The Hume Value Visa card comes with a low purchase rate of 11.95%. If you pay your balance off in full each month you'll get up to 55 interest free days. It has zero annual fees so, if you're looking to keep a credit card in your wallet for occasional purposes then this is a great choice as it won't cost you a cent in annual fees.
The card is connected via the Visa network so you can make purchases in Australia and overseas whereever Visa is accepted. The card is chip enabled so for purchases under $100 you can just tap and pay. If you're using the card overseas or shopping online at international stores, there is a 2.85% foreign exchange margin on the AUD purchase amount. This is standard for many credit cards.
While cash advances are available with the Value Visa, the interest rate charged is higher at 17.95%. And unlike purchases, with cash advances there are no interest free days, you will start paying interest immediately.
You can get an additional card at no extra cost.
Who it's good for:
Everyone. Why pay an annual fee on a credit card when you don't have to?
You'll need to be at least 18 years old and an Australia citizen or permanent resident to be approved.
There is a $20 late payment fee, so make sure that you set up automatic monthly repayments to avoid this.
