    If my debt I want to transfer is made up of cash adv debt as well as purchase debt, will it all be transferred over as ‘purchase debt’. I just want to ensure the cash adv debt amount that will be transferred will be eligible for the 0%

      Hi Sam,

      Thank you for contacting finder. We are a comparison website and general information service, we’re more than happy to offer general advice.

      According to St. George, generally a promotional rate will apply to ANY balance(s) transferred (min $200 up to 95% of your approved available credit limit) for the promotional period. This means that they do not differentiate between debt ‘types’ as such, they just take the balance as a whole. They recommend you double-check this against the particular card type and promotion terms you’re applying for by asking at a branch or discussing with a Credit Card specialist on their hotline.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Danielle

    I have a personal loan of around $3,000. Can I put that amount on my current credit card to end the loan and then do the balance transfer to St. George to get this great offer?

    • Staff
      JonathanJune 16, 2017Staff

      Hi Scott!

      Thanks for the comment.

      Currently, only Citi and Virgin Money allows it. You can check our comparison page for those issuers who allow balance transfer for a personal loan to a credit card.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    Hi, does this card offer a balance transfer from a personal loan? If not are there ones that do beside Citibank or Virgin?
    Thank you

      Hi Scott,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, among the credit cards we feature on our website, only Citi and Virgin credit cards allow balance transfer of personal loans.

    Hi there.
    Is it possible to pay off the balance transferred before the 14 month interest free? Or do repayments need to be spread out over the 14 months?

    • Staff
      LiezlMay 29, 2017Staff

      Hi Marys,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, you can repay your entire debt before the 14-month interest-free period ends. With 0% promotional balance transfers, it would be ideal to pay more than the minimum repayment each month so you’ll be able to pay the entire debt by the end of the balance transfer period and avoid interest altogether.

      Cheers,
      Liezl

    Hi

    1. Can the balance of 28 Degrees credit card be transferred?
    2. If yes, as of what date does the balance gets transferred? What if there are pending transactions as of the joining date?
    3. When it says 14 month interest free balance transfer does this mean the transferred balance can be parked for 14 montha with no minimum monthly payment?

    • Staff
      AnndyMay 7, 2017Staff

      Hi Hannah,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, you may transfer a balance from 28 Degrees credit card to St. George Vertigo Visa Card. Once your card is approved and activated, the balance transfer will take up to 14 days to complete.

      During the application process, you may request to transfer all your outstanding balance from the old card to St. George card. However, there is no guarantee that the total amount you requested for balance transfer will be approved. Ultimately, the total amount that you can transfer will depend on your approved credit card limit with St. George.

      0% p.a. for 14 months means that you will not incur interest on the balance transfer amount for 14 months. However, you are still required to pay the minimum monthly repayment of 2% or $10 whichever is greater.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    I have a St George Virtigo visa card already. Am I eligible for this balance transfer offer?

    • Staff
      HaroldApril 28, 2017Staff

      Hi Thilini,

      Basically, with St.George Vertigo Visa Card you can take advantage of 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 12 months. After that, the low standard variable purchase rate will apply to any balance remaining. Apply before 1 May 2017 to take advantage of these offers.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

    Re the St George Vertigo card, does the 0% for the first 6 months on purchases mean 0% from the date the card account is started only, or 0% for each purchase from the date of each purchase on a continuous basis? Do purchases include all transactions such as payment for meals?

    • Staff
      AnndyApril 6, 2017Staff

      Hi Richard,

      Thanks for your question.

      The purchase rate of 0% p.a. for 6 months means that for six months from the time of card approval, you’ll not pay any interest on purchases even if you don’t pay your balance in full. After six months, all purchases that are not paid in full at the end of the billing period will attract an interest of 13.24% p.a.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    Have just received the Vertigo Visa Credit Card as a replacement for my current Visa Credit Card.
    Will I be able to use the same pin with the new card?

    • Staff
      AnndyMarch 28, 2017Staff

      Hi Erich,

      Thanks for your question.

      For replacement cards, your existing PIN applies. However, If you wish to change it, you can do so online when you activate your card. You may also change your PIN at a St.George ATM or by visiting your local St.George branch with your card and photo ID.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
