What rewards can I get with my hotpoints?

Do hotpoints expire or have a time limit?

Yes, hotpoints last for three years unless you cancel your card or switch to a non hotpoints Westpac credit card such as an Airpoints credit card. In both instances, your hotpoints will expire 90 days from the date you close your hotpoints credit card account.

Once your request to cancel or switch your hotpoints credit card has been processed, you will not be able to do the following during the 90 day expiry period:

  • redeem hotpoints online (only over the phone by calling 0800 861 862);
  • redeem hotpoints for hotpoints Pay; or
  • use the Points + Pay mechanism.

You can keep track of any other points that are due to expire on your monthly credit card statement and in the “My Account” section when you are logged in to the hotpoints website.

How do I know how many hotpoints I’ve earned?

You can see how many hotpoints you have by logging in to Westpac One, where your hotpoints balance will show on the hotpoints section of the accounts page. Your monthly credit card statement also shows hotpoints that you've earned or redeemed and any points that are due to expire.
