Nationwide BS is offering an early summer transfer offer that should attract savvy money managers.

The building society has changed the length of its 0% balance transfer period from 13 months to 15 months for both its Classic and Gold Visa cards.

This deal for debt transfers falls just one month short of the 0% balance transfer league leaders, and is likely to prove popular.

Although the Classic Visa has a higher purchase rate of 19.9%, the Gold Visa is a decent mid-market option at 16.9%.

In addition, the cards offer an introductory purchase deal, albeit a short one at just three months. Due to the positive order of payments, any spending on the card would not negate the benefit of transferring a balance.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
