Mozo Review   Bank of Melbourne Vertigo Platinum Review

Last updated: 23 May 2019.

What's hot:
  • Low 12.99% purchase rate

  • 0% balance transfer rate for 18 months

  • Purchase and price protection

  • 2018 Mozo Experts Choice Award Winner

What's not:
  • $15 late payment fee

Mozo snapshot:

If you’re after a card that provides the privileges associated with a top-level platinum credit card like purchase and price protection, that also delivers a low purchase rate, the Bank of Melbourne Vertigo Platinum Credit Card could be a neat fit for your wallet or purse. This piece of plastic also offers you a 0% interest rate on balance transfers for 18 months, which is ideal if you’ve accrued debt on another credit card. Not to mention, it took out a 2018 Mozo Experts Choice Best Low Rate Platinum Credit Card award. 

Key features:

As we’ve mentioned, one of the major selling points surrounding the Vertigo Platinum Credit Card is its low 12.99% purchase rate. Plus, you’ll get 55 days interest free on purchases you make with this card so long as you pay your balance in full by the end of each billing period.

As far as fees go, there's no annual fee in the first year, but after that you’ll be charged a $99 annual fee to get your hands on this card and if you’re tardy with your repayments you’ll also be subject to a $15 late payment fee. If you take out cash with this card, not only will you immediately start paying interest at the 21.49% cash advance rate but you’ll also incur a 2% or $2.50 cash advance fee. It is also worth mentioning that you’ll be charged a 3.00% foreign exchange margin when using this card overseas.

Bank of Melbourne delivers a range of neat complimentary features with this credit card. First up, you’ll get access to Visa’s 24/7 concierge service to organise your social calendar, book tickets for concerts and gigs and make restaurant reservations. You will also have the luxury of purchase protection insurance with this card, so the costs to replace your new toys will be covered for up to four months from the purchase date. Plus, if you find the product cheaper elsewhere within three weeks of the transaction, you’ll have the benefit of price protection meaning Bank of Melbourne will reimburse you the difference.

And if you're keen to clear some lingering debt from an existing card, the Bank of Melbourne Vertigo Platinum Credit Card comes with a 0% balance transfer rate for 18 months.

Who it's good for:

The Bank of Melbourne’s Vertigo Platinum Credit Card is a great option if you’ve accrued debt on other cards. The 18-month 0% balance transfer rate means you’ll have a couple of years to pay off your transferred debt without worrying about paying any interest on that balance.

Any catches?

Just be aware there is a $15 late payment fee so it might be worth automating your credit card repayments, which should be easy enough with online banking.

    My review is that the online banking is far too hard for older people, we have no idea what to do. Staff try to explain but it is far too complicated a system and is directed for the young ones.
