Our verdict

Offers 0% interest payment plans when you make major purchases at participating stores around Australia – but watch out for the revert rate.

If you need to buy a new fridge, television or even want to install solar panels, the interest-free finance options available through the Latitude GO Mastercard could help you get what you need without paying interest straight away. These offers vary between participating stores, but typically offer 0% p.a. for between 12, 18, 24 and 60 months.

The stores where you can get a 0% interest payment plan vary based on your location, so it’s worth checking the Latitude GO Mastercard website to see if the retailer or brand you’re interested in is available. There is also a handful of participating retailers online – including Harvey Norman, The Good Guys and Freedom.

Pros

  • Choice of 0% interest payment plans: Equal Monthly, Minimum Monthly, & Flexible
  • When you carry a balance of less than $10, you will not have to pay the $9.95 account servicing fee

Cons

  • Does not have a rewards program
  • Charges a 3% foreign transaction fee
  • High purchase and cash advance interest rates

But if you don't pay off the balance of a 0% interest payment plan before it ends, a high interest rate of 29.99% p.a. applies.

If I have a Latitude Go, am I able to Balance Transfer out the remaining balance to another institution?

Thanks for your question. Yes, you can apply for a 0% balance transfer offer to a credit card from another financial institution. You will need to provide the account details for your Latitude GO Mastercard account, as well as the amount you want balance transferred. Keep in mind that some credit card brands ask for the account name and number, and others require BPAY details for the account – so make sure you have the required information ready when you apply. I hope this helps.

Hi Christopher,

You can set a PIN through the online Latitude Service Centre if you have access to a computer. Otherwise, call Latitude on 1300 552 079. I hope that helps.

I didn’t apply for Latitude Go Mastercard but received one recently. I have not activated it nor intend to. How open is my information regarding the latest Latitude security breach?

Hi Rose,

Latitude has said it is contacting affected customers directly. But if you didn’t apply for a credit card and received one in your name, it’s a good idea to check your credit report to see if the account details are listed on your credit file. You can do this for free through Finder and then get any mistakes or incorrect details removed from your credit report. You can also contact IDCARE on 1800 595 160 and report incidents through the Australian Cyber Security Centre website. I hope that helps.

Hi Jamy,

The Latitude GO Mastercard doesn’t earn reward points, but you can see other credit cards that do earn points in Finder’s guide to reward credit cards. Hope that helps.

Can u pay off the Go MasterCard by redeeming points on Go MasterCard?


Avatar

Jhezelyn Finder

January 28, 2019

Hi Amba,


Thank you for your comment.


According to Go Mastercard, the points are not transferable to other accounts and are not redeemable for cash. Hence, the points cannot be used for repayments on the Go Mastercard.


You can redeem your points for a range of gifts and services via the GO Mastercard Online Service Centre.


Regards,

Jhezelyn
