  • $0 annual fee

    • Be aware that there is a 1% fee on the amount transferred (min $7.50). Which makes any balance transfers the same as having a 1.2% APR with zero admin fees. Also, that fee is an upfront "interest" charge for 10 months use of money. If you transfer less than $750, then the % is even higher due to the minimum fee of $7.50.

      When we get a report back from MBNA with your approval we will post the funds into your Cash Back online account (See http://www.redflagdeals.com/cashback/account/). This may take up to 5 weeks.

      Once there you will have enough to receive the funds on the next quarterly payout. For more information please see our FAQ here: http://www.redflagdeals.com/cashback/faq/

      NOTE: We will be launching the ability to choose and enter in your payment information very soon. Stay tuned!

      I don't really understand this- can you explain further? So the balance transfer will cost me money upfront?

      Yes. You'll be charged the balance transfer amount along with a 1% fee (minimum of $7.50).

      In my case I did a balance transfer of $1000. It showed up as a $1000 balance transfer and another $10 charge appeared on my statement for the fees.

      In the case of something like a $500 transfer, you'll be charged $7.50 in fees, as it's the minimum.

      Suppose you have a credit limit of 10,000

      The max that you can withdraw is 9,901 (taking out any more will lead to an over-drawn balance = extra fees)
      They will charge your account 9,901 + 99 (1%) = 10,000. Then, over the course of 10 months, you can make the minimum repayment which is 1% of the outstanding balance.
