What’s the benefit of transferring my balance?

A balance transfer could help you save on interest charges and could help you manage your card repayments. By transferring the outstanding balance of your other credit or store card accounts to an ANZ credit card account and closing those other accounts, you only have to manage on card.

Transferring your balance to a credit card account with a lower interest rate could help you save on interest which means you can pay off your balance faster.

What’s the interest rate of my non-ANZ card, and where can I find it?

You should be able to find out the interest rate of your non-ANZ credit or store card account by checking your statement, calling your account provider or by visiting their website.
