Apply interest to average daily balances of all kinds. Balance transfers may take up to 4 weeks to show. Thus could be first month balance transfer as +.01-(.08/12)= .0033 which is 33.33 dollars per 10 thousand, and also plan to deduct the extra time in bank assembling invoice for statement, mailing, snail-mail transit, receiving,opening, paying in full for reverse processes times the interest for minus a few Bernankes. But good to postpone the inevitable if one carries card balances forward while awaiting lottery jackpots.
