    Two card designs to choose from

    With the PostFinance Mastercard Value, you can choose between two different card designs:

  • With the unlimited cash bonus programme for the PostFinance Mastercard Value, you can benefit from a turnover reimbursement of 0.3%. In the first year you receive a double bonus. The payment is made every six months (in June and December) directly to the private account. Cash withdrawals and debits for interest, prices and fees are not taken into account for calculating the turnover reimbursement.

    Cashback on the sales turnover achieved:

    • 0.6% in the first year
    • 0.3% from the second year
  • Contactless payment

      The contactless function allows you to pay amounts of up to CHF 80 without entering your PIN. Simply hold your card against the payment terminal, and your purchase is complete. For amounts above the limit, you will also need to enter your PIN.


    Put on your SwatchPAY! watch and simply hold up your wrist at the checkout or vending machine – that’s how quick and cool it is to make contactless payments. Link your PostFinance Mastercard with SwatchPAY! and off you go. Time is money.

    Safe use of PostFinance credit/prepaid cards

    • Sign the back of the card immediately upon receipt.
    • Always keep the card in a safe place and check regularly to ensure that it is still in your possession, particularly when travelling.
    • If your card is lost, stolen or withheld by an ATM, or if you suspect it is being misused, you should ask PostFinance Customer Service to block it immediately. Alternatively, you can block the card yourself in your e-finance.
    • Keep the Customer Service telephone number (blocking center) to hand at all times by storing it in your mobile phone and carrying the emergency notes below.
    • Check your monthly bill immediately upon receipt against your purchase receipts, which should be retained for this purpose. Report any discrepancies to PostFinance Customer Service, in particular debits resulting from misuse of the card, within 30 days of receipt of your monthly bill.
    • Destroy your old card by cutting through the magnetic strip, chip and hologram.
  • Should you lose your card, we are there for you 24/7. We will replace the card as quickly as possible, usually within three working days.
