Barclaycard has increased the period on which it charges 0% on balance transfers on its Platinum with Purchase Visa.

Previously charged at 0% for 10 months, clients will now enjoy a year paying no interest on balance transfers.

Whilst a 12 month term for balance transfers is not market leading, it is still a relatively generous term considering the card also offers a matching deal for introductory purchases.

This makes it an attractive card for those who want to be able to transfer debt and also use the card for purchases.

Once the introductory deals are over, the card does revert to the standard rate, but this is roughly in line with the market average.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
