Expert review

If you have existing card debt and you’re looking to reduce the amount of interest it attracts, a balance transfer deal could be a smart solution.

Yorkshire Bank’s B card offers an introductory 12 months’ 0% on balances that you transfer to your new card. It might not be the longest 0% deal on the market, but crucially, the interest rate that your transferred balance reverts to at the end of the 0% period is unusually low. It’s advisable to aim to clear your outstanding balance before the 0% period ends, but if there’s a chance you might not manage to, the revert rate is less punishing than many on the market.

There’s an introductory 0% deal on purchases too, so if you need to use the card for any major upcoming purchases, you can spread the cost without incurring interest (at least for the first 26 months).

Approval for any credit card will depend on your status. The APR shown represents the interest rate offered to most successful applicants. Depending on your personal circumstances the APR you're offered may be higher, or you may not be offered credit at all. Fees and rates are subject to change without notice. It's always wise to check the terms of any deal before you borrow.

Repayment options

When it comes to repayments, you can make manual repayments online or over the phone (0800 678 3320), or alternatively set up a direct debit. A direct debit is a great idea because it protects you from forgetting to make a repayment and either damaging your credit score, getting hit with a penalty fee or losing any promotional rates as a result. You can arrange a direct debit for repayments when you apply for the credit card. The table below shows the options available.

Choose from the following direct debit options for your monthly repayments:

Minimum amount Fixed amount Fixed percentage Full amount
