Get interest-free days on purchases or a $0 annual fee for life with an Adelaide Bank credit card.
Adelaide Bank offers two credit cards that can help you keep account costs down in different ways. You can avoid interest charges on new purchases made with the 55 days interest-free Visa, or you can save on yearly account costs with the $0 annual fee card.
If you have a home loan with Adelaide Bank, you could also be able to save on interest by linking your credit card to your offset account and using it to pay for your expenses throughout the month. This strategy helps you keep money in your offset account for longer, and can reduce the interest you pay on your home loan as a result.
Types of Adelaide Bank credit cards
Adelaide Bank Visa with 55 days interest-free
This credit card has a $55 annual fee and a standard variable interest rate of 19.24% p.a. While this rate is at the higher end of the scale, you can avoid interest charges by making use of up to 55 days interest-free on purchases in each statement period. This is made up of a 30-day statement period (when you’ll make the purchases), plus 25 days to your payment due date. So, if you pay off your full balance by the due date on each statement, you’ll enjoy 0% interest on your purchases.
Adelaide Bank Visa with $0 annual fee
This credit card has no yearly account fee and no interest-free days. This means the standard variable interest rate of 17.98% p.a. applies to all new purchases from when they are made. These features could be manageable if you rarely use a credit card and can pay it off quickly. Otherwise, the potential interest charges will quickly add up.
Features and benefits you’ll get with an Adelaide Bank credit card
- Exclusive offers through Visa. Adelaide Bank credit cards give you access to Visa’s range of travel and retail offers, which often includes shopping, dining and hotel deals. You can also enjoy pre-sale ticket deals and competitions through Visa Entertainment.
- Offset account facility. With this service, you can keep more money in your Adelaide Bank offset account each month by paying for all your expenses with your credit card. At the end of the statement period, your credit card payment will automatically come out of the offset account. If you use your offset account for everyday spending, this strategy allows you to keep money in the account for longer, which can help reduce the amount of interest you pay on your home loan.
- 24/7 lost or stolen card support. Get round-the-clock support if your card is lost or stolen by calling 1300 652 220 within Australia or +618 8300 6000 when you’re overseas.
- Online and phone banking. Choose between online and phone banking services to help you keep track of your balance, make payments and manage your accounts. The online banking service also lets you send secure messages to Adelaide Bank so you can quickly update your details or ask a question about your account.
- Branch banking partnership. If you want to bank in person, Adelaide Bank’s partnership with Bendigo Bank means you can visit any Bendigo Bank branch for withdrawals and deposits, telegraphic transfers or bank cheques.
