It's really simple. The McGrath Foundation credit card offers the best interest rate around for both purchases and cash advances, plus $20 of your $40 annual fee goes to the McGrath Foundation, so you can feel good about paying it. The only downside is that there are no extra benefits like rewards points.

When I applied I was contacted very quickly and they were very polite, easy going and knowledgeable. Everything was explained simply but comprehensively. I was sent all the forms via email and others were easily downloaded. Everything was processed quickly and I got follow up calls to give me progress reports and to make sure I understood what was happening, which was something I really wasn't expecting to happen. Even when I got the card I got follow up calls to make sure I was comfortable with everything and happy with the service and other emails with updates. With that kind of service who wouldn't be happy. All seemed to be totally transparent. This is THE BEST service I have ever had from a financial service.

Can't think of a single con at all. My only direct service is by phone, I live in Northern NSW, nowhere near a branch, and every time I have needed to call, the service has been outstanding! Distance has been no barrier either. GREAT interest rates, I researched everything you could poke a stick at before I decided to apply with CMCU and ATM and internet service are hassle free. We've had our credit account with CMCU for around 2 years now and wouldn't change to anyone else!

I have no problem with the bank and will continue to recommend it. We switched from ANZ Visa as it was too expensive. The McGrath Visa card is great, the international exchange rate is good with no transaction fee, that is a bonus. And the donation to the foundation is really good. And it has encouraged us to make further donations. The only issue is the access to the card statement online is a little awkward.

They have a great rate for a credit card, and are great people to deal with, it is not a major bank. The only down side to being a credit union is the application process is a lot longer, they require a lot more info and do go through it all with a fine tooth comb. A bank is a lot quicker with applications.

From the first phone call I made to Community First, the staff were so helpful, friendly and always courteous. The Application for the Credit Card was so easy to complete, and even when I did have a question, I was made to feel at ease. The interest rates are so low on this card, plus being linked to the McGrath Foundation, make it very worthwhile in every sense. I have no hesitation in recommending it to everyone out there.
