Balance Transfer Cards

If you've racked up a lot of debt from the wedding and honeymoon, you may want to look into a balance transfer credit card. Balance transfer cards can help you consolidate your debt onto one card and save money. Consider these options if you want to focus on paying off your wedding debt:

In addition, they have a generous cash back program with 5% cash back on up to $1500 in rotating categories (currently restaurant and movie purchases) and 1% cash back on all other purchases. There are no annual fees, overlimit fees, or foreign transaction fees. Discover it also offers a free FICO credit score on your monthly statements.

Citi Simplicity Card

The Citi Simplicity Card is also a great option for balance transfers with 0% intro APR on balance transfers for 18 months. In addition, they have 0% intro APR on purchases for 18 months.
