This is financial adviser Patrick Munro talking about, "How does zero percent work on a credit card?" Credit card companies are mindful that they need to appeal to the consumers with the very lowest rate possible. Well, you can't get a rate lower than zero. But it is for a limited time and credit card companies know that consumers get comfortable with one particular credit card and then they will stay usually beyond a period of time and then they'll be in a profit situation beyond that. So take advantage of your zero percent credit card offers but if you come to the end of the cycle and the zero percent of course expires with one credit card company over on the other hand you may receive another offer that does have a fresh schedule of time available for zero percent. In which case you use what's called a balance transfer and you move you move your account from one account over to the new zero percent situation. That's all available if you have good credit so make sure that you keep your credit card balances low and you keep your credit card education high and you keep your credit in a great situation. This is Patrick Munro talking about zero percent on credit cards.
