Interest Free Credit Cards

Interest free credit cards, also known as 0% cards, don't charge the cardholder for their spending for a fixed period of time. Though the cardholder will have to make repayments, interest free credit cards allow periods of time before adding any interest to repayments, some of which are quite extensive and last for as long as 27 months. Interest free cards are particularly popular amongst those who need to make expensive purchases.

    What are the Benefits of Interest Free Cards?

    Interest free credit card deals offer people a great way to reduce the interest they pay to credit card issuers, and if you haven't switched issuer for a while there's a good chance you'll be paying more interest than you need to. Remember that the best interest free credit cards come with various different features, so it is essential that you compare cards impartially to make sure you get the best interest free deal for you.

    What are interest free credit cards?

    Interest free cards come in three main formats:

    • Balance transfer cards; offering an interest free period on balances transferred from another issuer. The length of balance transfer period and transfer fee differs between issuers, and you can't transfer balances to your current issuer (so check beyond the brand name to understand who you really have your credit card with).
    • 0% purchase credit cards offer people the chance to purchase items and defer the commencement of interest payments for a set period of time. Interest free purchase cards can be a great way of reducing the interest you might pay on big ticket items (to zero if you can pay back what you have borrowed before the end of the interest free period).
    • A relatively new arrival in the credit card market is the combined, or dual-hook credit card, with equal length balance transfer and purchase offers. Typically these cards have a shorter balance transfer or 0% purchase length than you might expect from a specialist product of either type, but they offer simplicity in knowing when your 0% purchase period ends and the higher interest rates start. Currently the best of these cards only lose a month or two when compared with specialist 0% purchase credit cards, and to many they are a very attractive alternative.

    How do I get an interest free credit card?

    Given the complexity of the products in the interest free credit card market, it is essential you compare credit cards to get the best deal for you. One of the quickest and easiest ways to do this is by using credit card comparison tables (like the ones above) which rank products by the strength of specific features (eg. longest interest free balance transfer), together with secure links to the specific product on the issuer's website where you can apply (and in many instances get instant approval).

    Be sure you have done your research before you apply for a credit card, because almost every credit application in the UK is recorded by a credit reference agency, and someone deemed to have too many applications can be seen by lenders as a sign of financial difficulty, making it more difficult to secure credit in the future. If you are already in financial difficulty, that does not necessarily mean you can't access interest free credit cards, but it is unlikely you will be offered the great credit card deals available to 'prime' customers, and you might be better placed applying for a bad credit credit card, some of which regularly offer interest free balance transfer periods or 0% purchase periods.
