Terms & Conditions
Credit criteria, fees and charges apply. Switches, upgrades or Westpac group staff are ineligible. This promotion may be varied or withdrawn at any time and is not available in conjunction with any other promotion. Online only - Cashback and Balance Transfer promotion: The promotional balance transfer and cashback offers on this page are only available when you apply via this website (you will not be eligible for these offers if you apply in Branch or via Call Centre or any other website). These promotional offers are not available if you apply under the Westpac Premier Advantage Package. Be credit savvy: Before applying, consider a realistic credit limit and check all conditions, interest rates, fees and charges on your selected card. +Cashback promotion: The cash back offer is available when you apply and are approved for a new Low Rate credit card between 15th July 2020 and 2nd December 2020 and spend $1,000 on eligible purchases within 90 days of card approval. Eligible purchases do not include interest, fees and charges, cash, or ATM cash advances, cash equivalent transactions, gambling transactions, payments to the Australian Tax Office, government charges, BPAY or similar transactions (such as Post Billpay), refunds and balance transfers debited from the card account. The $200 cashback will be paid as a statement credit to your Low Rate credit card account within 60 days of meeting the minimum spend criteria. If you currently hold, or have held Westpac Low Rate credit card in the last 12 months you are not eligible for this offer. This offer is available with a balance transfer promotion at card application. **Low Rate Balance transfer promotion: This offer is available when you apply for a new Low Rate credit card between 15th July 2020 and 2nd December 2020, and request at card application to transfer balance(s) from up to 3 non-Westpac Australian issued credit, charge or store cards. A balance transfer fee of 1% will apply to balance(s) transferred to a new Low Rate credit card. The balance transfer fee will be charged to the card account on the same day the balance(s) are debited to the account. The promotional rate will apply to balance(s) transferred (min $200 up to 80% of your approved available credit limit) for the promotional period. Activating your card triggers the processing of the balance transfer. The applicable variable cash advance rate will apply to any unpaid balance transfer amount remaining at the end of the promotional period. Westpac will not be responsible for any delays that may occur in processing payment to your other card account(s) and will not close the account(s). If your account has an interest free period for purchases, to be entitled to that interest free period, you need to pay off the 'Monthly Payment Balance' listed on your statement of account (not the full closing balance) by the relevant payment due date. 1 SmartPlan: SmartPlan is currently available for all Westpac consumer credit cards. Fees may apply. You need to register for Online Banking before you can set up a SmartPlan. Read the Online Banking terms and conditions (PDF 1MB) available at westpac.com.au. The establishment fee is charged upfront but is payable in monthly instalments over the term of your Large Purchase SmartPlan. This means that if you cancel your SmartPlan (or don’t make the required SmartPlan repayments) you must still pay the whole establishment fee, including any interest on the establishment fee. SmartPlan requires cardholders to make regular monthly payments for the full term and at the interest rate that applies when the SmartPlan is created. All payments made to your credit card account will be applied first to any SmartPlan instalments. Therefore, debts accruing a higher interest rate may be left unpaid during the SmartPlan term. Any balance transfer amounts on a SmartPlan must have a remaining term of between 3 and 36 months to be eligible for a SmartPlan. See Westpac SmartPlan Terms and Conditions (PDF 51KB) for more details. SmartPlan cancellation takes up to 2 business days. When a SmartPlan ends, any remaining balance will revert to the variable annual interest rate for your balance type or special offer rate as applicable. Cardholders keep interest-free days (if applicable) after a balance transfer when you pay your monthly payment (being your SmartPlan repayments plus the minimum monthly repayment on your credit card account) SmartPlan repayment. Autopay: A fixed dollar or percentage of your monthly credit card statement “closing balance” will be paid. If the “closing balance” is less than your nominated amount, only the “closing balance” will be paid. If your nominated amount falls below the “minimum payment due”, Westpac will debit the “minimum payment due”. Read the Apple Pay Terms and Conditions (PDF 1MB) before making a decision and consider if it is right for you. To use Apple Pay you will need an eligible card and a compatible device with a supported operating system. See our Apple Pay FAQs for more information.

* For cards with reward programs that allow you to earn points, unless otherwise noted, the best case scenario of everyday spending is used when calculating the spend required to earn a reward. Everyday spending does not include bonus points that may be earned by shopping with loyalty partners. For rewards programs that have monthly caps, we assume you stay under that cap and for products with two cards, we assume spending is with the highest earning card. For programs that allow you to convert points for air travel at a price that changes from day to day, we have assumed that the flight is $300 (taxes and charges inclusive).
