Top tips for managing your Credit Card

  • Set up a Direct Debit - A Direct Debit helps to ensure regular, on-time payments. If you didn’t set one up when you applied for your Credit Card, you can still set one up at any time to pay your monthly Credit Card bill. Find out more about setting up a Direct Debit here.
  • Where possible, try to make more than your minimum payment each month - Only making the minimum payment will cause interest to build up quickly so it will take you longer and cost you more to pay off your balance. Best practice is to pay the full balance each month so you can enjoy the benefits of using your permanent tsb Credit Card without incurring any additional interest charges.
  • Never skip a payment - You should try to never miss a payment, even if the minimum payment is all you can afford, never skip a payment as your credit rating may be impacted.
  • Regularly check your account to avoid an over limit fee - If you spend over your approved credit limit, you will be charged an over limit fee of €7.50. The charge will still apply even if you make a payment that brings the account back within the agreed credit limit before you receive your monthly statement.
  • Pay on-time to avoid late fees - There is a fixed date by which you need to make your minimum monthly repayment. If your payment is a day or more late, you will be charged a fixed late payment fee of €7.50. This could negatively affect your credit rating. Consider setting up a Direct Debit to avoid this.
  • Try to avoid cash withdrawals - Unlike debit cards, you should try to avoid using your Credit Card to withdraw cash. If you do withdraw cash from an ATM with your Credit Card, you will be charged a cash withdrawal fee (minimum €2) and a higher rate of interest applies to all cash withdrawals.
