A home loan or mortgage package gives you a way to bundle accounts together for a single annual fee. Each package is different, but you can usually get your a waived credit card annual fee when it's part of the bundle.
Depending on the card, that benefit alone could save you hundreds of dollars each year. But there are other features and costs you'll need to weigh up first.
What are mortgage and credit card packages?
A mortgage or home loan package offers discounts and other benefits when you bundle different accounts together. Instead of paying multiple fees for multiple products, you pay just one annual fee for a home loan package, which usually ranges from $150-$400.
Most home loan packages offer to waive the annual fee for a credit card that you add to the bundle. Other benefits can include no loan establishment fee, waived fees for offset accounts and other bank accounts, plus discounted interest rates on the home loan.
While you can save money and get other value from mortgage packages, they also benefit banks by encouraging you to do more business with them.

Tips to help you apply for a home loan and credit card package
- Compare. As with all financial products, make sure to still compare other available options before committing to the one lender. This is because other credit card/mortgage providers may be able to offer you a better deal or feature than this seemingly attractive loan package.
- Consider all inclusions. Make sure that everything included in the package is useful to you, because you might not get full value for your package fee if you’re not utilising the entire package.
- Check minimum requirements. Some requirements may apply. For instance, some loan packages may stipulate that your home loan be in excess of $750,000.
- Read all the terms and conditions. Make sure to familiarise yourself with all the details of the package, since some finer print may reduce the suitability of the package. For example, you cannot refinance a loan internally, or enjoy currently advertised discounts on an older loan.
