I've got credit cards with most of the major banks (all but one has a $0 balance) and also a Q Card and GEM Visa.

 

Am a bit of a fan of balance transfers, and interest free periods (and the like).  Was thinking of creating a private forum where we can discuss what current offerings the banks have, and how to best utilise them.

 

Anyone else here keen?

Start a thread in the VIP Lounge?





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

 

Thinking about signing up to BigPipe? Get $20 credit with my referral link.

I'm interested in so far as I use these things and haven't thought enough about how to best use them. 

 

I could geek out on financial instruments....yeah.

 

Would this be limited to banking or would things like Bitcoin to bank interfaces also be on topic?

Was actually looking at interest free balance transfers earlier this week myself!

Private forum? Are you trying to keep bank staff (and/or their families) out of it? cool





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Hmm, not sure right now.  Obviously not trying to do anything fraudulent, just making the different banking products work to my advantage :)

Good idea there is a lack of that sort of knowledge out there, although is there a reason it would be a  private one?
