Citi branded home loan and deposit accounts will be transferring to NAB branded accounts on 24 February 2024. Citi credit card and personal lending accounts will remain unaffected, and you can continue to use your account as normal.
A Balance Transfer is when you move an outstanding amount you owe, called a balance, from a credit card or a personal loan over to another account. The account you move the balance over to, should have no or a low interest rate for a promotional period. If you pay off the balance in full before the Balance Transfer promotional period ends, then this can result in you paying less in interest and saving you money.
