Nationwide has launched a new credit card that should appeal to consumers looking for a good all rounder.

The Nationwide Credit Card Visa offers a 0% rate for 17 months on introductory balance transfers and 3 months 0% on purchases, or 0% on purchases for 6 months if the balance transfer offer is not taken up.

A balance transfer fee of 2.95% (minimum £5.00) is payable on all balances transferred. It also offers 0% on foreign usage until 31 July 2011, then reverting to 2%.

This product launch brings to the market one of the longest balance transfer offers available as well as a lower than average standard purchase rate of 15.9% APR, low foreign usage charges and a reasonable deal on introductory purchases.

Foreign usage charges can be discounted due to a unique sterling spending incentive: for every £5 spent on sterling purchases, £1 can be spent on non-sterling currency purchases commission free, and for a limited period there will be no charge for spending abroad.
