Hidden Fees and Interest Charges on so-called Cash Advances

published

I thought I'd buy a lotto ticket. I do this rarely. Once every 5 years. Last time no issue. This time... Commonwealth Bank now sees these as cash advances, so I got whacked with a cash advance fee, and interest charges from the day I bought the ticket. I only saw these fees when the statement arrived so had no forewarning that this was happening, or had the opportunity to immediately pay the so called "loan" I didn't realise I was given. Blatant gouging.

Had a good offer during signup - after that card is OKAY

published

Had a cashback of $200 when I spent $500 at signup which was pretty good. Extends 1 year warranty on most purchase. Annual Fee is $89. Overall card is OK.

Low rate with comprehensive international travel insurance

published

Great credit card for day to day use. Purchase interest rate is just 13.34% p.a and 55 days interest free which are really good.

This credit card comes with comprehensive international insurance cover. I have used it twice. Really easy to activate before flying overseas. Best part of this cover is available for not only the card holder, but for the spouse and kids (up to 10).

I highly recommend Commonwealth Bank Low Rate Gold credit card.

Great card, works well and really pleased with a low rate on purchases

published

I have been a customer of CBA for a long time and changed to this card from a standard low rate card as a complimentary bonus offer with complimentary travel insurance and no extra annual fees. I have not used the travel insurance but planning to use it for my upcoming trip to Europe later this year. I am very pleased with the interest rate of 12 %, it is very competitive and would suit someone who does not pay their credit card in full every month, I would recommend this card, it works for me and would work for others too.

Low rate but that's it

published

Low rate card for purchases but very high cash advance rate. Also can't be lowered beyond $2500. Standard low rate card is a better option with $10 lower yearly fee

A great, hassle free credit card with a few bonuses

published

I changed to this card in March this year, choosing to consolidate two cards into one. This Low Rate Gold cards has a reasonable credit limit, low interest rate and low annual fee as well. There are no excess fees when using it overseas - other than the normal international transaction fee - and you get travel insurance included, which was an automatic saving of over $150 for me. The staff at the bank are always friendly and don't try and push increased credit limits, and their online banking system is the best I've seen. Highly recommended and great product.

Until today was happy customer BUT FEATURES ARE TOTALLY WRONG & MISLEADING!!

published

Features in the website and brochure, says a lot but there's a hidden cost, which is not even mentioned in the terms and conditions which is available in online and Hard copy brochure. So Be careful, if you are attracted towards it due to its attractive features from online, word of mouth and etc.
Thought good to have 1 now totally confused!!
Misleading terms and conditions, didn't find the excess fee even while went through all the available online BANK'S T&C's thoroughly(each and every word)
