Zero Percent Credit Rates

[May 06, 2008]

It is estimated that most cardholders are searching for 0% APR cards, or at least for cards with low interest rates. It would be awesomely great to carry the card that requires no interests to be paid. But do these cards really exist? Can you find the card with 0% APR? Yes, you can. Such credit deals do exist, but unfortunately they do not enable you to enjoy interest-free period for the life of your account. As the saying goes, good things come in small packages. And just like this, this interest-free period on your card will not last forever. The length of the promotional period is stipulated in accordance with your credit card agreement, and it varies from company to company. Though these deals look extremely tempting, cardholders should be very careful when choosing 0% interest card.
