    •  

      we’ll refund you the cost of your membership to the value of $59

      Sounds like a one-off to me.

  •

    $200 Amazon.com.au Voucher - $59.00 annual fee = $141.00 Voucher.

    What items on amazon.com.au can I purchase using the Promotional Code?
    For the purpose of these terms and conditions, “eligible items” refers to any item sold by Amazon AU and will exclude: (i) items sold by third party sellers (including Amazon US) even if “fulfilled by Amazon”; (ii) digital purchases (such as e-books and app purchases); (iii) gift cards; (iv) subscription purchases (such as Prime, Kindle Unlimited, Amazon Music and Audible); and (v) delivery rates. Amazon's standard delivery rates and policies will apply to purchases made on amazon.com.au or via the Amazon app.

      Thanks for this! I'm new to Amazon, any advice on the best way to search for, or work out what items can be brought with the $200 voucher?

  • +2 votes

    I wish the 8TB Hard drives Amazon.com.au are stocking were listed WITH GST INCLUDED, instead of illegally excluding it.

    ("Item ships from USA") so you get stung with 10% GST at checkout, despite the $247 price on the WD being listed in AUD.
    Otherwise I'd consider this.

    So 200 - 59 + 59, $200 for a credit enquiry, wasted on Shitty CBA? Not even close.

  •  

    Those who have applied or held the CBA credit card in the last two years are eligible for this promotional offer or not…..?

  •  

    Is this just spend $500 anywhere or on Amazon AU? Not very clear.

    •  

      includes BPAY transactions, payments to the ATO but excludes balance transfers, cash advances and any purchase or transaction that is subsequently reversed or refunded

  •  

    Wow. I was avoiding for CC and time to apply for one :)

  •  

    Would this have no annual fee for those on the CBA homeloan wealth package?

  • +18 votes

    CBA cards are now the worst card on the market after axing the Amex. The transfer rate to airline partners is poor, expensive annual fee, very basic features.

    Isn't this deal still better?

    $250 cash beats a $200 gift card that has to be used for Amazon purchases.

      If you're going to have Amazon Prime for a year+, it won't. Also you have more than 90 days to spend the 500 which might be relevant for some

      Get both?

      Honestly, it's about time I abused the crap out of these sorts of offers. I don't need a new mortgage.. ever.. hopefully. Sans a divorce or something. So who cares about my credit rating.

        but the conditions for this offer say: "Offers exclude all other card types" ?

        •  

          This offer:
          Awards Credit Card
          Platinum Awards Credit Card
          Diamond Awards Credit Card

          Other offer:
          Low Rate
          Low Rate Gold

          I don't see an issue, the card types don't clash.

          You can't switch or upgrade (ie: you keep both cards).

          Anything I'm missing?

          •  

            @justtoreply: I believe if you hold or have held an existing credit card with CommBank within the last 12 months you’re ineligible for the voucher

            • +2 votes

              @Asaiyo: "who currently hold, or have held, any of the above cards types 12 months prior to applying"

              That statement is limited to the "above cards". Which don't clash between the deals

  • +3 votes

    So just to confirm cause I’m a bit of an idiot, I’m ineligible to upgrade from my current low rate credit card to the awards card to receive this deal?

    The annual fee is the killer.

    Cant sign out of principle.

    If im paying them 22% interest then it should be free prime and cc.

      You should be paying off the balance each month and paying 0% interest..

        I pay no interest or any fees on my Commonwealth Visa card.

          unless its bundled into your home loan it wont be a rewards card with no annual fees

          Debit visa or credit visa?

          •  

            @buckster: My Commonwealth Visa card is a Credit Visa Card; not a prepaid version. No fees, not bundled with a mortgage loan or anything and never had a loan actually. Decent credit limit; enough to buy a new car or two. Not associated with a rewards program; online it says I can "get automatic access to the (Awards) program with an Awards credit card" so I guess it could be upgraded if I wished, but never been interested enough to find out. Have had this card for about 35 years to replace the old "bankcard." Just use it as a convenience and pay it out before the due date. The interest rates are pretty steep if I didn't pay it out though; 18.99% p.a. on purchases, 21.24% p.a. on cash advances. I am sure the bank makes a little interest out of others! I also make use of a Qantas Cash (Mastercard) prepaid credit card, to keep an eye on our shopping budget. When buying online I prefer to use the prepaid one if PayPal is not accepted.

