Tesco Bank

Tesco Bank is today introducing the longest 0% interest credit card currently available to customers. The bank will offer 0% interest on new purchases for 19 months, meaning customers pay no interest on purchases until 2016. Customers that want to transfer a balance can get 0% on balance transfers for three months.

Tesco Bank Clubcard Credit Card offers:

  • 0% on purchases for 19 months
  • 0% on balance transfers for 3 months, with a balance transfer fee of 2.9%

Tesco Bank Clubcard Credit Card customers are rewarded with Clubcard points on their spending – receiving one point for every £4 spent on their card*. Cardholders collect points wherever they use their 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, simple 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.”
