Barclaycard has stormed to the top of the balance transfer table after extending its 0% credit card to 16 months.

Barclaycard now offers a market leading balance transfer term with a 2.9% fee, and the product also offers 0% for three months on purchases.

Where potential applicants are only looking to transfer their debt, there is only one other card in the market with a similar deal but applicants may be swayed by the Barclaycard Freedom Rewards scheme if they decide to spend on the card.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
