Mozo Review   Westpac Low Rate Review

Last updated: 17 October 2019.

What's hot:
  • No annual fee in the first year ($59 after)

  • 0% balance transfer rate for the first 16 months

What's not:
  • 21.49% cash advance rate

Mozo snapshot:

Westpac's Low Rate credit card offers customers fantastic low rates, no frills and modern and accessible features. It even comes with a 0% balance transfer offer for 16 months which may appeal to Aussies looking to ditch their credit card debt. 

Key features:

Westpac's Low Rate credit card is all about value. With a very reasonable annual fee of $59 which is waived in the first year, a low 13.74% ongoing purchase interest rate, and up to 55 interest free days, this piece of plastic is certainly easy on your budget.

And at the moment, you'll be be able to blast debt, thanks to the 0% balance transfer offer for the first 16 months (then 21.49%), available until 31 March 2020. 

You can use the card overseas or shopping online wherever Mastercard is accepted and it comes with Mastercard Tap & go functionality so for purchases under $100. All foreign transactions will have a 3% foreign exchange margin added to the Australian dollar amount.



Who it's good for:

Westpac's Low Rate credit card is perfect for anyone looking for a no-frills card that is still affordable and good value for money.


Any catches?

Remember that cash advances won't get the low standard interest rate but the much higher 19.49% cash advance rate.

    Always great customer service. Being with Westpac for over 20 years, I feel a strong sense of trust and familiarity. However I dislike the fact that I’ve in no way been rewarded for being a long term customer.
