Balance Transfers

The special balance transfer interest rate applies to the balance transferred from another bank credit or store card and is available for existing and new Kiwibank customers. Minimum balance transfer amount is $200. This offer is not available on existing Kiwibank Credit Card balances or business credit cards. Transfers are subject to your Kiwibank approved credit limit. If the amount requested to be transferred exceeds your credit limit, Kiwibank may process a lesser amount up to your credit limit. After six months your balance transfer will be treated as a purchase and our standard interest rate for purchases will apply. That rate will also apply to any new purchases you make on your card. If you have more than one balance transfer, payments applied to balance transfers will be applied to the balance transfer with the lowest interest rate first.
