Tesco Bank launches new 0% period on balance transfers
3 September 2012
Today, Tesco Bank has introduced a new 0%, 22 month period, for balance transfers on the market-leading Tesco Clubcard Credit Card. This outstanding new balance transfer period is available with a highly competitive fee of 2.9% and gives customers the additional value of 0% interest on purchases for six months.
As a thank you for their loyalty, Tesco Bank gives Clubcard Credit Card customers Clubcard points on all of their spending - receiving one point for every £4 spent on their card. The Clubcard Credit Card also doubles as a Clubcard in Tesco stores allowing customers to earn five points for every £4 spent, making it the perfect way to spend and earn additional points.*
David McCreadie, Managing Director of Banking at Tesco Bank, commented,
“Tesco Bank aims to offer customers great value financial products and excellent customer service. The Clubcard Credit Card has consistently topped purchase offer best-buy tables and our new balance transfer further enhances this product for Tesco customers.
“We are committed to serving our customers fairly over the long-term. As a ‘thank-you’ we reward our customers’ loyalty through Clubcard and last year customers exchanged over £100 million worth of Clubcard points from their credit cards. This makes the Clubcard Credit Card unique in terms of both value and reward.”
