Westpac's Low Rate credit card offers fantastic low rates, no-frills and modern and accessible features. It even comes with a 0% balance transfer offer for 28 months which may appeal to Aussies looking to ditch their credit card debt (offer ends 7 September 2021).

Key features

Westpac's Low Rate credit card is all about value. With a reasonably low annual fee of $59, a low 13.74% p.a. ongoing purchase interest rate, and up to 55 interest-free days, this piece of plastic has the potential to be a budget-friendly option.

Speaking of budget-friendly, this low rate card also features no annual fee in the first year ($59 after), plus new card applicants will be able to blast debt, thanks to the 0% balance transfer offer for the first 28 months (then 21.49% p.a.), available until 7 September 2021. Remember, there is a 1.00% set-up fee on the balance transfer.

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 is it good for

Westpac's Low Rate credit card could be a great option for anyone looking for an affordable no-frills card that still offers good value for money.

Any catches

Remember cash advances won't get the low standard interest rate, but the much higher 21.49% p.a. And don't forget that 1.00% fee on the balance transfer.
