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 20.24% interest rate kicks in after the 30-month introductory period.
