Which balance transfer credit card should you apply for? That depends on your goal. If you need as long as possible to pay off your outstanding balances, then you'll want a card with the longest 0% APR financing available. Depending on your balance though, you might want to look for a card with no balance transfer fee. Perhaps you’re just looking for a card with a lower APR, or if you are close to paying off your debt, you might be able to take advantage of a large sign up bonus of a generous rewards credit card.
