ALL ABOUT BALANCE TRANSFERS

Balance transfers can be a huge relief because they allow you to consolidate high-interest debt onto a credit card with a lower interest rate. By doing so, you can potentially save money on interest payments and pay off your debt more quickly. It also simplifies your finances by combining multiple payments into one, making it easier to manage.

  • Pay off debt interest-free within the 15 month introductory period.1
  • Transfer balances within the first 90 days to consolidate multiple balances onto your Freedom Visa at a 0% APR.2
  • After that, your card will have a variable rate of 12.99% – 18.00% for Platinum or 14.49% – 18.00% APR for Platinum Rewards2
  • There is no annual fee, but there is a low 3% Balance Transfer Fee.2
  • Minimum payment is 2.00% of your total new balance, or $30.00, whichever is greater.
  • Others fees may include a Cash Advance Fee or Foreign Transaction Fee if applicable.

To complete the application, you’ll need to have a 20-day payoff and all card and payment address information. If you have questions, please contact us.
