Our verdict

Cut credit card costs with a competitive annual fee and a low 11.99% purchase rate.

The Newcastle Permanent Value+ credit card combines a competitive annual fee and interest rate. It’s also one of the few cards that charges the same low interest rate on purchases and cash advances. Although customers can enjoy the perks you’d usually expect with a Visa, this card doesn’t come with extra features like rewards and complimentary insurance that you could expect with a more expensive product.

Pros

  • A relatively low annual fee of $49 p.a.
  • A low interest rate of 11.99% p.a. on purchases, cash advances, and balance transfers

Cons

  • Does not offer any rewards

Hi Rakez!


Thanks for the comment.


One requirement for applying on this card is a permanent Australian citizen and currently resides in Australia.


You can check out instead of a list of credit cards for temporary residents.


Select the “Go to Site” button of your chosen card to proceed with your application.


Hope this helps.


Cheers,

Jonathan

Hello. I am looking to apply for a personal loan from Newcastle Permanent to pay off high rate credit cards with other banks(to clear my debt) and then also applying for a lower rate credit card with you, of say $3,000. How long does the approval process usually take for both of these products?

Hi Angela, thanks for your inquiry!


Credit card approval can be instant upon application approval or conditional (Requiring validation of documents etc) which can take 2-3 business days, this also applies to personal loan applications.


Cheers,


Jonathan

Under your Value+Credit Card do I have any type of cover for car hire abroad as in Insurance or Liability for injury to people or Free collision and auto theft cover. I understand a lot of visa card providers offer these sorts of cover. thank you
