Terms & Conditions

1% cashback offer available for balance transfers of $500 or more from other credit card companies, financial institutions, or department store credit cards. Balance transfers may not be made to make payments toward amounts you owe Ideal Credit Union. 1% cashback offer is only valid for balance transfers completed February 1 through March 15, 2021. To the extent your payments exceed the minimum payment due each billing period, we will apply them to balances with higher rates prior to balances with lower rates. There is no grace period on cash advances or balance transfers. Amounts transferred are subject to your available credit limit. We are not required to honor a balance transfer request that will cause you to exceed your available credit limit. By requesting a balance transfer, you authorize Ideal CU to process a balance transfer charged to your Ideal CU Visa Credit Card (no balance transfer fee during promotional period. Afterwards, balance transfer fees are 2% of the transfer total or $10.00 minimum, $75.00 maximum. After the advance, your 1% cashback incentive will be deposited into your Ideal CU Share Savings Account. You also acknowledge that Ideal CU will send you a check payable to the creditor you provided in your request and that you are responsible for sending the check to the appropriate creditor. Ideal CU is not responsible for any remaining balance on that account or for any finance or other charges you incur due to delays in transferring a balance. Balance transfers made payable to you, cash or to make payments toward amounts you owe Ideal Credit Union are not eligible for this promotion. You should continue to make all required payments until you confirm that the balance transfer was made. To avoid paying interest on new purchases, you must pay your entire balance (including any balance accrued during the promotional period) each month by the due date. We will not close your other accounts even if you transfer the entire balance. If you wish to close another account, you should contact the issuer directly. Each balance transfer will be treated as a cash advance as described in your Credit Card Agreement, will begin to accrue finance charges from the date it is posted to your account, and is subject to credit availability. If you have not activated your credit card, please call 1-800-527-7728 to do so prior to requesting a balance transfer.
