Balance Transfer

A balance transfer is a way to move credit card debt from one credit card to another to save money on interest. When you transfer your balance(s) to a Cedar Point credit card, you can consolidate your debt, while also accessing a lower, fixed rate. Lower rates can help you save money on your monthly payments and help you pay off your debt sooner. Plus, there is no balance transfer fee.


Here's an example of what your monthly interest savings might look like if you transfer your balances to Cedar Point.

  Before a Balance Transfer After
CARD Citi Kohl's Capital One TOTAL CEDAR POINT
BALANCE $1500 $1000 $1000 $3500 $3500
APR* 15.49% 21.90% 15.74% 17.39%** 7.00%
MONTHLY PAYMENT $36 $28 $24 $88 $70

 In the scenario above, your monthly payment would be reduced by $18. And you'd be saving over $30 on interest alone. Over time, those savings really add up.

Do the Math

If you carry a balance, with an APR between 15 – 20%, almost half of every minimum payment made is consumed by interest charges. With over 20% APR, that becomes nearly two-thirds of your minimum payment. The example below reflects a $1000 balance.

If your minimum payment is $25 on your $1000 balance:

  • At 15% APR, you will pay $12.50 of the $25.00 in interest alone. Exactly half of your minimum payment is committed to paying off accrued interest.
  • At 20% APR, you will pay $16.67 of the $25.00 in interest. Here, you'll only be paying down $8.33 of principal.
  • At 22% APR (which is a common APR for many reward credit cards), you'll be paying $18.33 in interest charges.

With a rate as low as 7% from Cedar Point, you would be paying more toward the principal to help you decrease your debt faster.
