Virgin Money’s Manchester United club heroes credit cards

Virgin Money is offering Manchester United fans the chance to vote for their favourite of a selection of four new credit card designs, featuring some of the club’s top heroes.

The four-strong line-up of designs were created by illustrator, and Red Devils fan, Stanley Chow.

They include England’s 1966 World Cup legend Sir Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson – who played for Manchester United more than 450 times – and legendary striking duo Dwight Yorke and Andrew Cole.

Fans can also vote for a card depicting, Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best and Denis Law, who led the club to their first European Cup victory in 1968.

Club heroes: Virgin Money wants fans to cast their votes to decide the winning design 

Anyone can vote for their favourite here and the design that receives the most votes before November 24 will be turned into a limited edition credit card. 

New credit card customers will be able to pick the design when they sign up, and existing customers can ask for one if they want one, according to Virgin Money. 

These will be available during the January transfer window, which runs from Monday 1 to 31 January. 

Virgin Money is the official retail financial services partner of the team in the UK, and already offers fans several savings accounts, including its Double Champions E-Isa.

The account promises a boosted rate of 3.2 per cent if Jose Mourinho’s team go on to win both the Premier League and the Emirates FA Cup this season. If they don’t it pays a lower 1.2 per cent.

Virgin Money also offers its full range of credit cards – which includes some of the most competitive balance transfer and money transfer promotions on the market – with the European Cup winner’s crest on.

Cardholders who opt for a Manchester United credit card will also be signed up to the United Rewards scheme that comes with prizes, including free matchday tickets, signed shirts and hospitality tickets.

The new designs could prove a hit with fans wanting to flash their team colors every time they open their wallet, but they should avoid picking any of its cards simply for the design.

Are the footie credit cards any good? 

Virgin Money has a huge range of cards on offer, all of which will have the option to choose the winning Stanley Chow design on. 

Its offers, of course, will change by the time January rolls around but some of the top picks from the credit card provider currently include a 38-month interest-free balance transfer credit card with a 1.5 per cent handling fee.

This sits just one-month short of the top deal from Santander’s All in One credit card, which has no transfer fee for the first three months of the card account being open. However a monthly card fee of £3 applies, although it is refunded for six months for customers with other qualifying 123 accounts.

Virgin’s top deal for those after a 0 per cent interest deal on spending is the All Round Credit Card at 27 months. This is fairly competitive, but there are a handful of cards on the market offering longer to repay the cost of a large purchase free from interest. 

 Sainsbury’s Bank currently takes the top spot with a 31-month offer. The card also currently offers 1,000 Nectar points for every £35 spend in stores within the first two months, up to a maximum 10,000 points. 

Two Post Office cards, a Halifax, Santander, and second Sainsbury’s Bank offer and the AA all offer longer 0 per cent promotions on purchases.
