NAB Low Rate Card Review

Rates and fees information correct as at 24 June 2018.

Review published: 16 January 2012

What's hot:

  • $59 annual card fee

  • 0% p.a on purchases for 6 months

  • Up to 55 interest free days

What's not:

  • 21.74% cash advance rate

  • No reward program

Mozo snapshot:

Can a credit card really be kind to cardholders? The NAB Low Rate credit card has a 0% purchase rate for 6 months and there is also a friendly low annual fee of $59 and you won't be punished (well, not too harshly) for the odd late bill.

Key features:

No matter what your credit requirements are this year, the NAB Low Rate card could suit you.

The purchase rate for the NAB Low Rate is 13.99% which is fairly standard for a low rate card, but the best part is, for the first 6 months you can put purchases on your card interest free.

The late payment fee is $15 - hard to believe when 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 limit? Nada.

It's a Visa card so you can Tap and Go for purchases under $100 and use it anywhere in the world where Visa is accepted. Overseas transactions (in person and online) will attract a 3% foreign exchange margin.

Who it's good for:

Those looking to repay debt over a long timeframe.

Any catches?

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

About NAB

National Australia Bank is one of the big four banks who provide a large variety of financial products to the Australian Community. In recent times NAB has set itself apart from the other big four banks; by expanding their ATM network, removing many fees and maintaining low standard variable home loan rates. NAB's changes to its financial products have made their home loan, credit card, loans, savings accounts and personal loans more competitive within the banking industry.

**Saving based on the average difference in fees and charges over 3 years between the most competitive product Mozo can refer a consumer to and the average credit card product input by 6,863 consumers (average balance of $4,262 or balance transfer balance of $5,818, interest rate of 19.6% and annual fee of $36.50) who used the Mozo Credit Card Health Check tool between 1 January 2012 to July 2012.
