0% Interest Credit Cards 2019-09-12T09:24:15+00:00


What Is A 0% Interest Credit Card?

0% interest credit cards offer 0% interest on all purchases or existing credit card debt transfers for a certain period. This gives people the chance to pay off large purchases over a number of months without being charged interest. The difference with this and 0% purchase credit card is that you can transfer a previous credit cards balance to this one allowing you to pay off previous debt with 0% interest.

There will most likely be a high fee for withdrawing money as there is with the majority of credit cards, there could also be a fee for using your credit card abroad so make sure to check this with the supplier. Although there is 0% interest on the balance, there is a minimum payment that needs to be met each month otherwise the privileges could be revoked.


Credit cards that offer 0% interest for existing credit debt or on any purchases within a pre defined period.

Yes, having a good credit rating will help, if you have a poor credit rating you may still be accepted but with a higher interest rate at the end of the period and so it then becomes more important to make sure the full balance is paid off before the 0% interest period ends.
