How is interest calculated on my GO Mastercard?

When interest is charged

Interest is calculated daily and charged monthly on the GO MasterCard. Interest is charged when you carry a balance on your GO MasterCard. Interest is charged on cash advances from the date of withdrawal (fees and charges apply) and balance transfers from the date of transfer.

When interest is not charged

Up to 62 interest-free days apply to GO Mastercard purchases if you have paid the balance in full for the previous month’s statement and for the current month’s statement (the statement on which the purchases are listed).

Interest is not charged on the 0% Interest-Free Payment Plans available on the GO Mastercard until the interest-free period expires. Terms and conditions apply.

What will my credit limit be on my GO Mastercard?

Your credit limit for a GO Mastercard will be determined based on the information you provide in your application, keeping in mind the minimum and maximum credit limits available for each card. Find out more about how credit limits are determined here.
