Credit cards with interest free period


I’m looking to get some new credit cards to make some big purchase. Are there any credit cards that are being offered with an interest free period?




Banks offer interest-free period for Credit Cards only in case of balance transfer. When you transfer the balance from your existing card to another one (offered by a different bank), you will be charged no interest for a certain period. If you don’t have a card, it is best for you to look for cards that have zero annual fee. To save on interest, you can convert your big purchases into EMI. Here are some zero annual fee Credit Cards.
