Unfortunately as I am already a Barclaycard user I am not entitled to any of these great deals, although I did transfer to them along time ago as a balance transfer and have been totally happy with their service! If you have a large credit card bill then balance transfers are a fab way to save you money. Look into it if you haven't already :O)
