BalanceTranfers.com Offers Tips to Help Consumers Take Advantage of Competitive Balance Transfer Promotions

With so many banks currently offering low promotional rates, BalanceTransfers.com lists the top four tips to help consumers take advantage of credit card balance transferring.

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind., Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- According to BalanceTranfers.com, now is the time for consumers to look into the benefits of credit card balance transfer offers. "Banks are currently in competition mode and promotional offers are on the rise," says Michael Yanda, owner of BalanceTransfers.com. "Right now, for example, there are cards offering 0% rates for 21 months." To help consumers take advantage of credit card balance transfer offers like this one, BalanceTransfers.com is offering a few important tips to keep in mind:

1. Search for the lowest rates.
A balance transfer can be made from one or more credit cards. Consumers can transfer debt to a new card with a better interest rate, often as low as 0%.

2. Pay attention to the promotional period.
Yanda says the balance transfer promotional period typically lasts for six months up to two years. But be aware of the promotion's end date -- at the end of the promotional period, the card will begin to carry its normal APR (which can be in the upper teens).

3. Have a plan and stick to it.
A balance transfer can save consumers money, but Yanda advises, "You must have a plan and stick to it. If you want to save interest charges and pay off your credit card debt, a balance transfer can buy you some interest-free time. However, you have to take advantage of it while it's still interest-free. The 0% balance transfer lets you put all your credit card payments into paying off the balance, without those pesky interest fees taking a chunk of your money. But that promotional period has a time limit, and it's best to pay as much as you can, as fast as you can, before that time runs out."

4. Don't make it a habit.
Yanda warns that consumers should be very cautious about trying to use credit card balance transfers as a permanent trick to get out of paying interest fees to the credit card companies. "You never know when the 0% interest offers will stop coming," he says.

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
