Changes to the Sainsbury's Finance Mastercard credit card have sent it soaring towards the top of the charts.

The standard purchase rate has been reduced and 0% introductory purchase deal extended for online applications, making it one of the market leading introductory deals around.

The purchase rate has dropped to 1.24% per month, 15.9% APR, while the introductory 0% purchase deal has been extended from the first three months to ten.

Already offering a deal on balance transfers of 0% for ten months, the changes make the card perfect if you're looking to make both purchases and balance transfers over the ten month term, as the order of repayments will have no detrimental effect on any savings.

Its all round performance earns the product four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
