- 0% on money transfers for 18 months
- 0% on purchases for 3 months
To find a 0% deal is hard enough right now but three, all on one card? That’s a market leading product and one that could help individuals, couples and families across the UK reduce their monthly outgoings. As well as this, it provides a solid platform on which to manage finances and get some financial breathing space.
To benefit from the promotional rates, card-holders must transfer a balance or some money within the first 60 days of the account opening. For the balance transfer, there is a 2.88% handling and for the money transfer, you’ll pay a 4% handling fee.

This being a product from MBNA, you can be sure there are also a raft of extras and features included designed to give you benefits around protection and security, ease of use and personal preferences.

The MBNA Platinum Visa Credit Card comes with the following built in for all card-holders:
- Secure online account management
- Paperless statements
- Fraud Protection; and
- Contactless payments of up to £15
With the prices of petrol, gas, electric and VAT all rising, it’s reassuring to know that MBNA are making sure you can get a credit card that works hard to keep costs down. If you’d like to apply for the Platinum Visa Credit Card from MBNA, you can do so at its website: where you’ll also find information about the product and other services from MBNA.
