    Which Credit card will let me transfer partners debts

    Which Credit card will let me transfer partners debts 28th Nov 17 at 2:28 PM
    Hello, I am wanting to apply for a 0% of balance transfers credit card. Please can anyone advice which credit cards will let me do this and transfer my partners credit card debts to it ?

    Yes I know I will become the person reasonable for the money owed after.

    It is just we want to move in together and it is impossible with what he is paying out at the moment on interest.
    I again fully understand it becomes my responsibility.

    But I read some where someone applied for a Tesco 0% interest credit card and even though they got approved, they would let them transfer the debt from someone else's card.

    But I have read it can be done, but know one says which card providers??

    Any help on which ones would be great. The only one I can't apply for and do it, is Barclaycard as I have one already.

    Thank you.

    Don't do it unless you're in a long term almost marriage like relationship, and even then think twice about doing it, sound like a good way to be left with the burden on someone else's debt.

    If he wanted to really move in with you he would pay down his debts himself.

    But any card should allow you to do it, I don't think any cards put a caveat that you must be the card account holder.

    Most, apart from Tesco, are ok. Just do the BT online rather than over the phone and then you can just put the card number in without anyone asking if it is in your name

    Stay away from taking on your Partners debt. As above it could lead to bad things and will cause tension.

    Please think twice.

    We have taken on DDs debt at 0% without any problem plus we did a transfer to out DS bank account at 0% again without any problems. We had to pay a fee each time.
    We used Barclaycard and Halifax cards to do this.
