Expert review

The ANZ Low Rate credit card combines two cost-saving features with its 0% balance transfer promotion and a $0 annual fee for the first year ($58 p.a. thereafter).

Although it's one of the longest interest-free balance transfers on the market, it charges a one-time 1.5% balance transfer fee. Any remaining debt at the end of the balance transfer period will attract the high revert rate, currently 20.24% p.a.

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.
  • Eligible balance transfer debt. You must be a new customer and apply for the balance transfer offer at the time of application. You can transfer from $100 up to 95% of your available credit limit from credit and store card accounts not issued by ANZ.

Card benefits

  • Balance transfer offer. New cardholders can enjoy 0% p.a. on balance transfers for the first 25 months with a one-time 1.5% balance transfer fee. Any unpaid balance at the end of the introductory period will revert to the variable balance transfer rate of 20.24% p.a.
  • First year annual fee waiver. Save with a $0 annual fee for the first year (reverting to $58 p.a. thereafter).

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. Outside of any promotions, 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 while you're paying off a balance transfer debt.
