You can add a number of additional cards to your account so you can give one to a relative or friend to use if need be. Each additional card issued is linked to the main account — the credit card statement and credit limit are shared — but each card has it’s own unique card name and the individual’s name is printed on the front.

Apply for an additional card either when you apply for the account online or after you apply by sending in an additional cardholder request form.

It’s very difficult to properly predict what your credit limit will be before you’ve applied for credit. The application will ask you whether you want to apply for the maximum credit limit available to you or whether you want to apply for a specific credit limit. If you’ve applied for a credit card before and know roughly how your ratio of debt to assets translates to available credit, you can use this figure as a guide for working out your new credit limit.

You can increase or decrease your Greater Bank credit card in one of two ways.

  • Use internet banking. Follow the prompts to apply for a credit limit increase.
  • Download an application form and send it to the Greater Bank head office.

You can decrease your credit limit at any time by calling the Greater Bank and speaking to credit card representative.
