*APR=Annual Percentage Rate. The Introductory APR for purchases and balance transfers will apply to transactions posted to your account during the 12 months/billing cycles following the issuance of your card. After that, your non-variable APR will be 8.95% to 21.95%, based on your creditworthiness at the time of application. Subject to credit approval. Offer valid for new ECU Platinum Visa accounts only. Must be eligible for membership at Emerald Credit Union. All rates and promotions are subject to change.

Consolidation | Balance Transfers

Credit card consolidation involves paying off your existing high-interest credit card debt with a lower-interest credit card. This saves you money and helps you gain monthly income by offering one manageable monthly payment, lower finance charges, and sometimes a shorter payoff period. If you're feeling overwhelmed by high variable-rates and rising credit card balances, it's time to transfer them to our Platinum Visa. Simply complete the Balance Transfer Request and submit it to a Loan Officer. Not yet an ECU Platinum Visa cardholder? Apply today! Balance transfers may be processed any time, as long as you have enough available credit.

There's never been a better time! You may submit your application online, or print and complete the Application and Solicitation Disclosure, and drop if off at our branch. We'll take it from there and contact you if any additional information is needed.

Line of Credit Increase*

Whether you're looking to increase your line of credit or lower your interest rate, simply complete the Visa Request Form, and drop it off at our branch. We'll take it from there and contact you if any additional information is needed. 

*The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) and line of credit increase you may qualify for is based on your creditworthiness and is subject to credit approval. Not all applicants will qualify. With your request, your APR may decrease based on your credit score, but it will not increase. The maximum line of credit is $20,000. All rates and promotions are subject to change.


To ensure uninterrupted usage of your ECU Platinum Visa while you travel, please contact us prior to your departure date. We will add a “Travel Memo” to your account preventing the Visa Fraud Department from blocking your account due to unusual spending. This is also a great opportunity to update your phone number and email address, in the event that the Fraud Department ever attempts to contact you.

Loans FAQs


Light BulbFinancial Wellness Tip: When possible, pay more than just the required minimum payment amount on your credit card statement. Larger payments will reduce your balance at a faster pace, and you'll pay less in interest. It will also increase your available credit and give you an emergency source of funds.
