How to apply

You can apply for the Macquarie Credit Union Visa credit card online in around 15 minutes when you meet the following criteria and have all the documents and details outlined below.

Eligibility criteria

  • Income. You must be currently employed and/or receive a regular income.
  • Residency. You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

Card benefits

  • Balance transfer offer. This card offers a 6.95% p.a. introductory interest rate for balance transfers. At the end of the introductory period, any remaining balance transfer debt will attract the card’s 12.99% p.a. interest rate.
  • Up to 55 days interest-free. This card offers up to 55 days interest-free on all your purchases. The interest-free period begins at the start of your statement period and ends on the closing date for that statement. This means the number of interest-free days available will depend on when in your statement cycle a purchase is made. If you carry a balance after the due date on your statement, interest will apply from the due date (not the date the purchase was made).

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. The low $30 annual fee on this card is charged when you first open your account, then each year around the anniversary of that date.
  • Additional cardholder. If you want to share this account with your partner or a family member, you can get 3 additional cardholders for free. Note that you will still be responsible for managing the account.
