Sick of paying to use your credit card? Well, there are more than 25 cards that could be used potentially without incurring fees or interest, a new credit card analysis has found.
RateCity has found a range of credit cards that don’t charge an annual fee and that offer a maximum interest-free period of at least 44 days (see table below).
So if you have one of those credit cards and pay off your entire debt each month, you won’t have to pay a cent in fees or interest – assuming you restrict yourself to domestic purchases.
If you use the cards overseas or buy products from foreign websites, you might be charged international transaction fees and currency conversion fees. If you use the cards to make cash advances, you might be charged cash advance fees.
