Low Introductory Rate Credit Cards

Excellent for Balance Transfer

The folowing credit cards offer low introductory interest rate as low as 0%:

Shopping for the best credit card value can be complicated. Different issuers charge different interest rates. They also use different methods to calculate finance charges. The APR measures the cost of credit as a yearly interest rate. APRs on credit cards can vary from five to 25 percent. If you're like most people and carry a balance on your credit card at least sometimes, the APR can make a big difference. These low introductory rate credit cards are excellent for balance transfers.

List of Low Introductory Rate Credit Cards

 

Quite a few credit card issuers offer attractive introductory rates as low as zero percent. If you carry a balance on your credit card, such offers are veryi advantageous. However, be aware that these low rates generally apply for a limited time only. As soon as the introductory period ends, the rate will increase to the card's regular rate.

Before applying for a specific credit card, it is important that you understand the terms and conditions of the introductory offer. Ask the credit card issuer:

  • what transactions the introductory rate offer applies to;
  • when the introductory period will end;
  • what the interest rate will be at the end of the introductory period;
  • if the introductory rate will end if you make a late payment or exceed the credit card limit;
  • if any other fees or conditions apply.

Your strategy with low introductory rate offers

First, find out which transactions the offer applies to. If the low introductory rate applies only to balance transfers and/or cash advances (and not to purchases), limit your new purchases until you pay off the balance transfer or cash advance to save money in the long run.

When low introductory rate applies only to balance transfers, if you make purchases while carrying a balance, you may reduce the potential savings from the low introductory rate on your balance transfer or cash advance. That's because you lose the interest-free period on new purchases and your payments will be first applied to the lower-interest balance.

Don't base your credit card decision solely on one factor such as an attractive introductory rate. Make sure you understand all of the features and conditions of a card to decide whether it is right for you.
