Debit Mastercard

Shop when and where you want 

Live life in the moment and manage your money wherever life takes you. At SBS Bank we have simple and practical tools to make everyday money management simple and convenient. So whether it’s paying bills, saving, shopping online, buying lunch or travelling overseas, it’s easy.   


With your SBS Bank Debit Mastercard®you can make purchases in-person and online around the world. Payments are made directly from your account, so you always know how much money you have left. You’re using your own money, so there are no Credit Card interest rates or bills at the end of the month. Just a flexible way to make payments in your pocket. It’s safe, convenient and easy.

on the go 

Use your Debit Mastercard® to pay for things using Eftpos at retailers across New Zealand. With Mastercard® contactless technology you can also choose to use Tap & Go™ for payments up to $80 without having to swipe the magnetic strip or insert the chip on your card. 


Use your Debit Mastercard® to pay online for clothing, travel, movie tickets and much more. You can use your Debit Mastercard® on any website which accepts Mastercard. 

around the world

Shop wherever Mastercard® is accepted. That is over 32 million retailers in over 210 countries around the world. You can also access your own funds from your everyday accounts at more than 1.8 million ATMs around the world. Use your Debit Mastercard® with travellers cheques or foreign currency as you travel the world. 

Please advise us if you're going overseas, where you'll be travelling, how long for and how we can contact you while you're away. We can’t guarantee that things will always be perfect, so we recommend our members travel with more than one method of payment, just in case.

safe and secure  

Shop with confidence, your SBS Bank Debit Mastercard® has chip and PIN protection. Due to increasing fraud, some transactions may be declined to protect your funds. At times, this may limit your ability to complete transactions at some merchants (EFTPOS terminals), and ATMs. If you are making a legitimate transaction online or in store that is declined please contact us immediately by phone 0800 727 2265, or +64 3 211 0700 overseas or otherwise using Secure Message.
