    It normally takes 1 to 2 working days to move your balance across (in some circumstances it can take longer). The transfer may not show up in your next statement depending on when you applied.

    If the transfer was part of a promotional offer, you'll get notifications in your statements before your offer is due to expire. You can also see your interest rate, offer duration and offer expiry date in the ‘interest summary’ table on your statement.

You can transfer a balance at any time and there's no limit on how many balances you can transfer. Just remember that you can't transfer a balance that would be more than 95% of your available credit limit. Always make sure you maintain payments on existing cards until the balance transfer is complete, otherwise you may be charged a missed payment fee.

Unlike some credit card providers, at Nationwide your offer period will start from the day the balance was transferred to your account, not the day you applied. That means that you won’t miss out on part of your offer period.
