0.99% p.a. balance transfer

A balance transfer can be a simple way to save on interest and repay more of your balance sooner. When you apply for the Platinum Edge Credit Card online or over the phone as a new Card Member, you can also apply at the same time to transfer an existing balance from another account.

You can transfer a maximum of 50% of your credit limit, up to $7,500 maximum. A one-off 1% credit plan establishment fee applies to any balances transferred.

This offer excludes existing or previous Card Members. The rate of 0.99% p.a. expires at the end of the first 6 months of your Card Membership and after that date the standard rate of interest will be charged on any remaining balances on your account.
