What's hot
  • 0% p.a balance transfer rate for 24 months (0% BT fee applies)
  • Annual fee waived in the first year ($55/year afterwards)
  • 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award winner
What's not

Mozo snapshot

The St.George Vertigo credit card could be a great option for those looking to avoid paying interest (initially), as the card features generous interest free periods for both new purchases and balances transferred from existing cards. The normal $55 annual fee is even waived for the first year!

Plus, this card won a 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award for best Balance Transfer Credit Card.

Key features
The St.George Vertigo card has one of the lower standard purchase rates on the market at 13.99%, plus there's also a leisurely 55 day interest free period in which to make any repayments, but make sure you do make those repayments on time, because there’s a $15 late payment fee. 

And while there is a $55 annual fee to consider, this is actually waived in the first year for new cardholders.

The card also has a 0% p.a balance transfer rate for 24 months which will help you save a heap on interest. But you'll need to move quick, as this offer ends on 30 March 2021! Just keep in mind that if you still have some debt left on the card after the balance transfer period, any outstanding balance will be hit with the cash advance rate of 21.49% so be sure to keep an eye on your repayments.

Finally, if you head overseas with your St.George Vertigo credit card just watch out for the 3.00% foreign exchange margin.

Who is it good for

If you're looking for an interest free card with great features and a first year annual fee waiver then the St.George Vertigo is for you.

snapshot
Any catches

Cardholders will want to avoid making cash withdrawals when they can because the card features a 21.49% p.a cash advance rate.

    The bank itself is fine but the St George online banking app is below par.
