I apologize if this has been discussed here recently but I wanted to alert folks to the fact that most credit card companies have changed their policy regarding "convenience check" or "balance transfer" transaction fees.In the past, most offers I received for zero or low percentage fee transfers included a transaction fee of 3% with a minimum of $10 and a maximum of $75. Recently, however, I have noticed that there no longer is a maximum transaction fee on most of these offers. So even if you have a zero percentage fee offer, the transaction fee is 3% of the amount requested - with no maximum. This can be a big difference - particularly when you are planning on repaying the advance in a rather short period of time.I recently used a 1.99% offer (which did have a maximum transaction fee of $75) instead of a zero offer (which had no maximum on the transaction fee).I know it's already been said but please be sure to read all the fine print. It can make a huge difference!Christina
