Types of Coles credit cards

Coles Mastercard offers three credit card options: a rewards credit card, a low rate credit card and a no annual fee card.

Low rate credit cards

The Coles Low Rate Mastercard offers a 12.99% p.a. interest rate on purchases and offers up to 55 interest-free days on purchases if you pay your balance in full by the due date on your statement. It also offers 0.5 points per $1 spent at Coles Supermarkets. Points are awarded in whole numbers and rounded down. These points are in addition to the points you'll earn by scanning your flybuys membership barcode (on the back of the card).

Compare Low Interest Rate Credit Cards

No annual fee credit cards

The Coles No Annual Fee Mastercard is one of the few credit cards that offers both no annual fee for life and a rewards program. This means you can get extra value from the card without wondering if your reward points will balance out the cost of the annual fee. With the Coles No Annual Fee Mastercard, you'll earn 0.5 flybuys points per $1 spent on eligible purchases anywhere you use the card, as well as standard flybuys points for spending with partnered retailers. Points are awarded in whole numbers and are rounded down, meaning you earn 1 point per $2 spent with this card.

Compare No Annual Fee Credit Cards

Rewards credit cards

The Coles Rewards Mastercard offers 2 flybuys points per $1 spent on all eligible purchases – even if they are not with flybuys partners. When compared to some other rewards credit cards, it has a competitive annual fee of $99 and also offers no international transaction fee on purchases when you shop overseas or online with stores based overseas.

The benefits of banking with a Coles Mastercard

A Coles Mastercard credit card gives you access to the following benefits:

  • flybuys rewards

Coles credit cards are linked to the flybuys rewards program and double as your flybuys membership card, with your membership details printed on the back of your credit card. If you want to earn more flybuys points for your spending, both the Coles Rewards and Coles No Annual Fee cards offer you points for eligible purchases made anywhere. The Coles Low Rate Mastercard also offers points per $1 spent on eligible purchases at Coles Supermarkets. flybuys has a huge range of program partners and reward options, including travel rewards, frequent flyer points, holiday packages, merchandise and gift cards.

  • Free delivery for Coles Online shopping

Shop at Coles Online and enjoy free delivery for orders worth $100 or more when you pay with your Coles credit card. Note that normal delivery terms and conditions apply and this offer excludes spending on tobacco and tobacco-related products. Free delivery is also unavailable for remote delivery orders.

  • Get money off your shopping at Coles

If you choose to use flybuys points to get money off at the checkout when you shop at Coles, you can scan the back of your Coles credit card and instantly redeem 2,000 flybuys points for $10 off your shopping at participating Coles Supermarkets. Note that you need a minimum of 2,000 flybuys points in your account to get money off your shop.

  • Balance transfer offers

You can save money on your existing credit card debt by transferring it to a Coles Mastercard with a balance transfer offer. For example, the Coles Rewards Mastercard offers 0% p.a. on balance transfers for the first 16 months you have the card, allowing you to save money on interest charges and pay down your debt faster. Any balances remaining after the promotional period will attract interest at the cash advance rate.

  • Earn frequent flyer points and status

      Hi Bev,

      Thank you for your question and for contacting finder.com.au – we are a financial comparison website and general information service designed to help consumers make better decisions. Please note that we are not affiliated with any company we feature on our site.

      With Coles Mastercard, when you withdraw cash from your account, even when it is on credit balance, it will be treated as a cash advance. So this means that when you access funds from your account that transaction will incur cash advance fee. You may like to contact Coles directly if you wish to confirm the fees.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Renay,

      Thanks for your question.

      Each time you use your Coles credit card to withdraw at an ATM overseas, you’ll incur overseas ATM withdrawal fee of $4. When used for purchases, you’ll be charged currency conversion fee, the rate of which depends on which Coles credit card you have.

      Cheers,

    If I pay the total balance owning each month – will I avoid interest charges?

    • Staff
      LouJanuary 30, 2017Staff

      Hi Teri,

      Thanks for your question.

      As long as you pay your total balance in full every month and not just the required monthly repayment, you’ll not incur interest charges on purchases.

      Cheers,

    The primary cardholder can link a Fly Buys card to that card. Can you please advise if the additional cardholder can also link a Fly Buys membership to the additional card?

    Thank you!

      Hi Jo,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, you can link more than one card to a flybuys account, which means you can earn more points with multiple cardholders. Please contact the flybuys Service Centre to find out more information on how to do this.

    When i apply for coles credit card at that time i missed to enter promo code for the kmart $50 voucher but now i got credit card and want to take benefits if kmart voucher so how can i?

    • Staff
      MayAugust 29, 2016Staff

      Hi Jonny,

      Thank you for your question.

      Unfortunately, the $50 *Kmart Gift Card bonus will only be given if you have submitted the secure online application before 31 August 2016 and used the promotion code ‘PROMO1’ and made an eligible purchase (excluding cash advances) within 30 days of card approval.

      If you’ve missed using the promo code when you applied for the card, I’m afraid you’ll not be eligible to receive the bonus gift card from Kmart. Though depending on the credit card you got, you are still entitled to receive other benefits attached to your card.

      Cheers,
      May

    Hi,

    I am looking at having a cosmetic medical procedure that will cost approx $12,000 in March 2016.

    Can you confirm that if I sign up for a credit card this would qualify as an interest free purchase?

    Thanks

      SallyDecember 16, 2015Staff

      Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for your question.

      Coles list ineligible purchases as cash advances, credit fees or charges, credits, refunds, reimbursements, business purchases or balance transfers into your account. If you’re unsure, you may need to contact Coles on 1300 306 397 to confirm that your surgery is considered an eligible purchase.

      Cheers,

    Hi Jonathan, so far all of my transactions aren’t being classed as “Interest Free Purchases” when I view them through the online Coles Mastercard portal.

      JonathanDecember 4, 2015Staff

      Hi Desmond, thanks for your response.

      If your transactions are not being classed as eligible purchases it would be ideal to contact Coles directly on 1300 306 397 to resolve the way your transactions are being charged. The operating hours are Mon-Fri 8.00am – 9.00pm, Saturday 8.00am – 8.00pm, Sunday 8.30am – 8.00pm.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

    I wanted to take advantage of the “0% p.a. for 15 months” interest free offer advertised here however the link to the application returned a 404 error. I instead applied directly through Coles, got approved but have since found out that my transactions aren’t being classed as interest free transactions in my account. Is there something you need to do?

    • Staff
      JonathanDecember 2, 2015Staff

      Hi Roger, thanks for your inquiry!

      The interest free promotion applies to any eligible purchases, which exclude transactions such as cash advances or cash equivalent transaction. To allow us to assist you further what types of transactions are not being classed as interest-free transactions?

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
