Mozo snapshot

Bank of Queensland's Low Rate credit card offers all the utility of a Visa credit card (including Visa Paywave) with a standard, low 13.49% purchase rate that may put even the most prudent of credit card users mind at ease. Plus there is a 0% balance transfer rate for 6 months which could help cardholders with exisiting debt pay it off faster (and interest free).

Key features

The 13.49% purchase rate and relatively low $55 annual fee justify this credit card's 'Low Rate' title, but the practicalities don't stop there.

If you're looking to move any existing credit card debt over to a better rate the 0% balance transfer offer for 6 months could be the answer. If you take up the balance transfer, be sure to pay it off in the interest free period, otherwise you will find yourself paying the high cash advance rate of 21.49% on the remaining balance.

And although the Bank of Queensland Low Rate Visa offers 55 days interest-free on purchases, there is a sure fire way to make sure your balance is paid off by the deadline. Sign up for Easi-Pay and have your repayments automatically deducted straight from your everyday transaction account at the end of every month.

However, using the Bank of Queensland Low Rate Visa at the hole in the wall could leave a large hole in your pocket, with all cash advances charged at a high 21.49%.

Similarly, consider the 3.40% foreign exchange margin before using your Bank of Queensland Low Rate card to pay for goods when overseas or shopping online.

Who is it good for

Any catches

If you take up the balance transfer offer be sure to keep your eye on the diary or you could find yourself paying the high 21.49% cash advance rate at the end of the 6 month intro period.

    Great credit card, poor statement and bill deliver

    Great credit card, poor statement and bill delivery. The fees are explained well and very manageable. I haven't received a bill or statement for a few months though.
