    $100 net not worth a credit enquiry

      $101 could be worth it

      A credit inquiry literally isn't worth anything.

      The "secret" is to have insanely high income/assets and low debt. A family friend of ours had the worst credit possible, a bankrupt… he then literally won Powerball. Like waving a magic wand, it was all good in the 'hood. Banks are always tripping over themselves to get his business.

          It isn't. Mr Spiff (lol) fears a credit inquiry will harm his future credit prospects. The reality is, making extra money will do so much more to help his creditworthiness than a bunch of silly inquiries. The banks couldn't care less, if your numbers are amazing.

            @Charity: Wrong again. How would you then explain why people (myself included) have exceeded income requirements by more than double. Let me tell you a non-anecdotal story. I know somebody who applied for the Citibank Signature Visa card who's income is literally 60+ times the minimum income required, and they got rejected. Amazing numbers don't mean anything.

              @spiff: The banks probably rejected your application due to your arrogance alone. You probably never gave them a chance to reject your app based on financial reasons.

              @spiff: Do you understand the meaning of the word anecdote?? Cos you just used one too…

              @spiff: what about the liabilities? loans, dependants, etc..
              it all adds up you know..

                @PissLUR: Last year I made the mistake of applying for a Westpac credit card 3 times and got rejected each time. I tried again this year AFTER taking out a new mortgage which substantially increased my liabilities, and everything else remained constant. This time I got accepted. Can't help but think that maybe since I'm a higher risk, the bank thinks they could make more money out of me.

        What are you on about? Why would you share a story that literally has nothing to do with credit enquiries?

        It's the opportunity cost/risk of not being accepted for a better credit card which has more to offer.

    Stuff ING - they don’t pass on Interest Rate cuts.

    With Orange One Platinum you earn 1% per dollar spend, up to $30 per month. That's up to $360 a year.

    $3,000 to get a $30 cashback a month? ($36000 spend for $360 cashback per year). Not buying anything and putting the $36000 in a 2% bank account gets you $720 a year… What would an OzBargainer possibly spend $36k a year on?

    For smaller purchases, get HSBC's 2% paywave cashback. You spend a lot less to get more back. Come on ING, you can do it.

    I don’t really feel the benefits of this card are worthy of the ‘Platinum’ moniker. Annual fee is too high also for what’s on offer.

    •  

      It's not really an ozbargain card. These low-interest cards are for people who don't pay off the balance every month and i'd expect 95% of ozbargainers to pay off the balance in full.

      if you always pay off you cards in full each month, these low-interest cards offer no benefits like you get with the reward cards.

    Is this targeted ? I only received email about their dropping rates.

    This card is also fee free if you have an ING home loan - whether that excludes you from the promo I don’t know. Unfortunately I’ve already got the card.
