    Quick question.. what is paid off first on barclay credit card? 13th Jul 17 at 11:59 PM
    I'm just wondering if someone could clarify if I am right!?

    We ve had to buy an emergency works van and the savings pot wasn't quite up to it...
    We have about 500 ish on my husbands credit card but an offer of 0% money transfer into bank account. If we did this, when I repay the card each month, what will be repaid first? Would it be the 500 that has interest on the cash transfer?

    Many thanks in advance
    MAY: Tesco CC 830....0% til Oct 2018.LBCC 1500..0% til oct 2018. Total: 2330

    Any payments made to credit cards go towards the highest rate of interest portion of the debt to the lowest. So you could have 500 from a 0% balance transfer not being touched for the period of 0% if you have higher interest spends on the card running along side that are never fully cleared
