The amount of the credit limit – from 300 EUR up to 200% of your monthly net income.

Interest-free credit card (100%)

You may use the interest-free credit limit free of charge for up to 45 days – if you pay back the used credit limit amount by the 15th day of the next month, no interest will be charged, and the full credit limit will be available again.
