You can transfer the credit balance outstanding on another Bank credit card to your ICICI Bank credit card at an attractively low rate of interest. With this facility, you can save a lot of money on the interest paid out on the credit card and can consolidate the outstanding balance available on your credit cards.
In order to avail the ICICI Bank Balance Transfer facility, all you have to do is contact the ICICI Bank customer care or send an SMS to 5676766 with the message “BT”. The customer care will then contact you on the mobile number registered with the Bank.
In order to proceed with the Balance Transfer, you have to follow any of the two methods given below:
There are two types of repayment option for the credit amount that has been transferred. This has to be chosen at the time of availing the Balance Transfer facility
Under the EMI Balance Transfer facility, the cardholder has to repay the principal + interest in Equated Monthly Instalments. The EMI that has to be paid in a particular month will be reflected in the credit card statement issued by ICICI Bank. The cardholder can authorize the bank to debit the card account automatically, on a monthly basis. Once the payment is made, the credit limit available on the card will be reinstated accordingly. The EMI amount will be added to the prevailing Minimum Amount Due on the ICICI Bank credit Card.
Under this method of repayment, the amount that has been transferred from other Bank credit cards will be added to the EMI amount due or the Total Amount Due on the ICICI Bank credit card. The repayment has to be made as the total amount due. The outstanding amount that has been transferred will be charged at the special interest rate quoted by the Bank for Balance Transfer. Other charges and fees on transactions will have the same interest that is applicable by the Bank on the date of transaction. If the ICICI credit card holder has not repaid the transferred amount within the period specified, then standard rate of interest is applicable on the outstanding amount.
