AUSTIN, Texas, March 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Citi Diamond Preferred and Chase Slate are the best balance transfer credit cards, according to CreditCards.com. Citi's offering has the longest 0% introductory period (21 months), although it charges a 3% or $5 transfer fee (whichever is higher). Chase Slate contrasts by offering a fee-free transfer within 60 days of account opening. Its 0% period, however, isn't as long (15 months). Click here for more information:
Following the tie at the top is the BankAmericard. This third-place winner isn't as flashy as some of its competitors. Still, its 18-month 0% offer is notable and its 11.49% post-intro rate is lower than its competitors.
