I am new to credit cards, was wondering why would you transfer balance of your credit card..I have had my card with Capital for about a year, with an APR of 25.49%. Could/should I transfer?

By: CompareCards | Aug 14, 2017

Balance transfers are useful if you have an outstanding balance on a card with a very high interest rate, and you want to pay off the balance without paying interest. Opening a new credit card with an intro 0% APR on balance transfers can help you pay off your debt interest free - check out some of our best balance transfer cards here. Depending on the size of your balance and your creditworthiness, this could be a great option for you.

By: Turtle Schultz | Aug 15, 2017

I would say yes with that high interest you are paying. Don't ever pay that high of interest on a credit card that are way too many credit cards out there to get with much lower interest rates.

By: Dottie Cales Caudill | Aug 17, 2017

You will most likely have to pay a fee to transfer but in the long run you will save money by doing the transfer.

By: April Heather Cunningham | Aug 19, 2017

Joyce that is a very high APR .... you should be able to find a lower APR on the transfer .... watch for how the APR changes when the 12 mths ends or if they offer 24 mths.

By: Marcia Clary | Aug 23, 2017

Hi Joyce, It would be to your benefit to transfer the balance on your Capital One card. You will save ton of money with a 0% card by not paying that high interest rate. Something to definitely look into.

By: Emily Knight | Aug 25, 2017

Look at your balance and the interest you have been paying. If you are paying more during the same time period (lets say 21 month period) that the 0% interest is offering then it makes sense to transfer.

By: Dash Dash | Aug 26, 2017

Yes, transfer balances that way you pay no interest for so many months, good idea

By: Turtle Schultz | Sep 1, 2017

Definitely, do the transfer. Why pay them almost 26% interest when you can transfer the balance you have to a card to where you pay NO interest for over a year or more. Do you know how much money that would save you???

By: WeedMee Weedmee | Sep 16, 2017

yes, take advantage of being able to save money by transferring your debt to another credit card that can offer a much lower interest rate. However do not close the other credit card as it may lower your credit score, it is okay to leave it open with a 0 balance as long as you want.

By: Renee I. Guerrero-Adams | Sep 25, 2017

Yes, you get to save on interest at least a year 25% is way to high!

By: Tamara Dean | Oct 4, 2017

joyce hi, ...yes please please transfer your balance, that is the highest apr. I have ever seen. get a card with 0 interest for 21 months if you can. that way you can pay your card down without that high rate for at least 21 months

By: Donnie Gibson | Oct 9, 2017

chase credit card is the way to go

By: Sue King | Oct 14, 2017

Yes, yes. Yes!!! Most offer rates of 14% when the 0% time expires.

As long as your purchases don't exceed your credit limit, you will be able to use the card. Try to pay off the balance as quickly as possible though in order to avoid paying fees or interest.

By: Mary Ellen Wolf | Aug 17, 2017

Hi Judy - I've used by credit card to charge for dental work all the time. It's a great way to pay.

can you have too many credit cards? I have excellant credit, but don't use credit cards very often. Should I destroy cards I no longer use or are expired?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Aug 9, 2017

By rule, there is no optimal number of credit cards to have - each person's circumstances are slightly different. If you are paying an annual fee for a credit card that you rarely use, it may be a good idea to cancel the card, or call the issuer and ask them to waive the fee. However, when canceling a card, keep in mind the change in credit score that may occur. Recent or new credit cards will have very little effect on your score if they are canceled, but older credit card accounts will temporarily lower your credit score when they're canceled. You can throw away expired cards, but make sure to cut the cards in half, just in case.

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Aug 9, 2017

Yes! As long as the total amount of the balance transfers and possible balance transfer fees does not exceed the limit of the credit card to which you are transferring your balances, then you can transfer from as many credit cards as you like. However, be sure to check each of your cards and know the balance transfer fees that may or may not apply. Check out our best balance transfer offer cards to see the best offers on the market.

0% Credit Cards & Interest Free Credit Cards

Low interest rate (or 0%) credit cards can save you hundreds of dollars on balance transfers and on routine purchases carried over as credit card balances. Or you may simply want to be rewarded with a preferential interest rate as acknowledgement for good credit history and responsible debt management. Whatever your goals or motivation, zero percent or low interest credit cards can help you maintain the lowest rates available to individuals with excellent to good credit. You can find out more about credit score here.

Keep in mind that there are two main categories of low rate credit cards, namely those that offer a Variable APR and those that give you a Fixed APR.  Just like with variable versus fixed rate mortgages, a fixed rate APR will remain relatively stable through the course of the loan. If your card company decides to raise it – which is somewhat rare – they will first notify you of that change according to Federal law requirements. With a variable rate, your APR is tied to a prevailing rate such as the Prime Interest Rate. If the prime rate increases then your APR will most likely follow in a similar fashion.

Generally speaking, credit card companies and banks will extend either 6 or 21 month offers – within the 0% to 3.99% annual interest rate range. That can generate a considerable discount when normal APRs are averaging around 15% or higher. Once the introductory promotional period expires, the APR on a low interest credit card or interest free credit card may revert to the regular interest rate. Of course the ideal balance is a credit card that offers a great near term rate followed by an attractive, competitively priced low interest rate for the long term.

The interest rate charged on your credit card is widely regarded as the single most important component of your card. That’s because it determines the major cost for you to borrow or roll over balances and pay them off over time instead of all at once or within the same month that you make purchases. That’s why getting a zero percent or low interest credit card can be huge financial boon, no matter what your credit card usage patterns or money management strategies may be.
