It is very important that you make at least this minimum payment in order to ensure that your account remains in good standing. It will normally be 5% of the balance outstanding or a minimum of $25. The minimum payment also includes any past due amounts and any portion of the total new balance owing that is more than your credit limit.
Your payment due date will appear on your RBTT Credit Card statement. It should be close to 21 days after your statement date. To verify your due date, please feel free to contact the Card Centre.
Your Personal Identification Number (PIN) allows you to withdraw cash from Automated Banking Machines (ABM) bearing the VISA or MasterCard logos similar to the one on your card.

Such requests can be made in writing, by completing an application form and filling out that portion of the form. The additional cardholder should also sign the form. Kindly note that such requests must be duly authorised by all of the relevant signatories of the company.

While most retailers are legitimate, it is wise to proceed with caution when making purchases over the telephone or on the Internet. Remember to follow a few simple rules to minimize risk:
Never give your credit card number over the phone, unless you have initiated the call.
When purchasing online, do so only from recognized retailers and only when the site is equipped with security features. Look for SSL (Secure Socket Layer) or SET (Secure Electronic Transactions) when you go to make a purchase. Look to see that the site URL begins with HTTPS and not HTTP. This indicates that the area is protected by SSL or SST protocols.
A key or lock symbol will appear at the bottom of your screen when you're making a purchase from a secure Internet site. If the lock or key is broken, this indicates that the site is not secure.
You are on: Credit Card Security Fraud tab
As RBTT is always working to reduce fraud, we have recently introduced an advanced, state-of-the-art fraud monitoring system which gives RBTT the opportunity to detect fraud as it is being carried out. Therefore we may try to contact you immediately if your card is being used in an unusual way, to ensure that you have authorised transactions. This is in no way a reflection of your credit worthiness.
If we are unable to contact you we may limit further use of the card to ensure you are protected. To optimize the efficiency of RBTT’s fraud prevention service, please let us know if you are moving and give us a call before you travel abroad.
Treat your RBTT credit card as if it were cash – do not leave it lying around and always be aware of where it is.
Upon receipt, sign your card immediately in the panel designated “Authorized Signature”, found on the reverse side. Use a ballpoint pen.
Never lend your card to anyone, even your friends or family.
Don’t respond to unsolicited emails or calls requesting personal details or financial information
Protect your confidential details and keep all of your banking information in a safe place.
Destroy all banking correspondence you receive when you no longer need it, even transaction slips as they may display your card number. What you consider rubbish can be useful to a fraudster.
Always check receipts and purchase amount when you sign the transaction slip and then again against your monthly statement and report errors right away.
Be vigilant to ensure that the merchant swipes your card through a genuine POS machine.
Never disclose your credit card details over the phone unless you initiated the call
Shop only on Internet sites that offer secure ordering. If the URL (web address) starts with “https” then the site is using a secure server.
Most browsers also display special icons, for example a padlock or a key, in the lower right-hand corner of your browser window, to indicate secure sites.
Many merchants also advise of the security precautions they have taken on their site. Look for this advisory. If you don't see it, ask about it.
Whenever you are traveling or you change your address or phone number, notify the Card Centre in advance.
Be sure to report lost or stolen cards immediately.
The responsibilities of the company and the cardholder are outlined in the card agreement. Take time to review it correctly. Using the credit card confirms that you have already read and understood the agreement and agree to its terms and conditions.
It is vital that no one gets hold of your Personal Identification Number (PIN).
Select a PIN that would not be obvious such as 1234, your birthday, car registration number, etc.
Never tell anyone your PIN or let them enter it for you.
Never give your PIN when ordering by phone, post or online, with your RBTT Credit Card.
Authorised users of your account will have their own PIN.
Never write your PIN down.
When using a cash machine or point of sale terminal, shield the machine with your body to ensure no one will be able to see your PIN. If you feel crowded, ask others to stand back before you enter your PIN.
Be wary of anyone trying to watch you enter your PIN. Don’t let yourself get distracted.
You are on: Credit Card Interest and Fees tab
Even though all credit cards may result in fees and interest, you can effortlessly enjoy all the benefits of your RBTT Credit Card without any penalties. There are basically two types of charges: interest and fees.
This is what you pay for borrowing money and is shown on your statement. Interest is charged on revolving balances, but by paying your balance in full and on time every month, you will not incur any interest whatsoever. However, it is not possible to avoid interest on cash withdrawals, convenience cheques and balance transfers, which is charged from the date of the transaction. The interest rate on cash advances may vary from the interest rate charged for purchases.
An annual fee allows you to access all the benefits listed in this guide and will be charged every year, even if you always pay your balance on time.
Late charges occur if you do not make a payment, if your payment arrives after the payment due date, or if your payment does not cover the minimum payment due. You can avoid this by checking the “Payment due date” and “Minimum payment” sections on your statement or online.
Over limit charges occur if your total of purchases, cash advances, interest and fees goes over your credit limit. If the possibility exists that you may exceed your limit, check online or call Customer Service to find out how much credit you have available. If you feel you need a higher limit, our Customer Service team will be happy to discuss it with you and do all they can to help.
Cash withdrawal fees will be charged if you withdraw cash on your card from a non-RBTT cash machine. If withdrawing funds abroad, please see the foreign exchange rate on your statement. Also, there may be an additional charge levied by the ABM that you are using. This fee is not controlled by RBTT.
Allow plenty of time for your payment to arrive.
Make sure you know the date your payment is due every month and what the minimum payment amount is.
To make payments on time take full advantage of helpful electronic tools like online banking solutions.
Sign up for Online Banking so that you will be able to check your balance and see how much you have available to spend.
Pay off your RBTT Credit Card balance in full each month on or before the payment due date.
If you choose not to pay off your balance in full, try to pay more than the minimum balance due.
Read your statement every month to make sure you always know the date your payment is due and the minimum payment amount.
Remember that the faster you pay off your outstanding balance, the less interest you will pay.
A yearly fee charged for use of the card.
Moving an unpaid balance from one open credit account to another. You will save money if you transfer balances to a credit account with a lower interest rate.
