Great awards system
Amex card makes topping up points easier
Interest free days
High interest rate
High annual fee &89 for non-qualified customer
Overall, the card has give me much pleasure and convenience. I haven't had a chance to use the PayPass™ feature that my MasterCard comes with, but the basic features of a credit card are all you really need or even expect.
The card itself is sturdy. The magnetic strip is also scratch-proof, though in some grocery stores the card readers seem to have problem with this new design, but not older cards. No fees for students an added bonus.
Good rewards system, redeem points quickly through everyday shopping and use
takes a while to increase limits (no access online), to add additional card holders
I had the Commonwealth Awards Credit Card for 3 years now, and I'm pretty satisfied with the card.
I had a special offer from them, giving me $0 annual fees but a cap of $2000 limit. This is good considering that I don't want to spend excessive amounts and go in debt. I get approximately 60 days interest free. However if you go pass the 60 day limit, they will charge a high interest rate of around 17%.
Although I have the card for three years, I still haven't claimed any rewards yet. This is being the substantial points required for nice re...
Its handy card to have specially for reward purpose. I really like more when they still linking with Ezy Woolworth. Because i got the woolies voucher automaticly when i have enough reward and the reward seem to accumulate faster because they have extra reward/bonus point for shopping at the Woolies group shop.
Now days we seem to accumulate the point bit slow to get.
Its great card to use anywhere, the reward system have plenty of choice to choose. Its reputable company. the card appearance quite simple
The $49 fee and i can not access my saving account with the card for withdrawing matter since they cancel the Ezy banking link.
CBA's credit card is a standard bank credit card. it's not so great compared to a number of other offers on the market.
fees and charges
Overall, a credit card is a credit card at the end of the day. I chose the Commonwealth Bank of Australia card as it’s internet site is state of the art and I can monitor all my accounts from the 1 website, it has a Secure Internet shopping site online, good reward program, 55 days interest free and CBA is has a good reputation for security.
Commonwealth bank has a very easy internet website and it is so user friendly and easy to access and view all transactions. The points program is excellent and it has a reasonable annual fee for 55 days interest free.
It does have higher interest rates than other cards, and I know that some other cards have a $0 annual fee.
I've had this card for a few years now and made good money of the rewards program. the staff on the phone are australian in my experience which is a nice touch these days. they have a good variety of people to redeem with, and a great array of bonus partners that can be used. it can be connected to your netbank so that you can manage it with your bank account very easily.
Overall i've been very impresed.
excellent points program for what you pay.
reasonable annual fee for 55 days interest fee.
higher interest rate then my other cards. Not as much choose for redemtion as my other cards.
I originally had the Woolworths Ezy Mastercard (issued by the CBA) and when that got phased out in OCT 06, I got onto this one.
I am not really a fan of this card. I am not really interested in the rewards that are on offer, none of the them really interest me at all. The "cash-back" option is the only one but I find it awkward and complicated to redeem.
I don't really use this card anymore, it just sits in my wallet doing nothing. I will probably cancel it in the next few months.
55 days interest-free...that's about it.
Rewards partners where you can redeem points are not that thrilling. High annual fee. High interest rate.
This is my first credit card and it was easy to get (easy approval, fast, easy access to internet banking). It's so much more useful then just carrying cash around, now you can just use it (fast & easy) to buy something.
55 days interest free, easy to be approved, nice layout, aesthetic, can easily access internet banking, good credit card limit and awards range, fast and easy approval, from a well known bank, reliable, cash back award.
Limited reward options to redeem your points, its hard to obtain the rewards and keep your credit to a minimum, sometimes the credit card limit is too low (just depends on who you are), the annual fee is too high.
As a member of the Commonwealth bank I was offered one of these credit cards. There is no reasonable points scheme on any of the cards offered by the Commonwealth bank. The main thing that I do actually like about the Commonwealth bank credit card is that if you have a home loan with them, you can buy a package where you get lower rates on your home loan, and you get a lot of extra benefits with the credit card. If we get a home loan with them, I will definately be getting this credit card with the package because it is really good value for money.
This card replaces the "EZY Mastercard" where I could redeem points for cash vouchers so that I could purchase what "I wanted" at Woolworths stores. The "cash back" redemption is too complicated to understand, as it can't be use to pay your credit card debt, so what use is it? A point system that appears to deliver but is of little value to the "average" person
55 days interest free
Award point partners do not suit where I shop.Places to redeem my points is too limited and I don't fly on planes very often.
