Frequently asked questions

If you have an existing debt on a credit card from another bank, you can request a balance transfer when you apply for a new St.George credit card. If the card and the balance transfer are approved, St.George will arrange to transfer the balance from your old account to the new card once you have activated it. Note that you cannot transfer debts from existing St.George, Bank of Melbourne or BankSA cards.

Allow up to 14 days for St.George to complete a balance transfer request. If you are a new customer, the balance transfer request will only be processed after you complete an identification check at a St.George branch and activate your card.

You can transfer a minimum of $200 and up to 95% of your approved credit limit to a new St.George credit card.

Yes, if you have debt on an existing card from another bank, you can request a balance transfer onto your current St.George credit card. Note that any balance transfer request you make will be subject to St.George's lending criteria and approval. As with introductory balance transfers, you also won't be able to move debt if it's on an existing St.George, Bank of Melbourne or BankSA card.

Yes, you can switch between the Amplify Rewards and the Amplify Qantas rewards programs at any time. Just get in touch with St.George Bank and ask for a Program Switch Request form.

If you have a St.George credit card that earns rewards, you'll earn points for most everyday purchases. This includes shopping at the supermarket, retail stores, petrol stations and at restaurants or online stores. But transactions that are not eligible to earn points include balance transfers, BPAY transactions and cash advances (including getting cash out). Refer to the Amplify and Amplify Qantas rewards card terms and conditions booklet available on the St.George website for full details of what transactions will and won't earn points.

You must repay at least 2% of your total balance or $10 (whichever is greater) by the due date on each statement period.

    Please advise if your travel money card comes with user name imprinted on the front. Many thanks

      Hi Jaz,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Please note that finder.com.au is an online comparison service, and is not connected with St.George.

      To answer your question though, the St.George website doesn’t mention that the card comes with a name printed on the front, just an expiry date and your card number. You may need to get in touch with St.George directly to confirm whether it is possible to order a card with your name on it.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Sally

    How long does it take to change to Amplify Platinum from my Gold Visa credit card? I am going overseas in September, how soon could I apply for the free travel insurance?

    • Staff
      JonathanFebruary 10, 2015Staff

      Hi Mandy, thanks for your inquiry!

      The transfer process for an existing St.George Card to an Amplify Credit Card is completed via a form from St.George’s website and can generally take up to 5 business days.
      To receive the complimentary travel insurance as per the terms and conditions “A cardholder becomes eligible for this Overseas travel insurance when, before leaving Australia on an overseas journey, they have a return overseas travel ticket, and A$500 of their prepaid travel costs (i.e. costs of their return overseas travel ticket; and/or airport/departure taxes; and/or their prepaid overseas accommodation/travel; and/or their other prepaid overseas itinerary items) have been charged to the cardholder’s eligible credit card account.”

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

    Hello. I’m an existing credit cardholder with St.George, I want to do a balance transfer from another bank. Is it possible to be a holder of two different credit cards with the same bank.
    Thank you.
    Koben

      JacobNovember 15, 2013Staff

      Hi Koben.

      Thanks for your question.

      If you already hold another St.George credit card, you can still apply for a new St.George credit card. The important thing is that you can’t hold two of the same account.

      I hope this helps.

    Hi. How are credit card limits set for non residents on a student visa?

    • Staff
      JacobSeptember 23, 2013Staff

      Hi Rene.

      Thanks for your question.

      Credit limits for temporary residents seeking a credit card are set the same way as for permanent residents. In order to be eligible for one of the these cards, there are certain conditions you need to meet, i.e. earn over a certain amount each year. Your credit limit will be assessed based on your income. You can find out more about this on this page.

      Hi Shell.

      Thanks for your question.

      You should have your card already. Did you elect to get it sent to a branch? It may already be waiting for you at a St.George branch to pick up. If this isn’t the case, please speak to the lender to find out where your card is. You can find contact numbers on this page.
