    I just started my job and never have a credit card in Australia before. How many months of payslip is needed for me to apply for this credit card?

    • finder Customer Care
      JhezelynOctober 10, 2018Staff

      Hello Joey,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Most card issuers require only three of your most recent payslips. This means you can apply in your second month of work if you get paid fortnightly. You may want to check our guide about credit card application for new employees. This is the same with Woolworths.

    Does the Woolworths everyday platinum card work with apple pay

    • finder Customer Care
      JohnSeptember 4, 2018Staff

      Hi Tigger,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Yes you would be able to link your Woolworths Everyday Platinum Credit Card with Apple Pay. To begin using Apple Pay, open Wallet (formerly Passbook) on your iPhone, tap Add Credit or Debit Card and enter your card details. Tap Next, after which your card will be verified by your bank – once that’s done, tap Next. You can now use Apple Pay. You can also register through some banks’ own apps. The process is largely similar to Apple Wallet’s – see your bank’s website for more details. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie

    Woolworths Card quote. “When you earn 4,000 points, you’ll receive a $20 Shopping Card every 4 months.”
    So if I earn more than 4000 points (say 12000) will I receive a shopping card to the value of $60 every 4 months?
    Is this card compatible with Samsung Pay?

      Hi Lindsay,

      Thanks for your message and for visiting finder – the leading comparison website & general information service built to give you advice in your buying decision needs. How are you doing today?

      To answer your questions:

      1. So if I earn more than 4000 points (say 12000) will I receive a shopping card to the value of $60 every 4 months?

      Points are subject to the Woolworths Shopping Card Rewards Program Terms and Conditions. As per their website,“Every 4 months, points are automatically converted to a Woolworths Shopping Card redeemable at participating Woolworths Group stores. Participating stores may change from time to time. The Shopping Card expires 90 days after date of issue. Minimum of 4,000 points is required to receive a $20 Shopping Card”

      You may confirm with the card company if you will receive more than 1 card if you earn more than $4000 points.

      Is this card compatible with Samsung Pay?

      You can use the Woolworths Money app to make payments with your card. As for Samsung Pay, you may have to inquire this with the card company.

      Please note that we’re a product comparison website and we do not represent any company we feature on our site. We provide general information on products to assist you in your buying decision process hence we cannot recommend product / service that is rightfully fit for you.

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

    Is there a redemption vs earnings ratio for each card?
    For example, one point per dollar spend will earn 0.015 redemption value for say a gift card. I understand that a gift card redemption ratio MAY differ from airline miles for a card but let’s consider a gift card or cash back if the same.
    This ratio would enable a benefits comparison.

    Hello,
    if i do a balance transfer which has 14 months interest free, do i still get 55 days interest free on all other purchases made during that 14 months?

    • finder Customer Care
      RenchJanuary 19, 2018Staff

      Hi Wendy,

      Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that we are not affiliated with Woolworths or any company we feature on our site and so we can only offer you general advice.

      With the Woolworths Everyday Platinum Credit Card, you will not receive the interest-free days on purchases unless your balance has been paid in full (excluding any Interest Free Finance promotions). This means that while you carry a balance transfer debt, you will not be able to take advantage of interest-free days on purchases.

      Best regards,
      Rench

      Hi Trina, thanks for your inquiry.

      You can load your credit card into a ‘credit’ balance, but not through a Woolworths. You will have to transfer to your credit card account online or through branch.

    What constitutes an “eligible purchase”?

    • finder Customer Care
      HaroldOctober 19, 2017Staff

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      1 point earned for every $1 spent on other eligible purchases. Points are not earned on cash advances, balance transfers or other restricted transactions detailed in the Woolworths Shopping Card Rewards Program Terms and Conditions.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

      ChrisOctober 20, 2017

      Thanks Harold. The reason I was asking is because you need to make an “eligible purchase” before you get the gift card bonus thingy. Is an “eligible purchase” basically anything other than those things you’ve listed, plus what appears at the Woolworths site (e.g. gambling transactions, etc.)?

    • finder Customer Care
      HaroldOctober 20, 2017Staff

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Yes, in general it has an exclusion. To make sure you only avail the eligible purchases you would need to read first the Woolworths Shopping Card Rewards Program Terms and Conditions.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
