Expert review

Interest-free purchase offers generally range from 6 to 15 months, so the NAB Low Rate Platinum is one of the longer offers on the market. It has a relatively competitive standard purchase rate of 13.99% p.a., which is good news if you’re unable to clear your balance before the introductory period ends.

This card also offers 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 6 months. If you need to repay a large debt, you may want to consider a card with a longer interest-free balance transfer offer.

How to apply

You can apply for the NAB Low Rate Platinum card online in 15 minutes and should receive a response within 60 seconds. Make sure you meet the eligibility requirements and have the necessary documents and information before you get started.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency. You can apply if you're an Australian permanent resident or citizen. If you are not a citizen or permanent resident, you will need to provide the last overseas address you lived in.
  • Credit history. You must have a good or excellent credit history to apply for this card.

Card benefits

  • 0% p.a. purchase offer. Apply for a new NAB Low Rate Platinum Card and take advantage of 0% p.a. interest on purchases for 15 months. This rate reverts to the standard purchase rate at the end of the introductory period. Minimum monthly repayments still apply during the introductory period but it's wise to pay more than this to repay the entire debt before the standard rate applies.
  • Complimentary travel insurance covers. The NAB Low Rate Platinum Card offers four types of complimentary travel insurance. This includes comprehensive overseas travel insurance and transit accident insurance for international travel, plus interstate flight inconvenience insurance and domestic hotel burglary insurance when you're travelling throughout Australia. The cover is issued by QBE and is available when you make eligible travel purchases using your NAB Low Rate Platinum.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This card has an annual fee of $100.
  • Standard purchase interest rate. Outside of any promotions, the NAB Low Rate Platinum Card has a standard interest rate of 13.99% p.a. on purchases.
