Things to consider about the BankSA Unsecured Personal Overdraft

This overdraft facility from BankSA is unsecured, meaning you're not required to attach any guarantees in order to be approved for credit. The overdraft is linked directly to your transaction account, so you'll be required to have a BankSA Complete Freedom account in order to benefit from the facility. If you don't have one of these accounts, you can easily open one when you apply.

Features of the BankSA Unsecured Personal Overdraft

There's a host of features that come with a personal overdraft with BankSA:

  • Interest rate. This overdraft comes with a competitive variable interest rate of 14.99% p.a.
  • Credit limit. When you apply for this overdraft you'll be approved for a limit of between $500 and $20,000, depending on your financial circumstances and BankSA's lending criteria.
  • Repayment and terms. As it is linked to your BankSA transaction account, there is no expiry date for the overdraft facility. There are also no repayment terms and the amount outstanding is payable on demand.
  • Repayment flexibility. You are not required to make any regular minimum repayments and there is no fixed repayment amount.
  • Transaction account. Your overdraft will be linked to your BankSA Complete Freedom transaction account.
  • Account management. BankSA gives you the ability to track and manage your overdraft facility and transaction account through their Internet Banking portal.
  • Fees. You pay $0 establishment fee to set up your account, although you will be charged a $5 monthly fee as long as your overdraft facility is open.
  • Account access. You'll be able to access the full limit of your credit 24 hours a day, making for a convenient credit solution when you need it most.
