Service One Visa Card Rates & Fees

Information verified correct on September 23rd, 2016

Get a Visa card linked to your overdraft facility, and with an existing Service One home loan you pay a standard variable home loan rate on the card.

The Service One Visa Card gives you access to your overdraft facility, which makes it rather similar to a credit card. While it allows you to access your own funds, you can also access up to and including a pre-determined credit limit. The overdraft facility attracts a competitive interest rate, and if you have a Service One home loan, the interest charged on the overdraft facility is the same as a home loan rate.

Service One Visa Card review

If you’re looking for a Visa card that offers credit and also allows you to access funds in your savings account, you can consider applying for the Service One Visa Card. Its competitive interest rate of 15.25% p.a. makes it an option for people who tend to carry over balances from one month to the next. Service One members with home loans get to pay a considerably lower rate.

Benefits of the Service One Visa Card

  • Low rate. Service One members with home loans who use the Visa Card with credit facility pay an interest rate linked to the standard variable home loan, which currently stands at 5.50% p.a. The standard rate when using funds from your overdraft account is 15.25% p.a.
  • Low transaction fees. When you select the ‘Credit’ option, you don’t have to pay any withdrawal fees for Visa transactions. You don’t have to pay any transaction fees for Visa merchant and retail transactions either.
  • Continuing credit insurance. This insurance covers your repayments in the event of involuntary unemployment, disability, trauma and death.
  • Easy access to funds. You can access funds through the global Visa network which covers more than 150 countries and includes ATMs and EFTPOS terminals. You can use this card for cash advances, at ATMs and financial institutions that accept Visa, and you can also use it to pay bills and make purchases over the phone or online.

Service One Visa Card features

  • Visa Card fee. While this card does not attract any annual fees, you have to pay a nominal fee of $2.50 per activated card, per month.
  • Fee structure. Service One operates on a tiered fee structure that they call a ‘Relationship Balance’. They look at your entire membership and all of the products you own to determine what fees you should be exempt from.
  • Low rate. The credit facility this card comes with attracts a competitive interest rate of 15.25% p.a. and existing Service One home loan holders pay a considerably lower rate of 5.50% p.a.
  • Insurance. Continuing credit insurance can help you take care of repayments in case something happens and you can’t meet your repayments.
  • Repayment methods. You can make repayments via phone and online banking, you can set up direct debits from your transaction or savings account, you can pay via payroll deduction, or can you make repayments at any Service One branch.
  • Visa payWave. When you shop at establishments that display the Visa payWave symbol, you can use this card to make contactless payments of under $100.
  • Verified by Visa. If you use this card to make online transactions, Verified by Visa works in detecting unusual activity. This helps keep your transactions secure and offers you peace of mind while you spend.
