You get to deal with friendly, helpful, and efficient staff, in branches and over the phone, given that this credit union runs a locally based support centre.

Important Information

The Summerland Credit Union Credit Cards are no longer available for new applications as these credit cards are no longer available to new customers. The credit cards cannot be applied for, however, the information on this page has been kept for the benefit of existing customers and for those who are interested.

Types of credit cards that Summerland offers

A number of credit unions offer MyCard Mastercard credit cards to their members, and so does Summerland. You get to choose between two types.

  • Low rate credit cards

    If rewards and other extras don’t lure you, you’re probably better off getting a card that charges a low interest rate. The Low Rate MyCard Mastercard that Summerland offers its members gives you the ability to get up to 55 interest free days on purchases, and it comes with a special introductory rate for balance transfers. If you apply before a given date, you can keep paying a discounted fee for the life of the card.

How to apply for a Summerland Credit Union Credit Card

You can apply for a MyCard Mastercard by visiting any Summerland branch and you can also initiate the process over the phone. You can download an application by visiting the Summerland Credit Union website or you can even apply online. To download an application or to apply online simply click on the ‘Go to Site’ button next to the card you select. Ensure that you meet the following eligibility criteria before applying.

  • You’re older than 18 years of age
  • You’re a permanent resident of Australia
  • You don’t have bad credit history
  • You have a valid email address
  • You earn a minimum of $25,000 to apply for the Low Rate MyCard, and at least $35,000 p.a. to apply for the Platinum MyCard

The application requires you to part with a host of personal, employment related, and financial information.

    • Personal. The first section requires your complete name, date of birth, nationality, marital status, number of dependents, mother’s maiden name, and the name and contact details of a friend or relative who resides elsewhere.
    • Contact. This section requires your home address, how long you’ve lived there, residential status, phone number, and email address.
    • Job. Mention if you’re self-employed or retired. If employed, provide your job status along with your employer’s name and contact details.
    • Financial. This section can be the most exhaustive, and requires information surrounding your income and expenses. While income includes income from all sources, expenses include your regular living expenses as well as all other recurring expenses. You also have to provide details about your existing loans, credit cards, store cards, and other debts.

After applying for your card

Once you submit your application Card Services reviews it and a Card Services rep might contact you for additional information. An income verification call going to your employer is part of the process, which you can help quicken by letting your payroll department know of the call ahead of time.

If you’re not an existing Summerland member, in order to receive your card you’ll have to apply for Summerland membership. New members have to go through a legally mandated identity verification process, for which you might have to visit a Summerland branch.
