Signature Only Credit and Debit Cards

National Australia Bank is introducing the signature-only card for those with a medical condition or disability who find it challenging to use a PIN. The signature-only card is available as either a debit or credit card on your existing NAB Visa or MasterCard account.  It is also available to new NAB customers as well.

It is believed that the other 3 major banks will have signature-only cards available in the near future.

Ritchies Community Benefit

Save money and help the Queensland Blind Association at the same time!

When shopping at any Ritchies or Ritchies Supa IGA, 1% of your entire bill will be donated to your chosen Club, School or Charity when presenting your free Ritchies Community Benefit Card – at no extra cost to you.

From March, Queensland Blind Association will be participating with Ritchies Community Benefit so that shoppers can help towards our assistance to the blind community. The Ritchies benefit card also gives customers access to cheaper prices to over 2,000 specials – available to cardholders only, so look for the red ‘C.B’ shelf tickets and especially for pensioners, there is a 5% discount on Tuesdays.

Put simply, the more Community Benefit Cardholders supporting the Queensland Blind Association use their card, the more money will be donated each month.

Queensland Locations for Ritchies:

    58 High Street, Boonah
    Shop M1, 3-5 Cupania Street, Daisy Hill
    429 Kingston Road, Logan Central


Recycling of Glasses (sight & reading)

By simply donating your unwanted reading, sight or sunglasses to the Queensland Blind Association, you are helping to improve the eyesight of unfortunate children and adults around the world. Once donated, the Queensland Blind Association distributes the glasses to charity organisations where they can be given to those in need.

Glasses can also be donated by dropping them off to any OPSM, Laubman & Pank or Budget Eyewear Stores across Australia.
