Each new year is an opportunity to start fresh. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean we get to hit the reset button on our finances. As we move forward and set goals for ourselves, it is important to have a plan that accounts for the past, present and future — especially after a year as challenging as 2020.
Whether you’re working to rebuild your savings after a global pandemic disrupted your plans or you racked up a high balance on a credit card over the holidays, VyStar can help. Not only are we offering Skip-A-Payment options to help you free up your short-term cash flow, we’re also giving you the opportunity to transfer an external credit card balance at 0% APR* for 12 months.
If you have a credit card balance that just seems to keep building, this may be the deal for you.
Until March 31, we’re offering 0% APR for 12 months to new and existing members who transfer a balance from a non-VyStar card to a VyStar Visa® Credit Card. That means you’ll have more time to pay off the balance you carry over — and you’ll pay less interest in the long term. If you have multiple external credit cards (store credit cards included!), you can consolidate it all to your VyStar card to take advantage of 0% APR. And while most financial institutions charge fees for balance transfers — with us, they’re free.
This offer is available to new members and existing members with a VyStar credit card. If you already have a credit card with us, all you have to do is transfer a balance from a non-VyStar card to your VyStar credit card to start saving. If you’re a new member, just apply for a credit card within 60 days of opening your account and transfer a balance from another credit card to get 0% APR for 12 months.
The only thing better than having more freedom and flexibility to pay off your credit card balance is benefitting from the multiple perks that come with a VyStar credit card, including:
