CreditCardsCanada.ca Review

This “no frills” credit card was designed for one thing – balance transfers. If you need to lower your interest payments and pay down your credit card debt, then a balance transfer is a great option.

Here’s how a balance transfer works; By moving the outstanding balance on your existing credit card to a new credit card with a lower interest rate, you will save money on interest payments. The process is simple and is handled by the bank. You just need to provide some details about your account and the new credit card company takes care of the rest.

The MBNA Platinum Plus® MasterCard comes with an industry leading 0% promotional interest rate on balance transfers for the first 12 months. That means 100% of your monthly payments will go towards paying down your balance!

There is a 1% fee of the amount transferred, but that is competitive with other cards. There is no annual fee with the Platinum Plus card.

For people carrying monthly credit card debt a balance transfer is the answer to help reduce that debt. If this sounds like you, choose a card with a low promo rate like the MBNA Platinum Plus® MasterCard.
