Expert review

With no annual fee and a low introductory rate, the BankVic Silver credit card is designed to help you cut standard card costs. Unlike most cards with a low interest offer, the standard interest rate that applies after the first 6 months is relatively competitive. This means this card could help you save more if you’re planning to use it beyond the promotional period. However, there are some other cards that offer 0% on purchases and balance transfers for longer introductory periods, so it’s worth comparing your options.

How to apply

You can apply for the BankVic Visa Silver credit card online in around 5 minutes. Before you get started, check if you meet the eligibility criteria and prepare the necessary details to complete the application.

  • Residency. This card is only available to permanent Australian residents.

Card benefits

  • No annual fee. This card charges $0 annual fee for life.

Rates & fees

  • Low rate. Outside of any promotions, this card charges a low ongoing interest rate of 11.95% p.a. on purchases, balance transfers and cash advances.
