Shopping for Summer with Barclaycard

If you’re starting to think about the summer holidays, booking a break somewhere hot and buying yourself a sunny wardrobe to match, then you may be in need of some financial advice to ensure you can spread the cost of those wedges without worrying. Barclaycard’s top deals are now even better and for a limited time only a huge range of new offers will be made available to customers; from those applying for their first credit card, to those eager to save money on summer spending or existing balances. Here are some of the benefits they’re offering for applications before the 31st May.

  • Market leading 22 month 0% BT offer is now even stronger with the introduction of a brand new £30 discount on the transfer fee (for transfers over £2,500)
  • New 15 / 15 deal – 0% interest on both purchases and balance transfers for 15 months, an extra month improvement from the current 14 / 14 offer.
  • The low BT fee card (fee of 1.6%) is extended to 17 months duration, increased from 16 months
  • A completely new, 0% interest on all purchases for the first three months with Barclaycard Initial, a product designed for those customers who are new to credit

David Chan, chief executive of Barclaycard Consumer Europe said: “We’re very excited to be offering even better value and such a huge amount of choice to new customers; from those wanting to manage their money better, to those who are seeking to build a credit history.”

One of the highlights is 15 months 0% interest on purchases and balance transfers. For new customers eager to save on summer spending and on existing balances, the Barclaycard Platinum Purchase card now comes with 0% interest on both purchases and balance transfers for 15 months. The card has a variable APR of 18.9% and balance transfers incur a fee of 2.9%. This means that you can splurge on that bikini and pay it off when your next pay packet comes through, rather than settling for the one from Primark.

NB – I am in no way encouraging people to sign up for Barclaycard and suggest you think carefully/seek financial advice before doing so. I’m simply communicating the new benefits available to those who may be interested in Barclaycard’s services!
