How To Profit From 0% Interest Credit Cards



Credit cards equal debt, it's almost a universal truth.Almost.It is possible, and is being done right now, to turna profit from 0% credit cards.

Before we get started here are some things you needto realise before you even attempt to profit fromthese 0% interest credit cards.

1. It's no use making small percentage profits whenyou are already paying out large interest on debts elsewhere. Clear your debts first if you have anyapart from a mortgage.

2. You will need to be vigilant on the 0% periodsexpiry, most will be 6 months, and you need to makesure you pay the money back then.

3.You need to be able to forget you have the moneyyou borrowed on the credit card, and not dip into itfor any reason.

4. You will need a good credit score from the startof this venture or it won't happen at all.

Now with those little caveats out of the way, we can get to the meat of the idea, and profit fromthose credit card companies.

Firstly you will need to find a credit card with a 0% interest rate for at least six months, someeven offer up to nine months 0% interest. Thenyou need to apply for it, and wait.

You will also need either a loan or another creditcard you can draw up to the limit of your 0% card on. Now here comes the science bit.

Pay the limit of the 0% credit card into a bank accountby drawing it as cash or direct transfer, and immediatelyuse the 0% card to transfer the balance to the other cardto make it paid up.

The money you just got out can be placed into a highinterest savings account. Leave it there until you have to pay up the 0% card at which point you willstill only owe the original amount you transferredonto it. You will have made interest on the money while you had it and owe 0% interest.

If you have a real clean credit history you could eventransfer the balance from another o% interest credit cardto the first one, and leave the money earning interestin the savings account.

This is only meant as an informational overview, and youwill need to research the credit cards and relevantlaws in your own country or state. Here in the UKa few savvy people are using 0% interest credit cardsto make them a nice sum, and as long as you rememberthe few simple rules at the beginning of this articleyou could too.

Six Credit Card Secrets No Bank Wants You To Know



We all get them from time to time. You know, the sealed envelope in the mail that have a written message such as "You've Been Pre-Approved For A New Credit Card From..." If you are like me, you file them away- usually in the trashcan or shredder! Throughout many years of receiving those offers however, I've noticed many loopholes that anyone can use to their advantage. Weather you already have credit cards or still receiving new offers the following six secrets are what I learned to follow. Don't worry, they're easy methods anybody can do! This way you can lower how many credit cards you carry to one or two.

WHAT TO DO

1. Interest Backdating

THE PROBLEM: The majority of credit card issuers charge interest starting from the day a charge is posted to your account if you don't pay in full monthly. However you're being charged interest starting from the date of purchase before you've even paid the store!

THE SOLUTION: Look for another card issuer, or better yet, pay your bill in full by the due date.

2. Two-Cycle Billing

THE PROBLEM: Issuers who use this popular method of calculating interest charge two months worth of interest for the first month if you fail to pay off your total balance in full. It's affecting you whenever you switch from paying in full to continuously carrying a balance.

THE SOLUTION: You can either switch issuers or continue to pay your balance in full each month.

3. The Right To Setoff

THE PROBLEM: You have money on deposit at a bank. Plus your credit card is issued there. You signed an agreement when you opened the deposit account and it permits the bank to take those funds if you become delinquent on your credit card.

THE SOLUTION: You can either bank at a separate institution or avoid delinquencies.

4. Fees Are Negotiable

THE PROBLEM: You're paying up to $50 a year or more as an annual fee on your credit card. You also are subject to finance charges of over 18%.

THE SOLUTION: If you're a customer who normally pays on time, most banks are willing to reduce or drop the annual fee. Plus reduce the interest rate but only if you ask! Otherwise, you can switch to a lower- priced card.

5. Interest Rate Hikes Are Retroactive

THE PROBLEM: You signed up for a credit card with a low introductory rate, such as 1.9%, for six months to a year. After your time is up, your existing balance is subject to the regular or sometimes even higher interest rate.

THE SOLUTION: You can either pay your balance in full before the rate increase or close the account.

6. Shortened Due Dates

THE PROBLEM: Your initial offer included a 25-day grace period in which to pay for new purchases without incurring finance charges. However the bank have shortened the grace period to 20 days.

THE SOLUTION: Ask to go back to 25 days. You can do so by writing your bank explaining why you would rather stay at the preferred 25-day grace period. If you're refused, then switch to a different credit card issuer.

These techniques have worked for me time and time again, and I'm sure they will for you too. I've used them consistently to lower the quantity of cards I carry to now two. If you follow these proven techniques this way, not only will you lower your chances of falling into debt, your monthly bill payments will be a lot easier and simple.
