We all need access to money when we need it most. There are so many Credit Card Accounts offered by our banks in South Africa, all of which require credit checks and FICA (Financial Intelligence Centre Act) requirements. Having a credit card is the same as having a loan that needs to be repaid. Ensure you meet your obligations when you have a loan or a credit card to avoid a bad Credit Score.

Getting a Blue Credit Card from Standard Bank is easy and gives you all the confidence you need for financial freedom. You can do more than just withdrawals; you can make secure payments online when shopping.

One of the best security features any bank can ever have is the ability to deactivate or reactivate your credit card using the Standard Bank mobile banking app and it’s free.

The Standard Bank Blue Credit Card gives you the confidence to swipe or tap to pay in any store where you see a MasterCard ® sign. You can link all your apps to strengthen your online security payments using your phone.

Paying back your outstanding balance has its own rewards, not only does it strengthen your credit score, but it also gets you 0 interest charges if paid in full for 55 days with Standard Bank. Earn Points with UCount Rewards when you pay using your Blue Credit Card.

NB: The Blue Credit Card is a basic and simple credit facility with no additional loyalty features or benefits. It is still the best option if simplicity is what you looking for.
