Frequently Asked Questions about Bank of Queensland credit cards

How many interest free days will I get with a Bank of Queensland credit card?

Making the most of your interest free days is one of the best ways to keep your credit card balance under control. With a Bank of Queensland credit card, you’ll have either 55 or 44 days in your interest free period, depending on which card you have. Just remember that these days start at the beginning of your statement cycle, not when you make the purchase.

What fees might I be charged?

First things first, you’ll have to contend with the annual fee attached to your Bank of Queensland credit card. Generally speaking, the more spending and rewards power your card allows you, the higher the annual fee will be. Other fees you should keep an eye out for include cash advance fees when you hit up the ATM and foreign exchange fees. And if you want to have more than one person using the credit account, there’s a fee for additional cards on all but the premium credit card option. 

Can I use my Bank of Queensland credit card for a balance transfer?

Yep. If you’re using your Bank of Queensland credit card to do a balance transfer and manage your credit card balance, you’ll get an initial zero interest period in which to pay off your balance. Just remember that any unpaid balance will then be charged interest at the cash advance rate of your card - which is much higher.

Can I use payWave with my Bank of Queensland credit card?

Definitely! PayWave is a VISA scheme, and your Bank of Queensland credit card works on the VISA network. So you can use your credit card to ‘tap ‘n’ go’ on small purchases.

Can I use my Bank of Queensland credit card while I’m travelling overseas?

Yes! Another good thing about the VISA network, is that it’s available all around the world. And where VISA is accepted, your Bank of Queensland credit card is too!
Just don’t forget to budget for foreign transaction fees in your holiday plans. Otherwise, you can skip the fees by checking out a great prepaid travel card.

What rewards options do I have with my Bank of Queensland rewards credit card?

Bank of Queensland have their own loyalty program, through which you earn Q points. You can redeem these points for heaps of great stuff, including merchandise, gift cards, cashback and travel.

Points caps and earning power is different depending on which rewards card you choose:

Blue Visa Card - earn 1 point for every $1, capped at 65,000 p.a.

Platinum Visa Card - earn 2 points per $1, capped at 240,000 p.a.

But the good news is points never expire, so you can save up for that big overseas holiday!

If you opt for a platinum card, you can also use the complimentary concierge service, which is like having your very own personal assistant to help with things like shopping and snagging event tickets.

What kind of insurance options does my Bank of Queensland credit card offer?

On both a platinum or blue credit card from Bank of Queensland, you’ll enjoy purchase protection and guaranteed pricing when you spend. If you're a platinum cardholder, you’ll also get to cash in on some other cool insurance covers, like complimentary international travel insurance and extended warranty cover.

What can I do to keep my credit card safe?

You should always be aware of the risk of credit card fraud when spending, but don’t let it stop you from taking advantage of the convenience of plastic! Here are a few quick things you can do to keep your credit card safe.

Never write down your PIN number or tell it to anyone else. If you have trouble remembering it and absolutely need to write it down, don’t keep it in the same place as your card.

Be observant when using your card - don’t go to an ATM that looks suspicious or damaged and when you use your card in a shop, keep an eye on it the whole time.

When using your card for online shopping, look for secure websites that you trust

Keep an eye on your statement. If you notice anything unusual or see any transactions you didn’t make, call Bank of Queensland immediately.

Great Bank providing great service

I have dealt with BOQ for many years, whilst living in Brisbane, and overseas. I then found there is a local branch in Launceston, Tasmania and the staff continue to prove there is no problem in providing service of a friendly personal nature.

Pass. I will be going elsewhere.

All their online apps etc never work properly, well behind the times and you don’t see transactions until days after. The app always cuts out and goes blank.
