Balance transfer from partners card

Posted by geckonet geckonet

My husband and I would like to consolidate debt onto his card. Is it possible to do a balance transfer from my other financial institution to his card?

Can I become an additional card holder on his card?

How much % of his limit can we transfer up to?

How do we do this? Do we have to go into a branch?

Hi @geckonet, thanks for getting in touch.

Balance transfers can only be processed if the credit card with the other bank is in the same name as the Bankwest credit card I'm sorry.

You can certainly become an additional card holder to your husbands account. To have this done, he will need to give us a buzz on 13 17 19 or have a chat with our Messaging Team by clicking the 'Message us now' button (when logged into the app) at anytime.

If the other banks credit card was in your husbands name, we can transfer up to 95% of the available balance of the Bankwest card. Our Contact Centre can process this by calling the number above.
