Frequently Asked Questions

At Westpac, we’re all about finding ways to help local people and communities grow. We have chosen these four charities across a variety of causes we’re passionate about, and of course for the great things they do for New Zealanders.

We want to make sure there is an even spread of the donations we receive. We’ll distribute each $10 donation evenly between the four charities so they will each receive $2.50 per donation.

No, the donation will be made directly from Westpac.

Your money will be deposited into your account within 7 days of your 5th transaction. If there are public holidays during that time, it may take longer than 7 days.

The $10 will go into the account linked to the card that you make your 5th Apple Pay payment from. You’ll need to keep the account open for 7 days after the 5th transaction to receive the payment into your account.

No, each customer is only eligible to receive the $10 payment once per customer. See below for information on ‘Additional cardholders’. 

Any transaction made via Apple Pay with any eligible Westpac debit or credit Mastercard (whether in store, in apps or online) on any eligible Apple device will count towards your 5 transactions. However, a recurring payment set up through Apple Pay may not be counted as part of your 5 transactions.

Additional cardholders: If you are an additional cardholder, your transactions made via Apple Pay will be counted collectively with the main cardholder’s Apple Pay transactions, and $10 will be paid into the main cardholder’s account.

Joint cardholders: If you have a joint account you’ll both be eligible for the $10 payment if you each make 5 transactions via Apple Pay by 16 May 2019. If one joint account holder makes 6 transactions and the other makes 4, the $10 will only be paid to the account holder who made 6 transactions.

It's the time-frame of our promotion.

You are eligible for the promotion until 11.59pm of the last day of the promotion.

The deadline of the promotion is your purchase deadline. You do not need to wait until the payment has been processed.

You will see “Westpac Apple Pay thank you” on your statement for the $10 payment.

You can check your previous transactions in your Wallet app by clicking on the menu button on the bottom right of your screen then select the transactions tab.
