Customers may want to make a credit card comparison following news that Saga is offering a new product for those wanting to pay by plastic.

The Saga Platinum credit card comes with a typical low rate of 15.9 per cent APR as well as zero per cent on balance transfers for six months.

Chief executive of Saga Group Andrew Goodsell said the new credit card will provide consumers the confidence they are seeking in the current climate.

"Consumers need reassurance this year and we are proud to offer a credit card which gives people the confidence that their payments will be managed fairly," he remarked.

Recent research by Egg revealed that over half of the predicted £12 billion of goods that will be purchased online this Christmas will be paid for with credit cards as customers seek to insure their possessions.
