Notice on paying only minimum monthly repayment (not applicable for Amanah cards)

The amount of interest you have to pay and the time it takes to repay your balance in full will increase if only the minimum monthly payment is made. The following table illustrates the amount of interest incurred and the repayment period, under different outstanding amount scenarios if you continue to pay only the minimum amount. The computations are based on 5% minimum payment or RM50, whichever is higher, at a finance charge under different tiered interest rates. You may pay more if you wish (any amount above your minimum payment requirement) as long as payment is made within the specified payment due date.

Interest calculation table

The minimum payment is 5% of the outstanding balance or RM50, whichever is higher. The table below shows how long it would take to pay off an outstanding balance. The assumptions are based on: (1) interest rate of 18% p.a. for the entire repayment period; (2) there are no new retail transactions after the 1st month; (3) 30 days per month; and (4) payments are received on or before due date.
