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:
