Tesco just charged me £66 interest with a minimum payment of £66 on my £0 card balance. Their oh so unhelpful phone staff tell me for sure you have hidden things in your nasty 200 page terms and conditions allowing them to perform such highway robbery. Not a single member of my family will ever ever touch another tesco banded product.

Use my credit card to live off and pay the balance every month. Receive Clubcard vouchers every 1/4 which get converted to Pizza Express vouchers. Saving ourselves a small fortune in eating out!

Stress-free Credit Card

Easy to set up the credit card, quickly let you know if they accept you, generous credit limit, do not hassle me or send me loads of post, easy to make payments, long period of interest free credit, easy to complete balance transfer from previous credit card. Only downside is the app is a bit clunky and could be more user-friendly.

Earn Rewards on the everyday

Do you need a credit card and want it to earn for your spends too? Then get a Tesco clubcard credit card. I always pay my bill in full each month so love to have a credit card that earns me a reward on my spends that is relevant to my everyday life. I can spend these rewards in store on food, or online or with other linked brands. It's a great reward that accumulates and is a lovely bonus at Christmas should you save them up but they can be used all year. Fair credit limits and online statements so paperless. No issues.

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 36 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.
