  • Where do I find the CVV code?

    The CVV code is a code that guarantees the safe use of your card. CVVC stands for Card Verification Value Code, and is also known as CVC or Card Verification Code. The 3-digit code is on the back of your ABN AMRO credit card next to the signature strip. The CVV code minimizes the risk of misuse for post order, telephone and internet transactions.

  • When do I pay interest?

    International Card Services (ICS) does the administration for your ABN AMRO credit card. If you settle the open balance within 21 days, you will not pay any interest. If you do not settle the balance within 21 days, you will pay interest over the open balance.

  • How can I transfer money with my credit card?

    You can transfer money from your ABN AMRO credit card to your bank account through Creditcard Online. Log in and click the tab 'Transfer'. If your balance is sufficient, you will not pay any interest. If your balance if not sufficient, you will start paying interest immediately.
