Tesco Bank is today introducing the lowest balance transfer fee currently available to customers looking for a 0% interest rate. The balance transfer fee on the 12 months 0% interest purchase and balance transfer card will reduce from 0.85% to 0.65%.
Furthermore, for customers looking for a longer term balance transfer, Tesco Bank is offering another option with a 0% balance transfer offer for 30 months.
Both credit card options will continue to reward customers with Clubcard points on their spending - customers receive one point for every £4 spent on their card*. Cardholders will gain extra points wherever they use the card, plus standard Clubcard points when shopping at Tesco.
David McCreadie, Managing Director, Banking at Tesco Bank, commented: "At Tesco Bank we are committed to offering great value products that reward loyalty. Today's changes demonstrate this commitment as we continue to provide a choice of highly competitive credit card offers to meet the needs of Tesco customers."
Customers can apply for Tesco Bank credit cards online at TescoBank.com, by calling our applications team on 0845 300 4278 or by picking up a leaflet at a local Tesco store.
