M&S Money, the financial services division of Marks & Spencer, has announced an exclusive offer on its credit cards for new customers.
The offer, which began at the start of September, provides new M&S Money credit card holders with 0% interest on all shopping for ten months from the account opening and 0% interest for six months on balance transfers (http://www6.marksandspencer.com/pages/default.asp?PageId=rwd&Product=CC ) made within six months of the account opening.
New M&S Money Credit Card (http://www6.marksandspencer.com/pages/default.asp?PageId=MI&Product=CC ) customers will also benefit from earning M&S points with every use of the card as well as well as no cash advance fee and 55 days interest free when buying M&S Travel Money with the card.
Brendan Cook, M&S Money Chief Executive said, "This new card means that M&S are now one of the few providers in the market to be offering excellent 0% deals on both purchases and balance transfers. This card not only has a competitive APR but also benefits from the M&S Loyalty Scheme, making it one of the most attractive credit cards in the market.
"Additionally, whilst a number of other providers have recently been raising their interest rates and shortening their 0% offers, we're delighted to be bucking this trend - at a time when consumers will appreciate this the most."
The credit card (http://www6.marksandspencer.com/pages/default.asp?PageId=rwd&Product=CC ) offer from M&S Money also allows customers to conveniently manage their account online, with additional security from Spend Safe fraud protection. M&S Money has also guaranteed savings of 8% on holidays with the exclusive travel club.
