Tesco Bank Clubcard Credit Card introduces new marketing leading purchase card
1 July 2013
Tesco Bank has improved its Clubcard Credit Card range by introducing a new market leading 0% for 18 months purchase card, and a new highly competitive 0% for 27 months balance transfer card.
Customers can currently choose between three Tesco Bank Clubcard Credit Card options that all combine great value with the reward of Clubcard points.
Tesco Bank Clubcard Credit Card*:
|Clubcard Credit Card||0% interest on purchases period||0% interest on Balance Transfers (BT) period||BT Fee|
|Purchases option||18 months||9 months||2.9%|
|Balance transfer option||3 months||27 months||3.15%|
|Low BT fee option||12 months||12 months||0.9%|
As a thank you, Clubcard Credit Card customers receive Clubcard points on all 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, Banking at Tesco Bank, commented,
"We aim to offer Tesco customers a choice of consistently competitive credit card options. Our new leading purchase offer reflects this ambition by providing good value, and by rewarding our customers’ loyalty with the ‘thank-you’ of Clubcard points."
