CommBank Awards Program
Reward your business every time you spend
Enjoy rewarding your business, simply by doing what you’re already doing. All you need is your CommBank Business Awards credit cards to earn Awards points every time you spend. It’s an easy way to make purchasing for your business even more valuable for you.
The CommBank Awards Program is the largest credit card rewards program in Australia1. It’s all about choice, freedom and value for money for you and your business. You’ll receive two cards on each account, a CommBank Business Awards American Express® Card and a CommBank Business Awards MasterCard® to maximise your Awards points earning potential. The points earned from your business spending and transactions are awarded to the primary account holder.
CommBank Awards points never expire so you can save them up for your choice of reward. Choose from thousands of items, travel, gift cards or even for cash2 – we'll credit it straight into your account so you can treat yourself to whatever you like.
