If you’re a Cashplus business customer and have received an invitation for its business credit card, you may be wondering how it scores against the competition.
This is a solid, straightforward business credit card that will do the job just fine, although without giving you any extra perks or rewards. If your business relies heavily on invoices and you need some flexibility to better manage your monthly budget, it may be a good choice.
The rate on purchases is less than competitive, so you really want to avoid carring a balance from month to month. Provided that you don’t, you’ll enjoy up to 56 days of 0% interest on your purchases each billing cycle, which is longer than the average.
In the world of business credit cards, the lack of annual fee is quite uncommon and means that if you use this card responsibly you can get monthly credit completely for free, which somewhat makes up for the lack of juicy perks.
As this card is on the Mastercard network it’s accepted in more than 40 million locations worldwide. You’ll also be able to enjoy access to Priceless Cities experiences.
How does this deal compare with other business cards?
When it comes to repayments, you can make manual repayments online or over the phone (0330 024 0924), 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|
