Great service and very low interest

Reviewed and recommended by Jacqueline on 30 Apr 2017

The card is bright and easy to find in my wallet. The interest rates are low. The service is always great. I have never had any problems with this card or with this bank.

My card was hacked. They knew before did, and rang me straight away. Bankwest all the way!

No-frills, low bills, not for dills

Reviewed and recommended by Simone on 24 Sep 2016

This product consistently delivers a considerably lower interest rate on purchases, year after year. I have had the product for approximately 7 years.

The annual fee is fair, but nearing what I would deem unacceptable for a basic credit card facility with no rewards scheme.

I’ve titled that this card is “not for dills”,as to operate it without grief you must be organised to get your monthly payment (minimum or higher) to Bankwest on time, with payment being via BPAY only for those outside Western Australia with no access to branch payment. Bank@Post isn’t available. Similarly, when you need to do something out of the everyday, like changing a PIN (done only in select full service ATM’s), it can be difficult if you reside outside the Bankwest branch network.

Internet Banking facilities are good, and you are able to message their customer service team via secure messages with a good turnaround time to receive a real-person response.

Unlike other institutions I’ve experienced, Bankwest charge a late payment fee immediately — not a single day’s grace — and the fee is high at $25.

I would use this card most days

Reviewed and not recommended by Abbey on 20 Sep 2016

I am not sure if I would really recommend it, but you get it. It would be nice to have lower interest rates. If it had lower rates then I would probably recommend it. As it is, I might only give it a few more stars than it is worth.

Bankwest is just one of those banks that is average at everything it does.

My kind of bank

Reviewed and recommended by Nancy on 19 Aug 2016

Bankwest is a good bank, The card has low Interest rates, and there is good customer service. Very professional, honest and it’s a West Australian bank which cares for its customers. Very honest and reliable. Bankwest has a good heritage and is very secure and will be around for a long time. My kind of bank, highly recommended.

Never lets me down

Reviewed and recommended by Josh on 13 Aug 2016

Bankwest is the best bank, offering the best cards and customer service. The Breeze MasterCard is easy to apply for at any Bankwest branch. The card is also accepted at every store I have ever bought from. I lost my card outside the vet clinic one day and it took less than three days to receive my new one in the mail. Amazing.

Balance transfer promo was a great start!

Reviewed and recommended by Candice on 09 Jun 2016

I wanted a low rate balance transfer card for a small debt. It was quick to apply, the staff were fantastic, and the fees excellent. From my dealings with BankWest so far, I am now thinking of transferring all of my accounts across to them. I can access my account through all Commonwealth banks and online banking is easy. I would recommend this balance transfer card to anyone.

Missed a local branch

Reviewed and recommended by Peter on 29 Oct 2014

I found the inconvenience of not being able to go to a branch and discuss any issues I might be having as the most irritating aspect of having this card. Recently I was under a little financial stress and asked for assistance, which was given by reducing my interest rate to just under 10 percent. When I asked for the same offer as a balance transfer i.e. zero percent I was denied even tough I had been a customer for many years and never defaulted. Poor form.

Very happy with it

Reviewed and recommended by Lauren on 09 Oct 2014

I am very happy with this credit card. Not sure if I get rewards for using it – if I do that will make it even better. Was easy to apply for and customer service has always been really great – friendly & helpful. Would definitely recommend this credit card to anyone else.

A good tool if used correctly

Reviewed and recommended by Charmars on 20 Oct 2013

Since I never experience late fees for I use my card only where I cannot use cash or E.F.P.O.S. and clear card as soon as I use it, or before the end of the month. In this way I don’t incur any charges at all, so I am well pleased with my MasterCard.

We really like this card

Reviewed and recommended by Happy on 30 Aug 2013

We really like this card because of the interest rate which is very low and have been very happy with the fees. When we have contacted the bank, customer service have always been friendly and helpful. Like the convenience of the card as its accepted everywhere in store and online. We would recommend it.
