The Bendigo Bank Low Rate Platinum Mastercard combines a competitive purchase rate and annual fee with platinum extras. Not many credit cards offer complimentary insurance for mobile devices if you lose or damage them, so that particular perk sets this card apart. Keep in mind that you’d have to buy the device using this card to be able to make a claim.
