Mozo Review   Bendigo Bank Low Rate First Mastercard Review

Last updated: 18 January 2019.

What's hot:
  • Very low $29 annual fee

  • 55 interest free days

  • Low 11.99% purchase rate

What's not:
  • Card restricted to 18 - 25 year olds

Mozo snapshot:

If you’re a youngin’ looking for your first credit card, then the Bendigo Bank Low Rate First Mastercard is a great place to start. The card has an incredibly reasonable $29 annual fee, as well as great 11.99% purchase rate and up to 55 interest free days. The only drawback is that you need to be between 18-25 to be eligible.

Key features:

The Bendigo Bank Low Rate First Mastercard has a low purchase rate of 11.99%. This is good not just for credits cards, which can be up above 20%, but it’s pretty competitive amongst other low rate credit cards as well.

If you ever find yourself hopping over to an ATM for some cash out, then you won’t be too put out with only a 13.99% cash advance rate. Plus, there's a very low $29 annual fee, that won't break the bank.

Low annual fee, low purchase rate, good cash advance rate, must have 0 interest free days right? Nope. You still get to enjoy up to 55 interest free days. Furthermore, in a rather unique situation, Bendigo Bank starts charging interest from the statement date, instead of the purchase date, so you save on interest.

If you want to have two cards on the same account, with the Bendigo Bank Low Rate First Mastercard, you are able to have an additional cardholder for no extra costs.

Plus, this card will also give you access to the exclusive rewards that are a part of Mastercard Priceless Cities.

Who it's good for:

People 18-25. The card comes with a lot of the advantages of a low rate card, particularly in the form of it’s 11.99% purchase rate and $29 annual fee. So if you are a young person looking for a budget friendly credit card, then capitalising on this age specific card is a smart move.

Any catches?

The Bendigo Bank Low Rate First Mastercard has a lot of good aspects, but if you’re over 25 years old, you are out of luck, as the card is only available for those 18-25. Instead you might like to check out the Bendigo Bank Low Rate Mastercard.
