BoS card supports real ale

As the Great British Beer Festival gets underway at London Olympia, Bank of Scotland is offering real ale drinkers the opportunity to support the Campaign for Real Ale all year round, simply by using their CAMRA Platinum MasterCard.

Bank of Scotland makes a payment of £2.50 to CAMRA when a cardholder uses their card for the first time, in addition to 25p for every £100 spent on the card. The card offers an interest rate of 1.9% APR on balance transfers for the first five months and a standard rate of 14.9%.

The CAMRA credit card offers customers free travel accident insurance along with preferential rates and discounts on selected holidays, car hire and hotels.

Royalty payments made to CAMRA through the credit card assist with its ongoing campaign to protect the rights of beer drinkers and support the production and availability of real ales throughout the UK.

The Great British Beer Festival takes place between August 6-10 and offers real ale fans the chance to sample more than 400 real ales.

The festival features live entertainment every day and tutored tastings of British and international beers are available throughout the event.
