What is the value of my Awards points?

The value of your Awards points could vary from product to product and how many points you can earn on your regular purchases will also depend on the earn rate of your credit card.

For example, if you have the Commonwealth Bank Awards American Express card, you need to spend approximately $11,600 to get a $100 Myer Gift card. Compared to the Myer Visa Card, where you need to spend $10,000 to get a $100 Myer Gift Card. So you need to consider whether the $1,600 difference is worth getting your rewards immediately. Myer Visa restricts you to only rewards only from Myer, whereas the CommBank Awards program provides you with a larger range such as frequent flyer points and gift card facilities.

You can compare some examples of how many points you'll need to redeem specific products below.

As a general guide, for beauty and lifestyle purchases you need to spend approximately double the RRP to be able to claim 100 per cent of the product back. In this case, it may be more worthwhile to use your points on a homeware product to truly reap the benefits of the CommBank Myer Points System.

Keep in mind that the points system may vary item to item and beware of changing terms and conditions.
