Mozo snapshot

The Bank First Visa Platinum is a fantastic low-cost, high value credit card and 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award recipient for best Low Rate Platinum Credit Card. The 9.84% purchase rate is one of the lowest around, plus if you are a new Bank First customer you could receive 0% for the first 6 months. 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. And in addition, new customers could benefit from 0% interest for the first 6 months of owning the card. To be eligible for the offer you need to apply before 31 December 2020 and be approved by 29 January 2021. 

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.

    A good all round card although no rewards program.

    Good customer service, good all round card and easy access. One improvement would be a rewards program.
