Expert review

The 8.99% p.a. purchase rate on this credit card from MOVE Bank is competitive with other low rate cards. The same goes for the annual fee, which is waived in the first year and then reverts to $59 p.a.

It also offers up to 45 days interest-free on purchases when you pay the balance in full by the due date on each statement and has a 12.99% p.a. cash advance rate that is on the lower end of the scale.
