This company is an absolute rip off and only want to take of advantage of you and take your money. Changed me $4000 in fees because i work away from home and can’t check my statements all the time. Been a customer for over 10 years and i will now NEVER use your card again and I’ll make sure to talk bad about your greedy company to all my friends and family. I hope this company goes under for all the people you have taken advantage of. Do not care about your customers one bit!!

I got this card whilst making purchase at Harvey Norman and took advantage of the card. The good point is the interest free period which you have to note so you make payments before the period. (Good point) The downside is that you will be slugged with a $4.95 account fee plus $0.95c for payment processing fee, every time you make the payment. Personally I would pay off the card in one go but moving houses, I lost track so I was slugged with the above. This card is useful for purchases but ensure you pay off during the interest free period or else the balance can escalate monthly. I would not be recommending this card to keep after you have made the purchase. due to on-going fees with the card.

The GO Mastercard

With this card you get up to 55 days interest free, plus there’s no annual fee to worry about, and you can earn rewards points with stores like Harvey Norman and Domayne. Points are capped at $100,000 per year, but they never expire so you can build them up.

GO Mastercard is a credit card offered by Latitude Financial Services. It is an unusual card in that it has interest free offers open on certain goods, but these goods change from shop to shop. This credit card has a very high interest rate of 22.74% p.a. on purchases and 29.49% p.a. on cash advances and expired promotional purchases. So make sure you don't run a debt on this credit card.

The card grows out of Latitude Financial Services (card formally owned by GE Money) specialty of offering consumer finance to enable shops to sell big items.

There are two offers that are available on the card. The first is a buy now, pay later facility. This means that a customer can choose a good and for a period it never gets added to the GO Mastercard balance and so there is no interest charged during this time and this does not affect the minimum balance on the card.

There is a modified form of the buy now – pay later facility, which are interest free periods. These are also interest free although a client has to maintain minimum payments on this portion of the credit card balance during this time. Any payments that are made during this period are made on the interest free element, so the interest bearing element will be allowed to grow untouched.

These offers are not available on all goods. They are only available in some stores and on some goods. The goods on which they are offered change from store to store.

More than 10,000 stores that accept these cards, distributed over a number of chains. Although there are many different areas of spending in which this card can be used the stores are usually ones that sell big ticket items such as furniture, home improvement items and electrical goods. These are listed in full on the GO Mastercard website.

The Go Mastercard is also a normal credit card as well, offering an Interest free period of up to 55 days. There is also a rewards programme that is free for any card user to join and which centres on a points system for spending.

    Hi Eddie, you can cash advance with the Go Mastercard. If you are in Debit you will still be charged the cash advance fee. Though you will not be charged any interest if you are still in debit post the advance.

I havnt used my Go Mastercard for some time, however, if I was to start using it to buy a couple of things from the supermarket, say $30 - $60 worth, would I be able to pay that off within a month on interest free?

    Hi Melanie, if you currently have a $0 balance. Then yes you should be able to do that. The interest free period depends when in your billing cycle you make a purchase. You can get up to 55 days interest free if you pay off your balance in full each billing cycle. Therefore its good to know what date this billing period starts. This should be clear on your statement dates.

Funny how everybody complains about Go mastercard. Just read product review. For me they are great because I dont spend money I dont have. I use the card for everyday use as well as paying my bills. The way I use it means that towards the end of the monthly biling cycle I make 1 payment from my bank account to Go mastercard. As an example from Dec 26 2017 to Jan 22 2018 I spent $2300.00 on my Go mastercard. So on the 22nd of Jan 2018 I paid my monthly credit card debt using their online payment. I zero\'d my account out. I pay no interest, account fee, bpay fee-nothing. I earn points which allowed me to redeem from a huge list, a gopro4. This is just 1 of multiple items redeemed. If you live off credit you will pay as per the terms and conditions. If you use the card but zero out the balance each month, then for using the card you get rewarded. The real issue from my observations is living beyond your means.

Fundamentally unethical company. This credit card product will get you in a tight spot and you'll unwillingly end up paying more fees than anticipated. Eg: 1) $0.95 payment handling fees for paying account via BPay. (Which company charges fees for receiving money via BPay?) 2) If you decide to make payment via GoMasterCard portal (user login), you can only do it once in 2-3 days, i.e. cannot pay additional money in second/third instalment until the first payment has been completely processed and goMastercard has received funds. Does it make sense? Not really. It’s more to force customer to make payments via BPay so they can charge fees or make them pay interest / fees on the outstanding payments. ) This product has attractive features but they are solely BAIT and that’s it. My recommendation don’t.

I would be weary of this card, as they now have a $0.95 Payment Handling fee every time you pay off your GoMastercard.
