As you probably know, interest rates are at an all time low right now, and if you are not getting the best deal from your credit card company then they owe it to you to reduce your rate, or you owe it to yourself to find a better deal. You see, the credit card companies need your business to succeed and if they refuse to pay a penny more than you then you are doing yourself and the others did a great favor. By doing this you avoid paying more than they should and the companies will stop treating its clients inappropriately. Now that this is clear, let's talk about the essentials of balance transfers, how they work and how you can ensure that you get the absolute best deal possible. First, understand what a balance transfer is. A balance transfer is when you transfer the balance from one card to another in order to obtain a better interest rate than is currently receiving.
Secondly, to find the best offers complete, look to transfer balances on cards where the initial interest rate is 0% and the amount after that is less than it does today. For example, if you hold a card that has an interest rate of 27.4% on a balance of 1000 and only paid 150 pounds a month for six months, you will not pay the balance in 6 months. Instead you will pay 247 worth of interest and the balance after 6 months is 346.
