1. Credit Card

With a KBC credit card you can get 0% interest on balance transfers for the first 6 months when you transfer your existing credit card balance to us.* In addition, there is a 1% cash reward on your grocery and online purchases, so you do the shopping and we’ll do the rewards!**

*To avail of the 0% interest balance transfer offer you must close your existing account and provide the account closure letter to us in within 90 days. If we do not receive an account closure letter from your existing bank you will lose the reduced interest rate. We may also close the account without notice. At the end of this 6 month period, the interest rate will revert to the standard interest rate applicable at the time.

**The reward will be credited to your account in your next monthly statement. To be eligible for the grocery reward, the retailer must be categorised under a “grocery” merchant category code with MasterCard. The reward is applicable up to a maximum value of €10 per month or €120 a year.
