Frequently Asked Questions

About the Fixed Payment Option
Q.What is a Fixed Payment Option?
A. A Fixed Payment Option allows you to take advantage of an interest rate lower than the standard rate you currently pay on your credit card account for a fixed term of your choice. This rate will apply to a cheque request of $500 or more up to your available credit limit, or selected unbilled retail purchases of $500 each or more (up to 5 unbilled retail transactions at one time). You select the amounts then select your preferred available repayment term. The Fixed Payment Option is an offer and is subject to your eligibility at the time of processing.

Cheque requests: by requesting cash as part of a Fixed Payment Option, you can access funds from your credit card up to your available credit limit and spend it however you like. It will be sent to you in the form of a cheque.

Retail purchase requests: by assigning a retail purchase to a Fixed Payment Option, the lower interest rate means that you could save on monthly interest (if you are not paying your balance off in full each statement period) that you would otherwise pay as a result of the standard interest rate currently on your account.

Setting up a Fixed Payment Option results in fixed monthly repayment amounts that are rolled into the Minimum Payment Due amount on your monthly statement. You pay the Fixed Payment Option off with Monthly Instalment amounts over your chosen term, which means by the end of your fixed term, you would have paid the full amount off entirely provided you've met all your repayments.

Important Information

*The Fixed Payment Option is subject to eligibility, account status, available credit limit and for cash requests, the available cash limit. For full Terms and Conditions of your Fixed Payment Option refer to the Credit Card Terms and Conditions and Other Important Information.

*Savings assumes that you are or will be incurring interest at the Annual Percentage Rate on any retail purchases before they are converted to a Fixed Payment Option or that you would incur an interest rate which is higher than the Fixed Payment Option rate for any cash requested. The savings also assumes that once the Fixed Payment Option has been setup, you pay the Monthly Instalments by the payment due date each month.

^The maximum interest free period applies when you pay your closing balance off in full, less any Fixed Payment Option amount, for two consecutive months by the payment due date. If you carry a balance on your credit card from month to month (exclusive of the Fixed Payment Option amount), the interest free period does not apply and you are charged interest from the purchase date. No interest free period is available on Cash Advances or when you have Balance Transfers.
