    Primarily when you apply for a Credit Card Funds Transfer you should get cash disbursed in 15 minutes into your eligible designated account. That said please note that the 0% interest rate is valid for a Credit Card Funds Transfer with a 3, 6, 9 or 12 month tenure and is only applicable to the amount transferred pursuant to the application submitted in respect of the promotion. The prevailing interest rate of 26.9% p.a. applies after the expiration of the tenure indicated in the application form.
