Credit Card Reviews

ANZ Low Rate review
Overall 1/10
Warning: Self employed stay away

I have lodged an online application over 3 weeks ago and after two weeks an Assessor contacted me to provide further income information as I'm self-employed. I went to Narellan NSW Branch where I was greeted by unhelpful staff (" I don't have time to upload your documents and you need to make an appointment") There was at least 3 people inside the Branch waiting for a teller. When I finally received a call from another Assessor (overseas based) which I was not aware as it was a local Australia number calling me. I questioned him about how he worked out my Self-employed income and he could not explain, he kept telling me that you cannot afford this credit card. Warning to any self-employed not to apply through ANZ, unless you want to leave your decision to an untrained overseas staff (they do not understand our demographics). If it does not fit into the box, then you'll be declined!!

NAB Credit Card review
Overall 1/10
Unprofessional and third rate for service.

Senior Management obviously live in a cave. Two weeks waiting on a replacement card only to be advised today that it hasn't been sent and will be another 7-10 days. Heading towards three weeks without bank access. Whilst Aust Post is no better surely an express envelope would get it here quicker. No dynamics here and they obviously haven't learnt from the RC into banks.

Reliable company and rewards.

Earn reward points when using. Points can be redeemed for a variety of products or gift cards. Interest is fairly high, so really only works of you keep the card paid up fully, so no interest is charged. If using the card as above the reward points are well worth it.
