Frequently Asked Questions about Woolworths credit cards

How may interest free days do I get on my Woolworths credit card?

When those grocery bills start piling up into a hefty credit card balance, you’ll have 55 days, from the start of each monthly credit card statement cycle, to pay them off interest free. Keep in mind that this only applies if:
You’ve paid off last month’s balance in full

You make all your purchases at the beginning of the month. If you buy later in the statement cycle, you’ll have less than 55 days to pay off your balance before paying interest as well.

What fees might I be charged?

In the first year of having your card, the annual fee will be waived if you opt for the Everyday credit card, or discounted if you go for the platinum option. After that, you’ll pay a full annual fee on each card. You’ll also pay annual fees on any additional cards you choose to have. 

There’s a cash advance fee, either $5 or 3% of the transaction - whichever is higher - plus foreign exchange fees and all the usual late payment or dishonour fees.

What’s the minimum repayment amount I must make?

The minimum amount you need to pay off your credit card balance each month is relatively high on a Woolworths credit card, at the greater amount of either $50 or 2.5% of the total balance.

Having said that, it’s a good idea to always pay off as much of your monthly balance as possible - the whole lot if you can manage it. This will minimise the amount of interest you pay and help keep your credit card balance under control. 

What rewards will I earn with my Woolworths credit card?

When you spend on your Woolworths credit card, you can opt to earn either qantas points or to redeem your points for gift cards.

On a Woolworths Qantas credit card, you’ll earn one Qantas point for every $1 you spend. Points are automatically credited to your Qantas frequent flyer account, never expire and are totally uncapped - so you can earn as many and save them up for as long as you want!

It also comes packed with a bunch of extra features, including:

Concierge

Travel Insurance

Extended Warranty

Purchase Protection

Rental Car Excess Cover

With an Everyday Woolworths credit card in your pocket, you’ll earn:

3 points for every $1 spent on Woolworths products

2 points for every $1 spent in Woolworths supermarkets or outlets under the Woolies umbrella, including: BIG W, Woolworths Liquor, BWS, Dan Murphy's, Thomas Dux, Cellarmasters and Masters.

1 point earned for every $1 spent on other purchases

You can also cash in on a 24/7 concierge service and purchase protection cover. Like the Qantas points, these rewards are uncapped and don’t expire.

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

Yep! When you use your Woolworths credit card to manage previous credit card balances with a balance transfer deal, you’ll get a lengthy 0% interest period to catch your breath.

Make sure you use this period to its full potential, because when it ends, any balance you still owe will revert to being charged interest at the much higher cash rate. Ouch!

Will my Woolworths credit card work overseas?

Yes! You can use your Woolworths credit card wherever VISA is accepted, which is good news for all the jetsetters out there. Otherwise, you can check out our travel money hub to see all the other options you have for spending on your holidays.

Can I use payWave with my Woolworths credit card?

You certainly can. Woolworths credit cards are VISA cards, which means you can make contactless payments up to the value of $100 on VISA’s payWave system.

How can I keep my Woolworths credit card secure?

While we don’t want to make you paranoid or nervous about using your credit card, you should give a few moments thought to security when you use your Woolworths credit card to spend. Here are a few top tips to help you keep your card secure:

Don’t write your PIN number down anywhere!

Be aware of your surroundings when you use an ATM

Keep your card in sight during over the counter transactions

Don’t share your card details online

Review your credit card statements regularly, keeping an eye out for unusual transactions

Ok card if most purchases are from Woolworths

Could offer more points per transaction. If not used for most transactions you may not receive enough points for offset the annual fee.

Terrible card. Service bad, slow. Waiting for the card 1 and a half months and nothing happens. Staff don't know anything. I have submitted my pay slip twice. They keep calling you for asking same information when applying for this card. Last call was asking me to submit my pay slip again. I just said cancel it, and don't phone me again.

Works ok until God forbid there is a problem or you have a query to sort out - then the customer service is simply dreadful. We had this card for 5 yrs, then they recently capped the FF points, increased the fees for both primary and 2nd cardholder and recently managed to charge us $265 in late payment/interest fees - as they somehow cancelled our direct debit by mistake. Not only that but it took x5 long telephone calls, x6 emails and x4 letters over 6 weeks just to get the fees reversed...so we decided enough was enough and cancelled the card...not worth the hassle Woolies so stick to the supermarket business !

Horrible customer service.

Customer service is slow, inept and unable to process simple requests. I have waited a month for a credit limit increase. Worst credit card I have had in 20 years.
