This low-cost credit card from UniBank has no annual fee for life and a variable interest rate of 11.5% p.a. after the promotional 6-month period ends. The introductory rate on this card could save you a little bit on purchases or balance transfers you make during the promotional period, but it’s not as competitive as the 0% p.a. introductory rates offered by other cards.
The rest of the features on the UniBank Credit Card are simple. It offers contactless payments through both the Visa card and any mobile devices you have set up with Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay. It also offers interest-free days on purchases if you pay your full balance by the due date on each statement. Plus you get access to Visa’s zero liability policy for fraudulent transactions, Visa Secure protection when you shop online and exclusive offers for shopping, entertainment, dining and travel through Visa Offers + Perks.

Rates & fees
- Interest rate. Outside of any promotions, the UniBank Credit Card has a variable interest rate of 11.5% p.a. that applies to purchases, balance transfers and cash advances.
- Cash advance transactions. If you use this card to withdraw cash or make any other cash advance transactions at other financial institutions (not UniBank), a fee of $4.50 per transaction applies. Cash advances are also not eligible for interest-free days, so you'll be charged interest from the date of the cash advance.
- Currency conversion fee. If you're shopping online or overseas, be aware that any transactions that are made in another currency and then converted to Australian dollars will attract a fee worth 2.9% of the transaction.
