Our review of Barclaycard | Forward Card

The Barclaycard Forward card offers customers 0% interest on purchases for the first three months they own the card, and upon receiving an offer from Barclaycard they will let you know balance transfer fees and rates. 

It's a suitable product to opt for if you're a customer with limited credit history and looking for your first credit card. Making your agreed repayments each month will not only give customers more experience in managing money, but will gradually increase your credit score over time- providing you repay on time.
