Our review of Tesco | 0% Balance Transfer Credit Card

The Tesco 0% Balance Transfer Fee Credit Card has a representative APR that is the same as a number of credit cards on the market. Where Tesco differentiate themselves is with the 0% interest on balance transfers and money transfers for up to 28 months of opening the account. Customers can also earn Clubcard points when using their card, even if they aren’t spending in Tesco, which can be exchanged for goods, trips and treats.

As the name suggests, cardholders of the Tesco 0% Balance Transfer Fee Credit Card also don’t have to pay a fee on balance transfers for those completed in the first 90 days of opening the account. After this time a fee of 3% will be charged – this is a standard level among competitors. If you’re thinking of doing a balance transfer then please be aware that you can only transfer a maximum of 95% of your given credit limit and you can’t make transfers between Tesco Bank credit cards.

Looking at the web for online reviews shows there aren’t any specific to the card but we can look at Tesco Bank’s credit cards as a whole to judge the type of experience other customers have had. On TrustPilot, their cards have been judged as ‘poor’, citing long call wait times, application problems and cards getting blocked as the reasons.

Overall verdict: A standard representative APR, but if you shop at Tesco frequently and want to accrue Clubcard points then this could be an option, just watch out with balance transfers that you’ve paid your balance before the 36 months is over, otherwiseyou’ll  start incurring interest at inflated rates.
