Supplementary Cards7 with no annual Card fee
You have access to Supplementary Credit Cards at no extra cost. What's more, Velocity Points earned on each Supplementary Card will be credited to your Velocity Account, so you can earn Points faster7.
A balance transfer can be a simple way to save on interest and repay more of your balance sooner. When you apply for the Velocity Gold Card online or over the phone as a new Card Member, you can also apply at the same time to transfer an existing balance from another account.
Applicants must apply online or by phone by 30 April 2014 and be approved. You can transfer up to 50% of your credit limit up to $7,500 maximum.
Once the balance transfer has been approved, a 1% credit plan establishment fee will be applied and you will receive a rate of 0.99% p.a. for the first 6 months of your Card Membership1. This offer excludes any existing or previous Card Members.
The low rate of 0.99% p.a. expires at the end of the first 6 months of your Card Membership and after that date the standard rate of interest will be charged on any remaining balances on your account.Find out how much you could save through the calculator below
