Mozo snapshot

On the hunt for a budget-friendly credit card? The People’s Choice Credit Union Visa Credit Card may be just what you’re after. The card comes with a very low 2.99% p.a. introductory purchase rate (15.75% afterwards) and up to 62 interest free days on purchases. And with a $0 late payment fee, you won’t ever have to worry about missing the occasional monthly repayment.

Key features

The People’s Choice Credit Union Visa Credit Card is for users who want the convenience of the plastic without the high price tag. The card has a very low purchase rate of 2.99% p.a. for the first 6 months, and gives you up to 62 interest free days on purchases before you have to pay any interest. But keep in mind the purchase rate soars to 15.75% p.a. after the initial 6 months and the cash advance rate is also higher at 15.75% - although this is still relatively low as far as credit card goes. You will also need to budget for a $59 annual fee, which is waived if you have an active People’s Choice Credit Union Home Loan Package, or use its One to One or Financial Planning services. 

What’s more, the People’s Choice Credit Union Visa Credit Card offers the benefit of no late payment fee, which means you can have peace of mind that you won’t be hit with massive fees if you miss a monthly payment or two. 

With a low introductory balance transfer rate of 2.99% p.a., the People’s Choice Credit Union Visa Credit Card can temporarily accommodate those hoping to pay off credit card debt. But be wary that after six months, any balance leftover will start to attract interest at the regular 15.75% p.a. and could leave a huge hole in your pocket. So if you’re keen to pay off a big balance, a balance transfer card with a lengthy 0% interest free period might be a better bet.

Who is it good for

The People’s Choice Credit Union Visa Credit Card is a great option for spenders looking for a credit card that won’t cost them an arm and a leg. Having 62 interest free days on purchases instead of the typical 44 or 55 days also means this one’s a good pick if you think you might need a little extra time to clear your bill each month.

Latest reviews of People's Choice Credit Union Visa Credit Card

  • Overall 9/10
    Great customer service, few ATMs/branches.

    This bank seems to genuinely care about its customers and every time I've visited the branch the employees always try their best to help. No matter what the problem is, it's never my problem, it's our problem and we work it out together. The only con is that there aren't many ATMs or branches around, so it can be inconvenient to get cash out or deposit cash.

    Great online and still good walk-in facilities.

    Innovative approach to banking that the others are starting to achieve. Always staff on hand if I need face to face time but their online facilities are exceptional and it is only because I am older and used to be unsure online that I have needed personal attention that was freely and happily given. Well done.

    Would not change to another institute

    Always helpful whatever the problem. For example, about 20 years ago $10,000 went missing from my account, long story short they found how it was done and I was reimbursed. They were also very helpful in setting up internet banking.
