Take the Credit Card Challenge

Learn how much you can save!

To help the Chester County Community learn more about how much interest rates affect the total amount paid when paying down debt, Benchmark FCU is introducing the Credit Card Challenge! Follow the steps below to access our Credit Card Payoff Calculator to see how much you can save by transferring high-interest balances to a Benchmark VISA Platinum Credit Card and be eligible to receive a $50 cash bonus**. Are you up for the challenge?

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Tap the link above to access our Credit Card Payoff Calculator and enter your current balance, monthly payment amount, and current interest rate to learn how long it will take to pay off your current debt, as well as how much you’ll pay in interest.
  2. Next, see how much you’d save with Benchmark’s VISA Platinum rate as low as 9.90%*. But first, multiply your monthly payment by 12 and subtract that number from your balance. Why? Because Benchmark’s VISA Platinum Credit Card features 0% APR* for 12 months!
  3. Apply and be approved for a new Benchmark VISA Platinum then transfer high-interest balances from other institutions and within 60 days receive a $50 cash bonus** deposited into your Benchmark account.

Take a look at the comparison chart below using the average credit card rate in America as of 2/7/2023 and Benchmark’s VISA Platinum Credit Card rate as low as 9.90% APR.* In this example, the consumer was able to pay their balance down to $4,400 during the 12-month 0%* interest period, only paying $307 in interest over the next 16 months while paying off the remainder of their debt. This is compared to paying $3,393 in interest over 38 months without transferring the balance to Benchmark.
