Balance Transfer Cards Are Harder to Get Due to COVID-19. Can You Qualify?

Paying off debt is easier with balance transfer offers, but they might be running out.

In times of economic uncertainty, lending becomes riskier and creditors tighten their purse strings. The current recession, announced by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) just months after the COVID-19 outbreak was declared a global pandemic, is no different.

While we haven’t seen massive shifts in lending yet, there have been notable changes. In particular, credit card issuers seem to be pulling back on balance transfer promotions. Some popular credit cards have dropped their balance transfer offers altogether, and many of the best balance transfer offers have shortened promotional periods. Meanwhile, standards to qualify for a balance transfer offer are rising.

If you’re facing an outstanding balance on your credit card and think a balance transfer to pay off debt could help, you might not be out of luck. Here’s what you need to

Komphela believes money has influenced Mamelodi Sundowns’ transfer business

Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela says Mamelodi Sundowns’ financial muscle has given Pitso Mosimane an edge over other Premier Soccer League (PSL) coaches in the transfer market as he started his business earlier than most clubs.

Downs’ seriousness in building a strong squad for next season was shown in March when George Maluleka signed a pre-contract with them after turning down a new deal at Kaizer Chiefs.

Soon after Maluleka was announced as a Sundowns player in July, the Brazilians went on to sign Lesedi Kapinga from Black Leopards and ex-Ajax Cape Town midfielder Grant Margeman.

Just as the season ended, the former Bidvest Wits duo of goalkeeper Ricardo Goss and midfielder Haashim Domingo, as well as the ex-Highlands Park pair of Mothobi Mvala and Peter Shalulile, arrived at Chloorkop.

“It’s not easy in the transfers. It’s helluva difficult,” said Komphela as per Sun Sport.

“I think Mamelodi Sundowns have

Villa’s summer transfer business was necessary

John Terry admits Aston Villa needed to spend if they wanted to progress this season.

The assistant head coach knows their summer spree was vital after they beat relegation by a point last season.

Bertrand Traore scored on his debut as Villa beat Bristol City 3-0 in the Carabao Cup on Thursday following his £17million arrival from Lyon.

Villa also spent a club record £28million to sign Ollie Watkins from Brentford – allowing them to let Ally Samatta leave for Fenerbache on Friday – and £16million on Nottingham Forest’s Matt Cash.

“After the way we stayed up last year it was important, and I think the manager recognised it over the summer as well,” said Terry.

“With Johan (Lange, sporting director) coming in the building and Christian Purslow (chief executive) and the two owners doing some fantastic work early on we managed to get some really important players in the
