Mozo Review   BankSA Vertigo Review

Last updated: 4 October 2019.

What's hot:
  • 0% balance transfer rate for first 18 months

  • Up to 55 interest free days

  • 13.99% purchase rate

What's not:
  • 21.49% cash advance rate

Mozo snapshot:

If you’re looking for a card to help you get a handle on existing credit card debt, then the BankSA Vertigo may be the card for you. The card comes with a 0% balance transfer rate for 18 months. There’s also up to 55 interest free days, a 13.99% purchase rate and a $55 annual fee that make this a pretty budget-friendly piece of plastic.

Key features:

The BankSA Vertigo is a budget-friendly option for users who want the convenience of plastic without the high price tag. It comes with a relatively low annual fee of $55 and interest rate of 13.99%. And what's more, you'll get up to 55 interest free days each month before you pay any interest at all.

For cardholders wanting to get a handle on a lingering balance, one of the best features that the BankSA Vertigo credit card is equipped with is the 18 months of 0% balance transfer rate. So, if you’re looking to blast your credit card debt, this offer gives you some breathing room to pay it off, before you start to pay any interest on it.

Want to share the card with a significant other? No problem! You can get an additional cardholder, for no additional fee.

Who it's good for:

The BankSA Vertigo is great for someone who is looking to blast existing credit card debt with the 18 months 0% balance transfer offer, or just wants a low cost piece of plastic for everyday spending.

Any catches?

While the balance transfer rate is 0% for the first 18 months, after that it’ll shoot up to the balance transfer rate of 21.49% for any lingering balance, which is a rate you want to avoid paying. So make sure you have a payment plan in place to clear your balance before the zero interest period runs out.
