CBA made me pay ATO my due amount which i was planning to pay after 6 months. And then declined my credit application

CBA made me pay ATO my due amount which i was planning pay after 6 months. And then declined my credit application.
Why you asked me to pay ATO if you were going to decline my application ? Show details

Not bad

If you have a commonwealth bank wealth package you can get this card without the normal annual free. Credit card has all the bells and whistles expected and a middle range interest rate at the time of submission. Statements are easy to read and repayment amounts are clear. Show details

Good Card. Not Great Rewards but Low fees

The card is quite a good one in terms of fees. With these being quite low, it would suit someone who doesn't pay off their credit card each month. One drawback however is no rewards for using the card, and as such this wasn't useful for me. The card was easy to use and the sign up was very simple as I was already a Commonwealth Bank member. Overall, good card but not useful for my circumstances due to rewards. Low annual fees is also a positive Show details

Could be improved

it is a good credit card and it is not too difficult to increase the limit. But the problem is there is not much a reminder for repayments etc. If they could fix this, it would be excellent.

Easy to use

I first got this card when I had just turned 18.
It has always been easy to use and easy to access transactions and other relevant info through the app.
The statements are clear and provide all of the information needed.
The new program CBA have allows you to set part of your balance at a lower interest rate for a set amount of time, which is great as it saves money on interest.
The interest rate is very fair and the card has certainly been there for me when I have needed it most.
Thanks CBA. Show details

Pretty good

Easy application and good online app and internet banking using NetBank. Back then got this card when they're offering $300 cashback after $1000 purchase, which is a pretty good deal. One of the lowest rate in the market. Show details

Reliable all-rounder

I rely on my CBA Low Rate card for everyday purchases and to keep cash flow balanced. The main attractive feature is the low-interest rate on purchases, one of the lowest on the market and this feature is the most attractive to me. Show details

Easy to meet requirements

Previously had an Awards Credit Card which I found not practical. Rewards not worth having. Requested change to Low fee Card, no problem. To meet requirement for Low Fee or no fee only have to spend $1000 in previous year. Easily done.Should have changed when this type of card first became available.

I have been using this card for 3 years now and I havent had any complaints. You can use everywhere too. In fact when I went overseas I used my card to do my shopping and I didnt have any problems. I also used it for those emergency cash advances. The fees are low and wouldnt really harm your pockets. It is also great to use to do your online shopping.I have used it many times to buy things and services online shopping. Actually I have used it for my everyday transaction paying bills grocery shopping etc. A must have credit card for everyday use.
low rate and accepted anywhere
hope they can improve the card itself make it more attractive and be available in different colours.
