What to look for in a 0% balance transfer credit card
When searching for a 0% balance transfer credit card you should look at the length of the 0% period and the size of the balance transfer fee.
Some cards don’t charge a balance transfer fee but others charge as much as 4% for each balance transfer you request, so if you’ve got multiple cards you want to clear, the costs can add up.
