      Thank you for your inquiry.

      As per checking Bank of Melbourne No Annual Fee Credit Card has no annual fee. But you can always clarify this information directly with the provider.

      I hope this information has helped.

    Hi,
    for no annual fee credit card, there is $15 card replacement fee within Australia, does it mean card holder pay fee every time card replaced when expired?

    Thanks

      Hi Fred,

      Thanks for your question.

      The $15 card replacement fee is applicable when your card is lost in Australia. There will be no fee when your card is replaced or renewed due to account/card expiration.

      Cheers,
      May

    What does it mean when a card has 0 days interest free?

      Hi Sara. Thanks for your question. This means that you will get charged interest from the day you make a purchase on the card. Other cards have up to 55 days interest free, and some cards have an extended interest free period when you first activate the card. Jacob.
