Expert review

The McGrath Pink Visa is one of the only charity credit cards available in Australia –with 50% of the annual fee helping to fund McGrath breast care nurses. These nurses offer free care and support for people experiencing breast cancer and work in communities all around the country.

As well as supporting the McGrath Foundation, this card’s 8.99% variable interest rate is very competitive with other low rate options. Unlike most credit cards, this interest rate also applies to balance transfers and cash advances, which can make it easier to keep track of interest charges if you have balances from a few different types of transactions.

How to apply

You can apply for the McGrath Pink Visa online by filling out a secure application form on the Community First website. Get started by making sure you meet the eligibility criteria and have all the documents and details you'll need to provide when you apply.

Eligibility criteria

  • Income requirement. You must earn a regular income to apply for this card.
  • Residency. You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

Card benefits

  • McGrath Foundation support. Each year you have this card, $20 of the annual fee is automatically donated to the McGrath Foundation to help support breast care nurses that look after people experiencing breast cancer. This unique credit card partnership is highlighted through the card's bright pink design, which includes the McGrath Foundation logo.
  • 8.99% interest rate. While most low rate credit cards charge different interest rates for purchases, cash advances and balance transfers, the McGrath Pink Visa applies the same rate to all of these transactions. This can make it easier to keep track of interest charges and your balance.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. The $40 annual fee on this card is competitive with other low rate credit cards – plus half is donated to charity.
  • International transaction fee. A fee of 3% applies when you use this card overseas or online with a business that processes the payment overseas.

      Hi Rosalea,

      Thanks for your questions.

      This card has a maximum credit limit of $15,000, however, the maximum balance transfer and balance transfer frequency will depend on the bank’s approval of your application. This card is accepted in ATM’s where a Visa is accepted and note that there is a Cash Advance Rate (8.99% p.a.).

      To get started with your application, check the part of our page that says “How to apply.” As a friendly reminder, check the eligibility requirements of the card before proceeding with your application. Also, read about its features and benefits and see how it fits your financial needs. Additionally, it’s helpful to review the PDS and Terms & Conditions of the card before fully committing to the card. You may also reach out to the bank if you have any clarifications.

      Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Nikki

      Hi Sinai,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.
      Community First Credit Union issues these cards, so you can apply by visiting any Community First service centre, and you can also apply online and over the phone. To apply online, start by visiting the McGrath Pink Visa website, but only after making sure you meet the eligibility criteria such as you must be over 18 years of age, you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident and you have a good credit history.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Thanks for your inquiry!

      The Community First Credit Union/ McGrath does not have a specific income requirement. You should be eligible to apply if you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident, not bankrupt and you don’t have a history of outstanding credit defaults.

      You may like to refer to the contact details I have sent to your email for further inquiries into your application eligibility and options.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Sally
