Many people question whether they can hold credit cards from other institutions, while keeping another bank account for things like savings, investments, loans, and mortgages.
Of course! Some institutions have features that others just don’t, so there’s no rule against having more than one. Another question that people frequently ask is how to pay a credit card on AccesD Desjardins.
This is not only possible, but quite easy! In this article we’ll walk you through all the simple steps and teach you how to pay a credit card on AccesD Desjardins.
Paying a credit card from another institution through AccesD Desjardins is no more difficult than paying any other bill. Here’s how to pay a credit card on AccesD Desjardins:
Now you know how to pay a credit card on AccesD Desjardins. It’s quite simple, and you can use it to take advantage of great credit card offers from other institutions, while still paying your cards through Desjardins!
Of course if you’re here learning how to pay a credit card on AccesD Desjardins, it’s worth mentioning that it has its own cash back Visa card. We’ll tell you all about it so that you can compare it to your other options and make a choice about whether it’s the right choice for you.
Visa Desjardins is a cash back card with no annual fees. You can get up to 2% back on your purchases, and it includes travel insurance on trips for up to 3 days, and an interest rate of 19.9%.
The percentage of cash you get back from your purchases depends on what category they fall into. For instance, you get 2% cash back on entertainment, alternative transportation, preauthorized payment, or restaurant purchases, but you only get 0.5% cash back on anything deemed “other purchases”.
But it can be a good investment if you spend hundreds of dollars per month in any of these categories. For instance, if you were to spend $200 per month at restaurants, you’d get approximately $48 per year cash back.
There are several other benefits to Visa Desjardins besides the cash back. Here’s a look at some of them:
Among Visa Desjardins’s benefits is travel insurance, not just for you but your whole family, for up to three days.
You can get discounted car rental from companies like Hertz, Thrify and Dollar. You can get as much as a 15% discount when you use your Visa Desjardins card to pay for car rentals.
You can get up to $1,000 in insurance for situations like theft, accidental damage, or mechanical damage of your device, so long as it was purchased with your card.
You can also get purchase protection and extended warranties for certain devices that are purchased with your card, as well.
If you pay for purchases more than $200 or more, or pay for large purchases or projects with your Visa Desjardins card, you can get cash advances. You can take out cash advances of up to $2,500 per day with 19.9% interest on them.
It’s worth noting that if you’re new to Desjardins and just learning how to pay a credit card on AccesD Desjardins, interest on cash advances and making purchases with your Visa Desjardins are different.
Interest on cash advances is charged immediately, while when it comes to credit card purchases, you’re allowed a 21-day grace period after the statement is issued before you’re charged interest on your credit card purchases.
You can get security alerts via text messages if any unusual activity is detected on your account. You’re not held liable for purchases and transactions if fraud is detected on your account.
You get identity theft protection to keep your assets safe, and they offer support in the event of identity theft protection.
