How to Find the Best Balance Transfer
One of the best ways to save money on interest payments is to use a credit card balance transfer. As the name suggests, a balance transfer is simply the transfer of debt from one card to another. The benefit comes from transferring that debt to a card with a low interest rate.
When evaluating balance transfer offers pay attention to the following:
- Introductory rate: What interest rate you will pay on the balance transferred for a period of time. This is also often called the “teaser rate.”
- Introductory period: Next, find out how long you will receive the introductory rate. The longer the into period, the better. You will have more time to pay down your debt at the low rate.
- Balance transfer fees: Banks often charge a fee for initiating a balance transfer. This is generally a percentage of the total amount you transfer, usually 3%. Add up the fee to see if it is worth paying. Most of the time the interest savings will outweigh the fee.
- Regular rate: Find out what your regular rate, or “go-to” rate will be after the intro period ends. This is a good way to plan your debt reduction strategy and prepare for what’s next.
