How do I check which introductory offer I signed up for?


Once you've taken out a credit card, is there anyway in which to check how long an introductory offer on it lasts for?

The reason I ask is that I have a Tesco credit card, for which I'm positive was advertised with a longer 0% on purchases than I am getting now. I took it out about this time last year and am now getting hit with interest and I'm positive the introductory offer was for longer than the 12months I'm getting? Otherwise I'd never have taken the card out in the first place.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I intend to transfer my remaining balance to another card, but I'd really like to get to the bottom of this as well.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    It'll be on your key facts doc sent when you opened the account.
    The longest 0% BT deal was 15/16 months so a year is probably correct.

    I could have sworn the 13 months purchases deal is quite recent. If you look for "tesco 0% 13 months", it seems they made it news at end of this July, so it must have been 12 months before that...

    An additional catch is that they usually start the promotional deal at the time of the account opening, so when you can actually go shopping with the card in hand, you're about 1-3 weeks into the deal.
    Enjoy the silence...
