What if I am not able to pay my monthly payments in full?
Your contracted monthly installment amount for balance transfer will be calculated in full as part of your minimum monthly payment.
For example, if your balance transfer amount is RM 150 and your monthly credit card statement is RM300, you need to pay RM150 balance transfer amount in full in case you want to make a minimum monthly payment of your credit card.
Otherwise, the tiered interest / management fee between 15% p.a. to 18% p.a. will be levied on the outstanding balance transfer amount that is not paid in full.
How about if I make a late repayment?
On top of being charged with a steep finance charge of 18% p.a., you'll also be penalized for doing this. The late payment penalty will be incurred on the total outstanding balance is 1% or RM 10, whichever is higher. The maximum charges will be capped at RM 100.
Can I settle the outstanding balance before maturity?
Yes, but unfortunately, you will have to pay an early settlement penalty of RM 100 (for PB Credit Cards only).
Is this balance transfer plan open to supplementary card holders?
