Halifax is offering a new zero per cent balance credit card option for those looking to improve their financial situation in the new year.

According to research by the lender, 57 per cent of those Britons planning on making a new year's resolution are looking to review their finances in 2009.

And the bank has responded with the introduction of a new credit card, which gives customers the benefit of zero per cent for nine months on both balance transfers and purchases.

Head of Halifax Card Services Alan Brindley described the new All-In-One card as a "great offer" that could save consumers "significant amounts".

"The card is ideal for customer who would like to reduce the cost of their spending or even reduce the cost of outstanding debt," he explained.

Equifax recently predicted that the use of plastic cards as a means of payment is set to result in the decline of the cheque, with only businesses opting to make using this method in transactions.
