Might not be new, but new to me.

I have to do landscaping in the backyard, HOA is after us and probably the neighbors too. Doing it ourselves probably going to cost at least 3-5K, thought about increasing home equity loan to have someone else do it since I have no clue on how to landscape. Anyway, point being we need some spending power at a low interest rate and this offer came along.

Get purchases for 0% until Oct. 2004 after making a balance transfer at 8.9% APR. At first glance I thought it was 0% for both balance transfers and purchases, I am glad I read more carefully or else I could have buried up to 5,000 in balance transfers at 8.9%.

Good thing is, fine print says a minimum balance transfer of $100 is needed for 0% on purchases until Oct. 2004. I am very tempted to transfer the minimum and using the card for landscape materials.

If anyone has advice on landscaping, please share!!
