Types of Bankwest Credit Cards

The range of Bankwest credit cards include low rate, no annual fee, rewards, frequent flyer and business options. There are also premium platinum and World Mastercard options that provide additional perks for eligible cardholders, such as complimentary insurance and no international transaction fees.

  • Balance transfer credit cards

When you transfer your existing credit card balance to a new Bankwest credit card with a balance transfer offer, you can get an introductory low or 0% p.a. interest rate on the debt. This allows you to save money on interest charges and pay down your debt faster during the introductory period. After that, a standard variable interest rate will apply to any debt remaining from the transfer. See our step-by-step guide on how to conduct a balance transfer with Bankwest for further information.

  • Low rate credit cards

Bankwest low rate credit cards offer a low, ongoing variable interest rate on purchases. If you carry a balance from month-to-month, this low rate can help you save money on interest charges when compared to regular credit cards.

Learn more about Low Rate Cards

  • No annual fee credit cards

If you don't use your card regularly or want to cut down on card costs, you may want to consider a Bankwest credit card with no annual fee. This type of card is designed to offer affordable access to credit by not charging a yearly account fee. However, as these cards come with higher interest rates than other Bankwest products, you might want to consider a low rate card if you're partial to carrying your balance.

Learn more about No Annual Fee Cards

  • Rewards credit cards

Bankwest rewards credit cards let you earn Bankwest More Rewards points on all eligible purchases. You can then redeem these points for rewards such as travel, gift cards and merchandise from the Bankwest More Rewards store. Rewards credit cards usually come with higher annual fees, so make sure you're taking advantage of the perks to help offset the cost of the card.

      I have a Bankwest Platinum Debit card what fees are charged when using overseas ATMs and purchases. Thanks

      • Staff
        ChesterMarch 29, 2017Staff

        Hello Peter,

        Thanks for your question.

        As stated on https://www.finder.com.au/bankwest-platinum-debit-mastercard the Bankwest Platinum Debit MasterCard does not charge any fees when using the card overseas. Though please be reminded that international ATM withdrawals attract overseas withdrawal fee since you are using a non Bankwest ATM machine. All in all that would be the only fee that may only occur when you use your Bankwest Platinum Debit MasterCard overseas.

        Regards,
        Chester

        Hi Norman,

        Thanks for your question.

        Yes, you are still eligible to receive the bonus points that come with Bankwest Qantas World MasterCard even if you currently hold a Bankwest transaction account and a debit card, provided you are able to meet all other eligibility criteria for the offer.

        Just to let you know, the bonus offer for the Bankwest Qantas World MasterCard is not available to those who are upgrading from another Bankwest credit card to a Bankwest World MasterCard or those who currently hold a Bankwest Qantas MasterCard credit card or are a Complete Home Loan Package customer.

        Cheers,
        Anndy

      Hi There,

      I am currently looking at the Bankwest zero platinum Mastercard but before I change I’m a little cautious of the fees.I own a 28 degrees Mastercard for travel and online purchases but will dump it the moment I decide on another card which is possibly this one. I’m trying to do a proper comparison but finder doesn’t really cater for a side by side comparison between 2 popular, yet, similar cards. Why is that? Finder allows me to do comparisons with other cards but not these 2

      Thanks

        Hi Steve,

        Thank you for your inquiry.

        Sorry for the delayed reply. You can actually compare the two cards on this page. They are categorised as credit cards with no foreign transaction and $0 annual fees.

        Hope this has answered your question.

        Cheers,

        Hi Phyllis,

        Thanks for your question.

        Just to confirm, you have actually come through to finder.com.au, not Bankwest.

        According to the Bankwest Credit Cards Conditions of Use document, the card is only valid until the expiry date. Bankwest may, at their discretion, issue a user with a replacement card.

        You may wish to contact the Bankwest Customer Service team directly to request a replacement card.

        I hope this has helped answer your question.

        Thanks,

        Sally

      I applied for a bankwest platinum credit card and received an email saying to send in payslips. I don’t have that, but have not heard anything back yet nor have I received anything in mail. I applied on 23rd April and it is 11th may now. Is it normal to take this long to receive card in mail ?

      • Staff
        JonathanMay 12, 2015Staff

        Hi Ozeeee, thanks for your inquiry!

        If a credit card application has received conditional approval, your approval depends upon you providing verification of your details, usually payslips or personal identification. Full approval is granted once you have provided this information to a bank staff member and you have signed the contract agreement. If you have verified your details, it would be best to contact Bankwest directly in regards to the status of your application.

        Cheers,

        Jonathan
