Egg Credit Card Balance Transfer To Current Account Help??

Hi,

I've applied for a Egg Credit Card with 0% interest till june 2011 (3% fee for balance transfer).

If i wanted to transfer money from the Egg card to my current account, how would i go about doing this? I'd have no money on the Egg card, just wanting to borrow some money for a short time and pay it back via direct debit.

It's not a huge amount, £600 tops so the 3% isn't going to kill me.

Thanks

  • I'm a bit confused though as various websites have told me and directed me to the egg card, saying its a super balance transfer card but others on here ive read that the egg money world credit card can only do this?? Can i do it on the normal Egg Card as many websites have suggested.

    Wont let me post links but if you search google for "super balance transfer cards" and click on credit card comparison thats one of the websites.

    thanks

    On the Egg website they call it a convenient balance transfer - http://new.egg.com/visitor/0,,3_11081--View_1766,00.html - highlighted in red the bit you're looking for
    Convenient balance transfers You can transfer balances online at any time from existing credit or store cards, loans or overdrafts, or balances that your second cardholder has elsewhere. A handling fee of 3% will be applied to balance transfers made in your introductory balance transfer period (except where we tell you otherwise).

    Hope it wasn't very recently? The Egg card offering generally rolls over on the first of the month, ie it'll probably be 0% until July 2011 (or better) come Saturday.

    I have the standard Egg credit card and it is possible to transfer money to your current account. I did it a few months back. Once you've finished all the authorisation stuff you can log in and use the transfer balance button. I managed it so it must have been reasonably straight forward
