Low Interest Credit Cards Are Not Hard To Find

Apr 24, 2008
Financial institutions are increasingly offering low interest credit cards to entice people to transfer their credit card balances (and hopefully their banking business) to them. This is a highly successful marketing strategy that you can take full advantage of. The only difficulty you are likely to face is the amount of time required to wade through the incredible number of these offers available.

Researching low interest credit cards to find the best offers for your needs is no easy task. An internet search will certainly locate hundreds, if not thousands, of these special card offers, however you will need to be very savvy to negotiate the fine print and sort the truly beneficial offers from the rest of the pack.

There are all sorts of categories of low interest credit cards to choose from, including special accounts for students, business people and those who have had a poor credit record in the past, as well as rewards cards which will give you free access to all sorts of utilities and services from free gas to air miles. You just have to decide which type is more convenient for you at the time of application, and then choosing the one with the most competitive rates or a combination of competitive rates and the most attractive offers.

An online one-stop service that does the initial culling of the less competitive credit card offers can take this stress off you, save you a lot of valuable time and potentially save you money as well. Most of these websites also offer online applications but those that offer an alert service to notify clients when their low (or zero) interest introductory periods are due to expire, are pure gold. If you are given enough warning that you will soon be paying normal interest rates, you will have time to choose another low (or zero) interest credit card with a decent introductory period. By doing this, you remain in charge of your finances and a huge amount of your money will not be siphoned off to financial institutions in interest payments.

The most beneficial low interest credit cards are those with the longest introductory periods (most range between three to fifteen months), the lowest interest rates (preferably zero) and the lowest fees for transferring your balance (this can be a flat fee or a percentage of the balance). You also need to be aware of the penalties for making a monthly payment late and choose an option that is the least painful.

Constantly transferring your credit card balances to low interest credit cards in order to avoid high (or any) interest payments may be an unusual financial strategy, but it is a highly effective one. Hundreds of dollars every month could be bleeding out of your income through credit card interest payments. By stopping this financial blood letting you can quickly regain control of your finances and even begin to get out of debt. With the right information and support the process can surprisingly quick and easy.
