Based on Datamonitor’s Australian Financial Services Survey of 2,000 adult consumers.
Survey conducted in December 2007.
Analysis broken down by parameters including gender, age, state and income.
Survey findings related to specific providers.
There is a high level of satisfaction towards credit card providers, although it is highest towards smaller players and credit unions in particular. 50% of consumers who have their main credit card with a credit union are very satisfied with their provider.
Datamonitor’s research asked consumers for their views on the following statement – ‘I feel that the rewards that I get from my card make up for the annual fee that I pay’. Consumers’ responses underlined both scepticism towards the value of reward schemes and annoyance at the level of annual fees.
More consumers would like to arrange their credit card online than are currently doing so. While only 26% of consumers aged 35-44 arranged their main credit card online, 41% would like to do so.
