The list below shows how much you can save if you transfer $10,000 from a credit card with 18% APR and no annual fee to credit cards below (~120 cards in total). 12 months of 2% minimal monthly payments to the new card are assumed. Annual fee, if not waved for the first year, and balance transfer fees, if any, are included in the calculations. I assume that one will apply for a new card and, therefore, will be eligible for promo BT rates. The scripts that do calculations and build a database with card terms may still have some bugs... so if something does not look right, please let me know.
