Expert review

The ANZ Low Rate credit card combines two-cost saving features with its 0% balance transfer promotion and a low annual fee.

Although it isn’t the longest interest-free balance transfer on the market, it has the advantage of no balance transfer fees. However, any remaining debt at the end of the balance transfer period will attract the high revert rate.

How to apply

You can apply for the ANZ Low Rate credit card online in around 5 minutes and receive a response within 60 seconds. Before you apply, make sure you meet the following eligibility requirements and have the necessary information to complete the application.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency requirement. Citizens and permanent residents of Australia are eligible to apply. If you are a non-Australian permanent resident, you must have an eligible working or business visa with at least 9 months remaining.
  • Age. Be at least 18 years of age.

Card benefits

  • Balance transfer offer. New cardholders can enjoy 0% p.a. on balance transfers for the first 15 months with no balance transfer fee. Any unpaid balances at the end of the introductory period will revert to the standard variable balance transfer rate of 20.24% p.a. You can balance transfer from $100 up to 95% of your available credit limit from non-ANZ, Australian credit, charge or store cards. To take advantage of this offer, you must request the balance transfer at the time of application.
  • Low purchase interest rate. A variable rate of 12.49% p.a. on purchases means that you can save money each month when compared to cards with higher purchase rates.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This credit card charges a competitive annual fee of $58.
  • Up to 55 days interest-free. Receive up to 55 days interest-free on purchases made with the ANZ Low Rate Credit Card when you pay your statement balance in full. You won't be eligible for interest-free days if you're paying off a balance transfer debt.

    What does Balance Transfer Limit – 95% of available balance mean?

      Hi Metodi,

      Thanks for getting in touch!

      Balance Transfer of 95% means — you are allowed to transfer the amount owed from your old credit card 95% of your approved credit limit to your balance transfer card.

      For example, you owe $1,000

      The new card gives you $500 credit limit, the 95% of the $500 is $475. This means you can only transfer $475 to the new card and you’d have to pay the remaining $525 of your old card.

      Hope this clarifies! Feel free to message back if you have questions.

      Best,
      Nikki

    I’ve been self-employed for 9 months. Will a statement from my accountant stating my earnings since the business started be sufficient for this card? Just don’t want to apply and potentially damage my credit rating if I’m not eligible. Any advice on cards that might be suitable would also be gratefully appreciated :)

      Hi Alex,

      Thank you for reaching out to finder.

      Yes, a statement of earnings from your accountant as well as your accountant’s name and contact information would do as income documents when applying for this card. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,

      Hello Trai,

      Thank you for your comment.

      ANZ Low Rate Card max credit limit is not disclosed online as it’s being determined by the credit card issuer according to your income and financial history. Please refer to our guide about how to choose a responsible credit limit for your card here. The article will give you tips on how to determine your credit limit.

    Can I transfer the balance of two separate cards from different Banks if both balances owing are below 90% of the credit card limits?

      Hi Nathan,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Yes this is possible. As long as the debt is 90% or lower from the card’s credit limit then this will push through. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
