Good credit card and rewards can be better


I got this credit card with no annual fee and use it for my all my daily expense except when there's a surcharge applied. I don't use it overseas as there's a high transaction fee. The rewards point is no longer redeemable for fee paid on government and council services which is a shame. I got free priority pass and travel insurance which I claimed before with no issue.

My main card, holiday travel insurance, QF points, No annual fee after 2 years


I have held the Signature rewards cards for over 12 years, I don't pay the $395 annual fee since year 2, if you always paid your card on time this is a great card. If you buy your air tickets on this, you get travel insurance for free, I used it a couple of times while I was in Japan and was sick. very helpful. I also racked up lots of points (used to) until they half the points and its now $2 to 1 QF points, but thanks to this card I got 9 return trip overseas for it. The customer services is 10/10. The card used to be blue and has silver words punched into it and always rubbed off, since becoming the new style and the numbers are printed on the back its so much better

Good card and rewards


I got this card through a no annual fee offer. The rewards program is good and the airport lounge access is a bonus. I don't think it is worth the full annual fee they charge, but since I don't pay that fee I am happy. Citibank customer service is always poor

A quality product so far


I have had this card for 1 day - so far the whole experience has been good. Application was first and trouble free, activation and registration for online banking was simple and good. My first purchase has gone without a hitch. Will report back later about long term features and benefits...

PS - their security team is very twitchy - they put a hold on my card when I had a few rejected attempts at EFTPOS and when I changed my phone number.
