Factors to Consider
The main factors to consider from a credit card are the long term interest rates, and the level of any additional services or rewards offered. Remember to look for a good value long term APR, rather than being tempted by 0% APR offers alone.
Reducing Your Monthly Payments
You may also be looking to reduce your current monthly payments. Whilst balance transfer offers, or low interest rates on purchases may help you to do this, remember that taking a look at your credit cards as part of an overall review of your borrowing may open up ways to reduce your payments further. A personal loan, home-owner loan, or a remortgage package on your house may be options worth considering.
