      Hi Dr. I.Sam,

      Thanks for your question.

      Westpac no longer offers cards that allow you to directly earn krisflyer miles. You may want to consider some of the cards on this page. They are linked to American Express’ Membership Rewards program, which allows you to transfer your points into Krisflyer Miles.

      I hope this has helped.

    I used my husbands card and I am a supplement card holder as well, however used his card for my overseas travel tickets for my daughter and myself. Am I still entitled to Travel Insurance cover?

      Hi Debbie,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, additional cardholders are also eligible for this travel insurance as well as their dependent children.

      Please note that “if a family is travelling together, only one person can claim the benefits payable to the cardholder. The others can only claim as a spouse or child, or parent (for Singapore Airlines Westpac credit card).”

      All the best,

      Hi JB,

      Thanks for your question.

      To our knowledge, American Express credit cards are the only cards that allow you to earn points by paying your tax bill and/or government charges.

      Please see this page for more information.

    Is the Westpac Singapore Airlines Platinum Visa/Amex still a better combo for earning KrisFlyer miles compared to the new Black range?

    • finder Customer Care
      JacobAugust 25, 2013Staff

      Hi Liski.

      Great question.

      The Singapore Airlines Platinum card currently allows you to earn up to 1.5 KrisFlyer Miles per dollar spent with the American Express card and 0.5 points per dollar spent with the Visa card.

      If you went for the Altitude Black card, you can currently transfer Altitude points to KrisFlyer Miles at the rate of 2 Altitude Points for 1 KrisFlyer Mile.

      Both cards have uncapped points earning.

      You can read more on transferring frequent flyer points / miles on this page.

      Thanks for your question.

    Just wondering if there is a points cap for this card based on billing cycle like the Altitude Cards?


    • finder Customer Care
      JacobAugust 17, 2013Staff

      Hi Richard.

      There is currently no points cap with this card. Points will not expire provided that you’ve used or earned points in the last 36 months.

      Thanks for your question.

      Hi Sydney. Apologies, we can’t help with this one. We focus on cards that are available to Australian residents and people visiting Australia on a long stay visa only. Jacob.

    Does the card allow access into the airport lounges?

      Hi Scott. This card does not come with any specific lounge access benefits. However, as a Kirsflyer member, you can use your status points to get access to Star Alliance lounges all over the world. Hope this helps.

    Hi Ravi. I’m not sure about the staff discount best to ask someone at your work. As for earning points, you will earn points on your everyday purchases, buying groceries etc. There are exclusions, generally relating to cash advances and balance transfers, but there are others too, so you should consult the PDS for further information. Cheers.

      Hi Jan. The annual fee for the Singapore Airlines Westpac Platinum Card is $250 payable from the first statement after you activate your card. The promotional offer refers to a low introductory interest rate of 1.99% for 12 months. After the 12 month introductory period, the annual purchase rate of interest will be charged on any outstanding balance transfer debt. Thanks for your question.
