I agree, you have to read the fine print on those convenience checks, and guess what? It's a little different almost every time. The key items to look for are: cash advance charge maximum, whether there is any cash advance charge, how long the special rate lasts, when you have to use the checks by.

Just recently a couple of our cards came out with an increased cash advance maximum from 50 to 79!

We use these in getting our credit card debt under control. Pay down the cards as fast as possible, and use only the cash advance checks where the charge is waived when transferring from a high interest account to the promotional interest account. - Joel
