Luma's latest credit card allows customers up to 3 months interest free on their purchases, something rarely seen on credit building cards. With credit limits up to £1,500, customers can be accepted if they are new to credit, have some previous bad credit history or CCJs, so the card could be beneficial to someone that is looking for a short term loan to repay in a few month's time, as it'll be on an interest free basis. With the interest rates at 35.94% once the initial 3 months is over this could be an expensive way of borrowing, so we always recommend trying to pay balances back in full each month wherever possible. Additional cardholders can be added and you can manage the account online or with the app.
