Frequently Asked Questions
If I become a local do I get special deals?

If I dial the 0800 SMITHS (764847) number, does that put me through to my local branch?
Not straight away no, you will reach our contact center first, who are more than happy to help with a variety of information including account balances and booking deliveries. If there is something they can’t help you with, they will put you through to the correct department at the store you need.

What is an EasyCard?
EasyCard is Smith City’s own finance product. Our EasyCard works just like a credit card – pay in full on the due date and pay no interest, or pay as little as $10 or 3% of the balance, with interest charged on the next statement. You can apply for an EasyCard online and our Finance Team will be in touch to discuss your application.
