Survey highlights: Best 0% credit cards

Credit Cards » 0% Credit Cards » Survey Highlights: Best 0% Credit Cards, a Bankrate-owned website, reviewed some 100 cards from 24 issuers and found 38 offers of "0% credit cards." The sample was meant to be as representative as possible of the cards likely carried by Americans, in categories including student, business, rewards and cash-back cards, among others. Bankrate has disregarded the business cards, leaving a field of 89 consumer cards from which this list of 38 interest-free credit cards was derived.

From that list, we have culled the best options for several enticing terms.
