A famous person once said: “ask not what you can do for your credit card rewards, but what your credit card rewards can do for you." (We might be paraphrasing here.)
The point is, in this day and age, no one should simply be using a credit card without gaining something from it in return – usually in the form of rewards or credits.
This is where the Myer Credit Card comes in.
The card - which you can apply for online if you're an Australian resident over 18, earning more than $20,000 per year - is automatically linked to the MYER one program, so those mythical points everyone talks about actually materialise as MYER one Rewards you can cash in at Myer.
Start earning uncapped MYER one Credits wherever you shop with the Myer Credit Card
You can also now combine your credit card and Myer one card into a single card. This means you will only ever need the one card at the point of sale (which is handy for your tiny, fashionable wallet.)
If you don’t like carrying any cards at all, then you’ll be pleased to know that it’s ready to go mobile with Google Pay and Apple Pay. So aside from keeping your pockets neat, the Myer Credit Card has a range of benefits.
For starters, it has no annual fee for the first 12 months if you sign up and get approved before August 31 2019. And if you are approved before the August deadline, you can get a 0% balance transfer for 14 months, as well as getting six months interest free on purchases at Myer over $250.
There’s also a myriad of other functions you can access either via the app or online once you’re signed up, including a handy budget tracker that you can set up on your mobile with real time push notifications.
While you shouldn’t rely on an app to actually manage your spending, the app will categorise your transactions and send notifications to your phone when you spend, helping you manage your finances.
The bonus here is this kind of functionality is an added security benefit, because it provides you a personal layer of digital vigilance on your transactions. You will know automatically if someone else is using your credit card - and if it's not the kids trying to purchase unnecessary items in games - you can pick up on fraud and act accordingly.
In the meantime, your dollars will be earning MYER one Credits wherever you spend. Specifically, one Credit per dollar spent anywhere, uncapped, and up to three Credits for every dollar spent at MYER – including online.
The credits can then be redeemed for rewards in the form of Rewards Cards to spend at MYER.
