Chase Slate® Review

Chase Slate®
Bottom Line:
Great choice for balance transfers; $0 intro balance transfer fee, 0% intro APR on purchases & transfers for 15 months

Full Review:
Chase Slate® is a smart choice for those who'd like to consolidate their higher interest rate credit card balances onto a single, lower interest rate card. It's one of the few cards we review that combines no balance transfer fees with a lengthy 15-month 0% intro APR on both purchases and balance transfers. Not paying a dime to transfer your balances onto Chase Slate can save you a bunch of money, plus you won't have to pay any interest on new purchases or your balance transfers for over a year. You do need to transfer your balances to this card in the first 60 days to take advantage of no balance transfer fees, but this shouldn't be an issue for most.

Another great feature Chase Slate offers is there is no penalty APR. This means that your APR will not increase if you are late on a payment (this is more pertinent to after the 0% intro APR period). It's a big perk for those who might forget to pay on time every now and then, as paying late won't cause an increase in your ongoing interest rate.

Chase Slate also provides you with a free monthly Experian FICO® Score, along with a credit dashboard that explains the reasons behind your score and provides helpful tips on ways to manage your credit health. Getting a free FICO® Score is a great way to assist in keeping track of your credit and even though the score is only from one credit bureau (Experian) and not all 3 of them, this is still a terrific bonus. Other card benefits include embedded EMT chip technology, which makes traveling outside the U.S. easier, and Purchase Protection.
