Best No Fee 0% APR Balance Transfer Offers (Updated December 2011… Up to 21 Months!)


More than a few people have asked about some good 0% APR Balance Transfer offers, and the ability to save tons of interest with no fee offers or even many low fee offers.
I’ve looked at hundreds of cards online, scoured the “Terms & Conditions” fine print, and the listed ones below are the best that I’ve found with the longest 0% APR periods and the lowest fees. It’s been really hard to avoid all fees these days, but they can still be found occasionally, and even with a small fee the overall APR can still be very low with a nice long balance transfer term. I’ve tried to include a variety of card issuers – and have highlighted the important details in the fine print. Just click on the card name to go directly to the correct offer and card application. Updated as of December 2011.
Slate from Chase Visa1) Slate from Chase – Limited Time: No Balance Transfer Fee –Intro 0% APR on balance transfers and purchases for 12 months and NO balance transfer fee! With no balance transfer fee, the Slate from Chase is offering interest free payments for up to 12 months with no catch and no annual fee.  The 0% intro APR is also extended on purchases for 12 months and once the intro rate has expired, the purchase APR becomes 11.99% – 21.99% variable.
Citi Diamond Preferred Card2) Citi Diamond Preferred Card – $200 Statement Credit – 0% APR on balance transfers and purchases for 18 months. In addition, you will earn a $200 statement credit after you make $500 online purchases in your first 3 months. You can both transfer a balance and also keep charging purchases on it without paying any interest during the 0% introductory period. As the balance transfer fee is 3% with a $5 minimum, a $200 credit would cover the balance transfer fee completely for balances up to $6,650. No annual fee.
Citi Platinum Select Mastercard3) Citi Platinum Select MasterCard – 0% APR on balance transfers and purchases for 21 months. That’s nearly 2 years at 0% interest for balance transfers and purchases!

Discover More Long Duration BT Card4) Discover More Card – 0% APR on balance transfers for 18 months and purchases for 6 months.
