    Jonathon my question was – what is the rate of interest charge on a balance transfer to my existing Commonwealth credit card. It is usually around 5% – what is it at the moment. I am not asking about a new card.

      Hi Janet, thanks for your response.

      To allow me to assist you further may I ask which Commonwealth Credit Card you are using? You can also contact CBA directly to inquire about your current account.

      Hi Janet, thanks for your inquiry!

      The balance transfer rate depends on the specific credit card you are applying for. We have provided the balance transfer rates in the comparison table available on this page.

    I’ve had my Commonwealth credit card since September 2011. To date, I have an available balance of $22,172.52 (credit limit is $22,500). I am avoiding interest charges as it is very high, 19.74% p.a.
    Six (6) months ago, I took a 12-month 0% balance transfer from ANZ to pay off my debts. I’ve been paying a lot more than the required repayments. ANZ must’ve recognized that and just this January, offered me to use my credit with them to take another balance transfer to any credit card I’d like to pay off at 0% interest for 18 months. I find that very useful.
    The best offer I get from CBA is a personal loan for 13.90%.
    Can CBA offer me what I have been offered by ANZ or any offer close to what ANZ is offering? I wish CBA would.

      In terms of matching a competitive offer the best approach would be to contact the bank directly.

    I am a current Commonwealth Bank credit card holder. Can I transfer balances from my other cards to the Commonwealth Bank card? What is the interest rate? Other banks are offering zero percent for 12 months.

      Hi, Lyle.

      Thanks for your question.

      If you’re looking to transfer a balance to an existing credit card account, you will need to contact your financial provider directly. Banks and lenders do make balance transfer offers available to their existing customers from time to time, however, generally speaking, the really competitive offers are reserved for new customers. To be eligible for a balance transfer, you must transfer from a from a non-Commonwealth bank credit card, store card or charge card.

      You can compare balance transfer credit cards on this page.

      I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    My credit balance is $14570. I want to get this and transfer this money. I want to know how much I have to pay for monthly and after 5 months, how much will I have to pay? I have no idea.

      Hi Iasc. Thanks for your question. Have a look at this page for information on what interest rate you will get charged after the balance transfer promotional period. Please check the table at the top of the card’s review page for information on the minimum monthly repayment. You must pay a certain percentage of balance each month to stop your account from going into arrears. I hope this has helped. Email us again if you need more information on repayments. Jacob.
