Got some questions about our membership packages or about memberships in general? You’ll find answers to many of your questions below:
Easy Pay (formerly Smart Pay) is the Club’s membership payment plan option allowing you to pay for your membership in one lump sum or in equal monthly instalments over 6 or 10 months. The payment will be taken on the 15th of each month via a nominated VISA or Mastercard. If the 15th of the month falls on a weekend, the GC SUNS Easy Pay deduction will be transacted on the next business day.
Members renewing on the GC SUNS Easy Pay upfront option will have their annual membership fee deducted in full on 15 November 2016. Any new members who sign on to the upfront plan after this date will have their full payment deducted upon receipt of signing up.
Easy Pay makes renewing your membership easier than ever with an automatic rollover each year. If you are a reserved seat holder you never need to worry about having to renew your membership by the cut-off date. Plus if you hold a guaranteed Grand Final ticket membership (Platinum & Gold A), signing up with Easy Pay means you won’t ever lose this privilege.
It also allows you to pay off your membership on a monthly basis with no administration fees involved.
You can ‘opt in’ to the GC SUNS Easy Pay via the payment section on your renewal form. Alternatively, you can contact your Membership Team on 1300 784 436.
