    Credit cards that frequently offers transfer deals

    Credit cards that frequently offers transfer deals 10th Feb 18 at 5:06 PM
    I have several credit cards, including Tesco, Halifax, etc. The Tesco credit card is very good in that it frequently offers Money Transfer and Balance Transfer deals (about once every couple of months), even if I have not asked for these deals.

    However, the Tesco credit card is the only card that I know which offers money transfer and balance transfer deals, even after the opening of the card. Does anyone know of any other credit cards, which also frequently offers money transfer and/or balance transfer deals even after the card opening deal has been used?

    If anyone could share any relevant experience, it will be much appreciated!

    My experience is slightly different MBNA none but Barclaycard and HSBC regularly every month and decent fees and length. Have big limits on MBNA but no deals.

    Most of the time to get fee free ones you need to apply for new cards.

    Barclaycard are pretty good.

    I get offers for Balance transfers about every 2 months and about every 6 months for Money Transfers.

    Have had Halifax cards for many years and do get the odd good offer
    now and again but not at the moment...they want me to go
    for a 4%+ BT transfer !!!

    Will wait a few more months to see if a better rate is offered
    Will have to be about 1.5% for a BT, which I had last year
    and now cleared.

    I've been getting balance transfer offers from Barclaycard regularly every month for the last few years.

    Thank everyone for replying. Has anyone got any experience with Virgin credit card? Like MBNA, Virgin seems to give high credit limits, and it would be good if they offer money / balance transfer deals from time to time.

    I still have a fairly high balance on one Virgin card and I'm using the other as a 0% spending card, but I've had an occasional offer. Not as good as I get on MBNA or Barclaycard. Most recent offer was beginning of January. Targeting Christmas spending.

    I get regular offers from Virgin, every one to two months. Barclaycard every month, occasional one from Post Office, and have just started getting the odd one from Halifax.

    I get regular transfer offers from Virgin, but their transfer fee is quite high. This is the offer I got from them last month:



    I already have 0% on purchases for the next eighteen months with them.

    Barclaycard seems quite good for balance and money transfer offers. They write to me at least once a month with offers, usually with a 0.99% or 1.99% transfer fee.
