    This FAQ page was I see updated a mere 1 day ago:

    Notice 0% interest per annum (variable) in bold. What has that to do with the real price of eggs if there is no nominal APR example shown of the APR equivalent of the cost of borrowing say £100 on Personal Reserve for just one day, or indeed for just accidentally dipping into your Personal Reserve by £15 for just one day?

    If your balance goes into your Reserve you’ll have to pay the Reserve Usage Fee.

    plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose ...
