Understanding your statementShow more

As a Gem Visa customer, you'll receive a monthly statement (if there is a balance on your account). If you have a paper statement delivered by mail you'll be charged $1 every month. To opt out of paper statements, register for the Online Service Centre, and follow the instructions.

Each statement outlines your transactions over the last month and the minimum monthly payment required by the due date.

The minimum monthly payment is 3% of the total outstanding balance, or $20, whichever is greater, excluding any unexpired deferred payment advance.

Your statement will also show any overdue or over-limit amounts.

If you have any questions regarding your statement, please read 'How to read your statement' or call our Customer Services team on 0800 500 505.

Managing your interestShow more

Manage the amount of interest you pay

It’s now easier than ever to manage your long term interest free purchases. We’ve designed your statement to be as simple as possible, outlining the information you need to easily keep track of your interest free and deferred purchases, including a 'Payment to Reduce Further Interest' amount.

The ‘Payment to Reduce Further Interest’ amount tells you how much to pay to reduce the amount of interest you’re charged in the future, or in some cases, avoid interest altogether.

The 'Payment to Reduce Further Interest' includes the minimum monthly payment, any outstanding fees, non-promotional balances and any promotional transactions that will become interest bearing shortly. Check your statement for additional information.
