Halifax: Credit card balance transfers on the up in 2009

The findings of a study, commissioned by Halifax and carried out GfK NOP in December, have indicated more people are deciding to organise their finances by transferring debts from more expensive products.

Halifax stated the figures also suggest British people are persisting with their new year's resolutions by getting their money in order.

Alan Brindley, head of card services, said the company was pleased by the study.

"Our own figures show an uplift in the number of people seeking to take advantage of balance transfer deals.

"We're delighted to see many people are organising their finances after the festive period."

Halifax added the average credit card user could save up to £151 by choosing a product such as its online All-in-One credit card.

It also offers a range of charity cards, which allow users to make a donation to Cancer Research UK or the NSPCC every time they make a purchase.
