Expert review

The BankSA No Annual Fee credit card is one of the few products that combines a 0% p.a. balance transfer offer with an ongoing $0 annual fee. However, it’s not the longest interest-free balance transfer on the market, so you should make sure that you can clear your debt within 12 months to avoid attracting the cash advance rate on any remaining balance. It also charges a balance transfer fee, so be sure to factor that into your comparison.

How to apply

You can apply for the BankSA No Annual Fee credit card online in 10 minutes and receive a response instantly. Before you get started, check if you meet the eligibility criteria and have the necessary documents to complete the application:

Eligibility criteria

  • Balance transfer debt. If you want to take advantage of a balance transfer promotion, BankSA allows you to transfer from $200 up to 80% of your approved credit limit from up to 3 non-BankSA, Bank of Melbourne or St.George Australian-issued credit, charge or store cards.
  • Residency. This card is only available to permanent Australian residents.

Card benefits

  • No annual fee. This card charges a $0 p.a. annual fee.
  • 0% balance transfer offer. When you apply by 12 February 2020, you can repay existing debt and pay no interest with 0% p.a. on balance transfers for the first 12 months, with a one-time 1% balance transfer fee. At the end of the promotional period, any remaining debt will attract the 21.49% p.a. cash advance rate.

Rates & fees

  • Purchase interest rate. Your purchases will attract the 20.74% p.a. purchase interest rate.
  • Interest-free days. If you pay your balance in full by the statement due date and are not carrying a balance transfer debt, you can take advantage of up to 55 interest-free days on purchases.

      Hi Ian. Technically yes. Generally you can only overdraw your account by a small amount, if at all. If you’re a victim of fraud, you can get your money back under the card scheme’s no liability policies. Thanks for your question. Jacob.
