Expert review

The Australian Mutual Bank Visa is a no-frills credit card that gives you both low rates and a low annual fee. The 10.49% p.a. interest rate is on par with other low rate cards and applies to purchases and any debts you balance transfer to the account. You also get up to 55 days interest-free on purchases for each statement period, as long as you pay off the account’s closing balance by the statement due date.
