Tesco Bank introduces market leading no balance transfer fee credit card offer
2 November 2015
Tesco Bank has today introduced a market leading no balance transfer fee credit card offer. The Bank now offers 0% interest on balance transfers for 21 months with no balance transfer fee or annual fee for use of the card. The offer means customers will pay no interest on balances transferred until mid-2017, and unlike other credit card providers, every accepted customer receives the 21-month interest-free period.
For customers looking for a longer 0% interest period, Tesco Bank has also increased its 0% interest balance transfer credit card offer to 37 months with a balance transfer fee of 2.9%, making it their longest balance transfer offer ever and one of most competitive deals available on the market. Again, unlike other credit card providers, every accepted customer receives the 37-month interest-free period.
Last month, Tesco Bank received the award for Best Balance Transfer Credit Card and was named Best Overall Credit Card Provider at the Personal Finance Awards 2015/2016, as voted for by consumers.
David McCreadie, Managing Director, Banking at Tesco Bank, said:
"We know customers are looking for great value banking products that are easy to use. These new offers are some of most competitive in the market and importantly our customers can have confidence that if we accept their application, they will receive the complete balance transfer term as advertised."
