Sometimes, the coolest thing about a credit card is the rewards — cash back, hotel points, travel miles, oh my! But sometimes, what you really need in a credit card is a way to lighten the load of other credit cards.

If you have balances on high interest rate cards, check out these offers for zero percent introductory rates on balance transfers and purchases lasting up to 18 months. These cards have other perks, too, of course. See which one best fits your financial needs and spending habits.

Blue Cash Everyday Card from Amex

American Express

Why we like it: This card offers an introductory zero percent interest rate for the first 15 months, on both purchases and balance transfers. This may be worth it for you if you need to transfer balances from higher interest rate cards. It also offers substantial cash-back rewards on everyday purchases, including gas and groceries, and has no annual fee.

More details:

  • Get a statement credit of $150 after spending $1,000 within three months of opening the account.
  • Get 3 percent cash back on up to $6,000 of purchases per year at U.S. supermarkets (then 1 percent).
  • Earn 2 percent cash back at gas stations and select department stores in the U.S., plus 1 percent back on other purchases.
  • No annual fee.

Note: Balance transfers are subject to a fee — $5 or 3 percent, whichever is greater.
