Low rates, solid first credit card
Low rates, plus a reasonably low annual fee ($58) made this a less intimidating and probably fairly solid choice for my first credit card. But while it is a good basic credit card, it does not accumulate points, and it lacks the travel benefits other cards offer by charging international transaction fees and not offering the free travel insurance included with other cards. A good basic, first credit card.

Is suitable as not always pay card off by end of month. Can redirect rewards to pay done amount
Took card as back up. Advised beforehand of where I was going. Did get a warning of someone else trying to use card in another country and the the transaction was not processed.
Have had card not be accepted if not advising bank of use before going overseas.

Perfect for Online Buying
This card is a low rate, and a low credit Limit. I use it for online buying as I have no other accounts with ANZ. Never had any issues at all, and have had versions on the ANZ card for almost 20years now.

im happy with the low interest rate. I was given a credit limit of $4000 which was more than i expected (and wanted) however it doesnt bother me because its only used for emergencies. I can track my credit card payments in my internet banking.
Low interest rate for me who is not a regular credit card user. They have the option of 0% balance transfers for 6 months which i dont need but its a great bonus. I can design my card to whatever print i like,
the annual fee is $58 dollars however the interest rate is smaller saving you more money than having the opposite.
A good card however one may require a second non-amex card. The annual fee is also reasonable for a gold card. Can use it world wide.
This is a gold card that offers travel insurance for those travelling overseas. This card is great if one is purchasing tickets for overseas travel using it.
American express cards are not accepted by a number of merchants which limits one option to earn maximum point from it. Some even charge higher merchant fees. This means that one has to have another card alongside one's amex just in case amex isn't accepted.
the card is not a bad one if you intend to use it for purchases, the rate is not too high compared to other cards, but like so many others beware of the holiday period ending once you've done a balance transfer. for even a small amount you'd pay an arm and a leg, never actually paying off more than the minimum each month.
good if you plan to keep the used balance to a minimum. or pay off very soon for a balance transfer transaction to another card
interest is surreal after the balance transfer period has run out
if you are existing an ANZ customer and like to manage the account online + stick with ANZ. fullly recommended to use this card.
however,if you are looking for lower rate and lower annual fees. this is not the best one. u definitely can able to find another to replace it.
it's easy to manage the account especially can do it online.
annual fees and interest rate is not the lower one.
able to find a better deal from HSBC.
