Interest-free periods are not available for all types of purchases. For example, at ANZ they do not apply to cash advances.Back to top
Credit card providers can offer credit card accounts with interest-free periods on purchases and some credit card accounts without. If you’re unsure whether an account has interest-free periods on purchases please refer to the credit contract for that account.Back to top
At ANZ, if a consumer credit card account has interest-free periods on purchases, the account holder can avoid paying interest on the purchases balance by always paying the full Closing Balance (or if applicable, the ‘Adjusted Closing Balance’) shown on each statement of account by the applicable due date. The Adjusted Closing Balance is calculated as your Closing Balance less the sum of any relevant Promotional Plan balances that relate to an Instalment Plan, a Buy Now Pay Later plan, or a Promotional Balance Transfer Plan. If the account holder doesn’t pay the full Closing Balance (or if applicable, the ‘Adjusted Closing Balance’) shown on a statement of account by the applicable due date, they will generally be charged interest on their purchases balance from the day after the Due Date shown on that statement. Not all transactions (e.g., cash advances) get the benefit of interest-free days. Refer to the applicable credit contract for details.Back to top
Other terms or conditions may apply to interest free days. Check your credit contract for details of the terms and conditions that apply to your credit card account or the account you are considering.Back to top
