Benefits of banking with Bendigo Bank

Here are some of the features and services you'll get access to with a Bendigo Bank credit card:

  • Interest savings

Bendigo Bank calculates credit card interest from the statement date instead of the date you made each purchase. This means you can enjoy interest-free days even if you carry a balance. Plus, any amount you pay off by the due date on your statement won't be charged interest. In comparison, most other credit cards charge interest from the date you make a purchase and won't offer you interest-free days when you carry a balance.

  • Access funds easily

You can use your card online, over the phone or in-person all around the world, anywhere Mastercard is accepted. You can also enjoy contactless payments at the checkout, with no need to enter a PIN if the transaction is under $100.

  • Rewards

Through the Bendigo Bank Rewards program, you can collect points for your spending and then redeem them for rewards from categories like gifts, home, technology, kids, and more. Meanwhile, if you're a frequent flyer, you could enjoy earning Qantas Points for your eligible spending on the Bendigo Bank Qantas Platinum Mastercard.

  • Complimentary insurances

Bendigo Bank platinum credit cards offer a range of complimentary insurance covers, with options including complimentary overseas travel insurance, purchase protection insurance, extended warranty insurance, best price guarantees and mobile device insurance.

  • Digital payments and contactless payments

You can link your Bendigo Bank credit card with Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, Fitbit Pay or Garmin Pay to make contactless payments using your qualifying device at the checkout.

How can I apply for a Bendigo Bank credit card?

If you've compared your options and decided to apply for a Bendigo Bank credit card, you can submit an online application, apply over the phone or submit your application to a Bendigo Branch. Before you apply, though, make sure you've met the following eligibility requirements and organised the necessary documents:

Eligibility criteria

  • You must be at least 18 years of age
  • Permanent Australian residents and Australian citizens are eligible to apply. Temporary residents are eligible to apply as long as you have a 188, 457 or 489 visa, have applied for permanent residency and have at least 12 months remaining on the visa.
  • You must not be bankrupt or insolvent

Required documents/information

  • Your complete name, date of birth, marital status, and number of dependents
  • Include your employer’s name and contact details
  • Details about your income, expenditure, assets, and liabilities

What happens after I have applied?

The time period Bendigo Bank takes to assess credit card applications can vary from one application to the next, depending on whether they have all of the information they need. A bank representative may contact you if they require further information. If you are approved, you should receive your new card between five to 10 business days.

From low rate cards and rewards cards to business cards, you can compare a variety of credit card options through Bendigo Bank. However, as many other companies offer similar products, it's important to compare your options before applying.

    Hi im on single parenting payments with family tax benefits part A & part B totalling $1490p/f that’s about nearly $36000p/a with expenses of $1880 monthly am I eligible to make a loan for a house as a first home buyer using my regular pension and my family tax benefit as my proof of income to approve a loan?

    I have read online that Bendigo Bank generally accepts centerlink benefits as a source of income on a case by case basis, how much is the interest rate for personal or home loans?

    I would like to borrow about %150,000-$200,000 as a first home buyers loan for a home which is 15km from Scottsdale north east Tasmania in south springfield its a rural 3 bedroom home on a 1080metre squared block of level land.

Please note that lenders have individual lending policies. Each lender will need to assess your financial and personal situation to be able to advise on your options and eligibility.

      We are actually a financial-products comparison service so unfortunately we do not provide personal loans on-site. However personal loans are available with Bendigo Bank, with more information in regards to the types of loans available and the application criteria on this page.

      Hi Peter.

      Thanks for your question.

      You may want to have a look at our low rate credit card comparison page. Click on the card name to read a review of the card. If you would like to compare more than one card, please click on the check box to the left of the card name, and then click compare at the top or bottom of the table. This will let you compare a number of cards in a side by side comparison. Look for the minimum income requirement for each card. This will let you know how much you need to be earning before you can apply for a card. The pension is considered a form of income.

      I hope this helps.
