The Best Balance Transfer Card

Using credit cards to earn lots of miles and points is usually only worthwhile if you can pay off your balances in full every month.  Carrying big balances on your cards is generally not a good idea because you’ll pay more in interest than the miles and points you earn are worth.

But sometimes unexpected expenses, job loss, or illness can cause financial strain, and folks have no choice but to carry a balance on their cards.  So what should you do if you find yourself in this situation?

There’s a great option for folks who have balances on their credit cards and want to save money on interest.  The Chase Slate card lets you transfer balances from other credit cards, has a 0% APR (annual percentage rate) for the 1st 15 months, and does NOT charge a fee for balance transfers in the 1st 60 days of having the card!

You Can Transfer Balances to the Chase Slate Card and Pay NO Fees or Interest for the 1st 15 Months
