Conditions of the balance transfer to your existing ANZ credit card

ANZ accepts balance transfers of $100 or more from certain non-ANZ accounts (for example, a credit, charge or store card account). 

ANZ cannot accept a balance transfer:

  • from other ANZ credit card accounts
  • from credit cards issued outside Australia
  • if the balance of your card has reached 95% or more of the available credit limit balance
  • if your existing account is in default at the time the application is received.

Please note: The maximum total balance transfer amount is 95% of your available funds at the time the balance transfer is processed, or $30,000, whichever is lower. If processing your balance transfer means your card has reached 95% or more of your available credit limit, we won't be able to process the full amount (we may, however, be able to process part of the balance).

The offer is for a Promotional Plan balance transfer of 1.99% p.a. for 6 months. The balance transfer amount will be charged interest at the Promotional Plan annual percentage interest rate from the date the balance transfer is processed. At the end of the Promotional Plan period, the standard annual percentage rate for balance transfers will apply to any unpaid Promotional Plan balance. Payments to your account are applied in accordiance with the ANZ Credit Cards Conditions of Use (PDF 432kB).
