Change Credit Card to 0% Interest

Credit cards can be the cheapest way to borrow money if done in the right way. At the moment you can get a 0% interest on certain credit cards for a term of up to 18 months.

In order to benefit from these new long term 0% interest credit card deals, there are certain clauses that have to be met. These clauses vary depending on which credit card provider you choose. The main two conditions that will be looked at are:

  • Credit Rating (Generally you won’t get anywhere with a bad credit rating)
  • Minimum Income (Some deals are based on monthly payments, some yearly)
  • There may also be additional conditions for certain cards which will require that you have a current account with the credit card provider.

Switch to a 0% credit cardIf you are planning on going ahead and getting a credit card, one of the key things you need to think about beforehand is, are you financially disciplined? Or can you be financially disciplined? If not, then it’s definitely not advisable, as you can run up some pretty substantial debts. Another thing you need to plan is your income for the period of time that the credit card lasts. Because there is a minimum amount you must deposit into the account each month or year, you need to plan ahead and ensure that you don’t suddenly find yourself without income then otherwise you could find yourself in a situation where debt just keeps piling on.