      •  

        And still be paying $59 per year.

        No thanks.

        • +1 vote

          You don't use cards like this after the first year, make use of the sign up bonus ($200 and annual fee offset by free prime membership) and then cancel and move on.

  •  

    Is this available for existing customers having a different credit card not the awards one?

    • +2 votes

      No, it says "Offers exclude all other card types"

      •  

        See my comment above. I don't think there's any problem..

        It'd be nice if we could amalgamate all these comments, it's a bit of a clutter of repetition.

  •  

    Thaks for da deal, was about to purchase on Amazon and found this, brilliant 😎

  •  

    I wonder if the $59 prime count as part of the minimum spend

  • +5 votes

    Sounds good! Don't think the Commonwealth Bank would give me another credit card though. Only have temp work lined up for now and they never make any money (interest) out of me with my OTT Visa card.
    I pay no fees either. Must be a huge disappointment to them.

    Have never had a loan either; saved for all my vehicles. When I took over $20,000 out to buy a new car last year they discretely took me aside to ask me what the money was for … and then asked if I required insurance lol. No, on both counts.

    Used to make a fair bit of interest years ago, so I am not impressed with these record profits the banks make these days yet next to no interest for the customers.

  •  

    Honestly, you're better off with one of the real cash back or points credit cards than this. As pointed out above, you need to pay for prime, the annual fee, and you're locked in to shopping at Amazon (or selling at a discoint in the classifieds).

    Use your finite amount of credit applications per year elsewhere. I don't bother for less than $400 clean profit after all the fees, etc.

    •  

      Typically I'd agree with you but I'm in a funny period where my 18 month Amex hiatus is not yet up, ANZ FF waiting period still not over, Westpac rejected me for no reason (more than double min income requirement, 700+ credit score), already have ANZ Travel Rewards… and mortgage is with CBA so this card's annual fee is waived. So this hit the sweet spot to tie me over.

      • +1 vote

        That last point about the annual fee is great.

        I saw a lot of people getting rejected for the bendigo bank card as well (despite 6 figure salaries, 100k+ in savings and 700+ credit scores.

        In the FIRE community, they're discussing how maybe the banks are onto us churners and rejecting.

              @Ameowzon: Yeah, that's it. Churning regularly (not just credit cards) is a good way to cut living expenses, and divert more funds to our investments, that's why it came up.

              There's also "FU" where you just get financially independent so that you can get "FU" to your boss if they try to get you to do something you don't like lol. It's more for those who enjoy working in their field and want to continue doing so without relying on it.

      •  

        I'm curious why you don't already have the CBA card though if you mortgage is with them and fee waived?

        •  

          Because there are much better cards to earn points on everyday spend. So like with any other card, I'll churn if there's no reason to hold on to it.

    I have recieved the statement credit for prime, still waiting on the voucher

  •  

    I just received my card today. I have two questions:

    1. I know I have to spend $500 on Amazon by 31 May 2019. But when do I get the $200 voucher? After I spend it, or after 31 May 2019?

    2. if I already have Prime, how do I extend it by a year? And once I do, when do I get it reimbursed?

    Thanks!

    •  

      The AU$200 voucher will be provided in the form of a Promotional Code sent to you by email usually within 30 days (but may take up to 60 days) of you meeting the eligibility criteria, provided you give us your current email address when you apply for your card.

  •  

    Do l get the offer if l also applied this one??

  •  

    Do you get pro-rata refund of annual fee if cancel?

    Hold card for 2-3 months then cancel after get free prime and $200 voucher. Get 3/4 of yearly fee refunded?

  •
