Well although electronic most times, might want to give it more than 5 business days!

Make sure to make your payments if you are due within the next week.

You will probably see the balance show up on new card before you see the payment clear.

My BT wasn't through Chase, but I did one through Discover when I got approved for their IT card. It took about 4 weeks or equivalent to one statement before the BT cleared. It'll probably take around the same time for you.

 

Make sure you call the creditor to ensure that they actually received the BT payment from Chase . If you have any minimum payments that are due this month from the creditor(s) whose balance you are transferring over to Chase, make sure to just pay that so you don't risk missing the due date and get a 30 day late on your CR. If you overpay, they will usually refund you the overpayment.

Re: Balance Transfer time

Will you accrue interest on the BT? No, Chase won't start charging you interest until after your 0% APR promo expires. That is, if you have got a 0% promo offer when you got approved for your card.

 

If you are talking about your Cap1 account, then it depends on when your statement cuts. If your BT doesn't clear and your statement closes and you carry a balance over to your next statement period, then Cap1 will charge you interest.

Re: Balance Transfer time

I was talking about Cap1 yes. Thanks for the answer!

 

So this statement balance is 7.37 I paid on the due date 7.37. The min amt due by 4/9 is 0.00 what my Cap1 says. I have a balance of 400.00 I am transferring 300 to Chase Freedom and scheduled a payment for 4/9 of 100.00. The BT will not process by 4/9 so I will accure interest on a balance of 300 ?

Do you know when your statement closes? If you look at your statement, it will tell you the start and end date of your billing cycle. If you carry that $300 over to your next statement period, then yes they will charge you interest.

Re: Balance Transfer time

yes you might accrue residual interests so make sure you keep checking your capitalone statements even after the account is closed.
