Expert review

The ANZ Platinum credit card offers a 0% p.a. purchase rate promotion that could help you buy what you need and save on interest for the first 17 months you have the card. After that, a 20.24% p.a. interest rate applies to purchases, which is higher than the average standard credit card interest rate in Australia.
