Bendigo Bank tops with feature-packed Low Rate Platinum Mastercard®
Bendigo Bank has taken out first place in the Low Rate Platinum Credit Card category in the 2017 Mozo Expert's Choice Credit Card Award for the bank's Low Rate Platinum Mastercard product. The award follows Bendigo Bank's recognition by Australian consumers as the banking provider of choice in the annual Mozo People's Choice Awards.
In carrying out the 2017 Mozo Experts Choice Awards, Mozo analysed 190 personal credit card products issued by 66 Australian financial institutions.
Bendigo Bank Chief Customer Officer, Marnie Baker said: "We are very pleased to have again been recognised by Mozo for outstanding customer value, this time for our Low Rate Platinum Mastercard."
"Our Low Rate Platinum Mastercard comes with several additional features that all add up to provide new levels of consumer protection and value that you'd only usually expect to find with cards that come with much higher fees.
"We charge interest differently to other banks meaning that you could pay around half as much interest compared to other cards. Mobile phone and tablet insurance is also provided against loss or screen damage when customers buy a new device with the card, which is real peace of mind when you look at the replacement cost for these unforeseen events.
"There's an additional warranty protection on purchased goods such as electrical items too. We offer an extended warranty for up to 12 months after the original manufacturer's warranty ends for up to $5,000 per covered item, so that customers can enjoy additional peace of mind when shopping with the Bendigo Bank Low Rate Platinum Mastercard.
"We even include cover for stolen or damaged items with 90 day purchase protection on stolen or damaged items. In this event, we will repair the item, or credit the customer for the purchase price up to $5,000 per item.
"Shopping with confidence that you've bought at a great price is also part of the value package. If a customer finds the same item that they have purchased with our Low Rate Platinum Mastercard for a much cheaper price, they can claim a refund for the difference if they make a claim within 30 days of purchase - as long as they've found the item for at least $100 cheaper than their purchase price. Customers are covered for up to $1,000 per item.
"Travellers gain access to special offers with Mastercard Priceless® Cities, which provides access to exclusive offers on unforgettable experiences around Australia and across the globe, from special offers on hotels, entertainment, dining, and shopping.
"As leaders in the Australian credit card market, we believe that we've struck a great balance with our credit card range when it comes to fairness, features and customer service excellence," Ms Baker concluded.
