Expert review

The Citi Clear credit card gives you a long 0% balance transfer period with this introductory offer, which can help if you have existing debt you want to pay off. To give you an idea of the potential savings, if you balance transferred a $2,000 debt to this card, you could save $699.68 over the 36-month introductory period, compared to what you'd pay if the average standard credit card rate of 19.94% was charged.

On 1 June 2022, Citi's consumer banking business was acquired by NAB. Citi credit cards are still available for application and will have the Citi brand. However, the contract for these cards is now with NAB.

      Hi Ben,

      Transferring a balance of $15,000 from humm90 Mastercard is going to depend on the new card’s general terms and conditions and the credit limit that you’re approved for.

      If you’re interested in applying for Citi’s Clear Credit Card, please review first the eligibility requirements. The bank can allow you to transfer up to 80% of your approved credit limit without a balance transfer fee. They will usually base their approval of your credit limit on assessing your financial situation and overall qualifications.

      I hope this has helped.

      Chris
