Features

The ANZ First credit card has a low annual fee, a moderately high interest rate and a moderately low interest-free period of up to 44 days. Cardholders receive complimentary membership to Visa Entertainment, which includes access to special offers and events.

The ANZ First credit card allows up to three additional cardholders (16 years or over) at no extra cost. Also available is a balance transfer deal of 0 per cent interest for 18 months (with a balance transfer fee).

Cardholders can pay for purchases under $100 with tap and go by ANZ Visa PayWave – so there’s no need to swipe, dip or enter a PIN. The card is also compatible with Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay, so you can use your compatible Apple or Android device to pay for purchases.

Security-wise, cardholders are protected by ANZ’s Fraud Money Back Guarantee, 90-day purchase security insurance and extended warranty insurance. 

Pros
  • Low annual fee
  • Three free additional cardholders
  • Complimentary insurances
Cons
  • Moderately high interest rate
  • Moderate late payment fee
  • No frequent flyer points

Who is it good for?

The ANZ First card is appropriate for customers who are looking for a credit card that offers peace of mind with additional purchase protection as well as a low annual fee. However, the interest rate is moderately high compared to other cards on the market, so it is suited to those with the ability to pay off the card’s balance in full each month.

If you are looking for a family credit card, the ANZ First card could be a good choice thanks to the allowance for three additional cardholders at no added cost. It is not particularly suitable for overseas spending due to high international fees and charges.

The 18-month 0 per cent balance transfer deal may also make this card a particularly attractive option for those looking to carry over and pay off existing debt.

What RateCity says

This card offers some advantages to certain cardholders – for example, those who are looking for a low annual fee or the ability to add additional cardholders without having to pay extra.

However, the interest rate is relatively high for a non-rewards card and there are cards on the market with lower or no annual fees. Although cardholders have access to Visa Entertainment offers, the card doesn’t have a dedicated rewards program or potential to earn frequent flyer points.

The introductory balance transfer deal may be a drawcard for some customers, but probably wouldn’t be a suitable long-term card – especially for those who are unable to pay off the full balance every month after the introductory period finishes.

If the benefits of this card don’t fit your specific needs, it could be a smarter option to find a card that offers a lower interest rate or a more attractive rewards program.

Applying/eligibility

To apply for the ANZ First credit card, you need to provide an Australian driver’s licence number, proof of income and details of your expenses, assets and liabilities. You also need to be at least 18 years of age and have a good credit rating. You must also be a permanent Australian resident or a non-Australian permanent resident with more than nine months remaining on your visa, and earn an annual income of at least $15,000.
