Having a Credit Card means that you have a certain limit that comes along with it. You have the option to choose between the Straight or Budget facility. Your Blue Bean Credit Card has one limit.

The credit card gives you the freedom to decide how your limit should be divided.

The Straight facility is specifically for everyday spending as well as for cash withdrawal at any ATM.

The Budget facility is used for purchases and cash withdrawals. You can choose to repay the amount in 6 or 60 months.

As a Standard Bank Blue Bean Credit card owner, your budget instalments are included in the minimum payment. In addition, your budget facility purchases are listed separately on your monthly statements.

Interest is charged from the date of the purchase.

When can you increase your Standard Bank Blue Bean Credit Card limit?

  • You can apply for an increase after six months
  • Increases are based on your Blue Bean Credit Card history
  • You can also apply for a temporary limit increase for a specific period. The limit will then change back at the end of the specified period.
