Income Details

You may be asked to verify that you have an income. Regardless of what type of income you're currently receiving, you will need to provide evidence of how much you're currently earning. If you have payslips or statements from Centrelink, then provide these documents to the lender as part of your application.

These documents help the credit assessor to determine whether you'll be able to repay the amount of money you may spend on your credit card in the future.

Repayments and Bills

If you're currently repaying other loans or credit cards, or if you're paying rent each week, you may need to provide details of how much your current minimum repayments are for each of these. You might also be required to provide your landlord's details.

Information about repayments and debt consolidation

Research

Before you sign and submit your Coles credit card application, be sure to take a little time to read through the contract terms and conditions. Once you sign the contract agreement, you'll be bound by the terms laid out in the fine print.

To help protect yourself against any unforeseen conditions or charges that may arise, it's best to know in advance what is expected of you and what the lender may resort to in a worst case scenario.

If you don't understand the wording laid out in the terms and conditions, be sure to ask a representative. Ask plenty of questions and be sure you understand exactly what's required of you. If you don't receive an answer that makes sense to you, ask for further clarification.

After all, this is your money that will be repaying the amounts you charge in future, so it's important you understand your own obligations under the contract conditions in full.

It's relatively simple to submit your Coles credit card application online. Simply fill in the online form and submit your application, but be sure you've taken some time to read through the terms and conditions before you do so.

      Hi Sarda,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, you can apply for the Coles credit card if you are receiving Centrelink payments. You’ll just need to provide Coles of your pension statement. Other credit card issuers that accept pensioner applicants are listed here.

      Cheers,

    Hi,

    To apply for a no fee Coles credit card, do I need to work for my current employer for x amount of time? (It has been only a few weeks and when I applied I put 1 month and I was refused, so I am wondering if that was the reason.)
    Thank you!

      Hi Kiki,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      There’s no details on the terms and agreement of this card for a required length of employment to be able to apply for the Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard, however, they may need to verify if you have an income and you will need to provide evidence of how much you’re currently earning since they will use that information to determine whether you’ll be able to repay the amount of money you may spend on your credit card. There’s also a minimum income requirement of $25,000 p.a. for this card.
      Please get in touch with Coles on this link for further inquiries and more information.

      Cheers,
      Jason

    With Coles Prepaid Cards, you simply buy, load your money and then you’re free to spend the balance anywhere MasterCard is accepted.

    It should go without saying that this is only applicable to people who meet the other requirements of applying for the Coles MasterCard in the first place. Please be aware that the offer to waive the annual fee is only available while you are a Coles team member.

      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Further to that information you shared, the annual fees for the Coles Low Rate MasterCard and Coles Rewards MasterCard will be waived (for a Coles team member) as long as that team member has a valid myColes card, Kmart for you card, Target for you card, or Officeworks team member card.

      Cheers,

      Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      If Coles asked you to submit documents (IDs, driver’s license, passport, utility bill, etc) as part of their verification process of your credit card application, you may need to complete the ‘Identity Verification Form’ and lodge this form at any post office that has Bank@Post facilities together with the documents they require.

      For your convenience, I’ve sent to your email the link to the Identity Verification Form.

      I hope this is helpful.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Drey,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, your bills should be under your name. If they’re not, you might need to contact Coles directly to confirm if there’s a substitute form of identification you can provide.

      I hope this has helped.

      Hi Richard,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Kindly note that you have come through to finder.com.au, an online comparison service that does not represent any credit card issuer, including Coles.

      Nonetheless, you may resubmit your application by clicking on the “Go to site” (green) button of your preferred Coles credit card on the table above.

      Do ensure that you meet the criteria below:

      1. You’re at least 18 years old.
      2. You’re a permanent Australian resident.
      3. You have a good credit history.
      4. You must have an after-tax income of at least $15,000 p.a.

      And you have the following information ready:

      1. Your complete name, date of birth, relationship status, and number of dependents
      2. Your email address, phone number, residential address, and residential status
      3. Your employer’s name, address, and phone number
      4. Details of your income from all sources
      5. Details about your expenses, which include all outstanding debts

      For further/direct assistance, I have emailed you Coles’ contact details as well.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,
      Ally
