Key features

No matter whether you’re after a credit limit of $500 or $25,000, the Low Rate Credit Card from Illawarra Credit Union is an attractive option for a range of credit card customers. 

The card comes with a low 8.99% purchase rate, up to 45 interest free days and no fee if you opt to have a secondary cardholder. But that’s not all, Illawarra Credit Union will also waive the $50 annual fee in the first year. 

Just bear in mind that if you take cash out of an ATM with this credit card, you’ll be slapped with a higher 15.88% cash advance rate and a $2 cash advance fee. 

And while we are on the topic of fees, also remember there is a 3.00% overseas transaction fee, $20 late payment fee and a $50 annual fee (from the second year of holding the card and onwards).
