    Thank you I was worried about posting in the wrong board.

    My question is I recently balance transferred from mbna (as the interest free period was up) to Lloyd’s to get a new interest free period. However I already had a balance from purchases on my Lloyd’s card, which is creating a lot of interest. mbna are offering another balance transfer interest free, Can I transfer an amount (purchases amount attracting interest) onto mbna and would that leave the interest free balance transfer amount on Lloyd’s. Will that work?
    If that makes sense.

    Yes. The highest rate debt will always be transferred.

    How much is the balance and how much is the interest rate?

    You should be able to do as you propose - Lloyds will allocate payments towards the portion of your balance attracting the highest interest rate (ie. your purchases) so you can transfer this away to your new 0% card. Make sure to account for any trailing interest!
