 Find out how to transfer a balance to the Black credit card

Approval for a balance transfer is available once your application has been accepted.  The amount that we can process will depend on the allocated credit limit. If your credit limit is insufficient to process all of your requests, we will action them in the order in which you have provided them to us. You may not transfer the balance from another Ulster Bank credit card. We may end any introductory offer, including any balance transfer offer, if you do not pay on time or stay within your credit limit.
