Taking out a 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Awards for best Low Rate Travel Credit Card and best No Annual Fee Credit Card is Bank First with its budget friendly Visa Classic Credit Card.

Along with its 12.79% 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 12.79% after this period has ended. You’ll also have a 0% purchase rate for the first 6 months before the 12.79% rate kicks in. Just remember you need to apply before 31 December 2020 and be approved before 29 January 2021 to qualify for the offer. 

Plus, there's no annual fee so you won't have to cough up hundred of dollars year-on-year. 

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 is it good for

The Visa Classic Credit Card is a great choice for anyone who’s on the hunt for a low rate card with no annual fee, 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.

    Excellent customer service with good rates.

    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.

    Service is excellent and rates are competitive.

    Charges are minimal, and is easy to use. Service is always about helping the customer, not the bank.
