      Hi abeve19@eq.edu.au,

      Thanks for your question.

      Just to confirm, are you referring to additional cardholders with St.George Vertigo Visa?
      If so, we can confirm that an additional cardholder can be issued on the primary cardholder’s credit card account to any nominated person aged 16 or older, at no extra cost.

      I hope this helps.

    James | June 21, 2016

    Hi,
    Can the proceeds of a balance transfer be payable by cheque or must it go into an existing credit card account from another financial institution ?

    • Staff
      May | June 21, 2016

      Hi James,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you will conduct a balance transfer to your St. George Vertigo Visa Card, the transfer cannot be payable by cheque but rather you can request a balance transfer when you apply for your credit card and St.George will arrange to transfer the balance for you.

      Please also note that the activation of your St.George is a must card for the balance transfer to take place.

      I hope this has answered your question.

      Cheers,
      May

    Heavenly | May 29, 2016

    Hi,
    Am I able to transfer my remaining balance of my car loan to this card or is it only for credit card balances.

    • Staff
      Anndy | May 30, 2016

      Hi Heavenly,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Unfortunately, transferring a car or personal loan to St.George Vertigo Visa Card is not possible as they only allow balance transfer from a credit card issued by a different institution. However, you can move your car loan balance to a Citi or Virgin Money credit card. You can check your options here.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

      Hi Trudy,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      If you’re looking to find a balance transfer credit card, you can compare your options here. Please note though that the credit limit you’ll be approved for is determined by the credit card issuer based on your income, ability to repay and credit score.

      I hope this helps.

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      If you believed that a fraudulent transaction was charged to your St. George credit card, you’ll need to inform St. George immediately. Please feel free to check our guide on how you can file a dispute for a fraudulent transaction on your card here.

      Also, you can find below a quick guide on how to lodge a dispute for an unauthorised transaction on your St. George card:

      1. Call St. George and lodge your dispute over the phone at 1300 304 040. OR
      2. Log into your internet banking. Once logged in, select ‘Dispute a transaction’ underneath the ‘Did you know you can?’ tab and follow the prompts. You can also lodge the dispute by selecting the relevant account and selecting ‘Dispute a transaction’ underneath ‘Quicklinks’.

      I hope this can help.

      Cheers,
      May
