Halifax 26/26 Credit Card - 26 months @ 0% On Balance Transfers & Purchases & £20 Quidco

Not for everyone, depends what your after. If you're like me, then it could be for you.

Are you actively using a credit card for purchases, into its limit, incurring interest? Then switch to this and save yourself some cash!

0% for 26 months on Balance Transfers and Purchases. There is a 2.95% fee for Balance Transfer.

Using my own situation as an example...

I was £895.20 into my £1500 limit Barclaycard. I was still actively using the card and paying about £20 a month in interest.

Switched to the Halifax 26/26 card and approved for another £1500 limit card.

I've transferred the balance, closed the Barclaycard and now actively using the Halifax Card instead which is £921.60 (895.20 + 26.40 bt fee) into its £1500 limit.

So, not much has changed, just using a different card. Major difference is now I am paying 0% interest for 26 months on the balance or ongoing purchases.

Paying roughly £20 a month interest and possibly more, this switch will likey save me at least £500.

If it's not all paid off after the 26 months, there's plenty of others out there to switch to and keep that 0% going!

Santander do a 27/27 card with slightly lower transfer fee. But factor in the Quidco £20 on this and, depending on how much you want to transfer, there's not much in it.

Yes that is a good deal, they don't allow BT from another Barclaycard, so that was ruled out for me.

I've got a still love M and s card that's also MasterCard will that interfere if I try and go for this to do a transfer from that to this?

Not a patch on Virgins Money Transfer then. 32 months 0%, and around 1.7% fee.

edit:

The above offer isn't around I don't think with Virgin. It's 1.99% instead.

Voted hot on the above, purely with regards to quidco potentially paying out.

the 32 month virgin money transfer card doesn't have the 0% on purchases, which is the main benefit of this card. if not gonna use for purchases, better off getting a Balance transfer card, some around for 40 odd months 0% I think

I recently received the one with same length of time but under 1% fee, no major difference unless it's going to be a few thousand you're going to transfer.

​was that for BT and Purchases?

0% deal isn't much good to me (I pay whole lot off every month)
But will get it for the £20 quidco...

I got 32 months transfer at 0.7% fee and purchases 12 months both at 0%. Got offer in the post and but better via tcb, both with £20 back direct from Halifax as well. On mse top cards. Approved immediately.

Dont pay it off every month, pay the minimum and put the difference in a savings account instead then at the end of the interest free period pay the card off and pocket whatever interest you have made

Got the same deal as Sid, only gave me about £200 for purchases after transfer, intention in the first place.

I normally pay off my balance every month , for me, my credit card is mainly for accumulating avios points
