Get the most out of your Credit Card with Plan ItTM

 

Plan ItTM Instalments is designed to give you the flexibility to pay off your Card balance the way you want. You can realise a dream and try new experiences, then pay off your balance in monthly instalments with 0% interest and a fixed monthly fee1.

 

Plan It in 3 simple steps

1. Choose an amount over $150 to pay from your total balance.

2. Select the length of your instalment plan – either 3,6,9 or 12 months.

3. Review the terms & monthly fee of your chosen plan and confirm. It’s that easy.

Know your repayment options

 

When your statement arrives, you’ll have a choice of repayment options. You can pay off the entire closing balance on, or before the statement due date, in which case you’ll avoid paying any interest. Or, you can choose to pay at least the minimum payment due. With this option, you’ll incur interest on outstanding balances. 

 

How to work with your interest free period

 

The best way to use your Credit Card is to aim to avoid paying interest, which means paying off a purchase within the interest free period. The Credit Card interest free period, ‘or interest free days’, refers to the time between purchasing something with your Credit Card and when interest is applied to that purchase. Depending on the card, this can be up to 25 days following the end of your statement period. 

In the example below, the Credit Card has up to 55 interest free days and assumes that the previous two months’ balance has been paid in full. 

1 Jan: Statement period begins

Your 30-day statement cycle begins from today. 

10 Jan: You make a purchase 

You have 45 Interest Free Days to pay for this purchase

30 Jan: Statement period ends

It’s been 30 days since the statement period began. You now have 25 days to pay your closing balance.  

31 Jan: New statement period begins

24 Feb: Payment due date

Your interest free days end now. Pay your closing balance to avoid being charged interest.

Charge Cards let you rewrite the rules. 

 

Compared to a normal Credit Card, a Charge Card is a different way to manage your finances. With no set limit, you have the freedom to spend more when you want to without interest, but you’re required to pay off the balance in full by the due date each month, otherwise you may get charged late payment fees.

 

  • No interest
    A Charge Card does not incur interest, however you will need to pay your balance in full every month, as a fee is incurred if the amount is not paid off in full.
  • More purchasing power
    No pre-set spending limit gives you greater purchasing power. No pre-set spending limit does not mean unlimited spending. Your purchases are approved based on a variety of factors, including current spending patterns, your payment history, credit records, and financial resources known to us.
  • Earn points on purchases 
    With no pre-set spending limit, you can increase the points you earn along the way – meaning rewards could be yours even sooner.
