Balance Transfer

A balance transfer could help you save money on your existing credit card debt. It can also help you pay down your credit card debt faster. With a Visa credit card from the University of Nebraska Federal Credit Union you can do both - save money and pay off your debt faster. Unique to our credit card, there is NO FEE for a balance transfer and you'll pay the same low rate as you do on purchases.

In addition to saving you money, we can also save you time. We make it easy to transfer a balance. If you have an NUFCU Visa credit card, you can transfer funds to your checking account, request Visa Checks or do an advance in person to pay off your debt with another credit card or store card provider.

Balance Transfers Using Digital Banking

If you have a high rate credit card or store card, now is the time to transfer that balance to a low rate card from NUFCU. Transferring a balance is easy through our online banking product. Essentially you will transfer the money from your credit card to your checking account. NUFCU doesn't charge a balance transfer fee and we offer the same low rate for a cash advance and a purchase. Once you have transferred the necessary money to your checking account, you just need to either send a check to your credit card to pay the balance or use our bill pay to make the payment. See the instructions below. If you have questions please call us at 402.472.2087 or email us at

Balance Transfers Using a Visa Convenience Check

At your request we will provide you with a Visa convenience check as a way to access your credit line without swiping your card. We have no additional fees or interest rates when you use the Visa check. This is a convenient way to pay off high rate credit cards or department store cards. Those balances can be brought over to NUFCU and potentially be charged at a lower rate. Click here to request a check.
