Hi June,

Using a credit card for a cash advance is typically expensive because you’ll be charged cash advance fee and interest charges straight away. Some lenders also have a daily cash advance limit. For example, Heritage Bank also has a $1,000 daily cash limit for credit card ATM withdrawals or EFTPOS “cash out” transactions. It’s possible to request a change to the limit but important to be aware of it before getting a card specifically for a cash advance. Finder’s guide to credit card cash advances has more details about what to consider. In regards to paying an existing debt, it may also be worth considering a personal loan that’s designed to manage existing debt. I hope this helps.

Hi Jessica,

You can compare credit cards for people on Centrelink in Finder and learn more about the different payments that are accepted, as well as eligibility criteria.


Keep in mind that most credit cards charge a 2-3% fee for cash advances and have a separate cash advance interest rate. While this card has the same interest rate for purchases and cash advances, most cards charge a higher cash advance rate that can be up to around 30%. This is much higher than the rates offered on personal loans, as an example. There are also some no interest loans that may be available for essentials, depending on your circumstances. I hope this helps.

Hi Greg,


Thank you for your inquiry.


In order to conduct a balance transfer from your NAB cards to Heritage Gold Low Rate Credit Card, you’ll need to apply for this card and get approved. Make sure you read the criteria and requirements before applying. Please also note that you can only transfer a total amount up to 95% of the available credit limit of the Heritage Gold Low Rate card.


Cheers,

May
