Mozo Review   Bank First Visa Classic Credit Card Review

Last updated: 18 October 2018.

What's hot:
  • Mozo 2018 Experts Choice winner

  • Low 12.94% purchase rate

  • 0% balance transfer and purchase rate for the first 6 months

What's not:
  • $20 late payment fee

  • $2.50 cash advance fee

Mozo snapshot:

Taking out an Experts Choice Award for No Annual Fee Credit Card is Bank First with its budget friendly Visa Classic Credit Card. Along with its 12.94% purchase rate, you’ll also have no annual fee, up to 55 interest free days and a 0% balance transfer and purchase rate for the first 6 months! So if you’re an Aussie with a frequent spending habit or you just need a piece of plastic to help get you through the day, the Bank First Visa Classic Credit Card may be your answer.

Key features:

The Visa Classic Credit Card will befriend any budget conscious spender, thanks to its no annual fee. If you’re looking to clear debt, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a 0% balance transfer for the first 6 months - which will then become 12.94% after this period has ended. You’ll also have a 0% purchase rate for the first 6 months before the 12.94% rate kicks in. 

If you ever need to postpone paying your full balance, there’s no need to sweat with the minimum repayment amount of $20, or 5%. However, there is a small cash advance fee of $2.50, along with the interest you will be charged, so if you’re someone who always likes to have cash handy, this minor fee could add up over time. And if you’re a frequent traveller or addicted to international online shopping, be sure to budget for the 2.5% foreign exchange margin. 


Who it's good for:

The Visa Classic Credit Card is a great choice for anyone who’s on the hunt for a low rate card, and isn’t interested in any additional extras.

Any catches?

While Bank First aims to provide simplicity with this low rate card, you’ll need to make sure you repay the minimal balance on time, or face the $20 late payment fee. And if you constantly find yourself on international online stores, the 2.5% foreign margin fee may take a swing at your bank account over time.

    I can talk to a consultant easily either via phone, online or by visiting the bank. If I visit the bank, I am asked re the issue and within seconds I am speaking to someone. There is usually no lining up or waiting periods to talk to someone.
