Benefits of Unity Bank credit cards
Getting a credit card through the Unity Bank comes with a number of benefits, and here’s what you can expect.
Interest-free days with a difference
With most credit cards you have to pay your balance in full each month to be eligible for interest-free days on purchases, but the Unity Bank credit card works differently. With this card, your outstanding amount notwithstanding, you get up to 55 interest-free days on all purchases.
Annual fee waiver
Look forward to a $0 annual fee for the first year. If you have the All in One Home Loan with Unity Bank, the annual fee does not apply at all.
This low rate card offers an even lower introductory rate that stays in place for the first six months. While this introductory rate applies on purchases, you can also use it to transfer balances from existing credit cards and store cards.
More than 24 million merchants in around 220 countries accept Visa as a form of payment so you can use your Visa credit card just about anywhere. You can use any ATM that displays the Visa logo to withdraw cash. Your card also gives you the convenience to make online and phone transactions, whether it’s to shop or to pay bills.
Unity Bank offers compatibility with all 3 major digital wallets: Google Pay, Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, which allows you to make contactless payments with your eligible smartphone or wearable device at the checkout.
How to apply for a Unity Bank credit card
You can apply for a Unity Bank credit card by visiting a branch or you can request a callback from a Unity Bank specialist. You have the option to download an application and you can also complete one online. To get started with an online application, simply click on the ‘Go to Site’ button located next to the credit card’s details. Before you begin with the application, establish that you meet the following eligibility criteria.

- You have good credit history
- You have a steady source of income
- Personal details. These include your complete name, date of birth, marital status, number of dependents, and driver’s license number.
- Contact details. These include your home address, email address, phone number, and the most convenient time to call.
- Employment details. This section requires you to enter your occupation, employment status, employer’s name, employment address, and length of employment.

- Monthly expenses. Provide details about rent, mortgage payments, loan payments, credit card payments, and other ongoing expenses for food, bills, transportation, and so on.

After you submit your application you receive a reference number that you can use to track your application, and a Unity Bank rep should contact you within 48 hours. Unity Bank, in all likelihood, would call your employer to carry out a routine income verification process.
Upon approval, if you’re not an existing Unity Bank member you’ll have to become one before receiving your card. You’ll also have to complete an identity verification process, as mandated by the Australian government, and this might require you to visit a Unity Bank branch.
