Tesco Bank has increased the interest-free balance transfer period on one of its balance transfer credit cards to a joint market-leading 37 months, earning it the top accolade as a result.

The basics…

Clubcard Credit Card for Balance Transfer MasterCard now has a 0% interest balance transfer period of 37 months with a fee of 2.90%, enabling it to sit near the top of the Moneyfacts charts.

The finer details…

As well as an interest-free balance transfer term this card also offers a three-month 0% period for purchases. Borrowers will earn 5 Clubcard points for every £4 spent in a Tesco store or on Tesco fuel, and 1 point for every £4 spent elsewhere. Money transfers are also possible and carry an annual charge of 18.941% with a 3.00% fee.

Once the initial offers expire, balance transfers will be charged at 20.626% per annum, while purchases will carry a rate of 18.9% APR.

Borrowers must be at least 18 years old and have a minimum annual income of £5,000. They should also remember that rates are representative and dependent on their credit rating.

Why we like it…

The increase to the interest-free balance transfer term has made this deal into an eye-catching option. The added bonus of a three-month 0% interest term for purchases is also highly appealing, as is the opportunity to earn Clubcard points on spending. This is an outstanding product that fully deserves the highest Moneyfacts rating.
