McGrath Pink Visa features

  • Competitive rates. The low rate of 8.99% p.a. that this card charges is amongst the lowest you can find, and the fact that the same low rate applies on cash advances is a definite plus.

      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.
