Why you'll love the Vertigo card

Low interest rate

A useful benefit if you don’t think you’ll pay off your purchases in full each month.

Low minimum credit limit

If you haven’t used credit much before, or aren’t confident using it, the $500 minimum limit can help ensure your spend doesn’t get out of control.

Up to 55 days interest-free

That’s more time to pay your purchase balance and avoid interest charges on your purchases1. The interest-free days don’t cover cash advances.

Other reasons to choose

Add a second cardholder (16 or over) for free, while keeping all the spend on the one account2.
