– In this video, we discuss our top picks for the best 0% balance transfer credit card offers for 2016. If you have collected balances on some credit cards along the way and could use a breather from high-interest rates, this video is for you. Learn about some cards that can give you a break from your current interest rates to 0% for up to 21 months. Transferring your balances to one of these cards can give you the pause time from interest charges to help pay down your debt faster.
One of our favorite tips is to determine how many months we should target for our 0% interest break. Take your total balance and divide it by the number of months at the promotional rate. For example, $6,000 for 12 months. You could pay that off in 12 months with monthly payments of $500. If you determine you need a smaller monthly bill, look for a card offering 15, 18 or 21 months. If it is not doable on current offers, find the longest time period you can qualify for and pay on it the best you can during that time. With that in consideration, you will also want to look at the non-promotional rate, as that is the rate you will pay after the promo time period.
