Thoughts about AU LIT credit card

Lounge access is chargeable but still capped at 4/quarter

Lounge access is one of the chargeable features of the AU LIT credit card. You can buy 1 lounge access at 199+GST or 2 lounge access at 299+GST. Seems fair, but here is a bummer. Visits are capped at 4/quarter. What it means is I cannot buy 2 lounge visits every month (i.e. 24 visits for a year) even if I am willing to pay.

No fuel-surcharge waiver

AU LIT credit card will charge you a fuel surcharge unless you activate this feature for 49/month + taxes. This is very strange. The lamest of the lame credit card out there offers a fuel surcharge waiver. By enabling this feature, you are in a way paying a 1% surcharge for the first ~2,000 spend on fuel. The meagre 1% benefit only accumulates post that. 

Feature charges are not available on the website. Only on the app.

Strangely, the feature charges are not available on the website anywhere. They are only available in the app. So, if one has to do the cost-benefit analysis of the AU LIT credit card, one needs to download the app and give a host of permissions to the bank. 


I don’t find any reason to apply for an AU LIT credit card. Just in case you want an AU Bank credit card, for its offers or any other reason
