Save: up to $139

Tip overview

Fallen behind on your credit card repayments? Don't feel bad. The average Australian cardholder is getting charged interest on a balance of $1,365 (that's according to the RBA).

And with the average standard credit rate now at 20.16% (also according to the RBA), you'd end up paying $153 in interest if you took a year to pay that balance off.*

Did you know?

If you switched to a credit card with a 0% balance transfer offer, you could pay it back in a year with no interest at all. Some cards, like St.George's Vertigo Card, give you 28 months interest free.

Even factoring in the card's 1% balance transfer fee ($13.65) this still saves you $139 in interest.
