Types of Bank First credit cards
Low rate credit cards
Both Bank First credit cards offer variable interest rates that are competitive with other low rate credit cards. With the Visa Classic, you get a 12.54% p.a. variable rate for purchases, cash advances and balance transfers – plus no annual fee. With the Visa Platinum, you get a 9.59% p.a. variable rate and pay an annual fee of $99 These cards also offer interest-free days on purchases, but only if you pay your balance in full by the due date on each statement.
Platinum credit cards
The Bank First Visa Platinum combines a low rate with platinum perks, including complimentary travel insurance and a platinum concierge service you can use to save time on tasks such as making restaurant reservations, booking events, planning trips or getting gifts for loved ones. But, considering some other platinum credit cards offer other premium perks, make sure you weigh these features against the cost of the annual fee to help decide if it's worth it.
