Save On A Credit Card – Transfer Your Balance

Saving cash on your credit card is not something that is usually at the top of your agenda, as most of us trudge from day to day with our credit cards and do not give it a second thought when we make a purchase. This may be a good thing as you could be comfortable with your spending levels and have no worries about meeting your monthly statement. Your credit card is not giving you any problems, as to make you think about your financial position. Though, to go to the other extreme, if you do not give your credit card a second thought, but feel that because you can at least pay the minimum payment each month, thinking that you are paying your debt, then you should start thinking about where your credit card is taking you. No matter which of the two positions that you find yourself in, the fact of the matter is that we should all be trying to save our hard earned for ourselves and not to be handing over more than we should. With interest rates being as low as they have ever been and the credit card lenders who have either a 0% balance transfer facility, a 0% purchases facility or both on the one credit card, then the tools are in place for you save cash.

Even if you feel that the APR on these types of offers, revert to one that is higher than the one that you have currently, then looking for a credit card that has a better fixed APR than the one that you have now, cant be such a bad idea can it? If you are unsure about how a balance transfer works, it is quite simple really and all it involves is finding the best 0% credit card deal that suits you and once you have been accepted for the card, you then move your existing balance from your old card to the new one, that’s it. If you have a new credit card issuer who is offering a longer term 0% deal, then the more money there is to be saved on interest payments. There is one word of warning, if you have a new credit card that is only giving you 0% on a balance transfer, then spending on this card will only mean that the interest will add up on any new purchases that you make. As payments that you make will be put towards paying off the balance transfer debt first. So if you wish to continue spending, your best bet would be to get a new card that will give you 0% on purchases as well as balance transfers, if not then it would be a good idea not to close the account of your previous credit card, so that when you spend you know that when you make a payment to this card the money is going to paying back the new purchases.

So while this is going on you will not be spending on the new credit card, but you will be safe in the knowledge that you are saving the interest payments on the old debt.
