When credit card debt is piling up, it might seem as though there’s no way out. A balance transfer card like the Navy Federal Credit Union® Platinum Credit Card can provide some time to catch up on payments.

Through August 2017, this credit card offers 0% on Balance Transfers for 12 months, and then the ongoing APR of 8.24% - 18.00% Variable. The introductory APR applies only to balance transfers requested within 30 days of opening the account. The Navy Federal Credit Union® Platinum Credit Card doesn’t charge balance transfer fees, and the $0.

Transferring a balance from another issuer’s high-interest card to the Navy Federal Credit Union® Platinum Credit Card lets you pay off debt faster. You won’t have to worry about interest payments for 12 months, and you won’t be charged a percentage of the transferred balance. Your credit limit determines the amount you can transfer. 

Depending on your credit score, you could have a low, ongoing APR once the introductory period ends. For comparison, the average APR for credit card accounts assessed interest in the first quarter of 2017 was 13.86%, according to Federal Reserve data.

You need a qualifying credit score and a membership at Navy Federal Credit Union to be eligible for this card. You might be able to join the credit union if you’re a current or former military service member, a civilian currently or formerly employed by the military, or a family member of a Navy Federal member.
