Expert review

Like most platinum products, the Heritage Bank Platinum Visa card offers perks like rewards, concierge services and complimentary insurances to add extra value. If you’re switching from another card, it’s balance transfer offer gives you a way to pay off debt interest-free for 12 months. Plus, it doesn’t have a balance transfer fee – unlike some other balance transfer offers. It also charges a competitive interest rate compared to most platinum credit cards, but you should still aim to pay your balance in full each month. That way you can avoid interest and take advantage of interest-free days on future purchases. On top of that, you can reward your spending with Heritage Credits, but you should take note of how much you’ll have to spend to redeem rewards.
