    Can I transfer the balance of two separate cards from different Banks if both balances owing are below 90% of the credit card limits?

    • finder Customer Care
      JohnNovember 8, 2018Staff

      Hi Nathan,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Yes this is possible. As long as the debt is 90% or lower from the card’s credit limit then this will push through. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie

    I have a $5000 low rate credit card with ANZ. What would be the lowest minimum repayment amount if I max the card out?

    • finder Customer Care
      RenchJuly 8, 2017Staff

      Hi Rob,

      Thanks for reaching out to us. Please note that we are not affiliated with ANZ or any company we feature on our site and so we can only offer you general advice.

      On a $5,000 card balance with a minimum repayment of 3% for example, you’d need to pay at least $150 each month. You can calculate how much 3% of your balance is with the following formula: (3/100) x (your balance) = (your balance repayment amount). You can get this info on this page.

      I suggest contacting ANZ directly to further confirm the information.

      Cheers,
      Rench

      Hi Greg,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you apply for ANZ Low Rate Credit Card balance transfer, the online application process just takes about 10-15 minutes. Once approved, the balance transfer can take between three to 15 business days to process, depending on which bank you are transferring a balance from.

    Hi why does it say this card will revert to 21.74 percent at the top on balance transfers at the end of 18 month transfer period, yet on the side under Pro’s it says it will revert to the low purchase rate at this time which is 13.49 percent? Confused??

    • finder Customer Care
      LouJuly 11, 2016Staff

      Hi Nigel,

      Thanks for your comment and for pointing that out.

      Just to clarify, the ANZ Low Rate Credit Card has a balance transfer revert rate of 21.74% p.a., which is the same as the cash advance rate of interest.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

      Hi Tristan,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The balance transfer offer of 18 months applies to new approved customers only and not available to any balances transferred from an existing ANZ account.

      For a comparison of other credit cards that offer balance transfers, please refer to this page.

      I hope this helps.

    hi if i get $800 cash advance and i will pay it back in few days do i still need to pay my other non cash advance purchase to avoid high interest, i have -$1000 on my credit card i took $800 cash advance and pay it back, do i still need to pay that -1000 to avoid higher interest?

    • finder Customer Care
      JonathanDecember 4, 2015Staff

      Hi Peter, thanks for your inquiry!

      Non cash advance purchases will be charged at the purchase rate and not the cash advance rate. If you have cleared your previous months balance then you will be eligible for 55 interest-free days with the ANZ Low Rate credit card. This will allow you to avoid interest on your purchases. You can learn more about interest-free days on this page.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
