What RateCity says

This credit card has few fees and fringe benefits. But it might tick all the right boxes if you’re someone who wants a credit card that’s easy to manage.

The interest rate for purchases is moderately low, however the interest rate for cash advances is high.

While the card offers 0 per cent interest on balance transfers, the rate reverts to the cash advance rate once the introductory period has lapsed.

Only one additional cardholder can be included on the primary account, and no annual fee applies for this service.

The Summerland Credit Union Low Rate Visa credit card doesn’t offer the lowest rates on the market.

Its appeal as a budget-friendly credit card is limited only by the high cash advance rate, which is something balance transfer customers might want to consider.
