Yes, 0% purchase & balance transfer for 15 months. However, you cannot transfer any balance from accounts issued by Chase and its affiliates.

It should bother you. CSP is a good card for moderate-to-heavy travelers/diners/Freedom users who don't mind the complications of point transfers. It's not a good card for anyone who doesn't pay in full. It's 15.99% interest right away - there's no 0% intro period.

To be clear, it does have a reasonable 21 day grace period, as all better-than-horrible cards do.
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco
Travel insurance: Prestige, CSP
Perks: IHG, Hyatt
Rewards/Offers: Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE
Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card

I was afraid of that part...I'll keep the freedom in mind if any of these BTs or balances with 0 interest I currently have get dangerously close to maturity date and I need to act quick (I don't anticipate that scenario though as I have been paying each of them off quick.)

AMEX Platinum (Charge) [11-16]
AMEX EDay $12,000 [11-14]
