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.
Reliable and instantaneous response when used
Works well in multiple scenarios such as for eftpos machines or vending machines using PayPass application of payment in addition to the standard swipe or insert and pin method of use.
Easy to use
I have been using this card for years and find it simple to use. The bank app makes it very convenient and it is easy to transfer money to the card and do your banking. I like the points, good way to treat yourself.
Good bank with a lot of youth incentives that help you manage your money more efficeiny. As a result I am able to manage and finance my money now at an important age
No frills Basic Credit Card
Had this card for almost 10 years.
No frills and hasn't failed me once.
I use it for convenience so I pay up when the statement comes.
I once missed a payment because I didn't receive the statement but CBA was kind enough to waive the interest penalty and charges. I have used it overseas and the exchange rate is typical of Aussie Banks-lousy.
Plus there is a charge for using the card-so I don't use my CBA card overseas.
Like I say-this is a no frills card so no reward points.
Accrue points for everyday usage
I simply use the Awards card for my everyday grocery to apparel shopping. The amount that I would have spent from my Debit card , I spend the same with my credit card and accrue points for the usage.
Its a pretty good card for me till now.
Good card for Lots if Rewards
My Commonwealth Bank Rewards card is easy to use. I have had this card for many years. All you need to do is pay for anything every time you shop and watch your points accumulate on your card. These points are great for all sorts of rewards and are very handy when you want to redeem for different things. I particularly like to redeem supermarket vouchers like Coles and Woolies. These rewards are also handy for special occasions like Birthdays and Christmas. The supermarket vouchers are available straight away via e-gift cards. Other rewards such as electrical, outdoors and more generally take between 2-4 weeks to arrive depending on their availability and where they are coming from.
Been with Combank for over 20 years (and I'm only 29)
I am very satisfied with my com bank cards, the credit cards are easy to use (maybe a little too easy) but also easy to pay off and with the option to transfer between accounts with the app makes it a lot easier!
Does what it is meant to.
Have used this card for many years and it just works. I have had to get a chargeback done once, due to problems with a dishonest business and it almost worked properly. Qantas points have been halved in last couple of years and interest rates still very high.
Easy to use, great protection options.
have had this card for a few decades, the best bit is being able to control how it is used via netbank, i can turn tap on and off, i can disable international payments in store and online, if anything looks fishy they call me up to ask, I pay the whole balance off every month so don't have interest charges, overall happy with the service.
Easy to use
Easy to apply, only took less than a week to complete the application. It also can be used when you travelling overseas, but be aware of the administration fees and currency rates.
