Expert review

The NAB Low Rate is a simple credit card that offers a competitive ongoing interest rate for purchases and an annual fee of $59. If you have big expenses coming up, the introductory 0% p.a. purchase rate could also give you some breathing space for the first 6 months (although you'll still have to make minimum payments during this time).

How to apply

You can apply for the NAB Low Rate credit card in around 25 minutes and should receive a response within 60 seconds of submitting the secure application form. Get started by making sure you meet the following requirements and have the necessary details and documents on hand.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency. You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
  • Age. You must be at least 18 years old to apply.

Card benefits

  • 0% p.a. purchase rate promotion. This card's introductory 0% p.a. purchase rate means you can shop and pay no interest for the first 6 months. At the end of the promotional period, any remaining balance from your purchases will be charged interest at the standard purchase rate of 13.99% p.a.
  • Low purchase rate. This card has a relatively low standard purchase rate of 13.99% p.a.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. The NAB Low Rate Card has an annual fee of $59 that is competitive to other low rate cards. If you don't want an account that charges an annual fee, you can compare no annual fee credit cards instead.
  • Foreign transaction fee. If you use this card overseas or shop online in a foreign currency, you'll be charged a fee worth 3% of the transaction value.

      Hi Ben,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      Yes, the NAB Low Rate Card has purchase protection. You can find the link to the booklet that outlines the policy on purchase protection on the NAB’s official page. Please click on the “Go to site” button above to be redirected to NAB’s page.

      If you will also click on the “Fees & Repayments” tab above, you would find the fees and rates of this card including foreign currency conversion fee, cash advance fee, overseas ATM withdrawal fee, etc.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Basically, awaiting moderation means “waiting for approval from a moderator moderator”

      Hope this information helped.

      Hi Wes,

      Thanks for your question.

      As long as you have repaid the balance in your card, you can close it anytime.

      Our guide on how to cancel a credit card may help.

      Hi Duncan,

      Thanks for your question.

      For the NAB Low Rate Credit Card, the minimum income requirement was not specifically mentioned as to how much, however, generally, for most credit card companies, they would accept applicants with income of $15,000 p.a. You can find more information about the income requirements for credit cards on this page.

      It’s best to get in touch with NAB if you want to verify the exact amount for the minimum income requirement for this card.

      Hope this is helpful.

      Cheers,
      May

    Hi,

    Just wondering what is the max credit limit on the NAB LOW FEE CARD?

      Hi Mustafa,

      Thanks for your question.

      The card doesn’t have a set maximum credit limit. Instead, the maximum credit limit you’ll be approved for will depend on details such as your income and credit history. When applying for a credit card, you can usually nominate the maximum credit limit you’d like to be approved for, though the final credit limit will ultimately be the bank’s decision.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,

      Sally

      Hi Latif, thanks for your inquiry!

      There are no processing fees/ admin charges for purchases made domestically. However merchant credit card surcharges may still be charged on your purchases/ transactions.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
