*The First Year Cost Comparison is the total interest payable over one year on a monthly outstanding balance of $3,000 plus the credit card’s annual fee. Introductory purchase rate offers and balance transfer offers are taken into account where applicable.

**The Spend required is based on the approximate everyday spending needed to redeem a $100 gift card or a return flight from Sydney to Melbourne from the rewards program, given the credit card’s point earning capability. For rewards programs that do not have a set number of points to redeem flights, the approximate spend is based on a $300 travel voucher. Bonus point offers and point capping are not included in the calculation.


Balance Transfer Tip

In order to tempt you to switching to their credit cards, banks and other card providers are offering great balance transfer offers to existing card holders. These rates have hit rockbottom – as low a 0 per cent. This means any outstanding balance you may have on your old rival credit card can be transferred to the new card with no interest charged on that money. But the balance transfer offer will generally only run for three to six months, after which the standard interest rate for that card, or the 'revert rate', will apply. And new purchases will be subject to the standard rate straight away. By all means take advantage of balance transfer offers to help you pay off your lingering credit card debt, but try to pay off the old debt before the balance transfer period runs out. And make sure the revert rate is reasonable too. No one should need to pay credit card interest rates of 17 to 19 per cent anymore.
