Expert review

The Bank First Visa Platinum credit card is one of the few cards that offers new cardholders an interest-free promotion on both purchases and balance transfers. There are some cards offering longer 0% purchase rate and balance transfer offers, so you should make sure you can pay off your balances in full before the revert rates apply.

How to apply

You can apply for the Bank First Visa Platinum credit card online in around 10 minutes. You should check if you meet the eligibility criteria and that you have the necessary information to complete the application before you get started.

Eligibility criteria

  • Age. You must be at least 18 years old.
  • Residency. You must be a permanent Australian resident.

Card benefits

  • 0% p.a. on purchases and balance transfers. New cardholders who apply by 31 December 2020 and make an eligible purchase by 29 January 2021, can take advantage of 0% interest rates on purchases and balance transfers for the first 6 months. After the introductory period, this will revert to the variable interest rate of 9.59% p.a.
  • Platinum concierge service. You can contact your 24/7 personal platinum concierge service for all of your travel, entertainment and lifestyle requests. This could include anything from organising travel plans to booking last-minute concert tickets or reserving a table at a popular restaurant.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This card charges a $99 annual fee.
  • Low variable interest rate. Outside of any promotions, purchases and balance transfers attract a 9.59% p.a. interest rate.

      Hi Julie,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      You may refer to our list of credit cards for pensioners and retirees. On that page, you will be able to compare your credit cards for pensioners and learn how to apply. There’s a table there that lists some of your options as well as their corresponding details. When you are ready, press the “Go to site” button to apply.

      Please make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua
