How to apply

To apply for this Visa credit card you should be a Woolworths Employees' Credit Union member. You can apply for membership as an existing or retired employee of the Woolworths (Aust) Limited group of companies, or as a family member of one.

You can apply for the WECU Visa card online, and to do so now simply click on the 'Go to Site' button. Bear in mind you'll have to meet the following eligibility criteria to qualify:

Eligibility criteria

  • You're at least 18 years old.
  • You're an Australian citizen or permanent Australian resident.

Card benefits

  • Low rate. Most Australian credit cards charge higher cash advance rates when compared to their purchase rates, but this is not the case with the WECU Visa credit card. With this card, you pay the same low variable interest on purchases and cash advances alike.
  • Use for balance transfers. You can use this card to transfer balances from an existing card and repay them at a lower rate. As the balance transfer is not restricted by a promotional offer, you can pay it off in your own time. Plus, WECU doesn't charge any fees on balance transfers.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. Expect to pay an annual fee of $25 for as long as your credit card account remains active.
  • Interest rate. A low variable rate of 13.45% p.a. applies on purchases, cash advances, and balance transfers.

    I saw an advertisement for a Woolworths Low Rate credit card recently, and was wondering if this was the card being advertised. Would you know?

    Cheers,

      Hey J.

      You may need to get in touch with the Woolworths team directly if you’ve lost your account details. They should be able to help you once you’ve verified your identity.

      Thanks for your question.

      Hi Janviere. Thanks for your question. When you receive your card it will come with your PIN number and activation slip. You either fax or mail this slip to Woolworths Employee Credit Union or you can activate your card online if you’re registered with Internet banking. You’ll need your member number and access code to log in. I hope this helps. Jacob.
