Virgin Money has relaunched its market-leading credit card offering customers 40 months interest free on balance and money transfers, with a reduced balance transfer fee of 2.59%. The new card is available until April 1st.

The new card offers:

  • 40 months 0% interest on balance transfers, with a one-off transfer fee of 2.59%
  • 40 months 0% interest on money transfers, with a one-off transfer fee of 4.00%
  • 3 months 0% interest on purchases

The balance transfer fee on Virgin Money’s 30 month credit card has been reduced, meaning the card now offers:

  • 30 months 0% interest on balance transfers, with a one-off transfer fee of 0.59%
  • 30 months 0% interest on money transfers, with a one-off transfer fee of 4.00%
  • 3 months 0% interest on purchases

All introductory rates apply to balance and money transfers made within the first 60 days of account opening.

John Natalizia, Director of Credit Card Products at Virgin Money, said: "Our 40 month credit card has proven a big hit with customers previously. While the card is available until April 1st, this is a serious opportunity for customers to help manage their money."

New Online Credit Card Calculator
Virgin Money has also launched a new credit card calculator to help customers select the Virgin Money credit card that best meets their needs. Customers select the size of balance or amount of money they intend to transfer and their planned monthly repayment. The calculator then orders Virgin Money’s credit card range by overall cost, promotional period or length of time to repay the balance. Customers can try out different scenarios and see the impact of alternative payment plans, and the calculator also shows the monthly payment that will enable customers to clear their balance within the promotional period, avoiding any interest payments. The calculator is available at virginmoney.com/cards

.

John Natalizia added: "Our new calculator makes it simple and straightforward for everyone applying for a Virgin Money credit card to pick the option that best meets their needs. In doing so, they can see the impact of different monthly repayments, and also how they can clear their balance within the promotional period, avoiding any interest."

Unlike most credit card providers in the UK, Virgin Money ensures that all successful applicants receive the promotional rate and duration they apply for. Virgin Money does not offer shorter balance transfer periods or higher interest rates to customers after reviewing their application.

All Virgin Money credit card customers have access to Virgin Money Lounges together with a range of exclusive offers from the Virgin Group, including discounts on a range of Virgin products such as holidays and train tickets.
