General

  • Just like any credit card, you can use it to buy things now, but pay for them later, spreading the cost over time if need be. Handy for making regular purchases or for unexpected costs, your Cashplus Credit Card is accepted online, in-store and over the phone.

    Your card comes with a credit limit which is subject to review from time to time. Just like a typical credit card, you can use it to spend on everyday needs, up to your credit limit.

  • If you’ve already received an offer from us via email or post, simply follow the prompts to apply online here. Remember to read and accept the Pre Contract Credit Information and Credit Agreement first.

    If you haven't received an offer from us, you can still apply here and we'll give you an instant online decision.

  • If we’ve invited you to apply for our credit card, we’ve pre-qualified you, which means we think you’ve got a good chance of being approved at that time. Because circumstance can change easily, we can’t guarantee you’ll be accepted, but we’ll do our absolute best to say yes. By completing the short application process, a card could be on its way to you very shortly.

  • Before you’re accepted for our credit card, we need to be sure that you can afford to make at least the minimum payment and ensure you know how you’ll pay the remaining balance. We recommend that you always try to pay more than the minimum amount, and try to clear the whole balance as early as possible, to keep interest and charges to a minimum. And please keep in mind, a credit card’s not suitable for long-term borrowing. If you’re looking to buy an expensive item, and repay over a longer period, a loan may be a better option.

  • This is the maximum amount of credit available via your new Cashplus Credit Card account.

  • Offers do vary so we’ll confirm the maximum amount in your offer and the exact amount during the sign up process based on the information provided. If you’ve already received your Cashplus Credit Card, please see your credit agreement or welcome email for confirmation of your credit limit.

However, you must also borrow responsibly and be honest with us about your income and outgoings. if your circumstances change, please contact us.

Fees & Charges

  • Offers do vary so please see your credit agreement or offer for pricing details. You can also contact Customer Services for help.

  • APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate. This is a standardised term used to calculate the annual rate of interest, taking into consideration one-off charges that a borrower will pay. Please see your Pre Contract Credit Information or Credit Agreement for your APR.

  • Grace periods will vary and only apply to purchase transactions, where no interest is charged on such transactions as long as the balance is repaid in full by the repayment date. So please see the details of your credit agreement for confirmation.

  • To work out the amount of any fees or interest you’ll need to pay, we divide the year into 12 monthly statement periods. That’s because the number of days in a calendar month changes (e.g. January has 31 days, February has 28-29 days), so the number of days in a monthly statement period varies. You’ll receive your Credit Card statement each month in Online Servicing. This will include the amount you need to pay and when the repayment is due.

  • Please see your offer for details, as offers do vary.

  • Yes, there’s an over limit fee of £12.
