Its not uncommon to find cards with 0% offers of both balance transfers and purchases for as long as or even long then a year, these cards provide the best of both helping those who are looking at switching an existing card over but to still be used regularly.

Interest free period

The time between when you purchase something on your card and the date when your monthly bill is to be paid. This can sometimes be 50 days or more and is interest-free meaning if you settle your credit card in full every month before the due date, it's free borrowing.

In its most simplistic form, you can figure out how much you pay per day, take the APR divided by 365. The shown APR is the interest you will pay if you have a good credit rating.
