Savvy Festive Shoppers Seeking out the Best Credit Card Deals on comparethemarket.com

LONDON, December 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

With Christmas just weeks away, savvy shoppers looking to make their money go further this festive season are seeking out the best credit cards deals on comparethemarket.com, one of the UK's leading price comparison websites.

If you haven't managed to put by enough money for Christmas, or you don't want to dip into your savings, you could spread the costs with a 0% on purchases credit card.  The most competitive cards give you more than a year of interest-free credit, giving you plenty of time to pay off your balance.  

But a word of warning: don't forget to pay the minimum repayment every month or you'll risk losing the 0% promotional rate. And try your best to pay off the card balance in full before the introductory period disappears or the far higher typical APR will kick in. If you don't think you'll manage that, make a note in the diary that you'll need to transfer the remaining balance to a 0% balance transfer card at that point.

The table below shows comparethemarket.com's current tops deals for 0% on purchases credit cards:

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
