Expert review

This low-cost card gives you a way to get $100 off a single shop at Coles supermarkets, which would completely offset the $58 annual fee in the first year. You can also use this card to earn Flybuys points faster by collecting 1 point per $2 spent when you use it to shop at Coles supermarkets. It also includes your Flybuys membership details on the back of the credit card – so you only have to pull out one card when you’re shopping with Flybuys partners.

How to apply

You can apply for the Coles Low Rate Mastercard via finder.com.au and you will get a response within 60 seconds of submitting the completed application form. Get started by making sure you meet the eligibility requirements and have all the documents and details you need to complete the application.

Card benefits

  • $100 off a Coles shop. You'll get $100 added to your Flybuys account when you apply through Finder by 29 October 2020 and use your new Coles Low Rate Mastercard to make an eligible retail purchase in the first 30 days from when the card's approved. The $100 will be added within 4 weeks of meeting the spend requirement and you'll have 90 days to use it on a single shop of $100 or more.
  • Points for shopping at Coles. This card offers you Flybuys points when you use it to shop at Coles Supermarkets, earning the equivalent to 0.5 points for every $1 spent. Note that points are awarded in whole numbers and are rounded down.
