There are a lot of people who open a new credit card for large purchases to take advantage of a limited time 0% interest promotion and promise themselves they would pay it off. But what happens when life throws a curveball and they can no longer pay off the balance in that amount of time? Most likely they’ll end up with an interest rate in the double digits.
If you have a high-interest store card or credit card, did you know that you can transfer that balance to a SouthPoint Visa card for free?
Benefits of a balance transfer include:
- Introductory 0% APR* interest for the first 6 months
- No fees to transfer the balance
- After introductory interest period ends, a low standard variable rate from 7.00%-18.00% APR
- Local assistance and on-site servicing
According to creditcards.com the average interest rate on the most popular credit cards in December 2018 climbed to 17.21% APR. At SouthPoint, we offer rates as low as 7.00% fixed interest on our cards, helping you save money on interest payments. A lower interest rate means you will be able to pay off your principal balance quicker than before. Transferring your balance is simple. You’ll need the following information handy to complete your transfer:
- The name on the card you are transferring the balance from
- The card number
