    Existing customer 0% offers 8th Oct 16 at 9:36 PM
    It seems that existing customer offers on 0% for a number of months only applies to balance transfers and/or money transfers. There's no 0% purchase offers for existing customers.

    Why are exsiting customer offers only concentrated on balance transfers and money transfers, and not 0% purchases?

    I get a mix of BT, MT and purchase offers from my cards.

    Perhaps you have the wrong cards?

    I also had one offer from barclaycard for 0% purchases but only for 6 months. They offered it when i called to discuss interest rates.

    I have had offers from Barclaycard regarding balance transfers, though they aren't actually 0% as you pay a transfer fee. If you look at most balance transfers have a fee. Most banks will promote their products to their customers.

    The offer states;

    Eligibility requirements:
    To be eligibile for a first direct credit card you must:

    hold a first direct 1st Account
    not have an existing credit card with first direct
    be a UK resident


    I suspect it is an offer they sent to everyone who has a FD bank account and no FD credit card, rather than an offer personal to me.

    As an existing customer I've had five 0% purchases offers from Creation, albeit they were all only for 6 months each.

    I've had 12 months 0% purchases offer from Barclaycard however this was offered over the phone and not via their usual methods of checking offers in online banking/email mailshots.
