Key Things to Know About a BankAmericard credit card Balance Transfer
The BankAmericard credit card card accepts balance transfers from other credit cards, along with retail or department store cards, gas cards, and other personal lines of credit. The BankAmericard credit card card does not allow balance transfers from other Bank of America credit accounts.
If you're transferring a balance to a credit card with an introductory APR on balance transfers, try to pay off the balance before the introductory rate expires. Any balance remaining after that will accumulate interest daily at the card's regular APR. Using a balance transfer calculator can be a big help.
Finally, there is a 3% (min $10) fee on BankAmericard credit card balance transfers. Make sure to take this into account, too.
