The balance transfer card from Sygma Bank UK has had its 0% balance transfer period increased from 15 months to 17 months.

The Creation Credit Card MasterCard has also had its balance transfer fee reduced to 2.90%, minimum £3.00 (previously 2.98%, min £3.00).

Although Sygma Bank UK has increased the introductory balance transfer term by two months and reduced the balance transfer fee, this still falls a few months short in comparison to other cards available elsewhere.

Applicants will have to meet the minimum income requirement of £20K whereas if consumers shop around, they may find alternative deals with less of a restriction.
