Expert review

The Summerland Rewards credit card offers 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 12 months, with no balance transfer fee. You can also save on upfront costs thanks to a waived annual fee in the first year and $79 p.a. from the second year onwards.

If you’re more interested in getting rewarded for your spending, this card gives you 1 point per $1 spent on eligible purchases, with every 1,000 equal to $10 cashback on your account. This is equivalent to 1% cashback and rewards are automatically converted and credited to your account every 6 months.
