Our verdict

This low rate card offers up to $350 cashback in the first 7 months, with a $59 annual fee.

The Westpac Low Rate Credit Card currently gives you a way to get more value from your spending as a new cardholder, offering $50 cashback every month when you spend $1,000 for the first 7 statement periods from card approval. That means you can get up to $350 back. While a lot of cashback offers have one spend requirement you need to meet (e.g. $3,000 in the first 3 months), this one technically has 7 – but it does mean you can get some cashback even if you only meet the requirement for a couple of months.

Pros

  • Up to $350 cashback offer
  • Competitive $59 annual fee
  • Free additional cardholder

Cons

  • No rewards program
  • No additional perks like insurance covers or travel benefits

The Westpac Low Rate Credit Card is suited to people who want a low-cost account with simple features. You can pay with it anywhere Mastercard is accepted, and get access to interest-free days for purchases if you pay your balance off in full by the due date on each statement. While it offers up to $350 cashback for new cardholders, keep in mind that it doesn't have an ongoing cashback or rewards program.

Hi Sonya,

When you apply for a credit card, a credit enquiry is added to your report and that can affect your credit score. If you’re not sure what employment and supporting documentation will be needed, you could call the provider or check out Finder’s guide to applying for a credit card as a new employee. I hope that helps.
