TSB Extends popular fee free balance transfer credit card offer

Extended: 0% balance transfer fee refund offer for new customers 
0% interest on balance transfers for 28 months, 0% interest on purchases for three months
Plus: 1% cashback on the first £500 of eligible spend each month for Classic Plus customers

TSB’s 0% balance transfer fee refund offer for new customers taking out a Platinum 28 Month Balance Transfer Credit Card has been extended.

The challenger bank’s offer helps people make more of their money by refunding the 0.5% balance transfer fee on transfers made within 30 days of opening.

The offer was previously available to customers opening their credit card before 31 January 2018.  Now, TSB has extended the deadline so that new customers have until 28 February 2018 to take out their credit card. 

Rewarding switchers and spenders 

Customers taking out this credit card will also benefit from 0% interest on balance transfers for 28 months and 0% interest on purchases for three months.

Rewarding switchers and spenders, people can use the card in a way that best suits their needs.  The offer will provide customers with additional flexibility to help them manage their finances.

Classic Plus customers can earn 1% cashback

Customers can earn 1% cashback on the first £500 of eligible spend each month when they have a TSB Classic Plus current account.  This offer is available until 30 June 2018.

Andy Piggott, Head of Credit Cards at TSB, says:  “We’re bringing more competition to the UK banking market by extending our popular fee free balance transfer offer.

“You can never review your finances too often.  With no balance transfer fee, an interest-free period of 28 months on balance transfers and three months for purchases, our credit card offer is perfect for people looking to save money on their borrowing.”
