ANZ Low Rate Credit Card – 0% Balance Transfer

The ANZ Low Rate Credit Card

If you’re looking for a perfectly simple, perfectly affordable credit card, the ANZ Low Rate Credit Card could be well worth a look. With a 0% balance transfer offer and a number of very useable features, this card could provide you with everything you need in a card – all rolled into a low rate, low annual fee package.

So, if the sound of that tickles your fancy, read on and we’ll get into all the need-to-know on this lovely piece of plastic.

What we love...

What sells this card has to be its affordability. While some credit cards provide platinum packages and remarkable rewards programs, they generally come with a hefty price tag. So, if you opt for a card with those kinds of features, it’s quite likely you’ll end up paying for them with a higher interest rate, higher annual fee, or both.

It’s true the ANZ Low Rate Credit Card doesn’t provide any show-stopping features, but it does have one ace up its sleeve. As a cardholder, you will benefit from a low purchase rate and a low annual fee, while still enjoying access to credit and a decent set of features.

Oh, and there’s also that balance transfer offer to think about. Get 0% for the first 25 months with a one off 1.5% balance transfer fee. The rate reverts to the standard rate of 20.24% p.a.

What’s not so great...

At this point in the review, we tend to go over some of the small print you should be aware of as a cardholder. This usually relates to important info on the introductory offer, features or rewards program, which allows you to weigh up whether the card is still right for you.

However, as this card doesn’t really have any complicated offers, features or programs, there’s not much we feel we should mention.

In terms of limitations, the main downside to this card is simply its simplicity. But that really only counts as a downside if you’re looking for a credit card packed with extras. If you happen to be looking for a simple, affordable card, the ANZ Low Rate Credit Card could be the perfect choice.

Why should you choose this card?

Aside from its low purchase rate and low annual fee, this card does offer some extras that you’ll probably come to appreciate. First up, to apply for this card you have to be a permanent Australian resident or a non-permanent resident with more than 9 months remaining on your Visa.

As for features, it provides worldwide emergency card replacement, up to 55 days interest free on purchases and up to three free additional cardholders.

In terms of security, ANZ offers its cardholders ANZ Fraud Money Back Guarantee and 24/7 Falcon fraud monitoring, which monitors your transactions for suspicious activity.

Overall Rating

A simple low rate, low annual fee card with a nice balance transfer offer.

As a Balance Transfer it was brilliant. ANZ gave excellent service until the end when I paid off the card and closed the account. At that point, access to internet banking stopped and they couldn't tell me what the final interest would be until the computer worked it out for them! (What did we do before computers?) I then received a statement through snail-mail for a few dollars and cents which I had to go to a branch to pay off. Then the next month I received a bill for $0.03. What a pain! Why do banks spend money on paper and postage to send you a bill for three cents? Wake up ANZ --all was really good until the end.

For a cheap card, this is a good option. After having an expensive rewards card for years, I decided I didnâ??t use half of what was on it. This was a good choice for me. Low annual fee and low interest rate, plus I get to stay with ANZ.

    Hi Russel, sure this is possible with ANZ. Approval will depend heavily on affordability. Additionally keeping a positive bank balance and paying all bills on time. If you have not applied for credit in 6 months. Then you can have a go and see what ANZ say.

    Hi Love, no you cannot with this ANZ offer. I assume its the Westpac line of credit product you would like to transfer. Have a look at the Citi Rewards Platinum. This product can take non-Citi loan debt.

    Hi Law, I like using AMEX cards. This is based on no extra fees for use. The highest and uncapped points earning. This is if you pay your account in full each month. Any premium rewards card would suit though it depends on how much your monthly spend is.

How mutch cash advance u take on credit cards

    22 September 2020
    Hi Sylvia, you can cash advance up to your credit limit. You money out at an ATM to a typical limit of $2,000 a day. Or you can go in branch and then take to your limit. A cash advance is no way related to the 0% balance transfer offer and is charged at the cash advance rate.

1)I want to make an international transfer between 15,000 to 22,000(to clear my debt back at once)is their any possibility to do it,if yes how much is the interest,balance transfer fee and do I get 22 months time to payback the amount ? 2)if no can I Make a international transfer from some other account(Not mine) and pay back the amount from this low rate card to that account?

    Hi Bittu, you misunderstand what a balance transfer is. This is when you transfer current Australian credit card debt to this card. You cannot just transfer the funds to a bank account here or overseas. Then pay back. Maybe your best option would be a low rate personal loan for this type of activity. Then you can get the funds in your bank account. Then pay back over time. A few options are Society One or NAB.
