Expert review

The Coles Rewards Mastercard offers one of the highest earn rates among cards that are linked to the Flybuys program, with up to 2 points earned for each $1 spent on eligible purchases. As an example, you can redeem 2,000 Flybuys points for $10 off at partnered stores including Coles and Kmart. That means the 20,000 bonus points could get you $100 off your shop at Flybuys partners – or 10,000 Velocity Points if you’re chasing frequent flyer rewards.

The current introductory offer also saves you $99 on the annual fee for the first 12 months. If you’re paying off another credit card now, you could also save with the 18-month 0% introductory rate on balance transfers. But keep the 1.5% balance transfer fee in mind, as well as the annual fee that applies after the first year.

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.

Card benefits

    Hi! I would like to know that can I use this card on other shops like Indian Grocery shops or to fill the tank of my car?

      Yes, you can use this card to purchase on other shops that Coles. You can use this as a regular credit card where Mastercard is accepted.

    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?

    Thanks

      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
