Next Advisor – Stop wasting money on interest fees! If you’re carrying balances on high-interest credit cards or you need to make a purchase that you won’t be able to pay off right away, there’s no need to waste money paying interest. In fact, you can avoid any interest payments at all until 2016.
Credit card issuers are pursuing potential customers by offering extremely generous 0% APR intro deals for truly lengthy periods of time. Take advantage of the available offers to save yourself a ton of cash, or to give yourself some breathing room and time to pay down your balances.
We’ve done the research and put together a list of the top cards with 0% intro APR periods so long you won’t pay any interest until 2016.
Can you say 18-month 0% APR? It’s true, you’ll enjoy no interest on balance transfers and purchases until 2016, providing plenty of time to pay down your balance. Plus there are no late fees, no enalty fees and no annual fee. Overall this is a stellar pick for anyone looking to save money on interest fees as they work to decrease their balance, or someone who’d like to make a large dollar purchase now and not worry about paying interest until next year.
Citi Diamond Preferred Car
Offering an 18-month 0% APR period on balance transfers and purchases, this card is a winner. And after the 1.5 year zero interest period is up, you’ll enjoy a low ongoing APR. Plus there’s no annual fee to worry
about. Even if you don’t have any balances to transfer, this card is still a great way to make purchases now (summer holiday anyone?) and pay no interest until 2016.

When you combine a terrific 18-month 0% intro APR with cash back rewards, it’s hard to go wrong. Although the 18-month 0% intro APR is just for balance transfers, you can also take advantage of a 6-month 0% intro APR on purchases and the low post-intro APR rate. Plus you’ll earn 5% cash back on categories that rotate quarterly and 1% cash back on everything else. Did I mention there’s no annual fee
and no foreign transaction fees? This means you can make purchases outside the U.S. without worrying about extra fees, which is a nice touch if you’re traveling internationally in the future.
This card doesn’t quite have the incredible 18-month 0% APR the other cards do, but it’s still a strong contender:
With a 15-month 0% intro APR on balance transfers and purchases AND the honor of being the only 0% intro card that doesn’t charge balance transfer fees, this is our top-ranked balance transfer card. Zero balance transfer fees can add up to serious savings, as many cards charge up to 3% of the amount you’re transferring. Chase Slate allows you to transfer your balances from other credit cards without paying a cent, and gives you the time you need to start paying down the balance. Although the 15-month 0% APR period won’t take you into 2016, it’s still a great card to help you manage any credit card debt you may currently have or to make large purchases now that you don’t want to pay off until next year.
