Annual fee waiver

If you are looking for a credit card with zero annual fees for the first year, then the all-new Standard Chartered Smart Credit Card is your starter kit!

After that, you will need to spend RM12,000 annually in the subsequent years to enjoy the annual fee waiver.

What happens if I do not make a repayment on time?

There will be a finance charge incurred on the outstanding credit card balance that is overdue. 

This finance charge, ranging from a minimum of 15% per annum to a maximum of 18% per annum, is tiered based on the user's repayment behaviour in the last 12 months.

See the table below for reference:

Annual Rate Condition
15% Cardmembers who promptly settle their Minimum Monthly Payment due for 12 consecutive months.
17% Cardmembers who promptly settle their Minimum Monthly Payment due for 10/11 months in the last 12 consecutive months.
18% Cardmembers who make 9 months or less prompt payments of their Minimum Monthly Payment in the last 12 consecutive months.

For example, within 12 months from the card approval date, if you have missed three (3) credit card repayments consecutively, an 18% per annum finance charge will be levied on the credit card outstanding balance.

After you have managed to consistently repay your credit card outstanding balance promptly and in full for 12 consecutive months, the finance charge will default to the minimum.

Brilliant lines of credit from Standard Chartered

If you're looking to manage your finances better, get started with multiple lines of credit from Standard Chartered.

As a start, the Standard Chartered Smart Credit Card is equipped with beneficial credit lines such as FlexiPay Plus and Balance Transfer Plus which offer competitive rates and flexible repayment tenures.

Standard Chartered also has a special offer for those keen to apply for FlexiPay Plus, in which applicants can enjoy  0% instalments for only three months! You simply need to convert a retail purchase of RM500 and above and apply directly via the SC Mobile Banking app. Maybe it's time to get that Dyson vacuum or a brand-new Smart TV perhaps?

Other than that, you can also enjoy the following credit lines with a Standard Chartered Smart Credit Card:

  • Easy-Payment-Scheme

In addition to that, you also get rewarded with 5% cashback on online spending (local and international) whenever you deposit RM3,000 minimum of fresh funds every month into your account. Your JumpStart account must also be active to enjoy this perk.
