Mozo snapshot

Help your rewards points fly higher with the 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Credit Card Award winning Coles Rewards Mastercard that earns you 2 juicy flybuys points per $1 on eligible spends, plus a bonus 1 point per $1 spent when you also scan your flybuys card at the Coles checkout. The great thing is the points are uncapped and never expire, so you can save them up for as long as you like! And you'll receive this competitive flybuys points program without the high price tag, with a low $99 annual fee. 

It's not only designed for shopping in Australia but is also a top choice for travel with no foreign exchange fee on overseas purchases. Mozo's experts ranked it as one of the market's best travel credit cards in the 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Travel Money Awards.

Key features

While the Coles Rewards Mastercard has a standard purchase rate of 19.99%, you'll have plenty of breathing room to pay off your balance, with up to 55 interest free days. 

As expected the Coles Rewards Mastercard is linked to the Coles’s flybuys scheme earning you 2 flybuys points per $1 on eligible spends and an additional 1 point per $1 spent at Coles and other flybuys partners when you scan your flybuys card. Once you've clocked up 2,000 flybuys points you can redeem $10 off your shopping at Coles Supermarkets.

This card is also really convenient - it's like having your Coles Rewards Mastercard and flybuys all in one. All you need to do to claim your flybuys points at the checkout is scan the flybuys barcode on the back of your card. Easy!

As part of the Mastercard network you can use it wherever Mastercard cards are accepted worldwide and pay via "tap and go" for purchases under $100 with Mastercard PayPass.

This is also a great card to take with you on your next overseas trip or shop online at international stores as there are no international transaction fees on purchases made with the card, which is why it took out an award in the 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Travel Money Awards.

And if you want to blast away a niggling balance before starting your spending, there is a 0% balance transfer rate for 6 months on offer (1.5% BT fee applies). Just keep in mind that any remaining balance after the 6 months are up will start attracting interest at the higher 19.99% cash advance rate, and while you're using the balance transfer offer, you won't get any interest free days on new purchases made on the card.

Finally, just a reminder that terms and conditions apply to all these offers, so make sure you read the fine print carefully!

Who is it good for

The Coles Rewards Mastercard is great for those looking to earn juicy flybuys points on their everyday shop.

Any catches

While you'll get $10 off your shopping at Coles Supermarkets when you redeem 2,000 flybuys points, keep in mind Coles Express, and Coles Online are excluded.

How do we calculate the rewards?

To work out the "Rewards value minus fees" in our Rewards Revealer we:

  • calculate how many points you'd get each year,

  • figure out how many flights or gift cards or cashback credits you could get for those points,

  • work out what that's actually worth to you,

  • take off the annual fee you'd pay.

More details:

  • Our calculations are designed to help you compare the value of different rewards schemes. To do this, we've looked at earning a one-way Sydney-Melbourne flight excluding taxes and charges, a return Sydney-London flight excluding taxes and charges, a $100 shopping Gift Card and $100 cashback. Most cards will also offer other rewards, which may be worth more or less than the ones we've shown.

  • We have made no allowance for bonus points for using your card at specific merchants, introductory offers or special offers. We have not assigned any value to instant discounts, insurances, ticketing and concierge services or other such benefits.

  • Rewards value calculations do not take credit card interest into account. If you do not pay off your card each month you may be better off looking for a card based on interest rates than on the value of rewards.

  • In products that have more than one card, a different mix of spend between American Express / Visa / Mastercard will give different results. Mozo's Rewards Revealer lets you choose the mix based on the way you would use such a product, and gives you tailored results.

  • We assume flights purchased with airline points are 'classic' or 'reward' economy seats with restricted seat availability. 'Any seat' rewards will probably cost more.

  • To compare the value of flight rewards, we sample online retail flight prices once a quarter based on the average price on a Wednesday 3 months in advance but outside NSW school holidays. For domestic flights we take the lowest available fare from each flight on that day from Qantas Red e-deal, Virgin Australia Saver including baggage and Jetstar Starter including baggage. We calculate the average price excluding taxes and surcharges for each airline, and also the average across all airlines (which we use when rewards are travel agent vouchers). For international flights, we take the lowest available fares on that same Wednesday from each of Qantas, Emirates, Malaysian, Etihad, Singapore, Cathay Pacific and Thai, assuming a return flight 2 weeks later, calculate the average price before taxes and surcharges and use this as our assumed cost of a flight on any airline.

  • Shopping rewards are based on $100 gift cards from a major national department store.

  • We make every effort to ensure our calculations are correct and up to date but make no guarantees.

    Rewards add up quickly and great customer service.

    I like the rewards side of this card, because the amount I can redeem for throughout the year offsets the annual fee. The one thing I do dislike about this card is that they removed the option to pay it off over the counter. Having said that, one end of month I didn't transfer the money in time and got a $30 late fee, which was waived after calling them.

    Competitive Annual , rewarding, and easy to track.

    It's cheap. Interest rates are not a factor because I settle before interest becomes due. Fly buys gives me $10 every few weeks. Helps stretch the budget and while I'm not that far ahead after annual fee, I am ahead.

    A reliable, feature-rich card that can be of value

    A quick way to ensure you get some points just by doing your shopping and buying your fuel at Coles. It had a 0.0% balance transfer feature when I got it, as well as a long interest free period for purchases, so the features made this really worthwhile for a period of time.
