    0% credit card help 13th Oct 16 at 9:09 PM
    Looking to use a 0% credit card to purchase a car. Approx value of 10k. What would be the minimum monthly repayments roughly? Then at the end of the term I'd want to transfer the balance to another 0% car - is this possible? Thanks

    It depends which card you get. Some are 1% of the balance.

    You would need to see in the T&Cs how the minimum payment is calculated for your particular card.

    The highest is probably 2.5℅ of balance, so quite a range.

    Don't forget to check the dealer's fee.
