Who is it good for?
People looking for a card with a general rewards program may find that this card offers a good variety of rewards-earning potential. Couples or other shared account holders may also benefit from being able to add an additional cardholder with no fee.
Additionally, the NAB Rewards Platinum Card is good for regular travellers and those wanting added protection when making purchases, thanks to its suite of complimentary insurances. However, its high international spending fees mean it’s not particularly suitable for overseas spending.
The introductory balance transfer deal on this card may be an incentive to those wanting to transfer existing debt, though it's important ot keep the balance transfer fee in mind.
And because this card comes with a moderately high interest rate and annual fee, it isn’t especially good for people wanting to minimise unnecessary debt and expenses.
What RateCity says
The NAB Rewards Platinum Card offers a good amount of flexibility in terms of rewards that can be redeemed for earned points. The potential to earn double or triple points on certain purchases is also an added incentive.
The interest rate and annual fee on this card are both moderately high, and although this is typical for a rewards card, it also means debt can quickly be accrued if you don’t pay off your balance in full each month. With this in mind, it’s worth considering whether the rewards-earning potential of this card outweighs the potential for added debt.
The balance transfer deal and allowance for additional cardholders could be valuable to the right person, though it's important to confirm that the card's other features and benefits will also suit your needs before thinking about applying.
To be eligible for the NAB Rewards Platinum Card, you need to be at least 18 years old and meet the serviceability criteria set by the bank. To apply, you can fill in a form online at the bank’s website or visit a NAB branch in person if preferred. When applying, you will need to provide proof of identification, personal details and proof of steady income, such as bank statements and payslips.
