Hi Denise,


Thanks for your inquiry,


Unfortunately, there is no rewards program compatible with the Victoria Teachers Visa Credit Card at the moment. You can check our rewards credit card page for a list of cards earning points as you spend and redeem them for travel, gift cards, shopping, and more with a rewards credit card.


On the page, is a comparison table you can use to see which card suits you. You can use the table’s sort function to compare these cards based on bonus points, rewards points per $ spent, purchase rate, and annual fee. You can press the “More info” link to be redirected to our review page and learn more about the card’s key details, features, fees as well as the pros and cons of using the card. When you are ready, you may then click on the “Go to site” button and you will be redirected to the lender’s website where you can proceed with the application or get in touch with their representatives for further inquiries you may have.


Before applying, please ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and read through the details of the needed requirements as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions when comparing your options before making a decision on whether it is right for you. You can also contact the provider if you have specific questions.


I hope this helps!


Cheers,


Jonathan

Hi Lucy,


Thanks for your question!


The $500 amount is the lowest credit card limit that you can request. It is possible to apply for a higher credit card limit but not a lower one than this figure.


I hope this has helped!


Cheers,


Jonathan
