24 Months Credit Card

24 Months Credit Card

The UK ‘s first 24 months credit card was introduced as a special offer by Barclaycard back in 2011. This first 24 months card was only available as a limited time offer.

This 24 months credit card had what was at the time, the longest ever UK balance transfer offer, a 0% for 24 months introductory promotional rate on balance transfers.

The 24 months credit card was briefly available again in January 2012 for the peak balance transfer period in the new year as many customer looked to balance transfer their Christmas spending.

24 Months Credit Card

Many of the other credit card companies then followed Barclaycard and also introduced 24 months credit cards with long balance transfer offers. These 24 months credit card promotional offers were increased on many of these cards over the years.

0% for up to 43 months was available in 2018 on a few credit cards, however many card companies have now greatly reduced their longest  balance transfer offers.

All of the following featured credit cards are now available:-
