Sainsbury's Bank has reduced the introductory fee on its leading 0% balance transfer credit card by a whopping 1.15%, which has improved its position in the Best Buy chart for its sector and earned it our highest rating.

The basics…

The Sainsbury's Bank 42 Month Long Balance Transfer Credit Card MasterCard now boasts an introductory balance transfer fee of 2.35% (min. £3) to complement its long interest-free term of 42 months. It also has an introductory 0% purchase term of three months from the date of issue.

The finer details…

After the introductory periods have ended, balance transfers will be charged at an annual rate of 18.95%, while standard purchases will be charged at 18.9% APR.

As a bonus for loyal Sainsbury's shoppers, this card comes with 5,000 Nectar points for new customers who spend £250 on Sainsbury's shopping or fuel in the first 40 days (valid until 26.3.17), and another 3,000 bonus points if the card is taken out before the end of January and a balance of at least £1,000 is transferred in before then. Customers will also earn two Nectar points per £1 spent on Sainsbury's shopping or fuel and one point for every £5 spent elsewhere, whereby they should remember there is only a three-month interest-free term on using the card to make purchases.

Borrowers must be at least 18 years old and should remember that rates are representative and dependent on credit ratings.

Why we like it…

The reduced introductory fee makes this card even more appealing, especially to those borrowers looking to earn some Nector points. As a result, it has obtained a more competitive place in the Best Buys as well as deserving the highest Moneyfacts rating.

Moneyfacts rating: Outstanding
