Expert review

As a “credit builder”, this card is designed for customers with a less than perfect credit record, or simply not much in the way of credit history. But unusually for a credit builder, the ASDA Money Cashback Start Credit Card Mastercard comes with rewards. You’ll be able to earn cashback wherever you use the card, and you’ll earn at higher rate when you use it at Asda.

With no annual fee and a manageable, low credit limit, provided any balance is cleared in full each month, this card would be a smart idea for those with limited or less than perfect credit histories.

Just bear in mind that although this card is billed as a “cashback” credit card, the rewards are paid as vouchers to be redeemed at Asda.

Approval for any credit card will depend on your status. The APR shown represents the interest rate offered to most successful applicants. Depending on your personal circumstances the APR you're offered may be higher, or you may not be offered credit at all. Fees and rates are subject to change without notice. It's always wise to check the terms of any deal before you borrow.

Repayment options

When it comes to repayments, you can make manual repayments online or over the phone (0371 704 3369), or alternatively set up a direct debit. A direct debit is a great idea because it protects you from forgetting to make a repayment and either damaging your credit score, getting hit with a penalty fee or losing any promotional rates as a result. You can arrange a direct debit for repayments when you apply for the credit card. The table below shows the options available.

Choose from the following direct debit options for your monthly repayments:

Minimum amount Fixed amount Fixed percentage Full amount
