Mozo snapshot

Can a credit card really be kind to cardholders? Well, the NAB Low Rate Credit Card has a 0% p.a. purchase rate for 20 months and there's also a nice low annual fee of $59 and you won't be punished (well, not too harshly) for the odd late bill.

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, but the best part is, for the first 20 months you can make interest-free purchases. Just bear in mind a one-off 2% balance transfer fee also applies.

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.

Who is it good for

This card could be great for people looking to repay 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%) which will start accruing interest immediately if you withdraw cash using the card.

    Not interested in their customers.

    Why can't they look after long term customers with the same offers they make to new customers.

    Staff are caring and products comparable to others

    I have a staff member product as I am a retired employee and as such get a good deal with some products. I worked for NAB for 40 years and know that generally they do care about customers and aim to do the best for them. Their products are generally similar to all other major Banks but some may vary slightly so investigation of alternatives is a good idea.

    A bit clunky. Could use some refinement.

    I'd never recommend a credit card to anyone. I've had this for 10 years and need to review. Can't fault NAB service but their internet banking is as good as it could be.
