Now is a great time to work toward reducing debt. In order to save money and reduce credit card debt, many people opt to transfer their credit card balances to cards with a lower rate.
TRANSFER YOUR BALANCES AND SAVE
If you’re carrying a balance on a credit card that isn’t from SLFCU, it’s possible you could save money while paying off the debt. Depending on the amount you transfer and the difference in your rate, the potential for savings can be significant.
NO BALANCE TRANSFER OR ANNUAL FEES
Many cards charge a fee to transfer balances: 3% of the balance is common. If you were to transfer a $4,000 balance to a credit card charging a 3% balance transfer fee, you would pay $120 just for the transaction. SLFCU does not charge a balance transfer fee or annual fee on our credit cards, which can help you pay off your credit card balance faster.
SIMPLIFY PAYMENTS BY CONSOLIDATING
Transferring a balance to your SLFCU credit card can simplify your financial life. You can log in to online banking to check your credit card balance, view transactions, and make payments.
To transfer your balances, send a secure message in online banking, call 505.293.0500 or 800.947.5328, or stop by any branch.
