An Important Change to our Relationship Rewards Program.

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Published on 31 May 2021

We are changing our current Relationship Rewards Program (RRP) to a new simpler fee structure that will provide greater certainty and peace of mind for Members who use Visa Debit (excludes Business Accounts).

Currently, you receive a limited number of free transactions per month. You are then charged with excess transaction fees when you’ve exceeded your limit.

Effective 1 August 2021, transaction fees will no longer exist under the RRP. These fees will be replaced with the new Monthly Usage Fee. This new fee is capped at $5.00 per month per membership, and it gives you unlimited VISA Debit transactions throughout Australia.

Whether you are transacting at an ATM, a retail store or online shopping, you will be able to use Visa Debit without worrying about excess fees. The unlimited transactions apply not just on physical cards but also to digital cards linked to your personal account like Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay. Please note that some privately-owned ATMs may still have a Direct Charge prior to proceeding with the transaction.

With the current technology climate changing and with the advancement of software, keeping your bank accounts secure is becoming more difficult. Two-Factor Authentication (often shortened to 2FA) is not new, but it is gaining momentum as bank accounts are left exposed with weak or poorly secured passwords. Whether it be your bank accounts or social media accounts, the 2FA, also known as Two-Step Verification, provides an extra layer of security to ensure that it's you logging into your accounts.
