A new card may be in your best interest. Nearly everyone receives offers like this in the mail: Transfer your existing credit card balance to a new card and pay zero or very low interest for a set number of months. If you make the switch, will you save on interest charges? As this calculator shows, it depends on the promotional rate, the length of the promotional period, and the long-term interest rate on the card.
Be on the lookout for offers of cards with low introductory rates.
