Our review of Nationwide | Select Credit Card
The Nationwide Select Credit Card offers customers 0% interest for a year on both balance transfers (made within the first three months) and purchases. There is also no fee for balance transfers for the first three months of the account being opened, after that it increases to 2.4%. This is still lower than the industry average which is about 3%. Customers of the Nationwide Select Credit Card can also benefit from 0.5% cashback on anything they spend in the UK and there is no limit to how much they can earn in any given period.
Although Nationwide do specify that Select Credit Card applicants already hold one of their accounts, it’s not too much of a problem if you don’t as you can apply for a current account at the same time as making your credit card application. If accepted you’ll also be able to keep on track with your balance and any payments with their online banking, as well as using your Nationwide Select Credit Card to connect to your Apple or Android Pay.
The Nationwide Select Credit Card has achieved a decent OPTIOSCORE, particularly in terms of its simplicity and consumer sentiment. A search of the web to find out other customers’ experiences has thrown up no reviews specific to the card, however on TrustPilot Nationwide as a whole has received a rating of ‘bad’. Although there are positive reviews, the negative ones tend to centre around inconvenient processes, poor organisation and less than perfect customer service.
Overall verdict: The Nationwide Select Credit Card is worth exploring if you want a simple process with a competitive representative APR. You can also earn cashback on your purchases and the 0% on balance transfers and purchases for a year could be helpful if you’re trying to clear some smaller scattered store or credit cards.
