ANZ Gold Visa Card review

In terms of features and benefits, the Gold Visa Card closely resembles the low-rate Platinum credit card, also offering complimentary travel and medical insurance, along with up to 55 days of interest-free credit and special discounts through MasterCard Platinum Privileges.

Travellers can benefit from up to 6 months of travel and medical insurance cover as long as a minimum of $250 in travel costs was charged to the Gold Visa Card before departure from Australia. If a claim was lodged, proof of this minimum charge as well as eligibility criteria would be verified before a payout was issued.

Benefits of using ANZ Gold Visa Card

  • Overseas travel and medical insurance. Participating Gold Visa cardholders have to be permanent residents or eligible to work in Australia, and under 80 years of age to qualify for this insurance. Once a pre-booked transport expense of $250 or more is charged to the Gold Visa Card (before leaving Australia), the complimentary travel insurance is automatically activated and the cardholder is covered for the duration of his/her travels. This covers medical, hospital and ambulance expenses while overseas. Dental expenses are covered to a maximum of $2000. The current stipulations regarding payouts and which circumstances merit unlimited cover are outlined in ANZ’s Insurance Policy Information booklet online.
  • Interest-free credit. If the credit-card balance is paid back in full in each month, cardholders enjoy interest-free credit for up to 55 days.
  • No additional card fees. Up to 9 people can be added as cardholders at no additional cost.

ANZ Gold Visa Card features

  • Annual fee. An annual fee of $87 applies for this credit card. New ANZ customers benefit from an annual-fee waiver in the first year. For each subsequent year that the customer makes eligible purchases equal to or exceeding $20000, the annual fee will be waived.
  • Purchase rate. Gold Visa cardholders benefitted from an annual purchase rate of 18.99% p.a. and an annual rate of 20.74% p.a. on cash advances.
  • Purchase insurance. The Gold Visa Card provides 90-days purchase insurance with a security warranty.
  • Quick delivery. Once the application has been approved, please allow up to two weeks for your card to arrive in the mail. Your PIN is sent separately for security reasons.
  • Visa Entertainment. This feature allows cardholders to benefit from discount on merchandise and access to exclusive events.

    I only earn just over $28,000 pa, but have a casual job that has been on-going for most of this year and is likely to continue next year. Can this go towards my annual income?
