ANZ Low Rate Credit Card

The ANZ Low Rate is a basic credit card with few extra frills, but a very competitive option if you're looking to save money.

When you apply for a new ANZ Low Rate credit card, you’ll get a 0% interest rate on balance transfers for 30 months, with no balance transfer fee. This promotional period starts from the date you’re approved for the card (referred to as the Letter of Offer date) – not when your balance is transferred. You'll want to pay off your full balance before that time is up, because at the end of the introductory period, any remaining balance will be charged interest at the cash advance rate, currently 21.24% p.a.

Expert review

The ANZ Low Rate credit card offers one of the longest interest-free balance transfers on the market, giving you 30 months to pay down your existing debt with a 0% rate. To give you an idea of your potential savings, if you wanted to transfer $6,000 and were currently being charged 19.94% interest rate, you could save $2,286.14 over 30 months. While you won’t be charged a balance transfer fee, keep in mind that a high 21.24% interest rate kicks in after the 30-month introductory period.
