Why have a Credit Card?

If you are over 18, a South African citizen and earn over R3 000 per month, you can enjoy the benefits of a TymeBank CreditCard.

1

You can shop online or in-store


You can use your Credit Card anywhere you see the Visa logo, anywhere in the world. You can also draw cash at any ATM on the planet, for a small fee.

2

They come with built-in security


A Credit Card is filled with loads of safety features such as SMS notifications to keep your money safe from fraud-tsotsi’s. And, if you take up a Credit Card protection plan, your balance will be covered up to R250 000 should you die, get a dread disease or become permanently disabled.

3

You can pay off big expenses more easily


The budget facility on a Credit Card means you can pay off big expenses, like an unexpected medical emergency, a new fridge or school fees, in smaller monthly installments over 6, 12, 18, 24 or 36 months for purchases of R200 or more.

4

You can build up your credit record


When applying for a car loan or a clothing store account, your bank will look at your credit history. Managing your Credit Card well by making payments in full and on time, is an easy way to get a good credit record. And a good credit score means quicker approval for loans and possibly even lower interest rates.
