The only 0% APR cash advance credit cards are from Justice Federal Credit Union. Its cards have a six-month 0% introductory APR on cash advances. After that, the APR is 11.9% to 18%, depending on the card and your creditworthiness. But even though these cards have 0% APR cash advances, there is a cash advance fee of 2% of the transaction or $10, whichever is greater. The maximum cash advance fee is $50.
The drawback, as is the case with most credit unions, is that you’ll have to meet specific membership requirements to be eligible. Justice FCU limits membership to employees (including retirees and family members) of the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Courts system and a number of law enforcement agencies and associations.

All major credit card issuers will charge interest and fees on a cash advance transaction. You’ll pay an interest rate usually higher than the card’s regular APR. That interest accrues immediately after you withdraw the cash, and there is no grace period. In addition, your credit card will charge you a cash advance fee of 3% to 5% of the amount withdrawn. You may also be charged a fee by the ATM or bank from which the transaction was made. 0% APR cash advance credit card offers are the exception, not the norm.
