Consumers often wonder which type of credit card is the best. Is it the card with the low interest rate for the life of the card? Is it the no interest credit card? Is it a store card or a gas card or one you can use anywhere you want? Is it a card with a large line of credit or one with a small line of credit? There are so many hundreds of credit cards available to consumers and so many different needs that it’s impossible to say which card is the best credit card for every single household. What’s good for me might not be what you consider a good card. There is no such thing as a perfect card; but there is such thing as a number of good cards. No interest cards, specifically, are good credit cards to have, and for good reason. These cards are going to offer more benefits than not, so read on to find out why you might want a no interest credit card of your own.
When you’re not paying interest, you are saving money. That’s the simple answer. Whether you have no interest for a year or for 6 months, the lack of interest saves you money and makes your life a bit easier.
When you have a credit card with no interest, you typically have a card that also offers no interest on balance transfers for a period. This means you can save significantly on cards with higher interest rates and you have time to pay them off before you do have to start paying interest.
Be Careful, Though
With most no interest credit cards, there is often a catch. These cards are great for a period, but often come with a higher interest rate once the interest-free period is over. Make sure you pay off all balances before this occurs or you could end up in trouble.
