The Coles Rewards Mastercard offers one of the most competitive earn rates among cards that collect flybuys points. If you regularly shop online with international merchants or travel overseas, you could get extra value courtesy of the 0% foreign transaction fees.

How to apply

You can apply for the Coles Rewards Mastercard online and receive a response within 60 seconds. Make sure to check if you meet the eligibility requirements and have the necessary information to complete the application before you get started.

You'll collect 1 additional point when you scan your flybuys barcode at eligible retailers including Coles, Kmart, Target and Liquorland.

    What fee do you charge for payments made at Australia Post?

      Hello Peter,

      Thank you for your comment.

      If you pay your bill over the counter at Australia Post you may incur more or less a fee of $2.00 per payment (including GST). The cost will vary also because you may incur fees and/or charges imposed by your biller at the time of making payment, or on your next bill, for payment processing costs.

      Anyway, if a fee and/or charge is applied at the time of making your payment, you will be advised of this before the payment is processed and you will have the opportunity to cancel or change the payment before it is processed.

    As a supplementary cardholder, does he get a different card number ? Or is it equal to the primary one?

    And how is the access to the mobile app? Is it separate from the primary member or information is all together ?

      Hi Rapahael,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      Subject to Coles’ approval, the supplementary cardholder will be provided with an additional card, a separate PIN, and other Security Codes necessary to use facilities like telephone banking and internet banking. The additional cardholder will have access to your account details and transaction history.

      There is no specific information stating that the additional card will have a new or different card number so most likely, it will have the same card number. You can confirm that information by calling Coles directly.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Charisse

    Hi,

    Wanting to change from Coles (no annual fee) Mastercard to a Platinum Rewards Mastercard. How do I go about this, and also what happens to the reward points which are on my card now?

      Hi Robert,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      To change your card to Coles Platinum Rewards Mastercard, you have to apply for that card and cancel the old one. Please note that flybuys points don’t expire as long as you collect or redeem them at least once a year. If you don’t earn or redeem any points on your account for a period of 12 consecutive months, then your points will automatically expire and your membership may be terminated.

      As a friendly reminder, while we do not represent any company we feature on our pages, we can offer you general advice. You can contact Coles directly for further concerns and enquiry.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hello Roy,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Most of the credit cards featured on our pages are offered to permanent residents and citizens of Australia. If you’re an international student and temporarily residing in Australia with eligible visa, you may check the credit card products listed on this page.

      Please note that the credit limit is to be set by the provider and this is being assessed based on many factors. Before you send an application, make sure you are eligible. I hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn

      Hello Sandra,

      Thank you for your purchase.

      According to the Coles Mastercard Reward terms and conditions, an Eligible Transaction means any purchase excluding (but not limited to) Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, Special Promotions, BPAY payments, purchases of foreign currency and travellers cheques, transactions made in operating a business, payments to other Citi accounts, bank fees and charges such as interest and ATM charges, transactions made using flybuys Points and government related transactions. This in indicated in part 1 of the terms and conditions. For the additional cardholder, there’s no charge for yearly additional cardholder fee.

    Hi,

    I have a 28 degrees card (with a small credit card limit) which I use when I travel internationally. I can load this with cash prior to pay for things (eg. accommodation) that may cost more than my credit card limit. Is it possible to do this with the Coles card?

    Does using the card while travelling internationally attract flybuys points?

    Cheers,
    VV

      Hi Vv,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Typically you can earn flybuy points through eligible transactions that exclude cash advances, credit fees or charges, credits, refunds, reimbursements, business purchases or balance transfers into your account.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

      Hi Leanne,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      In general, across-border assessment fee and a currency conversion assessment fee is charged when you withdraw cash from an automatic teller machine outside Australia or when you make a cash advance at international merchants in a currency other than Australian dollars.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold
