1 Rate will apply to balance(s) transferred until that balance(s) is paid off. Balance Transfer Terms and Conditions and lending criteria apply. All applications are subject to Westpac approval. You cannot transfer a balance from a Westpac card or loan. You can transfer up to 95% of your available credit card limit. Your card must remain within its credit limit after the balance has been transferred. Balances cannot be transferred to a Mastercard® BusinessCard/Purchasing Card. Balance transfers do not earn Airpoints Dollars™ or hotpoints®. Payments you make to your Westpac credit card will first go to charges and interest accrued, then to cash advances and purchases, followed by balance transfers as they appear on your last statement. Payments will then be applied to transactions that have not yet appeared on a statement in the same order. If you have multiple balance transfer rates, payments will first be applied to the balance transferred on the highest interest rate. Interest rates are subject to change without notice. All new purchases, cash advances and any unpaid interest or fees will incur interest at the standard interest rate in accordance with the card’s Conditions of Use

2 If you have paid your last statement period closing balance in full, you will start your current statement period with a $0 balance owing. When you start your current statement period with a $0 balance owing, do not have a transferred balance on your credit card and pay your statement closing balance in full by its due date, you will get up to a specified number of days interest-free on your purchases. Cash advances are not purchases and have no interest free days. See credit card interest-free period page for how it works.

3 Eligible purchases exclude cash advances, charges, interest, tax payments, cash substitutes, business expenditure (excluding transactions made on a BusinessPLUS Mastercard), balance transfers, transactions on your nominated account(s) linked to your credit card, any transaction that is reversed, refunded or charged back.

Status Points earned on applicable credit cards only. For Airpoints Mastercards, Airpoints Dollars and Status Points will be earned on the first $60,000 of eligible spend in each relevant month only. The relevant month is the statement period set out in your statement. Any spend over $60,000 on eligible purchases in each relevant month will not earn Airpoints Dollars or Status Points. For hotpoints Mastercards, the amount of eligible spend that can earn hotpoints is capped at $60,000 a month. Any spend over $60,000 on eligible purchases in each relevant month will not earn hotpoints.

Eligible purchases exclude gambling chips or gambling transactions (including online gambling), cash advances, interest charges, tax payments or transactions on any nominated account(s) linked to your credit card or account, or any other purchase that Westpac deems ineligible for hotpoints Pay.
