    I am quite new to the VA card. Twice they have charged me an ‘interest’. I have full direct debit set up so I don’t understand why that is being charged. I don’t use it for cash back. Could someone shed some light please?

    Or gambling? Or purchasing cash at a bureau de change? Or buying crypto?
    Any of these will not have an interest free period.
    If unsure you can just ask – I am sure they will tell you. They might even be kind and waive interest charges.

    Thanks will contact them. Bizarrely, not doing anything suspicious. A few transactions to do with beauty, food, flights etc

    Have they actually charged you or is it just an advisory on the statement of the interest you will incur should your payment be late?
