Expert review

The Bank of Melbourne Vertigo credit card gives you a mix of low-cost features without the bells and whistles offered by some other cards. For starters, you’ll save with a $0 annual fee when you first get it. A $55 annual fee kicks in after the first year, which is still competitive with other credit cards in this category.
