Mozo Review   Bank Australia Visa Credit Card Review

Last updated: 18 October 2018.

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

  • 12.39% purchase rate

  • $0 annual fee

  • 55 interest free days

What's not:
  • Limited branches but internet and phone banking available 24/7

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 is 100% free to keep in your wallet with a $0 annual fee and it's got a low purchase rate of 12.39%, so you won't end up paying sky high interest if you occasionally carry over a balance. Plus its got one of the lower foreign exchange fees of all credit cards at 2% making it a good card to take travelling.


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% 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 take your Bank Australia Visa Credit Card overseas or use in Australia where ever Visa cards are accepted. There is a 2% foreign exchange margin for overseas purchases. 

It is best to automate your repayments but it is good to know that bankmecu won't punish you with late payment fees for the occasional late payment.

Who it's good for:

Anyone looking for a simple everyday credit card that can be used here or overseas that wont cost an arm and a leg.

It is also a good card if you do all you don't want regular branch access. There are a limited number of bankmecu branches but internet banking, phone banking and services like Australia post's gyroPost are available so managing your account should be very easy. 

Any catches?

While you can use the credit card overseas, just be aware that if you need an emergency replacement card while travelling, they don't come cheap. It will cost you $US 175 for a replacement card if you are overseas or $20 if you are in Australia. Be sure to pack a back up card or prepaid travel card.
