Our verdict

Offers reward points on your credit card spending and complimentary insurance on purchases, with a $129 annual fee.

The Suncorp Clear Options Gold Credit Card is suited to people who want modest rewards and perks through their card. It earns 1 Suncorp Credit Card Reward Point per $1 on eligible spending for the first $1,500 in each statement period, then 0.5 points per $1 for the rest of that statement period. This spending threshold is relatively low compared to some other rewards credit cards, so consider your average monthly spending to decide if it will limit the amount of points you earn.

Pros

  • Earn rewards points for your spending
  • Up to 55 days interest-free on purchases
  • Complimentary insurance covers including purchase protection insurance and extended warranty insurance

Cons

  • High purchase interest rate of 20.74% p.a.
  • 3.4% foreign transaction fee

The Suncorp Clear Options Gold Credit Card earns points that you can redeem for rewards including gift cards, statement credits, retail items and point transfers to Velocity Frequent Flyer. It offers up to 55 interest-free days on purchases if you pay your total balance by the due date on each statement. But otherwise, the 20.74% p.a. purchase rate is at the higher end of the scale. As it's one of only a handful of gold credit cards on the market in Australia, you could also compare it to other rewards cards or platinum credit cards to help decide if it's right for you.

Hi, Ken.


If you have an existing Suncorp account that you would like to transfer a balance to, please contact the lender directly to see what balance transfer rate they can give for existing customers.


Thanks for your question.

I am now retired with assets in excess of 2 millions dollars and annual income from investments and superfund in excess of 250,000 dollars.

What do I need to supply with? Your form asks for the name of my employer but I don’t have any. How do I prove my income to you?

Hi Guy.


If you’re retired you can still apply for this card, you will need to select ‘self employed’ and then you will need to provide your accountant’s details so he can verify your information when contacted by the bank.


Thanks for your question.
