      Hi RenHart,

      Thanks for getting in touch! You can get 60,000 Suncorp Rewards Points points when you spend $1,500 on eligible purchases each month made in Australia and internationally for 6 months from account approval. Bonus reward points will be credited to your Rewards Balance within 6-8 weeks of meeting the spend criteria. Eligible transaction means any purchase on the card excluding cash advances, balance transfers, special promotions, BPAY payments, purchases of foreign currency and travellers cheques, transactions made in operating a business, payments to other Suncorp Bank accounts, bank fees and charges such as interest and ATM charges, transactions made using Points and government-related transactions.

      Hope this clarifies!

    If I apply and get approved and transfer say 10k and have an approved limit of 20k … if I make purchases on the card i understand that the 55 day interest free does not apply to those purchases. If I purchase 1 product in the first month worth $100, my debit balance is now 10,100. Is interest then charged on the 100 only – or the whole 10,100? Talking to someone at Suncorp they have told me the whole 10,100 but my read of the t’s and c’s that I can find is that it only applies to the 100. The 10k is still interest free for the 18 months.

      Hi Matt,

      Thank you for your question.

      No, not the whole $10,100. The interest for your purchases will only be applied to your purchases. So for instance your card has a balance transfer offer with free interest, that will remain the same for the interest-free period. Your purchases, meantime, will be charged with interest if in case you won’t be paying in full by the due date. Unless your card offers 0% interest for both purchases and balance transfer for a limited time, then you won’t be charged interest (for both purchases and BT) within the promo period.

      Hope this has helped.

    Regarding the 60k bonus points above, are they frequent flyer points? Can they be transferred to Qantas points? I am already an existing Qantas FF member.

    do you need to make monthly for the amount (balance transferred) before the 0% period ends? Or you just need to pay off the full amount before the 0% interest rate period ends? thanks

      Hi Sahlee,

      Thanks for your message and for visiting finder.

      Yes, with the balance transfer, you can pay your balance on a monthly basis. For instance, you’re able to transfer $5,000 to the card, payable within 18 months without interest, the estimated monthly would be $5,000/18 = $277.78 per month. Please note that you can pay equal to or more than your monthly payment until your balance is paid off before the 18-month period ends. Any amount left on the card after 18 months will have a 21.99% interest rate.

      Hope this helps! Feel free to message us anytime should you have further questions.

    Are you able to do a balance transfer from 2 separate credit cards over to the 1 new one?
    Eg. Westpac CC and CBA credit card each have 5K debt on each, can each of these be transferred onto a Suncorp 0% balance transfer card?

      Hi Tenielle,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, it is possible to transfer balances from multiple credit cards to a new balance transfer card. However, the total amount you can move depends on your approved and available credit limit on the new card.

      For Suncorp balance transfer cards, you can transfer balances from various brands, but excluding those issued by Citigroup (BOQ, IMB, Virgin Money, and Citi).

      For reference on where you can balance transfer to/from, you can check our guide here.

    Which banks offer the interest free rate on transfer of small loans?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      August 28, 2016

      Hi Sid,

      Thank you for your question.

      Just to clarify, are you referring to transferring your personal loan to a credit card? If so, Citibank and Virgin Money accept a balance transfer from personal loans to a credit card. Please feel free to visit this page and compare your balance transfer credit cards from these banks.

      Hope this has helped.

    If I use a Platinum Visa card to book my flights to Perth do I get travel insurance for
    interstate travel.

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      July 22, 2016

      Hi Vicki,

      Thanks for your question.

      Based on the terms and conditions of your card, if you have a Suncorp Bank Clear Options Platinum Credit Card, you will be eligible for the Interstate flight Inconvenience Insurance cover if:

      – you used your card to pay for the entire cost of the return interstate flight (excludes taxes and airport and travel agent charges) prior to commencing the journey

      – where the travel is for 14 consecutive days or less

      For your convenience, I’ve sent you a link to the Suncorp Bank Credit Cards Description of Insurance Cover for your reference.

      I hope this answers your question.
