Frequently Asked Questions about BankSA credit cards

How many interest free days will I get with a BankSA credit card?

Knowing how to use your interest free days can save you a bundle on credit card interest. With a BankSA credit card, you’ll have 55 days to pay off your balance before being charged interest. But keep in mind, these 55 days start at the beginning of your statement cycle, and not when you make a purchase. 

What fees might I be charged?

There are a few guaranteed fees you should plan for when using a BankSA credit card for your spending. These include:

The annual fee (on all cards except the no annual fee option, surprisingly enough.)

Cash advance fees

Foreign exchange fees

Can I use my BankSA credit card for a balance transfer?

Need to manage an existing credit card balance? A balance transfer deal could be just the thing you need to keep your spending on track and get rid of lingering credit card debts.

You can use any BankSA credit card for a balance transfer, although keep in mind that different cards offer different 0% interest periods. That’s important, because when this period runs out, you’ll be charged interest on any remaining balance at the much higher cash advance rate. So make sure that you know how long you have to pay off your transferred balance and have a plan in place to pay back everything you owe in the allotted time. 

Can I use paypass with my BankSA credit card?

All the BankSA credit card offerings run on the VISA network, which means for small shops under $100, you can use payWave to make contactless payments.

Can I use my BankSA credit card while I’m travelling overseas?

Another good thing about your BankSA credit card running on the VISA network is that it’s accepted wherever in the world VISA is - so pretty much anywhere. Just keep in mind the foreign transaction fees before you go shopping up a storm.

If you’re opting for a platinum or signature card, don’t forget to check out your complimentary credit card travel insurance as well!

What rewards options do I have with my BankSA rewards credit card?

You can choose between a rewards card, so you can redeem points for a bunch of cool things like retail products, gift vouchers and travel through the BankSA Amplify Rewards Program, or a Qantas card, which will convert your rewards points straight into your Qantas frequent flyers account.

Check out the table below to see how many points you’ll earn per $1 you spend on each rewards card on offer:
