We have had a Tesco MasterCard for years. They have provided flawless service especially when there have been fraudulent issues with cards. However the points system is not as good as it once was

I have had a tesco credit card for 14 years. I have spent over £740,000 on that card. I was 6 days late paying and have been charges £70 interest and £12 late payment fee. They are venal, smug and immoral, and from now On I will never, ever transact with tesco again

The Clubcard Credit Card is a great way of spending money whilst accumulating additional clubcard points, either in Tesco or other stores. In no time you can convert your points into offers worth 3 or 4 times the value of the points.

Easy enough to apply but took ages on the phone. Friendly enough but not the most flexible card you could have regarding balance transfers and money transfer. Look around before deciding this one.

Our review of

As you’d expect, the main benefit of the Tesco Low APR Credit Card is indeed the competitive rate of APR. At time of writing this is one of the cheapest on Choose Wisely and is the lowest rate that Tesco offer on any of their cards. As well as the cheap interest rate customers also receive 0% interest on purchases and balance transfers for the first month of the account opening, and the balance transfer fee is also set at 0% for that time as well. You’ll be able to transfer up to 95% of your credit limit, but this can’t be from another credit card from Tesco Bank.

If you’re a frequent Tesco customer then you might enjoy this card for the Clubcard points that you can accrue. For every £4 spent in store you can receive 1 point, and even if you shop elsewhere you can still earn them at a rate of 1 point per £8 spend. These points can then be exchanged for nights out, restaurant vouchers or money off your shopping. This is a nice little added benefit that most of their competitors can’t offer.

The OPTIOSCORE for the Tesco Low APR Credit Card is average across all the categories, with nothing standing out as particularly positive. Unfortunately, there are no reviews online that are specific to the Low APR Credit Card, but for their cards overall Tesco Bank have been given a rating of ‘poor’ by TrustPilot. Although there are customers who are happy with their experience, there does seem to be an issue with customers having to jump through hoops at the application stage and still getting declined.

Overall verdict: If you are an avid collector of Tesco Clubcard points and have a good credit history then the Low APR Credit Card is an affordable option that’s worth considering. Not practical if you want to do balance transfers as you’ll still have to pay interest.
