Transfer Your Debt to a Low-Rate Credit Card

If you have existing credit cards with balances, consolidating them onto one card or simply transferring one card’s balance to a GTE credit card with a lower rate can save you money and bring you closer to financial freedom. A balance transfer with GTE works by paying off your existing credit cards and moving the balance on to a credit card with a lower rate. This saves you interest over time, which means you pay less interest on your debt! 

Benefits

Lowering your interest rate through a balance transfer can save you a lot of money in the long term, and get you out of debt quicker!

GTE offers multiple credit cards with great rates and benefits. If you don’t currently have a credit card with GTE, the GTE Go To card has an extremely low rate, and an introductory offer to go with it. All balances transferred in the first 60 days, will have 0% APR for the first 12 months of your card. Financial freedom is finally at your fingertips!

Combine all of your credit card payments into one payment.
