Questions About Balance Transfers?

A balance transfer is when you move the balance of one or multiple credit cards or other loans to a new or existing credit card account. It’s a smart way to save money on interest, consolidate payments and pay off credit card debt sooner.

If you’re looking to save on interest, lower your monthly payments, or consolidate payments, it’s worth looking into a balance transfer. This may be a helpful move, allowing you to pay off debt more quickly and take control of your finances.

That depends on a few factors. Applying for a new credit card will result in a hard inquiry on your credit report, which can lower your score temporarily. Adding a new card will affect your overall length of credit history, which could also temporarily lower your score. On the other side, a new card with a new line of credit can reduce your overall credit utilization, positively impacting your score.

I love this Credit Union!!! Best rates, highest payouts for deposits. Nice folks too. I am shifting the entirety of my indebtedness to them because the rates are so good, and I was tired of getting hit with huge interest at the end of every month. 5 stars.
