I am thinking about getting one to transfer my current card's balance onto so I can pay it off sooner. My current card has a fairly low fixed rate (9.9%), but I'd be able to pay off my debt sooner with a 0% card. Is there anything I need to look out for?

I assume it's a 0% APR for some short term like 12 months? And is the balance transfer rate also 0%?

Yup, be aware of the fine print, it may be a 0% on purchases, but balance transfers may be different.

Just watch them add the interest rate for 12 months onto the bill if you don't pay it in full.

They charge typically to transfer in a balance. Life happens and emergencies but 10% interest is crazy for everyday purchases.

The interest rate if you miss a payment is very steep and sometimes applied for two months. A work pay check bounced due to a stop payment and cost my company I work for $300 in late fees, penalties and back interest they covered. $150 of it was credit card related.

The Citibank card I looked up has no annual fee, and is 0% for purchases and balance transfers, good for 21 months. The only fee I saw was for 3% on a balance transfer. I'm looking the diamond preferred card...

Purchases are usually higher priced,
but since balance transfers are "big money" for them in one shot,
the balance transfers can be a big money saver.
Have to do the math, though...

Why not just pay off the entire balance ?

Sounds like the way to go! I paid my car off with one a while back and it worked out great.

I don't quite understand your question. Obviously, if I had $10K lying around I would do just that, but like most people with credit card balances, I can only pay so much a month. I will be paying $500 a month, though I might able to squeeze out $600 a month, and my total amount paid would be less if I had 0% interest...
