      Hi Carolyn,

      Thank you for your question.

      A number of Australian credit cards come with MasterCard as a third party payment processor.

      View our comparison of Australian MasterCards here. On this page you will be able to compare the annual fees (as well as a number of other rates, fees and features) offered by Australian MasterCards.

      I hope this has answered your question.

      Thanks,

      Hi Leena,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately Aussie does not have any balance transfer offers for existing cardholders. If you’d like, you can compare alternative options on this page.

      All the best,

    The offer states 0% bal transfer for 8 months with 12.99% thereafter charged. However other print states 5.99% int after takeover of current credit card and 20.99% int charged.
    I’m confused.

      Hi, Rosanne.

      Thanks for your question.

      If you’re an existing Aussie card holder, you will need to check with the lender directly to arrange a balance transfer, you can use the methods you’ve listed in your question; however, it’s a good idea to give them a call to find out the applicable interest rate and the length of the promotional period (if applicable).

      Generally speaking, a balance transfer can take between 5 and 10 business days to process.

      I hope this helps.

    I have an Aussie Mastercard numbered and, recently, when I tried to use it, the POS terminal told me I had provided an incorrect PIN. I realise that I am now 72 years old but didn’t thing I was going senile yet. Can I please get an email advising me of my PIN. I have (I thought!) the same PIN on several other cards with a small variation where more than four digits are required and I tried both.

      Hi David,

      Thanks for your comment.

      If you’ve setup your online account with Aussie, you can access your PIN by logging into the ‘My Aussie Cards Portal’.

      If you don’t have an account set up, please contact the Aussie Customer Service team and they’ll be able to assist you.

      Cheers,
      Shirley

    How to cancel my lost credit card and have it replaced?

    • Staff
      JacobJune 21, 2013Staff

      Hi Jon. If you’re looking to close your account you can do this once you’ve paid your card balance in full. You will need to reapply if you want the card replaced. Jacob.

    Hi there,

    I need to do a balance transfer from two cards over to the one. Can you please tell me what the approx. repayment would be monthly on a $5,300 credit card. I am considering the Aussie Classic Low Rate MasterCard? 9mths at 0%

    Thank you…..

      JacobJune 14, 2013Staff

      HI Lisa. Thanks for your question. Aussie will let you transfer from up to four non-related credit cards, store cards or charge cards. This card has a minimum monthly repayment, which is listed in the product table on the card’s review page. This is the minimum amount you need to pay off the card each month to stop your account from going in to default. In your case this is approx. $100 a month. Hope this has helped. Jacob.
