0% INTEREST CREDIT CARDS
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.
