Barclay's Balance Transfer Checks

Anyone else receive these. 3.99% promotional APR.  They usually have a few month window to use them and the APR is good for about 9 months. Seems like I get them every month or two. Started right around the time of my last auto-CLI.

I seem to always get the 0% BT checks good for 12 months every other month for any of my 4 Barclay cards.  I don't think I've ever seen the 3.99% offer.  I don't use them so my shredder is happy to munch them away...albeit it's nice to get them.  For some folks, this comes in handy for alternative/temporary financing but as with any BTs, fees can be the killer.

Re: Barclay's Balance Transfer Checks

Yeah, the fees are $10. or 4% of the amount of each transaction. Whichever is greater. Max $99.00.
