HOW TO TACKLE CREDIT CARD DEBT

0% APR Plus No balance Transfer Fee Cards – What’s Left?

- Apr 26, 2020 Credit Card Info, Debit0 comments

As we have already discussed many times on the blog, balance transfers are a great way to save on interest in a case where you are stuck with a high credit card bill, or even if you just want some extra cash to purchase a home.

Last week we got some bad news. The Chase Slate credit card suddenly disappeared from the Chase website with no warning. The Chase Slate card was a great credit card allowing you to transfer balances with no fee. And then, the BankAmircard for students which also featured $0 balance transfer fee, disappeared as well. But let’s not cry over spilled milk. Let’s check out what is left.

Here are a two credit cards that are still available and don’t charge a balance transfer fee.

Avianca Vida

The Avianca Lifemile cards don’t have a zero balance transfer fee but they have a very minimal fee of max $10. So lets list them as well.

Avianca Vida

  • Intro 0% APR for 12 months on balance transfers – max $10 balance transfer fee
  • Welcome Bonus: Earn 20,000 miles after making the first purchase.
  • Annual fee: $59

What you need to know:

  • To receive the intro APR offer, transfers must be completed within the first 90 after account opening.
  • Beware: If you make a late payment then a penalty APR may apply and you may lose the Intro APR offer.

Avianca Vuela

Avianca Vuela

  • Intro 0% APR for 12 months on balance transfers – max $10 balance transfer fee
  • Welcome Offer: Earn 40,000 miles after making the first purchase.
  • Annual fee: $149

What you need to know:

  • To receive the intro APR offer, transfers must be completed within the first 90 after account opening.
  • Beware: If you make a late payment then a penalty APR may apply and you may lose the Intro APR offer.

What You Need to Know Before Making a Balance Transfer

Here is what you need to know before making a balance transfer.

Penalty APR

Penalty APR is the APR you will be paying if you make a late payment. Before making a balance transfer, make sure you are familiar with how much the penalty APR will be. If you will end up being late (it happens to the best of us), not only will you be losing the intro 0% APR offer, but you may end up paying more interest now than what you were paying before you made the balance transfer.

Grace Period

When you make a purchase on a credit card, (as long as you pay your balance in full every month,) you will not have to pay interest on new purchases until after the due date on your statement. When you make a balance transfer, you will not be paying the balance in full by the first month. Remember that you will lose your credit card grace period and end up paying interest on your new purchases from the date of the purchases. (I recommend not making any new purchases on this card rather use a different card and pay it in full every month.)

Minimum Payment

Before making a balance transfer you will want to make sure that you will be able to afford the minimum payment amount. Therefore, make sure you are familiar with how the minimum payment is calculated on your new credit card. (You can find a list here.)
