The Queensland Country Bank Visa is a low-cost credit card with a 12.95% p.a. variable interest rate and a $39 annual fee that makes it competitive with other low rate cards. If you want to earn cashback rewards, you can enrol in the Rewarder program for an extra yearly cost of $58. But, with 150 points equalling $1 worth of cashback, you will need to think about whether the value of the rewards is worth it for you.
This card also lets you make payments from your mobile through Apple Pay or Google Pay and gives you access to exclusive offers on shopping, dining, travel and entertainment through Visa Offers + Perks. You can also share the account with your partner by getting an additional card at no extra cost.
