Balance Transfer Promotional Code

What is a balance transfer promotional code? How can UK credit card customers make use of these balance transfer promotional codes in 2019?

The UK credit card companies will sometimes make additional 0% or low rate balance transfer offers to carefully selected existing credit card customers.

To allow these balance transfer offers, outside of any introductory balance transfer offer periods, the credit card companies will supply these customers with a balance transfer promotional code.

This balance transfer promotional code is usually provided as a sequence of numbers and letters. The codeBalance Transfer Promotional Code is specific to the type of offer the customer is being provided with.

The credit card customer can then use these balance transfer promotional codes when requesting an online balance transfer. Using this code ensures that they receive the special balance transfer deal that has been offered to them.

Balance Transfer Promotional Code

Here at Balance Transfer Expert we have seen numerous credit card customers searching for a balance transfer promotional code. Some of the more recent queries have included :-

  • Tesco credit card balance transfer promotional code
  • Promotional code for Halifax balance transfer
  • NatWest balance transfer promotional code
  • Tesco balance transfer promo code
  • RBS balance transfer promotional code
  • Post Office credit card promotional code

However, a balance transfer promotional code can not be used by just anyone.

In almost all cases when a credit card company supplies a balance transfer promotional code to a customer, the code is only available to that customer. The credit card company has carefully selected the customer. This selection is based on their credit history and their past usage of the credit card.

If you try and make a balance transfer using a code that has not been offered directly to you by the credit card company, then it is likely that either your balance transfer will be rejected or will be charged at the normal balance transfer APR.

This could mean that you end up paying the standard rate of 18.9% APR or higher on your balance transfer. As a result, rather than the special offer deal you thought you were going to get you will be paying a high interest rate.

If you do not have a promotional code available to you, then we have a choice of over 80 UK 0% balance transfer credit cards available. These include all of these popular featured cards :-
