Get help with balance transfers

A balance transfer is the transfer of debt from one account to another at a different financial institution.

Convenience checks are used just like any other check; however, funds written from these checks will go towards your credit card balance. You can use them to:

  • Transfer balances from high rate credit cards to your DuPage Credit Union credit card.
  • Make large purchases such as repairs or any unexpected costs.
  • Write yourself a check and deposit the funds into your checking account.

Before you use them, make sure you have enough available credit for the transaction(s), interest, and any related fees.

There are two ways you can transfer your balances:

    1. Through Online Banking. To transfer your balances through Online Banking, log in and select the credit card you would like to transfer balances to. Then, click on the Balance Transfer icon to get started.
    2. With a Balance Transfer Form. Fill out this short Balance Transfer Form to get started.
