Hassle-free, safer than cash

Reviewed and recommended by Cherril on 14 Oct 2016

I have a MasterCard for emergency use only, therefore it is not used that often. I always try to pay it off within the month so that there are no fees or high interest to pay. If i use the card in this way my yearly fees are waived and i never have interest to pay.

So I have a card that gives instant cash in any situation, which is safer than carrying a spare few thousand dollars around in my wallet. It’s convenient, hassle-free, and fantastic to know it’s there as a back-up emergency plan.

It's not bad, yet not the best

Reviewed and not recommended by Paul on 21 Sep 2016

The bank has been very helpful all the time. When I needed help it was easy to get via the phone.

My card fees are bigger than I would like, but all in all it’s not too bad a card. It’s good not being able to overdraw, which I thought was a handy thing.

Spend a lot for average rewards

Reviewed and not recommended by Ricky on 23 Aug 2016

As the title suggests, you must spend a lot to get an average amount of reward points. On the positive side, the time frame for points expiration is a fairly long time.

Cash back as a reward is a good bonus. There should be a card that combines rewards along with, say, Virgin Airlines or similar frequent flyer points .

My BankWest More Mastercard is terrific!

Reviewed and recommended by Paul Breen on 13 Mar 2015

My BankWest More MasterCard is widely accepted and easily used. Interest rate is low. Couldn’t get a better credit card. Have used it for internet purchases and am extremely happy with the security. Whenever I have had a query this is answered promptly and efficiently with a minimum of fuss.

Fees and charges are exorbitant

Reviewed and not recommended by Dotty on 28 Sep 2013

Fees are way too high! I think with the profits that banks make, they are overcharging for fees on credit cards. What more can you say – the fees are exorbitant! This is really annoying me – there is no more to say! What sort of game is this? Fees are too high!

Reasonably good deal

Reviewed and recommended by Helen on 17 Aug 2013

Bankwest is a reasonably good credit card. The bank has lots of ATM’s these days but the interest rates are better elsewhere, like ANZ and Commonwealth Bank. This is mainly good for daily transactions, but I don’t spend a lot of money, otherwise i would rack up a lot of debt!

I would not recommend this bank

Reviewed and not recommended by Joy on 02 Aug 2013

I’m not happy, and I would not recommend this bank to anyone the interest charged to me is too high and I have had no incentives I have never had any bonuses given to me. I would not recommend this bank. I will find another bank to offer me better.
