Expert review

The Heritage Bank Classic Visa is one of the few cards to offer an annual fee waiver each year, with a spending requirement that works out to be an average of $2,084 per month (rounded to the nearest dollar).

How to apply

You can apply for the Heritage Bank Classic Visa credit card by calling 1300 272 197 or by filling in an enquiry form on the Heritage Bank website. Get started by making sure you meet the following eligibility requirements and have all the details you need to complete an application.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency. You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
  • Age. You must be at least 18 years old to apply.

You can redeem your credits for a choice of retail rewards, gift cards or charity donations, with credit requirements and details available when you log in to your account or call the bank. As an example of the rewards available, a newsletter on the Heritage Bank website (pdf) shows you could get a Myer gift card from 4 credits, or a noise cancelling headphones for 61 credits plus freight.
