Mozo Review   Bendigo Bank RSPCA Rescue Mastercard Review

Last updated: 24 August 2018.

What's hot:
  • Built-in RSPCA donation program

  • 55 interest-free days

What's not:
  • High 21.99% cash advance rate

Mozo snapshot:

The Bendigo Bank RSPCA Rescue card is a great option for customers looking for an everyday credit card which allows them to be charitable towards their furry friends. Bendigo donates a percentage of its profits from the Rescue card to the RSPCA every year - since 2005, they have donated over $1.5 million.

Key features:

For the low annual fee of $45, Bendigo’s RSPCA Rescue credit card gives customers the opportunity to combine value with donating to a great cause.

With a purchase rate of 19.99% this is a credit card suited to anyone who is dedicated to paying off their balance in full each month by taking advantage of 55 interest-free days. It is a good idea to set up automatic repayments because there is a $15 late payment fee.

As part of the Mastercard network you’ll be able to use the RSPCA Rescue card at over 43 million locations around the world, including at outlets with contactless payment options with the option to Tap & go for purchases under $100.

One of the best perks with the Bendigo Bank RSPCA rescue card is that it also provides access to the Mastercard Priceless Cities program which offers exclusive deals on everything from accommodation to restaurants at hundreds of cities around the world. If you do take your card with you on your next overseas vacation just be aware that any purchases made using your card will have a 3.00% foreign exchange margin added to the AUD amount, so make sure you budget for this.

You’ll also have the option to  personalise  your card by choosing between Genie the cat and Frosty the dog for your  card background, and with the additional option of a $5 tax-deductible monthly donation toward the RSPCA’s Adoptapet program you’ll be able to help Genie and Frosty’s furry friends find a happy home.

Who it's good for:

The RSPCA Rescue is a great option for animal lovers looking for a straightforward credit card which gives them the opportunity to donate to a worthy cause.

Any catches?

With the high cash advance rate of 21.99% you’ll want to avoid using the card for cash withdrawals whenever possible.

    My bank is local and if there are any discrepancies of any kind I get a personal phone call. They are always friendly and helpful in every way. You always receive personal assistance and I have not known this kind of banking service for a very long time. I love my bank and will stay with them for the great service I receive.

    I know little about my credit card. I do not like the swipe and pay feature. I believe to easy for fraud to occur. Do like the contribution to RSPCA.

    A set percentage of your balance on the card are donated to the RSPCA each month. They never call to hassle you about increasing your credit limit either.
