Approval for any credit card will depend on your status. The representative APRs shown represent 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.

The Miss Selfridge Mastercard can be used for spending both at Miss Selfridge and elsewhere – which means you can be collecting reward points when you’re filling up at the petrol station or doing your groceries, for example. As you might expect though, you’ll earn more points per pound when you shop with Arcadia brands.
There are a few crucial points to be aware of, however:
First off, if you carry a balance on this card from month to month (rather than clearing your balance in full), then what you pay in interest is likely to outweigh any rewards you’ll earn. If you do clear your balance in full every month, you should be able to avoid paying interest altogether.
Secondly, if you get approved for this card, the interest rate you’re offered may differ from the advertised representative APR – which card issuers are only obliged to award to 51% of their customers. New Day (the company that issues the card) will assess each applicant’s financial circumstances and credit history and offer a personalised credit limit and potentially a personalised rate too.
Finally, as part of the Arcadia group, Miss Selfridge very nearly vanished from high streets in June 2019, and its future remains far from assured. As such you may be reluctant to stockpile reward points.
But provided you’re aware of – and OK with – these factors, then used carefully, this card does offer appealing rewards to regular Arcadia group customers. What’s more, you can even bag some extra points just by signing up for “e-servicing” or setting up a direct debit for repayments – which points-or-no-points is a smart move – protecting you from late fees and damage to your credit score.
Pros and cons
- Applicants with low credit scores may be eligible
- Earn points on day-to-day spending
- Up to 1,000 points introductory bonus
- No annual fee
- Relatively high balance transfer fee

The Arcadia Group? What’s that?
Arcadia Group Ltd. is a British retailing company which owns a number of UK high-street staples (listed below). With over 2,500 stores and employing more than 20,000 staff, it’s often hit the headlines – for both good and bad reasons. As well as Burton, the group includes:
- Dorothy Perkins
- Miss Selfridge
You can make manual repayments through NewDay Ltd's app, by logging in to your online banking or over the phone (0334 984 0263). Alternatively, you may wish to set up a direct debit.
A direct debit protects you from forgetting to make a repayment and either damaging your credit score, getting hit with a penalty fee (£12) 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|
How to apply
Sorry – NewDay Ltd is no longer accepting applications for this card. However you may wish to consider one of the alternatives listed above.
