Types of NAB credit cards

NAB credit cards can suit many different needs, with low rate and low fee options, as well as reward and frequent flyer cards. There are also platinum and premium credit cards that offer more benefits, such as complimentary insurance. Here's a summary of each of the main types of NAB credit cards you can choose from:

  • Low rate and low fee credit cards

Low rate and low fee credit cards can help you avoid the high account costs that come with some other credit cards. NAB offers a range of credit cards with competitive purchase rates, low annual fees and interest-free days on purchases, as well as introductory balance transfer offers.

  • Rewards and frequent flyer credit cards

NAB rewards credit cards offer you points for your spending, with a choice of either NAB Rewards or Qantas Frequent Flyer rewards. Some NAB reward cards also give you perks such as complimentary travel insurance and purchase insurance cover.

The benefits of banking with NAB

Some of the features you can enjoy when you get a NAB credit card include:

  • NAB Internet and mobile banking

If you have a NAB card, you can access your account through NAB Internet and mobile banking. This means you can manage your account, make payments to other accounts in Australia and overseas, request a credit limit increase or apply for another NAB product at any time.

  • NAB credit card complimentary travel insurance

Some NAB rewards and premium credit cards come with complimentary travel insurance. Available to eligible cardholders and issued by QBE Insurance, the types of cover you can get include overseas medical, cancellation or holiday delay costs, emergency travel arrangements, accommodation expenses and missed connections. You must use your eligible NAB card for a minimum of $500 prepaid travel costs and meet the eligibility requirements to activate the cover. For details of the insurance available on specific cards, refer to the NAB complimentary credit card insurance booklet (available on the NAB website).

  • NAB reward credit cards – choose to earn NAB Rewards or frequent flyer rewards

NAB credit cards offer several different reward options. If you choose a card that earns points through the NAB Rewards program, you'll be able to use your points for a range of rewards including frequent flyer points, travel, merchandise and gift cards. NAB also offers Qantas frequent flyer credit cards that earn Qantas Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases. On 13 November 2017, NAB ended its partnership with flybuys and stopped offering the flybuys Reward card.

    How does balance transfer cards work? One has to apply for balance transfer amount at the time of application, if I am not sure, how much I need to balance transfer (I have not made any expense from my existing card)? Can I just apply for tentative balance transfer amount and once I my expenses limit (From existing card) reach to balance transfer amount, I simply call bank and ask them to transfer?

    Hi, I recently opened a Platinum dual credit card with NAB, and on the finder website, it said there is a 50,000 Qantas bonus points if you spend $2,500 within first 3 months. The bank doesn’t seem to know about this and I cannot now find this on the finder website. Can you please elaborate?
    Thank you

    Hello,

    I will be travelling to the U.S next month and have a Cash Passport card, but would also like to use my NAB Mastercard (low fee card) overseas. If I put my NAB Mastercard in “cash positive” credit so i’m using my own money like a debit card, will that be better than putting all my money on the Cash Passport card which doesn’t seem to offer a very good daily exchange rate?

    Thanks for any advice you can offer

    • Staff
      SallySeptember 10, 2015Staff

      Hi Craig,

      Thank you for your question.

      As a comparative service, we can’t actually recommend any one specific product, service or strategy to our users as the best option will always depend on your individual financial situation and needs.

      You may like to consider and compare the currency conversion fees, overseas ATM withdrawal fees and other foreign transaction fees that come with using both cards to decide which one compliments your holiday spending habits better. When using the Cash Passport, your funds will remain locked into the exchange rate that was in place at the time of loading.

      I hope this has helped answer your question.

      Thanks,

      Sally
