This card has such a high interest rate, I feel I can never reduce the balance. I am tempted to find a low interest credit card to transfer over to, so i can save $$$$$.
It is convenient, but it’s not good when the interest rate is so high. At least if it was a lower rate there would be more chance of customers spending on it, as they wouldn’t be paying it off so much.
I have only this card – my first one – big mistake: high interest, no rewards, no way of getting ahead. It’s slow and painful, costing a lot more than I thought. It makes me feel sick.
I can’t wait to get it down a little, and change through Credit Card Compare to one that will reward me and have lower interest.
It is convenient, but the charges are astronomical and there are more charges than actual spending. You never seem to be able to reduce the balance amount as the charges are over and above what is necessary, even if you pay more than the amount owing per month. I am not happy at all.
It’s a convenient card to get you out of trouble but the interest rate is not the best. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a credit card and has an average credit rating. That way, at the very least, you can gain a better credit score from this card.
Gem Visa has been the best credit card company to go through. I have certain issues with overdrawing and have never been hit with a large fee. Payments are a breeze to make — a simple transfer every pay is a simple task. It takes no time at all out of your day. Paying each month leaves you with no existing fees, with no hassle of overdrawing.
On applying for the credit card, the customer service team was a blast to talk to. All my questions were answered, everything was a breeze, and in no time I was sent my card in the mail.
I have never had an issue with credit theft or any hassles with my bills. Everything has been straightforward and straight sailing.
I would never choose another credit card company.
It has excellent customer service and is a convenient card to use. But It has high rates and fees and few rewards.
The late fee is $25. The annual card fee is $99. It costs $0.95 to pay your bill. This is unethical and exorbitant. I would not recommend to anyone. I will pay it off and close it as soon as I can. Never again will I obtain a card through Gem Visa.
Why is no one talking about the annual fee as well as a 95c charge for every payment you make. It all adds up, especially if you budget weekly and pay bills. The interest-free period is good, but overall fees are not fine. We initially got this card for a holiday away.
This is a big corporations that want you to default on your credit card so they can continue to charge you fees for years to come. It is unfortunate that the banks supply these cards to Australians that cannot afford the repayments. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Credit cards are not achievable for the normal working-class Australian.
I have only just begun to use Gem Visa but have found it quite acceptable so far. They have good 0% interest offers for purchases over $250 and are in business with various companies to offer you long-term 0% interest rates — e.g. eye laser surgery 0% for 24 months with Vision Eye Institute.
There’s a reasonable annual fee, but an expensive purchase interest rate if you go off the 0% offer.
I only had to speak with customer service once. I found them quick to answer and relatively helpful.
My Gem card has been a lifesaver &mdash six months to pay off any purchase over $250.
Customer service is fantastic. A company split my purchase into four amounts, so I wouldn’t have qualified for the interest-free period. But I flicked Gem a Facebook message and they had it fixed up within three days.
