Fair go?

Reviewed by help required

They were good at the start and when I got into trouble they didn’t want to know about it. I wanted to combine my cards and make it easier for me but they refused. They were quick to give out the cards but not to assist. Fair go – help australians.


Addictive!

Reviewed by Christina

At the beginning the credit card was easy to maintain and pay off, but I have extended many times and am finding it hard to keep on top of! It’s not the card so much, but myself allowing it to get out of control and maxing out my limit too much.


Too expensive, bad service

Reviewed by Ebi Riemer

I found BankSA to be not very user-friendly and restricted usage – whilst overseas the card did not work in all ATMs and the entire credit limit could not be used as expected. Bear in mind that my credit limit was $600, which is too low to be called credit – it should be in the $1000 range. I’m going to change to a different bank soon.


I save a lot of money with this card

Reviewed by Nikita

I have had my BankSA Vertigo low interest card for many years now as it is very beneficial with the very low interest rate. I save lots of money. With this card I have also received balance transfer offers with no interest for a certain period, which I have used and saved thousands! Love my card.


Good interest rate

Reviewed by Angie

When I compared other interest rates, this card worked out cheaper. However, it carries an annual fee which is annoying when so many credit cards don’t any more. I have been looking for another credit card because of this. I usually pay my balance off each month so it works out, but at the moment I’m being hit with interest which is a money drain!


Good everyday card

Reviewed by Karina

The BankSA Vertigo credit card is a good everyday card with a low annual fee and I would highly recommend it to everyday users. If you pay your card off each month, then you don’t get charged interest. This means you can purchase something and depend have up to 49 days to pay for it.
