Desjardins credit card cheques are considered as cash advances. As such, they are not subject to the 21-day grace period and BONUSDOLLARS cannot be accumulated.

Desjardins credit card cheques are subject to credit charges that are based on the average daily balance from the date they are posted to the statement of account, at the annual interest rate applicable for the period covered by the statement of account.

Cash advances and Desjardins credit card cheques are subject to credit charges that are based on the average daily balance from the date they appear on the account until they are fully paid. Credit charges are based on the current interest rate for the period of the statement of account.

These charges apply to cash advances made at ATMs, on AccèsD or at a teller of any financial institution.

Cash advances made in foreign currency are subject to an additional 1.8%, currency conversion charge which is added to the daily exchange rate.

The cash advance option may be removed from an account because late payments were made in the past year or a credit file shows a high debt ratio.

However, accounts are re-evaluated periodically. Therefore, by making payments on time and respecting the credit limit, the cash advance option may eventually be reactivated on an account.

Make sure to use a PLUS* network ATM. This network is the equivalent of Canada's InteracMD network and recognizes 5-digit PINs, like the one used for your card. If you're asked to enter a 4-digit PIN during a transaction, enter your 5-digit PIN anyway.
