it needs saying again
No balance transfer fees.
A balance transfer is a type of credit card transaction in which debt is moved from one account to another. For example, moving the debt on a higher-interest credit card to a lower-interest credit card, which can save you money.
With a U First Visa® credit card, there is no balance transfer fee and 6-month introductory rate applies to balance transfers. Why is that important enough to state twice? Well, the benefits of consolidating debt include:
- multiple payments become one convenient payment
- eliminates higher interest rate debt, saving you money
- reduces the risk of late payments
- may improve your credit score
By moving those balances to United, you’ll only have to make one low monthly payment. Reducing your interest rate through consolidation allows you to pay more toward the principal balance each month.
If better terms and a lower rate sound good to you, call us at (888) 982-1400 or stop by a branch and we’ll help you get started.

A: A cash advance is borrowing "cash" from your credit card. It is a short-term cash loan that you can access at a United branch or ATM. It's like withdrawing money from the ATM with your debit card, except the cash comes from your credit limit rather than your bank account balance. That means you have to pay it back with interest. Cash advances are more risky for a bank or credit union to loan out versus using your credit card to purchase an item. Because of this, cash advances don't have a grace period, meaning interest begins accruing on the balance as soon as the transaction is completed.
A: Cash advance interest is accrued from the date of advancement, regardless of when the advance is paid off, whereas purchase interest is not charged if the purchase is paid off within the statement cycle. Because the way each interest is determined is done differently, they are shown as two separate interest charges on the credit card statement.
A: Debt protection is an optional product that helps relieve the financial stress and worry related to making loan payments in the event of death, disability, and/or involuntary unemployment. This protection cancels a borrower's remaining loan balance in the event of death and loan payment(s) for a specific amount of time per occurrence in the event of the rest.
A: Cash advances do not qualify for the promotional lower APR for the first 6 months.
A: U First Visa® is not a rewards card. If you are looking for a card that earns points and rewards, try U Rewards Visa® Signature Credit Card from United.
