Mozo Review   28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard Review

Last updated: 9 May 2019.

What's hot:
  • Mozo Experts Choice Award Winner 2019

  • $0 annual fee

  • 0% currency conversion fee

What's not:
  • High interest rate of 21.99%

  • No rewards

Mozo snapshot:

The 28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard is a great credit card choice for travellers. This is why it was awarded multiple 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Awards, including best Travel Credit Card and best Platinum Travel Credit Card. With no annual fee, no international transaction fees and no currency conversion fees, the 28 Degrees Mastercard could be a great addition to your wallet, so long as you pay off your balance in full each month.

Key features:

On the surface, the 28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard is a pretty standard credit card. It comes with no annual fee, 55 interest free days, an interest rate of 21.99%. But beneath the surface is one of the best travel credit cards in Australia…

One of the greatest strengths of the 28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard is that it has no currency conversion fees, which means you don’t pay extra on top of the foreign exchange rate. That’s a super handy feature that can save you a tonne of money over the span of a lengthy holiday.

Plus, with no overseas transaction fees to worry about, you can buy online at your favourite international retailers or in stores when you’re travelling internationally without paying extra on top of your purchases.

Another handy feature is the Latitude pay any way, which means that in addition to the plastic credit card you can carry around in your wallet, you also have the flexibility to pay using any mobile or wearable device. 

One of the added travel perks of the 28 Degrees Credit Card, not available with other travel credit cards is that you also get free global WI-FI at more than 1 million hotspots around the world with Boingo, which could save you some serious cash on international data-roaming charges. While the service is free to cardholders you will need to register and activate the service via the 28 Degrees website. 

There are also a couple of premium perks for cardholders to enjoy at home, including a 24/7 concierge service and optional Shoppers Protection Insurance.

Who it's good for:

If you travel often or are a dedicated online shopper with favourite retailers from around the world, this card could be the travel-friendly option you’re after.

Any catches?

While this card is great for overseas travel just remember it’s still a credit card! That means if you don’t pay your entire balance off in full each month, you’ll wind up paying interest at the 21.99% purchase rate - which could seriously eat into your next holiday fund!

    28 degrees Platinum MasterCard is awesome for travel. It has no annual fee, no currency exchange fees and no international conversion fees. As long as you're someone who pays off your credit card after your trip, this is a great option. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of a rewards program but I'd prefer to save the money on fees.
