The MoneyMe Freestyle Virtual Mastercard Credit Account is a virtual card that lives on your smartphone, which provides you with instant access to up to $20,000 once approved.
All you have to do is ‘Tap n Pay’ using the virtual card that’s on your mobile phone either in-store, online, or to send money straight to your bank.
Yes. Unlike a standard personal loan which you’d pay back over a set term - a line of credit gives you access to credit when you need it, so long as it’s within your credit limit.
When you reach your credit limit, you’ll need to repay the amount. Once you’ve repaid the amount you borrowed, it essentially ‘resets’, so the cash becomes available again for you to use without having to re-apply.
Can anyone get a line of credit? Applying for a line of credit generally requires similar qualifications to what you’d need if you were applying for a personal loan or credit card. You must be a resident of Australia that’s currently working and over the age of 18 to be eligible to apply.
On top of this, your creditworthiness (your income, credit history and overall financial wellbeing) will also be taken into consideration when the lender assesses your application.
With the MoneyMe Freestyle Virtual Credit Account, customers can borrow amounts from as little as $1,000 to as much as $20,000.
Some of the features that MoneyMe Freestyle Virtual Mastercard comes with are:
Up to 55 days interest-free on purchases
The ability to pay via Google and Apple Pay
The ability to transfer funds into any bank account from any bank you’re transferring to (16.99% cash advance fee applies).
Annual fees dependant on your credit limit.
