Frequently Asked Questions about P&N Bank credit cards

What is the interest free period on my P&N Bank credit card?

Once you rack up a balance on your P&N Bank credit card, you’ll have up to 45 days to pay it off before it starts to attract interest. Keep in mind that this interest free period begins at the start of your statement cycle - usually the beginning of the month - and not when you make a purchase. So if you hit the shops halfway through your statement cycle, you’ll have less than 45 days before the interest starts building up.

It’s also important to remember that if you don’t pay off your credit card balance in full each month, you’ll usually forfeit the next month’s interest free days.

What fees might I be charged?

The major credit card fees you'll have to consider in your spending budget when using your P&N Bank credit card include the annual fee - which is pretty low - plus fees for when you hit the ATM and a foreign exchange margin for when you’re shopping overseas.

One thing to keep in mind when you’re travelling, is that there is a fee for an overseas emergency replacement card - whether or not you’re approved for the replacement. So be careful of pickpockets when you travel with a P&N Bank credit card.

There are a few extra conditional fees that may apply, like late fees, duplicate statement or transaction verification fees.

What’s the minimum repayment amount I must make?

Our favourite strategy for using any credit card is to always pay off as much of your monthly balance as you can - preferably the whole lot. That way, you can avoid interest, late payment fees and keep your interest free days for the next month.

But if you are paying only the minimum from your P&N Bank credit card statement, it will be either 3% of your closing balance or $10 - whichever is the higher amount. If your closing balance is less than $10, your minimum payment will be the whole amount.

What rewards will I earn with my P&N Bank credit card?

Although there’s no rewards program attached to your P&N Bank credit card, you can cash in on a buch of cool perks and freebies if you opt for the platinum option.

These include a range of free insurance covers:

Overseas travel insurance

Interstate flight insurance

Extended warranty insurance

Purchase security insurance

Transport accident insurance

You’ll also get access to a 24/7 personal concierge service, which offers exclusive entertainment and travel offers.

Can I use my P&N Bank credit card for a balance transfer?

Yes - but there’s a catch. Although you can manage your credit card debt by transferring previous balances onto your P&N Bank credit card, you won’t get a zero interest period to pay it off, unlike many balance transfer offers.

This can actually be a good setup if you think you’ll take longer than the usual balance transfer period of 6-12 months to pay off your debt - instead of having a short zero interest period and then getting hit by high interest on any balance leftover, you can pay one flat, low rate.

But if you think you’d like to take advantage of a great balance transfer offer with an interest free period, check out our balance transfer table here.

Will my P&N Bank credit card work overseas?

Yep! Because your P&N Bank credit card is a VISA card, you can use it all over the world. VISA is accepted just about anywhere you might want to go, so your P&N Bank credit card is too. 

Can I use payWave with my P&N Bank credit card?

Yes! PayWave works on the VISA network, so you can use it with your P&N Bank credit card for payments under $100.

How can I protect myself from credit card scams?

Credit card scams are a type of credit card fraud. Making sure that your personal details and money are safe when you use your P&N Bank credit card is super important. So here are some ways to identify a credit card scam:

Offers that come out of the blue or calls requesting your secure details

Offers that sound too good to be true - they usually are

If a small transaction appears on your credit card statement that you didn’t make, don’t ignore it. Scammers often start with small transactions to ‘test’ stolen details

If you receive an email from P&N Bank asking you to click a link and input your secure details, chances are it’s a scam. Be very careful, and call the bank to confirm if you’re at all unsure.


P&N Bank also monitor your credit card 24/7 for fraudulent activity - so you can relax knowing they’ve got your back.

Also because I am a student I get a free credit card which means I can buy all my text books online were they are cheaper.
