Mozo Review   Bank Australia Visa Credit Card Review

Last updated: 13 September 2019.

What's hot:
  • Multiple Mozo Experts Choice Award Winner 2018

  • 12.39% p.a. purchase rate

  • $0 annual fee

  • 55 interest free days

What's not:
  • 3.00% foreign exchange margin

Mozo snapshot:

The Bank Australia Visa Credit Card is a great all round option for anyone after a low cost card option, which is why it was awarded a 2018 Mozo Experts Choice Award for best No Annual Fee Credit Card. It's a budget-friendly piece of plastic to keep in your wallet with a $0 annual fee, and it's got a low purchase rate of 12.39% p.a., so you won't end up paying sky high interest if you occasionally carry over a balance. 


Key features:

With the Bank Australia Visa Credit Card, if you pay off your balance in full each month, you will get up to 55 days interest free. The standard interest rate for the card is 12.39% p.a. for both purchases and cash advances. Just be aware that there are no interest free days on cash advances, so only do this sparingly; preferably use your ATM or debit card instead. 

You can use your Bank Australia Visa Credit Card in Australia wherever Visa cards are accepted, or you could take it abroad, although bear in mind there is a 3% foreign exchange margin for overseas purchases. 

While it's a great idea to automate your repayments, Bank Australia won't punish you with late payment fees for the occasional late repayment.

And you won't even need to carry the physical card on you while you shop, as the Bank Australia Visa Credit Card lets you pay with your smartphone. You can link the credit card to any of the following digital wallets: Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay. 

Who it's good for:

The Bank Australia Visa Credit Card suits Aussies looking for a plastic that won't cost them an arm and a leg. It's also a good card if you don't want to worry about missing a repayment here and there.   

Any catches?

While you can use the Bank Australia Visa Credit Card abroad, it might be better to leave this card at home, as you will be charged a 3% foreign exchange margin. A prepaid travel card could be a more inexpensive option to pack in your suitcase before you head overseas.
