Now in their eighth year, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards provide a platform to highlight products in the marketplace we believe offer great value to Australians.
“We crunched the numbers on over 222 personal and 48 business credit cards from 75 financial institutions for this year’s awards. That’s a pretty big number and it just shows just how complex the Australian credit card market can be,” said Peter Marshall, Mozo Experts Choice Awards Judge.
“Every credit card has varying features and benefits, so it is important when looking for a credit card that you choose one that is going to best meet your spending needs and budget. Our credit card awards are split into distinct categories and the winners are different across the categories to meet the many variances that come with credit cards.”
For details on how we crunched the numbers and determined our winners see our 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Credit Card Awards methodology report.
2021 marks the fifth year in a row that American Express has taken out the Credit Card Provider of the Year award. Amazingly, they took out a huge 14 awards across both consumer and small business cards, in categories ranging from low rate to frequent flyer rewards cards, and everything in between. The breadth of their awards shows how American Express offers great cards to suit most needs.
Some Amex cards that were recognised as winners: Velocity Frequent Flyer Credit Card, Velocity Frequent Flyer Premium Credit Card, Rewards Business Credit Card and Velocity Frequent Flyer Credit Card.

We aim to include most credit card providers in the market in the Mozo Experts Choice Awards. However, not every credit card product on the market will be included in our review. Any credit card product we review must be available in the market at the time of our analysis. The Premium categories assessed all ‘platinum’, 'diamond' and 'black' credit cards, while the Standard categories considered all other credit cards. Charge cards were not assessed.
There is a reason why there are so many different categories of Mozo Experts Choice Awards in Business Credit Cards. When you’re looking for a credit card you’ll want to think carefully about your ability to repay any balance, the card benefits that you’ll use most or get the best value from.
For instance, low rate cards are generally better value if you carry a balance on your card from time to time. If you’re able to pay off your balance in full each month, a frequent flyer or rewards credit card could be best for you.
