Capital One Balance Transfer Offers

Capital One Balance Transfer Offers

Capital One balance transfer offers in the UK have been noticeable largely by their absence over recent years.

Ever since the start of the credit crunch and the banking crisis which caused it, there have been only very limited periods of time where 0% Capital One balance transfer offers have been available on the Capital One range of credit cards.

The Capital One credit cards that have been available in the UK  market have been targeted at those customers who have a bad credit history, or at those customers looking for a credit builder product to rebuild their credit rating, after problems in the past.

Capital One Balance Transfer Offers

The most popular Capital One credit card currently has an annual interest rate of 34.9%. Customers of other credit cards can make a balance transfer to Capital One with this card. However, given the very high rate of interest on balance transfers, this is unlikely to be a popular option for most UK credit card customers.

Capital One balance transfer offers are only likely to appeal to customers with a very high interest rate on their existing credit card, such as customers looking for a Vanquis balance transfer.

Capital One Balance Transfer Existing Customers

Existing customers with a Capital One credit card can of course make a balance transfer to many of the other UK balance transfer credit cards.

Capital One balance transfer offers for existing customers are available on a wide range of UK 0% credit cards. A balance transfer from a Capital One credit card does offer an existing customer an opportunity to save money, by paying a lot less in interest.

When looking for Capital One balance transfer offers for existing customers, a customer will need to have an improved credit rating to successfully apply for any new 0% balance transfer credit card.

Existing Capital One credit card customers are in general, much more likely to be accepted for a new 0% balance transfer credit card in the UK, if they can meet the following criteria:-

  • You have had a Capital one credit card for at least a year or longer
  • You have made the minimum payment, or more, on time every month
  • You have no recent late payments on any other debt
  • You do not have any recent CCJ’s
  • You have a low level of overall debt in relation to  your annual income, excluding any mortgage

The following popular featured balance transfer credit cards are, given all of the above, likely to be suitable for existing Capital One customers looking for a balance transfer :-
