10 Steps to Pay Off Debt with a Zero Balance Transfer Credit Card
Published 5/17/10 (Modified 3/9/11)
A balance transfer credit card can be a useful resource for a credit card debt elimination plan. It allows you to consolidate debt into a single account and may lower your overall interest rate, helping to reduce your monthly payments and pay off your debt more quickly.
