Great until you make a mistake - then unable to help :(
I accidentally ordered too many of an item with my awards points. This was on the weekend - outside of business hours, so I couldn’t call to rectify this. Called the next business day - I was very politely informed that it was too late; sorry, already processed and nothing they could do. Very disappointing. I made a mistake, but there was no avenue to rectify it. A very unforgiving system.

Low minimum credit limit
Good entry level card. The low minimum credit limit of $500 makes it accessible for those times when you need an actual credit not debit card for hotel stays etc. Not really any other benefits of this particular card to mention.
Does the job
The great thing about the CommBank awards card is the convenience in online mobile banking. The awards themselves arnt that interesting for the amount you have to spent to redeem them.
Functional and straightforward
I have been using the CBA card since 2013. It's quick in transferring money to this credit card and the customer service is impeccable. but I'm not too happy with the annual fee.
I have been using the CBA card for the 4 years. The customer services is good but I don’t like annual fee. Also CBA used to give for Amex 2 points for $1 spent but they get rid of it.
No issue with the card itself. Easy to transfer and check balance. CommBank always update their software and banking apps so it is secure and ready to go. More rewards would be good.
Have been with bank for years
Don’t use much mainly for online purchases and hotel bookings .Doesnt earn any points but have all my a/cs with this bank so find it easier to have it there
A good credit card which can be easily paid off with a phone transfer from a CBA savings account. A good rewards program , earning rewards for spending that you would do anyway.
The best thing about the Commonwealth Bank credit card is its awards program . Unlike Fly Buys , you do not have to clock up tens of thousands of points to gain a benefit. Non shoppalics like myself , can quite easily earn enough points to earn rewards such as movie tickets , shop gift cards, fee reversals or just cash back on the card.
Couldn't loyal CBA customers be rewarded with NO annual fee?
fees were high after the interest free period so it worked out better to get a a gold card. the gold card offers alot more features, larger credit limit & easier to get rewards so i canceled this card and opted for visa gold card.
fee's after intial free period
It is useful to have a credit card as you don't have to carry cash in order to make purchases.
My rewards were paid to me in cash off the credit card recently instead of buying something I didn't really want.
Its easy to spend too much and not be able to pay it all every month.
Well the Commenwelth credit Card overall is pretty average. no real biggies in it but it's still not bad becasue well- iknow bad. If you don't know what credit card you want pick this one and then go searching for others because it is really hard to find the right credit card early on. so take my advice will ya
It's very limiting (which is good because i am a credit frak) but you can still buy the things you want.
The interest rate is a bit high and really puts a toll on ya $$$ so please please don't spend too much.
I have had my ccard for about 5 years now, and the thing I like the best is the rewards program. However, I believe I am paying for this with the high interest rate ??? They even let you go over your limit by a little, if you have been a good customer! The customer service team is pretty good, but you have to get onto it fast if you want anything done.
Easy access to internet banking.
High interest rate
It's an average card, pretty much on a par with National standard visa card,but without the Fly Buys advantage.
The interest free period is okay for these types of cards
Rewards are difficult to obtain if you try and and keep credit to a minimum.
I did have the Woolworths Ezybanking Mastercard which was what this card replaced. I much prefered the Ezybanking card as the points could be redeemed as Woolworths vouchers to spend at any of their stores. Although our points mount up pretty quickly we're limited as to how we can redeem them. The goods aren't that great and I don't like the cash back idea as it doesn't feel like a reward. We always pay our account in full anyway so just having the cash put back onto the card as credit doesn't make any difference to us. We'd much prefer store vouchers.
55 day interest free and good rewards points.
Limited reward options to redeem the points.
