San Diego County Credit Union Offers New Mobile Banking App For Transferring Credit Card Balances Using Your Mobile Phone

Stocks in this article: MITK

SAN DIEGO, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego's largest locally-owned financial institution, has announced a new capability to its mobile technology for SDCCU customers using Androidâ„¢ or iPhone ® mobile devices. SDCCU's new Easy Balance Transfer app makes it possible for SDCCU Visa credit cardholders, using their mobile phones, to transfer their credit card accounts from other financial institutions to an attractive, low-rate SDCCU Visa ® credit card. SDCCU reports it is one of the first institutions in the nation to offer this innovative, cutting-edge mobile technology from mobile imaging company Mitek Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ: MITK) whose technology also enables SDCCU Mobile Deposit, the organization's mobile check deposit service.

SDCCU's new Easy Balance Transfer app is available from either iTunes ® or Google Play ®. Here's how it works: SDCCU Visa credit cardholders can simply use their online banking username and password to log into the Easy Balance Transfer App and then use the app to take a photo of the bottom payment stub from a credit card bill from another financial institution. The app will read the company's name, address and payment amount. Then, the SDCCU customer, after reviewing the card information, can click "submit" to conveniently process the balance transfer.

"SDCCU customers don't need to remain burdened with a large credit card balance at a big bank when a credit card balance transfer is so quick, easy and secure using your mobile phone," said San Diego County Credit Union President & CEO Teresa Halleck. "This new app is just another way SDCCU is providing a better banking experience to our customers on the go."

"The ability to snap a photo of a credit card statement with a smartphone to shop for a better credit card offer is a win-win for both San Diego County Credit Union and their customers," said Mitek President and CEO, James DeBello. "SDCCU is offering an easy, engaging and paperless approach to acquire new credit card balances through the mobile channel."

San Diego County Credit Union is San Diego's largest locally-owned financial institution serving San Diego, Riverside and Orange counties. SDCCU has assets of $6.2 billion, more than 246,000 customers, 31 convenient branch locations and 30,000 surcharge-FREE ATMs. From FREE Checking with eStatements and SDCCU Mobile Deposit, to home and auto loans, Visa credit cards, money market accounts and business banking services, including commercial real estate loans; SDCCU provides breakthrough banking products that meet the demands of today's lifestyle and delivers banking services that save customers money.
