Yes. NAB classifies the annual fee as a purchase. Therefore, if you have a card with no interest on purchases for the first few months, you won’t have to pay interest on the fee unless you haven’t repaid the amount by the time the revert rate kicks in. Similarly, if your card offers interest-free days on purchases and you repay your balance in full in the previous statement period, your annual fee won’t accrue any interest.
If your card has been lost, stolen or damaged, you can immediately block it and request a replacement through your NAB Internet bank account or the NAB mobile app. You can also use these services to temporarily lock your NAB credit card while you try to find it or request a replacement for a damaged card.
