Barclaycard Launches Barclaycard Platinum Purchase
Released on: July 07, 2010, 5:28 am
Barclaycard has announced the launch of Barclaycard Platinum
Purchase, the all in one solution for balance transfers and purchases.
Under the new scheme, Barclaycard customers can take advantage of twelve months
interest free on credit card balance transfers, for a fee of just
2.9%. In addition to this, they will enjoy twelve months interest free on purchases,
making the card a solution for customers who want to pay off an existing balance
without being penalised by high charges on purchases.
At the end of the twelve month period, interest will be charged at 16.9% APR.
Barclaycard Platinum 0 Purchase credit cards are a good option for those wishing to make frequent purchases on their card such
as petrol, food and travel. By offering this interest free period on both balance
transfers and purchases, Barclaycard enables customers to effectively plan
repayments and day to day spending over the twelve months.
Cardholders will also enjoy a range of associated benefits delivered by Barclaycard:
from Barclaycard Freedom, the broadest rewards scheme in the UK, to revolutionary
online account management with mybarclaycard and the exclusive music world of Barclaycard Unwind.
Barclaycard Freedom allows customers to earn and redeem reward money in pounds and pence in thousands of
retailers across the UK without the need to carry additional cards or vouchers.
Customers will also enjoy the flexibility of contactless technology: payments of £15
and under can be made by simply holding the card over the contactless reader, backed
up by Barclaycard’s advanced security and fraud prevention measures.
mybarclaycard is the next generation of online card and banking services, offering
customers new ways to interpret and manage their spending. Flexible and intuitive,
mybarclaycard enables customers to personalise their pages, and offers visual
representations of spend to make card management easier.

access to gig tickets as well as private sessions with top UK artists, competitions
and up to the minute music news. As part of Barclaycard Unwind, Barclaycard is the
title sponsor of the Mercury Music Prize and the Wireless festival, and has recently
announced a partnership with Wembley Arena, which is now to be known as 'Wembley
