How does a "balance transfer" work? A balance transfer allows you to take your high-interest credit card balance from one card (or even multiple cards) and transfer it to a new credit card with a lower interest rate so you can save money on interest charges.

Many balance transfer cards offer a 0% intro APR for balance transfers until 2021, and some as long as 18 months!
