That’s enough points for a Canon Digital Camera!

Westpac has given its Altitude Black bonus points offer a facelift today. If you apply by 28 March 2018, and spend $5,000 on eligible purchases in the first 90 days, you’ll receive a whopping 80,000 bonus points. As always with the Westpac Altitude Black card, you have the option of earning either Westpac Altitude points or Qantas Points.

So, what exactly could 80,000 bonus Altitude points get you?

You can redeem your points for anything ranging from cashback, homewares and fashion to technology and travel from the Westpac Altitude store, but you could also get a $300 JB Hi-Fi gift card (71,100 Altitude points) which you could exchange for a Canon Digital Camera, a pair of Beats Powerbeats3 wireless earphones (72,175 Altitude points) or an Adrenalin BridgeClimb Sydney experience (77,050 Altitude points) with your bonus points bounty!

These are just a few examples of how you could reward yourself with your points, but make sure to compare your options in the Westpac Altitude store before you redeem your points.

As well as the bonus points, cardholders can look forward to earning points on their Mastercard. It offers 1.250 Altitude points per $1 spent in Australia and overseas.

The rewards don’t end here either. You’ll be glad to know that you can cut vacation costs with complimentary international travel insurance and transit accident insurance. Plus, Altitude Rewards members can register for two visits to Priority Pass Lounges each year, so you can relax before your next flight in style.

You can take advantage of a 24/7 personal concierge who can help you with everything from organising travel plans to booking restaurant reservations or concert tickets. You can also spend with peace of mind knowing that your account is protected by Westpac Added Online Security and a Fraud Money Back Guarantee.

Although this card is packed with rewards and extra features, it has a standard annual fee of $395. But if you apply by 28 March 2018, you can save with a reduced annual fee of $250 in the first year. The card also has a purchase rate of 20.24% p.a. and a cash advance rate of 20.74% p.a., so it’s best suited to cardholders who pay off their balance in full each statement period to avoid interest.

The Westpac Altitude Black offers a competitive bonus points offer and lots of extra features, but it’s not suited to everyone. With a hefty annual fee and a recommended income of $75,000 p.a., make sure that you meet the eligibility requirements and compare the fees and features of the card with other offers on the market before you apply.
