Expert review

The ME frank is a no-frills credit card that offers an ongoing $0 annual fee and straightforward credit card features. Its variable interest rate of 11.99% p.a. is extremely competitive among low rate cards and actually applies to all transactions. This means you get charged the same interest rate for purchases, cash advances and balance transfers, which can make it easier to keep track of charges.

How to apply

You can apply for the ME frank credit card online in around 5–10 minutes. To get started, make sure you meet the eligibility criteria and have the required documents and details on hand for a quick application process.

Eligibility criteria

  • Minimum income. You must earn a minimum of $25,000 a year to apply for this card.
  • Residency. You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

Card benefits

  • $0 annual fee. This card does not charge an annual fee.
  • Low interest rate. The ME frank credit card charges a competitive variable interest rate of 11.99% p.a. This rate applies to purchases, balance transfers and cash advances.

Rates & fees

  • Interest-free period. When you pay your balance back in full for the previous statement period, you can take advantage of up to 55 days interest-free on purchases. The actual length of time will depend on when you make the purchase in your payment cycle, starting from the first day of your statement cycle. For example, purchases made on the first day of a new statement period will be eligible for 55 days interest-free, the purchases made on the second day would get 54 days, and so on.
  • Cash advance fee. When you withdraw money using your card or make another cash advance transaction you'll be charged a fee of 2% of transaction amount or $4 (whichever is greater).

    Good morning, My husband wants to apply for ME credit card. He will be working for a different company from next Monday 7/05/2018 after 3 years with present company doing the same work. Will this affect his application. His choice to change.

      Hi Linda,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      As you click on the application requirements tab it says that the minimum income is $25,000. If you husband has the proof of having that minimum income or more then you have nothing to worry about applying for this card even if he is changing jobs.

      Please note: “You can apply for the ME frank credit card online in around 5–10 minutes. To get started, make sure you meet the eligibility criteria and have the required documents and details on hand for a quick application process.”

      Employment details. This includes your position, salary and your employer’s name and contact details. If your self-employed, you may need to provide your accountant’s details and your previous Australian Taxation Office statements.

      As a friendly reminder, while we do not represent any company we feature on our pages, we can offer you general advice.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Cheers,

    Do you have direct debit for a credit card repayment. As I would like the payments to go directly into your bank on the due date. What would I need to do this?

      Hi Marilyn,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      The quickest and easiest way to pay off credit card debt is with a monthly direct debit. Choose whether to pay the monthly minimum, a percentage of your total or a set amount – and on your due date each month your payment will automatically happen.

      If you already have an ME frank credit card and you want to set up a direct debit payment then you can call them to set that up or have your direct debit payment set up online.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    What does being able to add 8 card holders to the card mean?

      Hello Maree,

      Good day! Appreciate you contacting us regarding your inquiry today.

      Additional cardholders may be someone from your family whom you authorize to share your credit limit with you. Upon the bank’s assessment and approval, they will be given their own card under their name and every time they make purchases that will be charged to your account and be taken against your total credit limit. It looks like ME frank credit cards allow you to add up to 8 additional cardholders if you wish to.

      Please bear in mind that the more cardholders on your account, the harder it will be to manage your finances and credit limit as you will all share the same credit. You will still receive one statement for the account, and be responsible for all transactions and repayments.

      For further information regarding this or if you wish to get in touch with their representatives for additional inquiries you may have, kindly click on the green “Go to site” button on this page you have accessed.

      Hope this helps!

      All the best,

      Ron

      Hi Sandra, thanks for your inquiry.

      This could depend on when you last applied for your card. For credit cards, the general consensus is to not apply for more than one credit card every 6 months. To get this resolved, it would be best to contact ME frank directly.

      Best,

      Jonathan
