All major credit card companies allow you to transfer a balance from another issuer’s credit card but not one of their own. Some issuers also allow you transfer other types of debt, such as a balance from an auto loan, student loan, payday loan, mortgage, etc.
You can check out WalletHub’s Balance Transfer Study to see each major issuer’s policies. But we’ll highlight Chase here because it offer the best balance transfer credit card on the market, in Slate.
Chase – Credit card debt only

No matter what type of balance you transfer, make sure to use a balance transfer calculator to plan your payments and confirm you’re getting the best deal.
