AA has hit the road to credit card success by extending the length of its 0% introductory purchase deal.

Introductory purchases on AA Credit Card Visa and AA Members Credit Card Visa are now charged at 0% for 12 months, two months longer than previously.

This means the credit cards are just one month shy of making it to the top of the 0% introductory purchase chart.

It should be noted that 0% balance transfers now only last for a period of nine months (down from 12 months), while the standard rate of purchase has also increased.

However, if you're happy to clear the balance before the introductory deal comes to an end, these deals are well worth a look.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are richly deserved.
