Interest-free* means you will not pay any interest on the promotional purchase you made with Stratco during the promotional period. You will be required to pay the minimum monthly repayments as you would with any standard credit card purchase. Other transactions made with your credit card will incur interest charges. Upon expiry of your interest free* period, any remaining balance will revert back to the cash advance rate of 25.99% p.a.
As well as having the advantage of not being charged any interest on your promotional purchase for the specified promotional period, you don't need to make any repayments towards that purchase for the deferred period of the promotional purchase. Some retailers call this, 'Buy now, Pay later'. Payments will be required once the payment deferred term has expired. Other transactions including fees and charges will require the minimum monthly repayment amount set out in your credit card statement.
Yes, you can use your card to make additional interest-free* purchases in-store up to your available credit limit. Simply bring your HSBC Visa Card in-store and ask the attendant to process an 'Add-on'.
Unless your payments are deferred, the minimum monthly repayment is the higher of $20 or 3% of the outstanding balance at the time your credit card statement is issued. You must pay at least the minimum repayment set out in each statement on or before the due date. This is the date HSBC should receive your payment. You should allow sufficient time for payments to be received and processed by us before the due date.
