The Absa credit card is designed for professionals, business people and students who have a stable source of income.
The ABSA credit card allows account holders to receive up to 57 days of interest-free days at the time of purchase, excluding withdrawals, online gaming and transfer transactions, and purchases on fuel plan and budget.
Absa has adjusted its student credit card. Now the student only needs to pay the $800.00 of monthly income needed to get the credit. The requirements are not high, but students need to prove they earned this amount.
Types of ABSA Credit Card
Absa has two cards for daily use, a Flexi Core Card and a Gold Credit Card.
The main Flex Credit card is suitable for first time logins. Flexi Core credit cards are easy to manage, so they’re designed for people who don’t have a credit score. It is much easier to build a credit score with this card.
The Flexi Core credit card is simple and has the modern features you would expect from a credit card, such as using the app for online transactions and purchases. The gold credit card standard is somewhat flexible because there is nothing complicated, no private bank and no financial advice.
The Gold credit card is a typical top-tier credit card, with limited services, but in some ways it’s better than other top-tier cards from other banks.
