How balance transfers work
Interest on the amount you transfer
At 0% p.a., your transferred balance will accrue no interest for 12 months.
If any of your transferred balance hasn’t been paid off and is still on your credit card after 12 months, you’ll be charged the standard purchase interest rate on this amount. Check out our credit cards rates and fees.
Interest on any new purchases
You’ll pay the standard purchase interest rate on any new purchases you make with your card (purchases made with the card do not qualify for the 0% p.a. rate).
For standard purchase rates check out our credit cards rates and fees.
All credit card repayments will go towards paying off your transferred balance first. Any purchases (or cash advances you make) won’t be paid off until you've cleared all the transferred balance.
