“Sponsored” products are displayed first within the search results pages and can be re-sorted without this filter by de-selecting the “Show sponsored listings first” checkbox. For more information on how we’ve selected these “Sponsored” and “Featured” products click here.

*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.
