Rates and fees

  • Annual fee. This card's annual fee is $58 p.a. ongoing, which is competitive with other similar cards.
  • Balance transfers. 6 months at 0% p.a. is not that competitive against other balance transfer offers. Moreover, any balance transferred that remains unpaid after the introductory period will revert to the cash advance rate of 19.99% p.a. There is no balance transfer fee to pay either, making this even better for saving money.
  • Cash advances. The cash advance interest rate of 19.99% p.a. will apply from the date of the transaction. A one-off fee will also be applied per transaction.
  • Foreign exchange fee. Foreign currency transactions will attract a foreign transaction fee of 2.5% of the transaction amount.
  • Interest-free period. There are 55 days interest-free on purchases, but not while you have a balance transfer. The interest-free period on purchases doesn't apply to cash advances. To get interest-free days, you must have paid off the previous statement bby the due date.
  • Purchases. The Coles Low Rate Mastercard does not have an introductory offer on purchases. All purchases made with the card will be charged interest of 12.99% p.a. until they've been repaid.
