Expert review

The Commonwealth Bank Awards credit card is the bank’s entry-level rewards product. Cardholders will earn 1 Awards point per eligible $1 spent, but it has a lower annual points cap than some more premium Awards cards.

How to apply

You can apply for the Commonwealth Bank Awards card online. Before you get started, check if you meet the eligibility criteria and that you have the necessary information.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency. You must be legally allowed to work in Australia. If you are not a permanent resident or citizen you will need to provide your visa details.
  • Credit history. You must not be currently bankrupt. You can get your credit score and copy of your comprehensive credit report for free through Finder.

Card benefits

  • CommBank Awards program. Earn 1 Awards point per $1 spent on eligible purchases. This covers most of your everyday spending, with exclusions for transactions including cash advances, BPAY transactions and payments to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Points are capped at 50,000 per year. Your points won't expire and you can also earn uncapped Bonus Points when you shop with bonus partners.
  • Rewards redemption. You can redeem your points for retail items through the Awards eShop, as well as gift cards, statement credits or charity donations. You can also shop with points in-store at Myer and Flight Centre. If you're a frequent flyer, you could also transfer your points to a partner program, including Qantas Frequent Flyer and Velocity Frequent Flyer. With this option, you can transfer a minimum of 2 Awards points for 1 Velocity Point, or 2.5 Awards points for 1 Qantas Point. To directly earn Qantas Points for your spending, you can opt in for an annual fee of $30.
