You can use your NAB StraightUp Card everywhere Visa is accepted – this includes online or overseas purchases.
On a standard credit card, you’re able to withdraw cash or complete gambling transactions. However, the NAB StraightUp Card comes with additional blocks on these types of transactions – helping you stay in control.
Cash advance block
Cash advances include withdrawing cash or transferring money from your credit card to another account. They also include other transactions that we consider to be the equivalent of withdrawing cash from your account, such as the purchase of traveller’s cheques or other substitutes for cash (such as crypto-currency).
In some limited situations, the cash advance block may not apply. This includes where we’re unable to identify a cash advance transaction because of the way the merchant classifies it, when our systems are down or when the merchant terminal is unable to obtain online authorisations. The cash advance block will not apply where you complete the transaction through a linked transaction account and ‘SAV’ or ‘CHQ’ is selected.
Gambling transactions are blocked
This is in place to give you greater control over your spending. This restriction blocks most gambling transactions including sports betting, casino games, lottery operators and online gambling (and includes gambling refunds and winnings). It will apply where you tap to pay, or select ‘Credit’ or ‘CR’ or use your card number to complete the transaction.
In some limited situations, gambling transactions may not be blocked. This includes where you complete the transaction through a linked transaction account and ‘SAV’ or ‘CHQ’ is selected, transactions with merchants who are not identified by us as gambling merchants, transactions made when our systems are down or when the merchant terminal is unable to obtain online authorisations.
