Last updated:  

A no interest, flat fee credit card with CommBank Rewards perks.

Coming in late 2020, the CommBank Neo card is a flexible alternative to buy now, pay later services and traditional credit cards. You'll be able to make purchases and pay them off over time - without paying any interest. Instead, when you use the card or carry a balance, you'll be charged a monthly fee of $10, $12 or $18 depending on your selected credit limit.

Expert review

The CommBank Neo card strays from other credit cards on the market because it doesn't charge interest. You can still pay off purchases over time (like regular regular cards), as long as you make the minimum repayments ($25 or 2% of your closing balance, whichever is greater). This structure makes the CommBank Neo more comparable to buy now pay later services.

How to apply

You can't apply for the CommBank Neo card just yet. But you can register your interest on the Commonwealth Bank website. While no specific eligibility criteria for the Neo has been defined, for most CommBank cards you'll need to meet the following criteria and have your documents handy.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency. Cards are typically available to permanent and temporary Australian residents as long as you're legally allowed to work in Australia.
  • Credit history. You must have a good credit score with no current bankruptcies. You can get your credit score and copy of your comprehensive credit report for free through Finder.

Card benefits

  • No interest charges. This card charges an ongoing rate of 0% interest. No interest doesn't mean no payments and you are still required to pay at least the minimum amount listed on each statement by the payment due date. This card works like a standard credit card and you can use it anywhere Mastercard is accepted, however, you can't use it for balance transfers or cash advances.
  • Don't use, don't pay. If you don't use the card at all for an entire statement period and have a $0 balance at the end of the period, the monthly fee will be refunded back to your account for that statement period.

Rates and fees

  • Monthly fee. A $12 monthly fee applies for a $1,000 limit, a $18 monthly fee applies for a $2,000 limit and a $22 monthly fee applies for a $3,000 limit. This fee is charged each month when you use the card or carry forward a balance from previous months.
  • Minimum payments. The minimum amount you have to pay off each statement period is $25 or 2% of the closing balance, whichever is greater.
