Before applying for a balance transfer credit card, make sure to plan your payments using a credit card payoff calculator. Your goal should be to bring your balance to $0 by the end of your card’s 0% introductory period.
Finally, it’s important to note that while many store credit cards offer 0% financing and require only fair credit for approval, they all use a dangerous feature called deferred interest and should thus be avoided.
