I am going through a divorce and my wife has wrecked my credit. I'm trying to get my finances back on track, but the interest is killing me. I only have fair credit. Is there a 0% APR card balance for 15-18 months that caters to fair credit?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Apr 11, 2016

Hi Corey,

With fair credit, your options will be pretty limited in terms of which balance transfer credit cards you can get approved for. One good option for fair credit is the Capital One QuicksilverOne. Once your credit score gets into the upper 600s, you should apply for the Chase Slate card which comes with 0% APR for 15 months.

Is there a reputable credit card I can apply for, transfer the balance from another credit card and earn travel miles? Everything that I found says it has to be a purchase. Surely there's a credit card company who does this. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Patricia,

There isn't a card that has 0% APR for 18 months as well as no balance transfer fee. However, two good offers that come close are the Chase Slate and the Citi Simplicity. The Chase Slate card has no fee for balance transfers made within the first 60 days and 0% APR for 15 months. The Citi Simplicity has the longest intro APR on the market with 0% for 21 months, but there is a 3% balance transfer fee. Neither card comes with an annual fee.

Try USAA Discover card. No interest no balance transfer fees

I have a Chase Visa card that I need to do a balance transfer with. What would be the best credit card to apply for? I know you can't do balance transfers on the same company card. A 0% apr for 18 months with no transfer fees would be optimum but will settle for less. Thanks.

Hi Robbin,

There isn't any card that meets the specific requirements you've requested, but the Citi Simplicity comes with 0% APR for 21 months, no annual fee, and a 3% balance transfer fee.

If I already have one Citibank card, can I apply for a different Citi Card and transfer my balance and still be eligible for the 0% for a certain amount of months?

2 Replies

By: CompareCards | Jan 18, 2016

Hi Kat,

Unfortunately, you cannot transfer balances between credit cards issued by the same bank. Since you're current card is with Citi, you won't be able to transfer the balance to another Citi card. I would recommend the Chase Slate card for a balance transfer credit card. It offers 0% APR for 15 months and no fee for transfers made within the first 60 days!

By: Stephan George | Jan 27, 2016

Normally, balance transfer offers aren't available within the same bank. You would need to go to another institution.

Probably not possible. I think use of a bank account shows them stability.

Are there any other cards besides Chase Slate that don't have a transaction fee for balance transfers?

Hi Robin,

The Chase Slate card is not the only credit card that has no balance transfer fee, but it is the only one that also has no annual fee and a lengthy 0% intro APR. For more details, check out our latest blog post about credit cards with no balance transfer fee!

I applied for a Citi Bank MasterCard and was approved . The balance I need to transfer is more than I was approved for can I cancel the card?

2 Replies

By: CompareCards | Jan 6, 2016

Hi Joanne,

You can certainly cancel the card if you choose. However, depending on your situation, it may be wise to leave it open. If the card you applied for has a 0% APR on balance transfers and you're currently paying a high interest rate, you could still save a lot of money by transferring a portion of that balance over to your new Citi card. Although it is not ideal, it would still help you avoid interest charges on part of your balance. You could consider applying for another offer with 0% APR, like the Chase Slate, to help pay off the rest of your balance.

By: Stephan George | Jan 27, 2016

My opinion? Call them and tell them the circumstances. They may increase the credit line if they know the reason you are opening the card is to transfer debt to them and not create it. Worth a try.

I have all of the cards. Should I close out my slate card which has a zero balance and then re-open it to transfer a balance on an Amex card over? How long do I have to have the slate closed before I can re-apply? And does closing that slate card affect my credit score? How do you do cash advances? Do you have to have a new card for cash advances as well?

1 Reply

By: Stephan George | Jan 27, 2016

first of all, I would never close a card. one of the factors that effect your credit rating is the ratio of used credit to open credit. second, I would call chase and ask them -- they don't want to see you go somewhere else. third, if you are considering chase, I would look at the Bank of America cards (one is a better balance card, which gives you a bonus payment of $25(?) every quarter if you always pay more than the limit. I am not sure if that applies if you have nothing due, but it's sure worth a try!

Picture of Jennifer Foote

Was looking for a good card to transfer balances to. I was looking a lot say 0% interest for a time but below it says 3% interest on balance transfers. So I'm a little confused.

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Jan 6, 2016

Hi Jennifer,

The 3% number that you are seeing is referring to the balance transfer fee, not the interest rate. For example, the Citi Simplicity offers 0% APR for 21 months, but it comes with a 3% balance transfer fee. This means that if you transfer $1,000 to this card, you will be changed a fee of $30, making your total balance $1,030. But since you will have 21 months to pay this balance down totally interest free, you will still save a lot of money as opposed to attempting to pay it down on a card with a high interest rate.

Compare 0% Balance Transfer Credit Cards & Offers

One of the main reasons that people shop for a new credit card is in order to find banks that offer special 0% balance transfer credit cards for the longest period of time and with low transfer fees. In recent years consumers have started to use credit cards more wisely than they did before the big credit crisis. Now they tend to shift high-interest card balances to cards that offer a lower APR, because in doing so they are able to gain immediate and substantial savings.

Use our free balance transfer calculator and credit card payoff calculator found on this site to figure out how much money you can save by getting a better interest rate. Then look in this section for the best balance transfer credit cards that offer good deals such as 0% interest for 1 to 2 years, no-fee balance transfers, and lower regular APR rates. You will want to pay special attention to any minimum charges or transfer % that a credit card company might impose on you for transferring a balance – deduct that cost from your overall savings in order to arrive at a real net savings for transferring to a new credit card.

Let’s say that you have a card that you’re currently paying 25% interest on, but you find a card here that will only charge you 3.99% for the first year and 18% thereafter. By moving your balance to the new card you can save more than 20% right away, and 7% over the long term. If your transfer amount is $3,000 that means you save around $500– $600 in interest within the next 12 months.
