Expert review

The combination of a competitive purchase rate and annual fee on the Latitude Low Rate Mastercard could help you keep credit card costs down. When compared to other low rate cards, the 9.89% p.a. interest rate for purchases is at the lower end of the scale and could help you save on interest charges if you want to pay off purchases over time. The $69 annual fee is also competitive with other cards in this category.

      Hi Tom,

      Thanks for reaching out to Finder. On this page, you’ll find a list of providers that accept applications without income. Just go to the part of the page that says “What discounts and eligibility criteria apply to student personal loans?” and review the eligibility of each provider carefully. Before lodging an application, read up on the terms and conditions and product disclosure statement and contact the bank should you need any clarifications about the policy.

      Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.

      Best,
      Nikki
