Expert review

The BankSA No Annual Fee credit card is one of the few products that combines a 0% purchase rate offer with an ongoing $0 annual fee. However, it’s not the longest interest-free purchase rate offer on the market, 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:

  • Age. You must be at least 18 years old to apply.

Card benefits

  • No annual fee. This card charges a $0 p.a. annual fee.
  • 0% purchase offer. When you apply by 28 September 2021, you can save with 0% p.a. on purchases for the first 12 months. At the end of the promotional period, the rate will revert to 20.74% p.a.

Rates & fees

      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.
