The British Heart Foundation Credit Card, powered by MBNA for more than 11 years, now offers eligible new customers zero percent interest on balance transfers and money transfers for up to 24 months from the account opening date* - up from 12 months previously.

The offer applies to transfers made within the first 90 days (a 2.99 percent handling fee applies to balance transfers and a 4.00 percent fee applies to money transfers), and the card also offers zero percent interest on purchases made in the first three months of account opening.

The new British Heart Foundation Credit Card from MBNA is available for consumers to apply for now at https://www.bhf.org.uk/get-involved/donate/other-ways-to-donate/bhf-credit-card.aspx.

When British Heart Foundation Credit Card customers open an account and use their card within the first 90 days - at no cost to them - MBNA will pay the British Heart Foundation up to £50, plus 35p for every £100 spent by customers on card purchases.

"We are delighted to have been the power behind the British Heart Foundation Credit Card for more than 11 years, and to enable customers to continue to raise important funds for such a vital charity", said Michael Donald, Marketing and Commercial executive for MBNA.
