Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard review

The Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard is the entry level credit card product from supermarket giant, Coles MasterCard.

The No Annual Fee MasterCard combines the features of a flybuys loyalty card and a MasterCard credit card. It costs nothing to own and keep but no annual fee also means no frills. The No Annual Fee MasterCard allows you to earn 0.5 flybuys points per dollar spent.

The following Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard review will explain how to use the card to earn flybuys points and outline the important conditions of the product.

Benefits of the Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard

  • No annual fee. As the name suggests there is no annual fee on this credit card.
  • 0.5 flybuys points per dollar spent. The Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard rewards you with flybuys points when you make an eligible purchase on the card. If you’re not already a member of the flybuys program, you will be automatically enrolled when you apply for the Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard. Please note: Earned points expire if your flybuys account is inactive for 12 months.
  • Points are earned on all purchases. flybuys points are earned on all eligible transactions — all over the world. Use the card for an eligible transaction wherever MasterCard is accepted and earn flybuys points.
  • Earn more when you shop at Coles. Link your flybuys membership to your Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard when you apply for the product and you’ll earn more flybuys points when you shop at Coles and flybuys partners.
  • flybuys dollars. Redeem your flybuys points for flybuys dollars. flybuys dollars can be used for money off your next shop at Coles or Liquorland or change of tires at Kmart Tire Auto. 2000 flybuys points is about $10. Redeem points for dollars at the following flybuys partners: Coles, Liquorland, First Choice Liquor, Kmart, Target, and Kmart Tyre Auto.
  • flybuys points are a bonus. Credit cards that offer rewards generally also charge an annual fee. This means you have to spend a certain amount on the card each year to get the cost of the annual fee back in the form of rewards value. There’s no required spend to break even with the Coles No Annual Fee Rewards Card. No annual fee flybuys rewards card products are not common.
  • Interest-free days. Earn up to 62 days interest-free on purchases when you pay the full balance off each month. Interest-free days do not apply if you’re carrying a balance from month to month, like when transferring a balance to a credit card under a balance transfer promotion. Up to 62 days interest-free gives you an extra month interest-free if you need a little extra time to pay back a couple of one-off, large purchases.
  • Free delivery when you order from Coles Online. Receive free delivery on your orders from Coles online when you spend $100 or more with your Coles MasterCard from the online store. Offer can be withdrawn at any time. Offer excludes tobacco and tobacco related purchases and remote delivery orders.
  • Wallet-friendly. Keep this card in your wallet, use it as your flybuys card when you shop, and pay the account in full when it’s due.
  • Apply for a balance transfer anytime. You can apply for balance transfer upon request at anytime from once your account is set up (your card must also be linked to your online account). Once your card is linked to your online account a request can either be made through the Coles Customer Care team or by filling in a balance transfer request via the Balance Transfer PDF available on the Coles MasterCard website.

    So what your telling me is that Mastercard manage to delay purchases made with the Coles card while processing purchases made with my other cards is done withing hours?

    Wouldn’t it be in Coles interest then to talk to Mastercard and point out they’re the only ones that have their transactions held up for so long?

    If they keep holding up ONLY Coles transactions perhaps you could do a deal with Visa instead?
