Pleased overall

Reviewed and recommended by Shane on 02 Jul 2016

The fees on this card are reasonable, the interest-free term is quite long, and the interest rates are comparable to most cards. The biggest benefit of my card is the rewards: there is so much to choose from and the points add up before you know it. The balance transfer rates are also very good.

Serves my purpose

Reviewed and recommended by Manjula on 21 Jun 2016

The points can be converted easily to KrisFlyer points and additionally you get Priority Lounge Membership in world class airports. Premier Lounge entries are unlimited and very helpful when you have an economy class ticket—you can get some business class service while waiting. Annual fees are reasonable.

Good for collecting points for flights

Reviewed and recommended by Manjula on 19 Jul 2015

Good credit limit, efficient service, good security for the card and good privileges. Any time I’ve had a query, the response from the customer service team has been efficient. Hassle free payment with text reminders for when a payment is due. No problems with overseas transactions either.

I highly recommend the card to anyone who is looking for a good credit limit card and prompt service.

A shiny card

Reviewed and recommended by Jenny on 04 Dec 2014

Generally pleased with the reward system on offer, and use the points toward the bill. I like that it has payWave and the fact that it is accepted widely around Australia.

I am not too happy being charged foreign currency conversion fees when travelling overseas. I even selected paying in Australian dollars once and still got stung.

Easy rewards

Reviewed and recommended by Kylie Butcher on 14 Oct 2014

Spend and treat yourself. Each dollar you spend you receive points that allow you to transfer into cash. Once you are reimbursed for your hard spending you can treat yourself with anything you may wish! You can also take the benefit of the low interest, which is easily manageable.

Problem-free rewards card

Reviewed and recommended by Anon on 11 Sep 2013

So easy to access this card. I have had no problems with payments, interest rates and resolution of problems. The rewards system is great – mostly household products we would use, as well as shopping cards with values from $50 to &100. Easy internet access.also makes this card a beneficial resource.

Totally happy with my platinum card!

Reviewed and recommended by Andrea on 30 Aug 2013

A great card, with easy use at a large range of shops etc and full access on my phone. Got the card when I purchased an investment house and have been very happy with the card and the bank in general ever since. Best service of any bank I have banked with ever!
