0aprIf you are paying interest on a credit card balance, your first concern should be paying down that debt. Ignore which card earns the most points or airline miles when you are paying crazy 15%+ interest! If you are ready to pay down that debt, consider transferring your balance to another issuer. Below are the best 0% APR balance transfer offers as of May 2019.

You’ll want the best combination of the longest 0% APR period and the lowest balance transfer fees. For example, if you are paying 20% APR, that’s like paying 1.66% on your balance every month. If you would like to spread out your payments, it may be better to pick a longer term with a modest balance transfer fee. Alternatively, if you are sure you can get it all paid off faster, go for a shorter offer with no balance transfer fee.

  1. Your Alliant link is broken; it goes to Barclaycard.

  2. Andrews FCU just sent me an offer I’ve never seen before: 5.99% APR* Life of the Balance Transfer. And, no balance transfer fees or annual fees. Seems pretty good, but I haven’t checked the details for any catch…

    • I just got that e-mail from Andrews FCU as well. I’m not too excited about 6% APR, but I suppose if you have a big balance at 16% APR and you need to stretch it out over 2 or more years to pay it off, it could work out.

    • Jonathan says:

      Does anyone know the minimum payment for Andrews 5.99% lifetime bal transfer? If it is low enough, this might make sense in some instances. Thanks for any info!
