UK credit card holders spent just under £20 billion in May – a 33% jump in the total spend compared with the same month last year. You can take action today to reduce the cost of your credit card debt by shifting it to a balance transfer card so you pay 0% interest while you pay it off. Here are some of the best deals we’ve found, all links go to Go Compare’s eligibility checker:
If you get a 0% interest balance transfer card, always pay off the minimum amount each month and don’t spend on it. Aim to clear it before the 0% period ends, as interest payments will shoot up after. If accepted, the actual 0% period you get can depend on your circumstances, while fees mentioned are a percentage of the amount transferred.
