ANZ Low Rate Platinum review

With the ANZ Low Rate Platinum card, you get all the benefits of having a platinum card, without the higher rates and fees that typically go with it. There is a $99 annual fee and an ongoing interest rate of 11.49% p.a. on purchases. Plus you have the buying advantage that comes with Mastercard, one of the most widely accepted credit cards in the world.

Australians with existing credit card debt will find the 16-month balance transfer option very helpful in taking it down. For a 2% balance transfer fee, you pay no interest on that portion of your balance during the allocated time. Any portion of the balance left over after 16 months will be charged at the standard balance transfer rate of 21.74% p.a.

Benefits of the ANZ Low Rate Platinum

Compare the benefits of a variety of platinum cards to make sure you choose the right one for your circumstance. When it comes to the ANZ Low Rate Platinum, these benefits should stand out:

  • You can balance transfer. If you apply for an ANZ Low Rate Platinum card and are approved, you can transfer your balances and pay 0% p.a. for 16 months with 2% balance transfer fee. This offer is not applicable for balances held with other ANZ accounts. Any unpaid balance at the end of 16 months will revert to the standard balance transfer rate of 21.74% p.a. You can transfer up to 95% of your available balance.
  • It is a low rate Mastercard. The 11.49% p.a. interest rate applied to purchases is competitive within the "low-rate" market. You are given up to 55 days after making the purchase before interest is applied. These interest-free days are only valid if you do not carry any balance on the card, including those from a balance transfer.
  • Comes with platinum Mastercard privileges. You'll have access to exclusive discounts on luxury spa retreats, car rentals, hotels and VIP access to just name a few.
  • You'll get included insurances. This card includes purchase protection, extended warranty and a 21-day best price guarantee. This means if you find an item purchased with the ANZ card somewhere else for cheaper within 21 days, the difference in price will be refunded to you. Any purchase made with your ANZ platinum card is protected for 90 days from theft, loss, or breakage.
  • Features complimentary travel insurance. Travellers can take comfort in knowing they are covered for emergency medical and dental care while traveling overseas, and travel cancellations or lost luggage while travelling inside of Australia. You will also be protected from excessive rental car fees if you hire a vehicle from a major car rental company in Australia.
  • Mobile payment technology. Apple PayAndroid Pay and ANZ Mobile Pay let you use your Apple or Android device to tap and pay with your eligible ANZ credit card.
  • Other platinum perks. As a Platinum cardholder, you have access to your own personal concierge. This concierge is available to assist you at any time of the day or night, no matter where in the world you are, and will assist in organising and booking tickets, tours, transport and a range of other activities
Tip: Remember to get in contact with ANZ and your travel dates, this will ensure your travel insurance is activated and also that your credit card isn't frozen (due to unusual activity) if you decide to use it overseas.

Features of the ANZ Low Rate Platinum

In addition to looking at the benefits of different credit cards, you should also be comparing common features.

  • What is the annual fee? You are charged $99 for the Platinum Mastercard from ANZ. This charge will typically appear on your first statement, and then yearly for as long as you have the account open.
  • Does it come with PayPass? This feature allows you to pay at check-out for purchases under $100 simply by tapping your card against the terminal.
  • Can you have additional cardholders? Add up to 9 additional cardholders to the account for a fee of $0 each.
  • What is the purchase rate? A low ongoing purchase rate of 11.49% p.a.

      Hi Bertie,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The ANZ Low Rate Platinum Credit Card actually offers 0% p.a. interest on balance transfer for 6 months only, not 16 months. After 6 months, the interest rate will revert to 13.49% p.a.

      Cheers,

    If I would like to pay off my gas & electricity bills (say $1500), car loan repayment of $300 & some shop purchases (say $2000) = $3800 in a month(rather within the statement period) using this card and transfer this amount within intro period say 40 days from my debit card, can I get interest free facility? or I need to pay cash loan interest for the bills- Can you please clarify?

      JonathanFebruary 3, 2016Staff

      Hi Venkat, thanks for your inquiry!

      To clarify your situation, balance transfers/ transferring an amount from a debit card to a credit card is not eligible. If the debt amounts that you have mentioned belong to a credit card then you can request for them to be transferred to the ANZ Low Rate Platinum credit card.
      Transferring your car loan repayment (qualifies as a personal loan) will require that you balance transfer to a Citi or Virgin credit card as they are the only banks that allow this type of balance transfer, you can compare their balance transfer credit cards here.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

    Hello,
    I intend to use the credit card for bills/everyday expenses. Can you please tell me whether bills are considered purchases or as cash advances. I would also like to know whether direct debit payments from the credit card account to regular billers (fortnightly or monthly payments of the same amount each time) are deemed purchases or cash advance.

    Thanks very much,
    Sandie

      JonathanNovember 9, 2015Staff

      Hi Sandie, thanks for your inquiry!

      Purchases are when a good or service is exchanged, bills can be considered purchases when using BPAY. Unfortunately we are unable to be absolute on this detail, as this depends on the merchant/ companies agreement with the bank. As per ANZ’s terms and conditions “This is dependent upon how the biller is set up with the BPAY® billing service. The biller has the option of accepting a credit card as a method of payment. If the biller chooses to accept, the bill payment is processed as a purchase.”

      I hope this has helped. For further clarification it is key to contact your biller directly.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

      ANZ allows the transfer between two people’s names. As long as your balance transfer amount is within 95% of the approved credit limit and you meet the application criteria you will be able to apply for this card/ promotion.
