Auto Balance Conversion

  • Auto Balance Conversion

Overview

The Auto Balance Conversion (ABC) programme is aimed at helping eligible customers pay off their outstanding credit card balances in a shorter period at a lower rate. This will reduce the overall interest to customers.

It is also designed to promote prudent financial management among consumers, i.e. spending within your means and paying your credit card debt faster.

 

Key Features

  • Eligible customer will be given advanced notice prior to being enrolled into the programme.

  • Your credit card outstanding balances will be automatically converted into 36 monthly instalments upon meeting the eligibility criteria

  • Outstanding balances will be converted at 13%p.a. (effective interest rate)

  • Minimum convertible amount is RM1,000

  • Please note that the amount converted will be booked on your existing credit card limit. Each monthly instalment you pay will incrementally restore your available credit limit or in full once the Auto Balance Conversion is fully repaid.

 

Benefit

  1. Lower rate @ 13% p.a. versus 15% - 18% p.a. credit card finance charge

  2. Hassle-free conversion - your outstanding statement balances will be converted upon meeting eligibility criteria (annual assessment)

  3. No processing fee on the conversion

  4. No termination fee - flexibility to early settle your instalment plan with no additional fee

  5. Flexibility to opt-out from each conversion offer
