Mozo snapshot

The Bank First Visa Platinum is a fantastic low-cost, high value credit card and 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award recipient for best Low Rate Platinum Credit Card. The 9.59% purchase rate is one of the lowest around. There is also a low $99 annual fee and it comes with international travel benefits like free travel insurance and concierge, just bear in mind the 2.50% foreign exchange charge.

Key features

Bank First's Visa Platinum credit card is almost the definition of value for money. For an annual fee of just $99, customers get a low 9.84% interest rate. Plus, customers receive up to 55 interest-free days on purchases.

For jetsetting customers, the Visa Platinum has added benefits. Customers have access to the 24/7 Visa concierge service, complimentary travel insurance, and they can use the card at over 24 million locations worldwide. Even better, cardholders automatically become members of the Visa Entertainment program, which offers exclusive discounts on theatre, music and movie tickets. Just remember, if you do use the card overseas, you'll incur a 2.50% foreign exchange margin. 

The only obvious downside to the Bank First's Visa Platinum credit card is the 5% minimum repayment amount, which is higher than the market average. This isn't a card you want to rack up a massive debt on.
