From 15 June 2017, the rate at which the Citi Signature Rewards Card will earn Points will change:

  • The earn rate of 1.5 Points for the first $20,000 spent on Domestic Spend each Statement Period will be removed and replaced with a tiered earn rate based on spend categories; and
  • Points earn on International Spend will increase from 1.5 Points per $1 spent to 2 Points per $1 spent.

The new earn rate is outlined below:

Card type Domestic Spend earn rate* International Spend earn rate*
Card type Citi Signature Rewards Card Domestic Spend earn rate*
  • 2 Points per $1 for selected purchases made and booked directly from a range of major restaurants and restaurant chains, major hotel chains and flights directly booked with major airlines^
  • 1.5 Points per $1 for selected purchases made at major petrol outlets, major supermarkets and major national retailers
  • 1 Point per $1 spent everywhere else on Eligible Transactions
International Spend earn rate* 2 Points per $1 spent on eligible International Spend

*Please note that whether or not a purchase is eligible to earn Points and how many (e.g. whether the merchant is a "major restaurant") will be determined based on card scheme information ultimately provided either by the merchant (including individual outlets) or its financial institution (including information about the type of business conducted by the merchant). If, for example, a restaurant is not classified as a restaurant by the card scheme, it will not be treated as a "major restaurant" for calculating Points.

^ Please note purchases not ordered or booked directly from the restaurant hotel or airline (e.g. through a delivery company, travel agent, or aggregation site) are not included in the higher earn rate.


Eligible Transaction means any purchase excluding (but not limited to) Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, Special Promotions, BPAY payments, purchases of foreign currency and travellers cheques, transactions made in operating a business, payments to other Citi accounts, bank fees and charges such as interest and ATM charges, transactions made using Points and government related transactions. Government related transactions include transactions with government or semi-government entities, or relating to services provided by or in connection with government (for example but not limited to transactions made at Australia Post, payments to the Australian Taxation Office, council rates, motor registries, tolls, parking stations and meters, fares on public transport, fines and court related costs).

Please note that whether or not a transaction is an Eligible Transaction will be determined based on card scheme information ultimately provided either by the merchant (including individual outlets) or its financial institution (including information about the type of business conducted by the merchant). This means that, for example, spend with certain merchants may be characterised as spend with a government related entity and therefore not an Eligible Transaction, even if that merchant is not in fact a government related entity.

0% p.a. for 6 months3. Cash advance rate after
6 months.
Retail Purchase Rate

The rate that a bank or credit provider charges for the money it lends to you.

20.99% p.a.
Cash Advance Rate 21.74% p.a.
Interest Free Period

Some credit cards give the cardholder the option to make transactions on their account without being charged any interest. If your card has an 'interest free day' clause (check your pre contractual statement or your conditions of use) then you will qualify for interest free use so long as you pay the entire closing balance of each monthly statement before the due date shown on the statement. If you pay less than the full closing balance as shown on the statement you will incur interest charges in accord with the conditions of use. If you short pay one time, you usually need to pay the full balance for two consecutive months before your account will be interest free again.

If you carry a balance on your credit card from month to month, you do not have an interest-free period even if your conditions of use say your account has interest free days options. You are charged interest immediately when you make a purchase.

For example, if you have a balance of $500 and make a payment of $50 on June 1st, and buy an item for $50 on June 2nd, you will immediately be charged interest on that $50 purchase. This is because you have an outstanding balance of approximately $450 between June 2nd and your next statement.

Importantly, if your credit card is not an interest free day type account, even if you pay the statement balance in full each month, you will still be charged interest.

Up to 55 days interest-free12
Maximum Credit Limit

The maximum balance you can carry on your credit card or line of credit account.
