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 20 months with no 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.

Am I able to transfer the balances of 2 credit cards in my spouses name if I apply for this card in my name only? And will there be any issues transferring the balance of an Amex card? Thanks.

    Hi Michelle, as far as I can tell, there is nothing in ANZ's balance transfer conditions, 'how to make a balance transfer' page or balance transfer application form that say you can't transfer debt from your spouse's cards. You can transfer balances as long as the original institution allows BPAY payments (and American Express does). You'll need to provide the other account issuer's name, card type, account number, BPAY biller code and amount to be transferred. If you have concerns about your eligibility you can always give ANZ a call directly. I hope that helps.

can you transfer the balance of more than 1 card when signing up for a 0% balance transfer credit card?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    8 April 2021
    Hi Jaye, it depends on the card but usually you can transfer at least 3 balances. ANZ doesn't specify how many balances you can transfer, just that you can transfer up to 95% of your available credit limit from non-ANZ credit and store card accounts. I hope that helps.

ANZ will be closing Balance vusa accounts soon, if there is an outstanding debt to ur account i cant transfer to another ANZ account or create a new one if debt isnt paid first is that correct. Can i remain with ANZ

    Hi Antonio, you cannot balance transfer debt from one ANZ card to another ANZ card. This is the case with all credit cards in Australia. If you'd like to transfer your balance, you'll need to get a card from a different bank.

Hi there. I’m looking to apply for a low rate credit card to build good credit. I’ve ordered my credit report from Equifax, Illion and Experian and they’re all clear and have 2 seperate credit sites that show my credit score to be above 700. My taxable income is $58,000 and have been working full time for 4 years. Would I be eligible to apply for a credit card of $5,000? I’ve used Afterpay services quite a bit in the past, only occasionally now, and was all paid in a timely manner. However I’ve seen articles about how it’s frowned upon by banks when applying for loans and credit cards. Will this hurt my chances? I already Bank with ANZ so I’m assuming when I apply they will have immediate access to my bank statements. Sorry for long novel of information. Thanks.

    Hi Alysha, unfortunately I can't give you an indication of your likelihood of approval. The eligibility criteria listed by ANZ is: Be 18 years of age or over, and Be a permanent Australian resident or a non-permanent resident with more than 9 months remaining on your visa, and Have a good credit rating. It sounds like you meet all of those, and if you already bank with ANZ it might be a good idea to give them a call and discuss your questions. Some use of Afterpay doesn't automatically hurt your chance of being approved for a credit card, especially if it was all paid off in time.
