Balance Transfer To Debit Card
Can you do a balance transfer to debit card and which 0% balance transfer credit cards allow you to make a balance transfer to debit card?
Currently, you can not make a balance transfer to debit card directly, but what you can do is make a credit card money transfer to the bank account that the debit card is linked to.
This balance transfer to your bank account transfers the money from the credit card company into your bank account, so making the money available to spend with your debit card.
Once the 0% balance transfer money is in your bank account, you can then use this money to make a purchase with your debit card. This could be, for example, where perhaps the merchant does not accept a credit card payment, but does accept a debit card payment.
Alternatively you can use this balance transfer money to pay off any outstanding loans or overdrafts you have. This balance transfer to debit card, via your bank account, effectively allows the customer to pay off any existing debts that have a higher interest rate.
The balance transfer to debit card, via your bank account, will allow the customer to pay 0% interest for the length of the introductory balance transfer offer available on the credit card.
