Mozo snapshot

From the 8.99% purchase rate to the 55 interest-free days on purchases and the low annual fee, the Low Rate Credit Card from Community First Credit Union comes with all the features of a budget-friendly credit card. In fact, in 2020 it was named a Mozo Experts Choice Award winner in the Best Low Rate Credit Card category.

Key features

If you’re likely to carry a balance each month but you're looking to reduce your costs, then the Low Rate Credit Card from Community First Credit Union could be one of the better options out there. At just 8.99%, the purchase rate is one of the lowest on the market, plus the annual fee is a relatively low $40. 

If you avoid carrying a balance each statement period then you’ll be able to take advantage of 55 interest-free days on your purchases. And speaking of purchases, you’ll be able to make them using your physical Low Rate Credit Card, or via your phone with either Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay. 

Need a credit card you can use internationally? While you’ll definitely be able to take the Low Rate Credit Card on your next trip abroad, just bear in mind that there is a 3.00% foreign exchange margin for overseas purchases. 

It’s also worth mentioning that you’ll only be able to have one additional cardholder, and you’ll want to avoid making late payments otherwise you’ll be hit with a $20 fee.

Who is it good for

Given the low purchase rate and annual fee, Community First Credit Union’s Low Rate Credit Card really is one of the more reasonable credit card options around for cardholders wanting to minimise the amount of interest and fees they pay.

Any catches

While the cash rate on this card is also on the lower side (comparatively) at 8.99%, it’s generally advisable to use a debit card when withdrawing your own money to avoid paying more than you need to.
