Mozo snapshot

An Australian first, Amex’s low rate credit card boasts a very competitive interest rate of just 10.99% - the lowest you’ll see across American Express credit card products. Plus it comes with no annual fee, so it's little surprise that the card was awarded a 2023 Mozo Experts Choice awards for best No Annual Fee Credit Card.

Key features

There's no doubting it, the best feature of this card is the low 10.99% purchase rate. It’s not the lowest you’ll find in the market, but it is pretty close, which is something special coming from 2022 Mozo Credit Card Provider of the Year American Express who pride themselves on going above and beyond on service and extras.

The card has no annual fee and up to four additional card members at no extra cost. However, cash advances will incur a $2.50 or 2% fee (whichever is greater), a $6 per dishonour, and a $30 late fee.

It also comes with American Express’ card refund and card purchase cover meaning that Amex will repair or refund the cost of eligible items bought on the card that is damaged or stolen within 90 days of purchase. There is also up to 55 days interest-free on purchases.

Who is it good for

For shoppers who want the glamorous feeling of paying by Amex card at the checkout without the gold plated price tag, this is the card for you.

Any catches

While this card might be a good option to use at home here in Australia, remember that if you decide to use it to spend overseas you'll face a 3.00% foreign exchange margin.
