Mozo snapshot

Can a credit card really be kind to cardholders? Well, the NAB Low Rate Credit Card has a 0% p.a. balance transfer rate for 26 months (and then 21.74% p.a.) and there's also an annual fee waiver for the first year (usually $59) and up to 55 days interest free.

Key features

The NAB Low Rate Credit Card hits the ground running with a 12.99% p.a. purchase rate which is fairly standard for a low rate card. The annual fee is also a relatively low $59, but NAB will actually waive this for the first year for new cardholders.

The late payment fee is $15 - hard to believe when loads of other cards will whack you with penalties of $35 and up - but with 55 days interest-free, you'd never stray into late-payment territory, right? And the fee for running over the limit? Nada.

It's a Visa card so you'll be able to Tap and Go on purchases under $100 and use it anywhere in the world where Visa is accepted. Keep in mind that overseas transactions (in person and online) will attract a 3% foreign exchange margin.


Perhaps best of all, well for credit card users with existing debt, is the 0% balance transfer rate for 26 months. Just bear in mind a that a one-off 2% balance transfer fee does apply, and once that 26 month period is over the rate will revert to 21.74% p.a.

Who is it good for

This card could be a solid option for people looking for a relatively low rate, low fee card, or for anyone looking to get on top of their card debt over a longer timeframe.

Any catches

Like most credit cards, the NAB Low Rate credit card has a high cash advance rate (21.74% p.a.) which will start accruing interest immediately if you withdraw cash using the card.
