Pool Together Your Debt With An ACU Visa Credit Card Balance Transfer

Woman in pool.

Are you, like many Americans, a victim of…shopping too frequently? You bought from a store one time, and now you’re on the mailing list and in the know about every sale, and every new item that comes through. It’s a sale, so you have to buy it – right? Well, if you’re like me, and thousands of other Americans, those sales add up – and then all of a sudden your credit card bill comes around and your jaw hits the floor. Because, believe me, it definitely all spikes up before you know it.

“Living within your means” is an expression we hear all the time, but have a lot of trouble actually sticking with. Those high interest credit cards from airlines or department stores offer us the promise of a higher quality of life – IF you spend a large amount of money on their card. Sure, 10% off your order is great in the moment – but is it worth spending money you don’t have, just to pay it back later with a 22% interest rate? The answer is no.

And perhaps you’re reading this and you don’t have a shopping problem – but you got trapped in high credit card debt because of medical bills, mechanical issues with your car, or an unexpected pipe explosion in your bathroom. Now you’re feeling a little in over your head, and not sure how to get back to an affordable budget. At Associated Credit Union, we understand! Life happens to the best of us, and we want to help you get back on track.

A great way to start paying down your credit card debt from another issuer is by making the switch to an Associated Credit Union Visa Credit Card during our Balance Transfer promotion for only 4.9% APR for the first 12 months. There is no balance transfer fee, no annual fee, and we won’t shoot your interest rate up to an impossible amount after the first 12 months. We keep our rates affordable from 9.9%-12% APR for our credit card holders, so that things don’t get too hard to manage.

Pool together your debt with ACU through October 31, 2019 to receive the 4.9% APR on balances transferred. And if you’re still looking for a little budgeting guidance after you make the switch – we offer a free service to our members with our Certified Credit Union Financial Counselors. They can set up a time with you in person or over the phone to discuss next steps.

Take the first step today in regaining financial control, and apply for a credit card balance transfer. If you’ve already made the switch and would like to speak to one of our CCU Financial Counselors, visit us here.
