Customer care representative was rude

Reviewed and recommended by Priya on 02 May 2017

I called customer care for a charge query. But the representative was rude, did not listen to my query and hung up on me! I ended up being on hold again for 40 minutes, demanded to speak to supervisor and finally got my query resolved. I was quite angry after this episode

i save a lot on this 'no annual fee' card

Reviewed and recommended by amandeep on 05 Apr 2017

It’s a good credit card for rewards and I get $10 off for every 2000 points. It’s also a no-fee card.

This is my first ever credit card and it is a really good card. I will recommend to my friends and family members to get this card.

$100 dollar offer promised but not fulfilled

Reviewed and not recommended by J on 04 Apr 2017

They promised to give me a $100 voucher with this card to use at Coles. They confirmed and re-confirmed my eligibility, then never provided it. Then, when I rang, they suddenly changed and said it was their mistake – I am not eligible. What a scam.

And the approval process was very slow, with far more documentation required than they suggest. Very scammy.
They have an Indian call centre.

It shouldn’t be allowed, but you don;t get paid for your time to filter through the ACCC or Ombudsman or Fair Trading, so they get away with it.

Watch out for their interpretation of due date

Reviewed and not recommended by Andrew on 31 Jan 2017

Make sure you pay before the due date. Yes, at least three days before, they say! Otherwise interest will be charged. Customer service didn’t want to hear or see proof that payment had been made from my account on the due date. I will be cancelling the card and taking my business, including insurance, elsewhere.

Disappointment could be a great product.

Great card, with no catches so far

Reviewed and recommended by Byron on 10 Dec 2016

There’s no annual fee, so no $ up front. It’s a great option compared to 0% balance transfer cards, as you don’t have to foot the $75+ fee for that service. Instead, this card offers the simple solution of no interest on purchases for ages, then reverts to a standard rate at the end. It’s like a GE Finance option at a retail store, without the formidable 30% interest at the end, while you scramble to finish paying off your purchase. So far I haven’t found any catches with this card.

Very poor customer service

Reviewed and not recommended by L on 03 Dec 2016

I only found out my Coles Credit Card had been put on hold when I went to pay for my click and collect Coles order. My card had been declined. No notice, no emails or texts were provided. I spent hours waiting on hold on the phone, trying to talk to a “non-customer service” person. I saw a dubious transaction listed in my online statement which I did not make. I finally was connected to a person and they cut me off. After hours on hold again, I finally spoke to a person. Worst customer service ever.

What more could you want?

Reviewed and recommended by Zachary on 21 Oct 2016

Want a credit card with a rewards program?
Want a credit card with no annual fee?
Want a credit card with a no fuss application process?
Want a credit to use just for that emergency situation that you didn’t foresee?

Then look no further — the Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard is the card for you! From the application process until you first use your card, this product is a pleasantly smooth ride.

My only dislike is the interest rate

Reviewed and recommended by Lynda on 30 Sep 2016

I’ve owned this card for many years. I only have the one credit card. I didn’t choose it — I was transferred onto it when it replaced another card.

I’ve no major complaints. The service has been good, and I’ve been able to successfully negotiate a refund of the odd late fee, to my satisfaction. The credit limit has been flexible on the odd occasion I have gone over it.

I like that it gives me extra flybuys points when I do my grocery shop, and pay my power bill. The only negative for me is the higher interest rate.

Not my best decision

Reviewed and not recommended by Mick on 27 Sep 2016

This was my first credit card, with 19% rate, and a month later interest rates crashed and other Coles cards were 9%. But I still get flybuys points — that was my reason for getting the card. And at least it has no annual fee.

Otherwise it’s a fair card, but I think I might choose differently next time.

Fantastic first credit card with rewards

Reviewed and recommended by Skye on 27 Sep 2016

This is my first credit card and I would highly recommend it — no annual fee, low interest rates, and you can earn flybuys points just by using your card. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to manage their budget and earn shopping points in the process.

The application process was quick and easy and I received the card quickly in the mail.
