Looking for low-interest credit cards? A credit card that has a high interest rate can quickly lead to higher debt if you’re not careful. But, with a few savvy tips, you can lower your interest rate or transfer to a card with lower interest.
Here’s how to get the best interest rate for your credit card.
Open a New Credit Card with a Low-Interest Rate or Open a Balance Transfer Credit Card
If an older credit card has a high interest rate, open a card with a lower interest rate. Then, stop using the old card. If your old card has a long credit history that’s in good standing, keeping it open might be a good idea. If the bank is charging a high annual fee, then consider closing it. Or, you can open a balance transfer card with a lower interest rate and transfer your old balance.
Benefits with opening a new credit card:
The bank may have a low interest rate offer for new cardholders.
The bank may waive the annual fee for the first year.
The bank may offer special card back rewards for new cardholders…
