    I currently have a GO Mastercard and 28 Degrees Mastercard. Both have the same limit. Would it be possible to balance transfer or combine both cards into 1?

    Can people with poor credit still get a credit card?

    • Staff
      JonathanJune 15, 2015Staff

      Hi Peter, thanks for your inquiry!

      There are no specific credit card products provided for individuals with poor credit. Your eligibility for a credit card will depend on whether you meet the application criteria and lending requirements of the bank. You may like to refer to bad credit personal loans.

    Hi All,
    Good day to you.
    Like to know whether if I purchased air-ticket using my GE Coles MasterCard, would it already covered the travel insurance so I do not have to buy again.
    Appreciate if you could kindly answer this.
    Thanks and regards,
    Rey

      Hi Darren,

      Thanks for your question.

      You’ll need to check the expiry date on your card to see if it has expired. If it has, you will need to get in contact with GE Money to find out about renewing your account or whether you’ll need to apply for a new one.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
