If you have more than one credit card or store card, making repayments can be complicated. If you transfer your non-ANZ credit or store card balances to an ANZ personal credit card, you could get back in control and save money on interest so you could reduce your debt sooner1.
This offer is also available for existing ANZ cardholders.
ANZ balance transfer benefits:
- you could save money on interest repayments
- you could reduce the amount of fees you have to pay if you are paying fees across a number of credit and store cards
- having one credit card and one repayment is easier than managing multiple card repayments
- you can transfer balances from your non-ANZ credit or store cards onto any ANZ personal credit cards so you can find one that best suits your needs
- to make it easier, we’ll help you sort out the transfers.
