Cardholders who are interested in consolidating their existing credit card balances in one place can do so with Cooperative Bank’s Balance Transfer Credit Card. Presenting 0% interest on balance transfers for 24 months, this said credit card facilitates easier balance transfers for individuals with multiple credit card balances. 95% of customers’ credit limit can be transferred to their Cooperative Bank credit card.
Under this offering, balances are advised to be transferred within 60 days of opening the account. After this period, Cooperative Bank will charge users a 1% balance transfer fee. Likewise, customers are advised to note that after the 24-month introductory period, the balance transfer fee will increase to 20.6% per year. The same rules apply towards purchases, garnering a 0% interest per annum for 4 months before increasing to 20.6%.
Cooperative Bank makes this option appealing and accessible to cardholders who are in need of transferring their balances. Through this initiative, customers won’t lose their introductory offer despite making mistakes regarding their account and in terms of late payments. Instead of retracting user benefits, the bank simply charges the cardholder.
Interested parties can apply for the Cooperative Bank Balance Transfer Credit Card online. To be eligible for this credit card, applicants must be over the age of 18 to apply and must be a resident of UK. Customers must also earn a gross annual income of £10,000 to qualify.
