Q: I’m considering a balance transfer to an interest-free card. Is that a good idea?
A: Transferring some or all of your credit card debt to one that includes an introductory interest-free period can help you move toward a debt-free life.

Your biggest push for making a balance transfer is to get a break from the interest that’s added to your balance. Depending on the offer, that may be up to 12 months. Making a balance transfer will allow you to take a real bite out of your debt and make progress toward getting rid of it completely.

Taking this significant step toward paying down your debt may motivate more careful spending habits.
