Easy to use

Easy to use just like my ANZ Visa! As promised I received my $100 credit for making purchases over $1600 for month. Nice little bonus!! My only criticism of GEM Visa is being charged a fee for every time I make a payment, not a big deal though.

Great Financial product

I am very happy with this credit card so far. The six month interest free purchase is very helpful and sometimes they have great offers that I can enjoy taking up and benefit from.

Worked great!!

Can't say until I use but the way it worked in Melbourne was amazing and so easy, the Sales Team used the Card with ease and I was on my way home in 15 minutes.

Worst Company I have EVER dealt With

This company and the staff are totally incompetent. We wanted to pay out this card and close it. We were given a figure and paid what we were told. They then charged us another fee for the online payment. After paying this they AGAIN charged us another fee so we still could not close the account. I spoke with several staff members all of whom were either not helpful at all, rude, aggressive or totally incompetent. Horrible lack of service and useless staff. My recommendation is to NEVER deal with this company

Simple process and QUICK

Both on the net and in store applications easy to complete. Never thought I could do it but they made it a great experience. App seems simple enough but would like account information other than just your card number to access plan information earlier on. Thanks guys.

Reliable financier

Hassle free buying experience and value for money credit facility. Got discounted rates for installation service for the 3 air conditioners I purchased. Will use it again in future purchases

No idea how to active account or set up??? No account numbers or cards given?

No account number or card number to log in. Can't get anyone on the phone to tell me how. Have reached out numerous times via email. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

12-24 months interest free ftw!

12-24 months interest free on payments is an incredible perk. Process of application and process of increasing credit limit was very simple and very quick. There is also an option to get insurance on the card (which is free if there is no amount due) so if anything unfortunate happens, you won't be stuck with a debt.
Definitely recommend this.

Fees very complex

This card is too complex on its fee structure and so I tend to have it as a backup only. If I purchase an item i pay it off very quickly so I do not incur the very high penalty fees

It serves a purpose

I used Latitude as it was the only option for interest free on my purchase. I had a couple of issues signing up to the online portal, it was exactly easy and took a couple of calls to resolve. It’s disappointing they charge you 95 cents if you chose to via BPAY. They only free digital method is to log on to their portal and do a one-off Direct debit. They clearly make it less easier for you to pay on time so they can get you with late fees and extra interest. It would be great when the government makes it illegal for these arbitrary fees especially when paying with BPAY.
Anyway, I’ve closed the account, all I can say is they were a means to an end

Terrible Customer Service

This is a great card for interest free but the lack of customer service that comes with it is not worth it. The calls are all handled from an OS company with terrible line quality. You can barely hear or get cut off frequently. I have been chasing a refund for over two weeks now and each time I speak to someone they take no longer than 5mins to look at my account and just say call the company who did the refund we don't have it. The refunding company has even contacted them to try and resolve as their records show it has been received by Gem Visa.

Correspondence from Latitude Gem Visa

I have asked repeatedly for a statement and when my first payment is due but get no response. I get lots of emails from them but they have never responded to my requests for account details. Even when I use the App it tells me nothing more than the credit limit I have received.

Miss guide by email

I am happy to use gem card but recently I noticed that I get an email from gem card that I get 24 months interest-free when I buy from Apple but when I paid I get only 6 months which I think not appropriate.

Great deals

I love using this card up to 50 months interest free in so many stores plus buyer protection if you find an item you purchased cheaper somewhere else. Worth it !!!

Great Card for bigger purchases

It's my go-to card for for bigger annual costs (car rego etc.)
Interest free for 6 months makes it a breeze to pay the balance off with little to no stress.

Useful card

24 months interest free on my Iphone 12 Pro, it makes it a bit easier to keep up with technology.
Easy to set up and this is my second large purchase with the card

This card is a gem changer!

I highly recommend this card. 6 months interest free on purchases over $240 with a $99 annual fee is worth every penny. This is my go-to credit card and I wouldn't use anything else!

This is good

I didn’t use it overseas as I am not sure if I can use it for purchases made in other countries. I am not sure on how the interest rate works if the card is used overseas.

Need better customer care assistance

Need to improve your customers care assistance better. It's terrible customers assistance, it's hard to make them understand, end up with pissed off. Rest other services are awesome and fantastic

Very confusing, what to do

I went to JB Hi-Fi to buy some stuff they suggested 50 months interest-free got me all hooked up with a gem credit card and that's all I was told I've got no idea how to pay it off I still haven't received an email or anything on how I set up a payment for this account but they give me the money no drama

Fees that debit your account for payment of Card

How is it with electronic payments from my personal account take days to process? For 3 to 5 days there after the online facility to debit your personal account for a payment remains unreachable. Wrong, just wrong. Do better! And a fee for using Bill Pay? Really? With interest rates way over the top on most of your issued cards you could easily wear the small cost yourselves.

Good to have backup like this

No fuss everywhere I went accepted this card and rates are acceptable. I do have other options and cards but prefer my gem visa. I would recommend Latitude Gem to my family and friends. And the interest free period is excellent.

Thank you. My purchase changed my life

It was just great to know that gen visa was there to help me out unexpectedly. When I recently applied for more credit it was easy and quick. Thanks again

No interest, tick, but watch the annual fee

This is a nice interest free loan if you're regular with your repayments. Unfortunately, nobody told me there was a $99 annual fee until after my product was delivered. I now fully intend paying off this debt within 12 months, instead of my 24 month term, because I don't want to be slugged with another $99 annual fee.

Excellent on major purchases!!

Really useful for those big ticket items . Stops impulse buys with interest free for 90 days on items over 250.00 which is great especially for me . Handy for Christmas and birthdays .

Excellent back up card for everyday purchases

Mainly use when I want to buy something now and then pay card down , large purchases usually allow interest free over six or more month by arrangement which is handy . Interest rate is high being only downfall if you do not pay card on time .

Highly recommend Lattitude Gem

The process from the application to shopping was easy and fast. I just used my phone number and licence and the shopping was as easy as using a credit or debit card. Highly recommend.

It could be better

I have been using the GEM card for a long time and there have never been any problems for payments or services, I am unpleasantly surprised that after so many years it is not possible to increase the limit on the card even though I am a regular customer.

Gem Visa

The whole process very easy and pleasant. Probably my only critique. Even after receiving card and paperwork. Also setting my GEM Account. There is no where it list the info payment details. To make advanced payments if wanted..

Perfect for what I use the credit card

I haven't used the card for overseas transactions, but I use the card for bigger purchases which allow me to pay off the item over a reasonable time and repayment amount.
