Simple steps for managing your money

We’re creating new tools and guidance so you can stay in control of your everyday spending habits.

Transaction Notifications & Spend Tracker

There’s a new way to keep track of your credit card spending.

We’ve updated the CommBank app with two new features - Transaction Notifications & Spend Tracker.

Transaction Notifications means you’ll receive instant notifications every time you pay or are charged for something using your credit card.

Each of your transactions will be automatically categorised in
Spend Tracker so you know exactly what you’re spending your money on.

Transaction Notifications will only be available to credit card holders who do not have an additional card holder.
