Suncorp Clear Options Standard Credit Card
Terms and conditions apply
Balance transfer rate for 20 months with 1% balance transfer fee
0% p.a.
Purchase rate
12.74% p.a.
Annual fee
$55 p.a.

Our verdict

Offers 0% interest on balance transfers for the first 20 months with a 1% balance transfer fee and a $55 annual fee.

The Suncorp Clear Options Standard is a low-cost card that currently gives you 20 months interest-free on balances you transfer to the card. If you’re still paying off a balance transfer after the first 20 months, a much higher 21.99% p.a. interest rate applies. So you’ll typically get the most value out of this 0% interest offer when you can pay off your balance transfer during the introductory period.

Pros

  • 0% p.a. on balance transfers for the first 20 months
  • Low 12.74% purchase interest rate
  • Up to 4 additional cardholders at no extra cost
  • Compatible with Samsung Pay, Google Pay, and Apple Pay

Cons

  • Charges a one-time 1% balance transfer fee
  • High 21.99% p.a. balance transfer rate after the introductory period
  • No interest-free days on purchases, which means you will be charged interest from the day you make a purchase on your card

With a balance transfer do you still have to pay a minimum monthly repayment?

Hi Lesley,

Yes, you still have to pay the minimum amount listed on each monthly statement to service the account. I hope that helps.

Hi Basilios,

If you meet the eligibility requirements, including the minimum income requirement, you can apply for this credit card. Suncorp will then assess your application before giving you an outcome. If you have questions about eligibility, you can call Suncorp on 13 11 55. Finder’s guide to credit cards for people on Centrelink may also be of assistance. I hope that helps.

Hi Raeleen,


Thanks for contacting Finder.


Suncorp Clear Options Standard credit card does not let you earn reward points however, it gives you 10% cashback on eligible purchases made by both the primary or additional cardholders in the first 6 months (up to $150).


You can consider Suncorp Clear Options Gold and Platinum credit cards instead, if you want to earn reward points.


I hope this helps.


Cheers,

Charisse
