0aprInterest rates are rising, which applies to credit card APRs as well. Why worry about which card earns the most points or airline miles when you are paying a whopping 20%+ interest in your balances?! One powerful strategy to get out of debt is to first transfer your balance to another issuer via a 0% APR balance transfer offer. Below are the best 0% APR balance transfer offers as of January 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.
