Tesco Bank has improved the terms of its already popular credit card.

The Clubcard Credit Card MasterCard now offers clients 0% on purchases for 13 months and 0% on balance transfers for 9 months.

While the new term on balance transfers is not market leading, it is relatively generous, especially considering that the card now offers the longest 0% deal on introductory purchases.

The card's standard rate is around the market average, but it does offer a Clubcard reward scheme that may prove attractive, especially when combined with the purchase deal.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.

Card Tip: If you do not make your monthly minimum repayment you risk losing the introductory 0% offer. Pay your credit card statement on time by direct debit.
