Review of the Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank Visa Classic Credit Card

This low-cost credit card offers both introductory and ongoing features that can help you save money on credit card debts and fees, starting with an introductory 0% interest rate for 6 months on purchases and balance transfers. This offer is available exclusively to new customers when you apply by 30 November 2017.

While this is not the longest 0% interest rate offer on the market, the Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank Visa Classic is one of the few cards that also offer a low standard variable interest rate for all balances at 12.94% p.a. This means you'll only have to deal with one interest rate when you use this card for purchases, balance transfers or cash advances, which can make it easier to manage your account and keep interest charges to a minimum.
