The charge Card does not have a conventional preset spending limit like a typical credit card, but rather a shadow limit that reinforces your financial flexibility. This shadow spending limit is variable and is reviewed regularly based on a number of factors, including your credit record, account history, spending patterns and our current understanding of your financial resources. To protect you we also closely monitor your account for out-of-pattern (potentially fraudulent) spend behaviour. Please call us should you be planning larger-than-usual expenditure in the near future or if you wish to ascertain or increase your current shadow limit. Charge Cards require you to settle the full amount of your bill on the specified payment due date. If the bill is unpaid, interest is charged from the day of purchase and your ability to use the Card may be affected.
