Mozo Review   Bankwest Breeze Platinum Mastercard Review

Last updated: 12 June 2019.

What's hot:
  • 2019 Travel Credit Card Provider of the Year

  • $0 annual fee in the first year ($99 after)

  • Multiple Mozo Experts Choice Award winner 2019

  • 0% balance transfer offer for 26 months (2% fee)

What's not:
  • $25 late payment fee

Mozo snapshot:

The Bankwest Breeze Platinum Mastercard is a great tool if you're trying to blast an existing credit card debt, with a 0% balance transfer offer for a lengthy 26 months on offer (2% BT fee). It also ticks all the right boxes for an everyday spender, with a low 12.99% ongoing interest rate and minimal fees. Add in no foreign exchange fees on online or international purchases as well as complimentary travel insurance, and this one really is an all rounder. 

In fact, not only was Bankwest named 2019 Travel Credit Card Provider of the Year, the Breeze Platinum Mastercard was awarded three Mozo Experts Choice Awards in 2019 for best Travel Credit Card, best Platinum Travel Credit Card and best Low Rate Travel Credit Card. 

Key features:

The Bankwest Breeze Platinum Mastercard introductory rate of 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 26 months with a 2% balance transfer fee to help you pay off existing debt. Plus, you'll pay no annual fee in the first year ($99 after that) giving you plenty of breathing room to get your balance under control.

Plus, for everyday spenders, there's a low ongoing interest rate of 12.99%. You can also use this card to pay via Google Pay and Bankwest's Mozo Experts Choice winning payment ring, the Bankwest Halo.

The Breeze Platinum Mastercard is one of the few credit cards in the market that doesn't charge foreign exchange fees on purchases so you can put those savings towards more shopping or holiday fun. Many cards charge around 3% fees on foreign exchange purchases, so over a 10 day overseas holiday this can add up to several hundreds of dollars in savings.

You'll also get complimentary international travel insurance for you and the family if you use your card to purchase return tickets. Coverage includes unlimited medical, 6 month travel period, high $30,000 limit for loss, theft or damage and rental car excess.

Additional insurance coverage provided with Bankwest Breeze Platinum Mastercard is the relatively new purchase price guarantee insurance. If you buy an item on your card and within 21 days you see it advertised cheaper you can claim the difference. There must be a $75 or more difference in price and the maximum claim is $500 but one to definitely remember around sale time.

Other standard insurance coverage includes 3 month purchase security cover, up to 12 month extended warranty and interstate flight inconvenience insurance.

Who it's good for:

If you've got a lingering balance you're ready to get rid of once and for all, then the 26 months interest free on the Bankwest Breeze Platinum Mastercard makes it a very tempting choice. 

This one's also a good pick for travellers, since there's no foreign transaction fees to worry about, plus free travel insurance.

Any catches?

Remember to setup automatic monthly repayment reminders with Bankwest "Easy Alerts", as there's a $25 late payment fee. And if you are clearing some debt with the balance transfer offer, keep in mind there's a 2% balance transfer fee to budget for.

    Great 0% balance transfer

    Transferred my ANZ credit card balance to Bank West when they were offering a 0% for 13 months...

    Transferred my ANZ credit card balance to Bank West when they were offering a 0% for 13 months last year. I have repaid it in full this week and saved myself around $1,500 in the process. Great service, very helpful when I called them.
