Key features

Low interest rate. Sound good right? That’s because it is. With only a 11.99% purchase rate, you’ll be able to spend freely on Great Southern Bank’s Low Rate credit card, knowing you won’t break the bank with massive interest payments, even if you do miss a monthly repayment or two.

Plus with the $0 annual fee in the first year ($49 after) and up to 55 interest free days on purchases, you’ve got a bit of breathing room to get your finances in order and pay off your bill each month.

There are times when you might want to share a credit card account with a family member or partner to keep your finances simple. This card let’s you have up to 9 additional cardholders for free.

And if you need to move some debt from another card onto this one, for the first 25 months there’ll be a 0% balance transfer fee. After that it’ll shoot up to a steep 21.74%, so it would be wise to have a payment plan in place to avoid having a leftover balance when the zero interest period ends.

Any catches

While Mozo doesn’t suggest getting cash out on your credit card unless there is no other option, the 21.74% interest on cash withdrawals makes this something you should try extra hard to avoid.

Also after 25 months of 0% balance transfer rate, don’t get stuck with a leftover balance on this card when the rate changes to 21.74%.
