TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE CITI BALANCE TRANSFER FACILITY
In these Terms and Conditions of the Citi Balance Transfer Facility ("Terms and Conditions"), "Card" means all credit cards issued by us, Citibank, N.A. (Philippine Branch) (also referred to as "we", "our", or "us"), while "you" refers to the select Citi principal Cardholders who are of good credit standing and who are eligible to avail of Citi Balance Transfer. By availing of Citi Balance Transfer, you agree to the following Terms and Conditions, and all applicable terms and conditions under the Citi Card Agreement and all related provisions of the Citi Installment Facilities:
Citi Balance Transfer (BT) is an installment facility where select Citi Cardholders of good credit standing who qualify for Citi Balance Transfer may apply to transfer to his Card his outstanding credit card balances with other banks and pay the same, together with applicable interest and other fees, on installment basis ("Installment Transaction"). To avail, you must be the principal cardholder of the Citi Card account and of the credit card account with the other bank or card company, and your account/s with Citi and with the other bank/s or card company/ies must be in good credit standing.
The Balance Transfer request will be subject to verification and credit approval by us. The approved total Balance Transfer Amount must not exceed the total amount due with the other credit card company and the unused portion of your Citi Card Relationship Limit or Account Credit Limit, as applicable. We may at our option require a minimum availment amount for Balance Transfer.
Where we approve a request for Citi Balance Transfer, the total Balance Transfer Amount ("Principal Amount") shall be subject to these Terms and Conditions and all applicable terms and conditions under the Citi Card Agreement ("Cards T&C") and all related provisions of the Citi Installment Facilities.
You should continue to pay the required amount due on your other credit card/s until our payment is reflected in your other credit card's/s'statement/s of account/s. We will not be liable for any interest, penalty, or any other charges on your other card in case you fail to do so.
You warrant that the amount/s transferred from the other credit card account/s is/are free of claims and is/are not subject to any dispute. Once the Citi Balance Transfer application is approved, we can no longer reverse the Balance Transfer transaction.
The monthly installment due of your Balance Transfer transaction (the "Monthly Installment Due") is included in the Minimum Amount Due in yourStatement of Account until the total Principal Amountand the applicable interest rate are paid in full.
You may compute the Monthly Installment Due by using the following formula:Principal Amount x [1+(Converted Monthly Factor Rate x Term)]
Where Term is the number of months that you will be paying for the Principal Amount and applicable interest.
The Monthly Installment Due comprises interest and principal components and is computed on a diminishing balance basis. The interest and principal components of the Monthly Installment Due vary each month and are computed as follows:
• Interest component:
Prior month's outstanding principal balance x monthly Effective Interest Rate (EIR). where monthly EIR =
(1 + Annual EIR)1/12 - 1
• Principal portion:
Monthly Installment Due - interest component for the month.
You agree to pay us interest on the Principal Amount on the dates specified in your Statement of Account at the applicable converted monthly factor rate with a corresponding effective interest rate per annum based on the outstanding principal balance and the Term as follows:
NOTE: THE EFFECTIVE INTEREST RATES (EIR) BELOW ARE BASED ON INTEREST COMPUTED ON A FIXED 30-DAY PERIOD PER MONTH. THE ACTUAL EIR MAY BE HIGHER OR LOWER AS THE INTEREST PORTION OF THE FIRST MONTHLY INSTALLMENT DUE IS COMPUTED BASED ON THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF DAYS FROM THE APPROVAL DATE OF THE INSTALLMENT TRANSACTION TO THE STATEMENT DATE, WHICH MAY BE MORE OR LESS THAN 30 DAYS.

*The Converted Monthly Factor Rate is presented as a guide that can be used to derive the Monthly Installment Due (principal plus interest).
**The computation of Annual Effective Interest rate includes a Disbursement Fee of P250.
The interest charge on the first Monthly Installment Due is computed based on the number of days from the approval date of the Installment Transaction to the Statement Date, which is the date when your Statement of Account is generated after each billing cycle. The interest on succeeding Monthly Installments Due is computed based on a fixed 30-day period. This will result in the first Monthly Installment Due being different from subsequent ones.
Below is a sample schedule of payment.
If you pay less than the Total Amount Due indicated in your Statement of Account, the unpaid portion of the Monthly Installment Due is subject to the prevailing monthly retail Interest Charge. Interest is compounded monthly. Usual Late Charges also apply.
Furthermore, if the Card account is past due for 60 days or more, the Installment Transaction will be cancelled. Any remaining unpaid balance will be billed to the Card account in full and will be subject to the prevailing monthly retail Interest Charge. Please refer to the Citi Card Fees and Charges for the prevailing rates, fees and charges. This can be viewed at www.citibank.com.ph.
If you wish to cancel an Installment Transaction before its Term ends, you may do so without a prepayment penalty. In that case, you agree to pay in full the unpaid portion of the Principal Amount and the cancellation processing fee equivalent to 4% of the unbilled portion of the Principal Amount. In case of promotions where we give you a premium item/s (which include promotional items, Usage Privileges, etc.), we may charge the full monetary equivalent of the premium item should you cancel the Installment Transaction.
