Trapped in debt? Get a Visa Balance Transfer.

  • 2/1/2024

Escape the interest on your high rate credit cards by transferring balances to a Truity credit card. With rates at 0% for 12 months and as low as 14.24% thereafter, you're sure to save money.

A balance transfer is when you move part or all of the balance (debt) from a high interest credit card to another credit card with a lower interest rate. It’s one way to reduce and manage credit card debt and consolidate your debts into just one payment.

Many people have department store credit cards with interest rates averaging a whopping 28.93% annual percentage rate. If you have one or more of these, you will pay a lot of extra money each month if you don’t pay your balance in full.

When you transfer your balance from one of these cards to a Truity Visa with a 0% APR,* more of your payment will go towards paying down the balance, as opposed to paying the interest.

If you're able to pay more than the minimum payment due, you can make a lot of progress paying down your original balance. In addition, consolidating credit card debt makes it easier to remember due dates and avoid missing payments.

If you have a lot of debt you want to consolidate, a personal loan may be a better option. Contact us and we’ll be happy to take a look at your situation and help you find a way to pay off your debt.
