Coastline Credit Union credit card review

Coastline Credit Union doesn’t try to compete with big lender that offer a huge selection of credit cards. Instead, it focuses on offering a basic rewards Visa credit card that gives customers cashback using the “rewarder” program.

Unlike other cashback rewards offered by many financial institutions, Coastline Credit Union rewards are earnt on the credit card but loaded onto a separate “rewarder” card.

This “rewarder” card basically turns into a EFTPOS card that Coastline Credit Union members can use to buy goods and services at any shop that accepts EFTPOS. It’s important to note that there is a monthly cap on how many points can be earned.

The interest rate on the Coastline Credit Union Visa credit card is moderately high, so it would best suit a customer who knows they usually pay off their credit card bill at the end of the month.
