Barclaycard has provided a shot in the arm of the credit card market by launching a product with the longest ever 0% balance transfer period.

The Barclaycard Platinum with Balance Transfer Visa charges introductory balances transfers at 0% interest for 18 months (previously 17 months).

This card now offers the longest 0% deal on the market for balance transfers in conjunction with a low balance transfer fee of 2.9%, minimum £7.25.

In addition, for those wishing to consolidate their debt, Barclaycard continues to offer an incentive by giving the customer a £20 refund against the balance transfer fee if they transfer £3,000 or more by 28 February 2011.
