Mozo snapshot

The new Coles Low Rate Mastercard combines a Mastercard and a flybuys card into one very convenient piece of plastic, with a low rate of 12.99% on regular purchases (19.99% cash advance rate) with 0% p.a. on balance transfers for up to 15 months. It also has a rewards scheme where you can earn 1 flybuys point per $2 you spend on the card at Coles Supermarkets.

Key features

It’s not only the competitive purchase rate and low $58 annual fee that makes this credit card attractive, there's also a tonne of points earning potential and convenience on offer.

The Coles Low Rate Mastercard card is linked to the Coles flybuys scheme so you'll earn 1 flybuys points per $2 you spend at Coles Supermarkets. Plus when you scan your flybuys barcode you’ll also earn normal flybuys points (1 point for every $1 spent) helping you to clock up rewards faster. Every time you redeem 2000 flybuys points at the checkout you get $10 off your shop instantly. 

Bear in mind that eligible purchases exclude Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, Special Promotions, BPAY payments, purchases of foreign currency and travellers cheques, transactions made in operating a business, bank fees and charges such as interest and ATM charges.

Tech savvy cardholders can also use the Coles Mobile Wallet App to view and activate flybuys offers on their phone, plus keep track of spending.

You’ll be able to use your Coles Low Rate Mastercard wherever Mastercard is accepted worldwide but just be aware you’ll be charged a 2.50% overseas transaction fee for all international purchases and cash advances (which includes hitting up the ATM), whether made in person or online. The card is also chip enabled so you can use the Mastercard PayPass functionality and “tap and go” for purchases under $100.

If you're looking to clear debt, the Coles Low Rate Mastercard is offering a 0% balance transfer offer for up to 15 months (Offer ends 31 March 2021). 

For regular purchases, it comes with up to 55 interest free days as long as you pay your balance off in full each month. Just remember that if you're taking advantage of the 0% balance transfer rate, no interest free days apply to new purchases. Another thing to keep in mind about this offer, is that if you've got some of that transferred balance left over at the end of the balance trasnfer period, it will start attracting interest at the higher 19.99% cash advance rate, so make sure you have a payment plan in place!

One last thing - keep in mind that terms and conditions apply to all these offers, so make sure you read the fine print carefully!

Any catches

You can only get $10 off your shop when you redeem 2,000 flybuys point at the supermarket checkout, it does not apply to Coles Express or Coles Online.

Set up automated repayments on the due date or you could be up for a $30 late payment fee. There is also a $2.25 fee when you pay your account at Australia Post and you’ll be charged $2.00 for every paper credit card statement you receive - so avoid this fee by opting to receive your statements and make payments online.
