What happens if I fail to make repayment before the monthly due date?
In this case, your credit card will be charged daily interest of 18% p.a. (or 1.5% per month) on the unpaid minimum monthly amount due.
On the other hand, if you fail to settle your outstanding balance in full before the end of the repayment period, 18% p.a. interest will be imposed on the outstanding balance.
Can I settle my credit card debts early?
Yes, you can. There is no early settlement fee for this balance transfer plan!
