Expert review

The Virgin No Annual Fee credit card is a low frills product that can be used to repay an existing debt or cut back on card costs. The balance transfer introductory offer is relatively long, but the low interest rate is higher than many products that offer 0% for a promotional period.

How to apply

You can apply for the Virgin No Annual Fee credit card and complete the secure online application in 10 minutes. Before you apply, check that you meet the eligibility criteria and have the required information ready to go.

Eligibility criteria

  • Income. You must earn at least $25,000 p.a. to apply for this card.
  • Credit history. You must have a good credit history with no record of being declined for a credit card.

Card benefits

  • $0 annual fee. Pay no annual fee ever with the Virgin No Annual Fee Card.
  • Balance transfer offer. If you apply by 31 August 2019, you can take advantage of a 6.9% p.a. for the first 36 months on balance transfers. Once the introductory period is over, the rate reverts to the cash advance rate (currently 20.99% p.a.). You can transfer up to 80% of the approved credit limit from non-Virgin accounts.

Rates & fees

  • Interest rates. This credit card charges a purchase rate of 18.99% p.a. and a cash advance rate of 20.99% p.a. (variable).
  • Up to 44 interest-free days. You can save with up to 44 days interest-free on purchases when you pay your account off in full by the statement due date. Please note that you are not eligible for interest-free days while you are carrying debt from a balance transfer.

    I earn $25,480 on disability support pension, would Virgin accept this as my income it is over the minimum $25,000 that they require? My credit score is good too. What are my chances?

      Please make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

    Definitely not an instant approval card. I submitted all of my documents. So you have any idea how long will it take for them to get back to me with a decision? Wish I would’ve known this, as I would have opted for a different card.

      Hi Annette!

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      I’m afraid the Virgin No Annual Fee Credit Card doesn’t earn any rewards points.
      You can check out the credit cards earning Velocity points here.

      Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.

      Hi Gilliah,

      Thank you for reaching out to us.

      You may take advantage of the Virgin Money No Annual Fee Card 0% p.a. balance transfer offer for 12 months if you are a new credit card applicant. You shouldn’t have an existing account with Virgin to avail their introductory promo. The balance transfer rate will revert back to 20.99% once the promo period ends.

      I hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us again if you have additional questions.

      Cheers,
      Ash

      Hi Andy,

      Thanks for your question.

      You’ll not incur a fee or penalty when you close your account in less than a year, as long as you did it the right way.

      You may check our card cancellation guide on this page for your reference.

      Hi Param,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, Virgin Money credit cards do not allow joint balance transfer. The credit cards that allow this are listed on this page.

      Hi Tia,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      As long as you have a good credit file history and you meet the application criteria, then there will be no issues applying for a card.

      If you’re interested in applying for this card, before you submit an application, get in touch Virgin Money first to discuss your chances of approval. This way, you can also avoid an enquiry on your credit file and keep it healthy.

      Cheers,
      Jason

      Hi Mann,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you are looking to pay off your personal loan, you may like to reconsider checking this page instead. There are lenders listed on that page who offer debt consolidation products.

      Whilst you can access funds from a credit card through cash advance to pay off a personal loan, cash advances may incur unnecessary high-interest rates and fees. So you may have to look for this factor before using a credit card to pay off a debt.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Sandra,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      You have four options to repay your credit card balance, which are either by Direct Debit Auto Pay, Cheque, via Bank@Post at an Australia Post office or via BPAY from any other suitable bank account that you have. You might also want to check the page I’ve sent to your email for a more detailed explanation.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,
      Arra
