The main difference is in the ease of registering part of the invoice. Under the payroll loan modality, the margin of 5% is automatically discounted from the benefit sheet.
Why choose the Caixa Simples card?
To start, Caixa Simples is free of charge. That is, it does not have that monthly usage charge. There is only a fee of R $ 15 referring to the issuance of the card, paid only once. The amount can even be paid in up to 3x in the invoice. According to the state-owned company, the contractor will be responsible only for spending on purchases.
In the case of contracting, there is no consultation with the SPC or Serasa, being available for negatives. Another advantage is seen in interest rates, considered up to 3x lower than those of a conventional card. To give you an idea, the service charges only 2.85% per month for those who use the rotary.
Cash card benefits
Those who request Caixa Simples can convert up to 95% of the credit limit into cash in the account. For this, the user must request the advantage at the time of hiring. On the amount, revolving interest + IOF is charged from the day of credit to the day of payment of the invoice.
Revolving interest is applied on top of the remaining amount of the previous invoice, if it has not been paid in full, with an additional one. However, that amount is always less than the debt amount. The Tax on Credit, Exchange and Insurance Operations (IOF), on the other hand, is a tax on credit, foreign exchange and insurance operations and operations related to bonds and securities.
With the card, the user has technical assistance specialized in small domestic repairs, such as electrical and hydraulic overhauls, installation of shelves, curtains and blinds and cleaning of the water tank, which can be activated up to three times a year. Also, through Club Elo Mania Caixa, has access to various products and services with discounts by the bank.
As for the invoice, it is completely digital and forwarded to the registered email. The user can consult it on the App Cartão Caixa, Internet Banking or Mobile Banking Caixa. And it can be paid at self-service terminals, online, lottery or through the banking network.
