When it comes to finding the right credit card, there are lots of different factors to consider. 

But as they say, “when in doubt, call an expert”. And that’s just what we did … 

To help make the decision-making process a little easier for you, we’ve put together a list of some of the 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Credit Card Award-winners*. To receive an award, each of the following winners underwent a tough assessment process conducted by our Mozo Expert judges who analysed 215 personal and 45 business credit card products from 72 Australian financial institutions in order to find those that offered the best value and features.

So, if you’re ready to find the right piece of plastic for you, then here are five of Australia’s top credit cards that have the Mozo tick of approval:
