Infographic: How to Make a 0% Interest Credit Card Balance Transfer

Credit card debt is often a product of the high interest fees consumers are stuck paying on their existing balance. Wouldn't it be great if you could just rid yourself of the additional 10, 20 or 30% in interest and start paying down your debt directly?

(The answer is: 'Obviously')

For consumers with fair-to-excellent credit, the solution is simple - transfer your balance to a new credit card with 0 percent interest applied to balance transfers.

The transaction will help you pay down your debt quicker, interest-free for up to 18 months. Plus, you'll save a small fortune on interest fees AND improve your credit score by adding to your available credit line. Pretty good deal, right?

Use the infographic below for step-by-step instructions on how to make a 0% interest credit card balance transfer.
