Why choose a low rate credit card?
Having a low rate card in your wallet means you usually won’t get all the bells and whistles like extra perks and a rewards scheme, but if you’re the type of person to occasionally carry a balance for a few months, a low-interest rate can be a lifesaver.
“While the best strategy is always to pay your credit card off in full before the due date, if you know you’re likely to carry a balance on you can minimise the impact interest has on your savings by choosing a card with a low rate. There’s a big difference between paying 8.99% interest and 24.99%,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont.
