The Bankwest Zero Platinum Credit Card took out a 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award for best No Annual Fee Platinum Credit Card and best Balance Transfer Platinum Credit Card. So what makes it a top credit card for your wallet, and our judges love it so much? 

Well no annual fee, up to 55 interest free days and no foreign exchange margin on international purchases helps. Plus for no extra cost you'll get top premium benefits like complimentary overseas travel insurance, interstate flight inconvenience insurance and price guarantee insurance.

Key features

The Bankwest Zero Platinum Credit Card has a standard purchase rate of 17.99% p.a. but comes with up to 55 interest free days. It has no annual fee which really sets it apart from many other platinum cards in the market and it's a great card to take travelling or use when shopping online as there is no foreign transaction fee.

If you have debt on another card you want to transfer over there is a 2.99% p.a. balance transfer offer for 9 months, after which any remaining balance will revert to the standard 17.99% p.a. purchase rate.

The platinum perks of the Zero Platinum card include complimentary overseas travel insurance for you and the family. You'll be covered for the basics, but there are some policy limits and exclusions so be sure to check out the policy details before travelling.

The card also has extended warranty, purchase security and price guarantee insurance, which means that if you find a cheaper printed purchase price within 21 days you can claim the difference (minimum of $75).

Any catches

Be sure to automate your payments or set up "Easy Alerts" notifications in your Bankwest app, or you could be up for a $25 late payment fee.

    Good account options and great customer service.

    I use my Zero Platinum Mastercard for almost all purchases. The app allows me to track my spending, and how much I need to pay to avoid interest fees. So easy.

    Zero annual fee or overseas transaction fees

    I got this credit card because it has no annual fee and no transaction fees for international purchases, so it's excellent value especially if you do lots of travelling or shopping online from overseas sites. The application process was pretty smooth and Bankwest have been easy to deal with. I don't pay interest on my credit card so don't need to worry about the rate, but I think it is pretty high. I'd say this is a good card for those who are good at managing their credit card spending and paying it off on time, and don't want to be hit with annoying fees.
