What is a Balance Transfer?

Balance transfers can help you save on interest charges, by letting you move the balance(s) on your other credit cards or loans to your Kogan Money Credit Card at a promotional interest rate for a set period. While you have a balance transfer you will not be eligible for any interest-free days. At the end of the period, the interest rate on any outstanding transferred balance (and any related fees) will revert to the applicable Annual Percentage Rate for Cash Advances.

Balance transfers will only be processed once you have received and activated your credit card.

Will my balance transfer affect my interest-free days?

Yes, while the transferred balance will be charged a promotional interest rate, you should also be aware that while you have a balance transfer there will be no interest-free days on your account.

When your balance transfer period ends, any remaining balance will be charged interest at the applicable Annual Purchase Rate for Cash Advances.

When will my credit card payments be applied to my balance transfer?

The payments you make on your credit card will be applied firstly to any Monthly Instalment(s) due for an Instalment Plan; and then to the portion of your balance that attracts the highest interest rate; and then to the portion of your balance attracting the next-highest interest rate and so on.

As the promotional interest rate offered for balance transfers is generally low, and often 0%, you should assume that any payments will be applied to your other balances before they begin to reduce your transferred balance.
