Could a Balance Transfer Work for You?
How to save money with a balance transfer
As you navigate your monthly finances and do your best to budget each week, sometimes you need some help. Getting a loan can be difficult, and you don’t want to take on more debt. One solution could be a balance transfer.
A balance transfer typically involves consolidating your credit card payments. You may own one or more credit cards and have, over time, charged up balances on them. There may be multiple interest rates on the cards, and you may be feeling overwhelmed with trying to make sure all the payments are met each month.
A balance transfer from FCCU could elevate some of that stress.
