Expert review

The Westpac BusinessChoice Rewards Platinum Mastercard is suited to small to medium-sized businesses that want to reward their spending with Qantas Points. You’ll earn points on business purchases in the Qantas Business Rewards account, which you can then transfer to any individual Qantas Frequent Flyer account to redeem for rewards. As you earn more points, you can access extra perks including bonus points, discounts on eligible flight fares and reduced Qantas Club membership fees. If you’re not already a member, the usual $89.50 membership fee will be waived when you sign up to Qantas Business Rewards when applying for this card.

    1) what is deemed a eligible business purchase?
    Telephone? mobile? internet expenses? power bill? to your work place,
    Rent of your work shop? Vehicle expenses i.e fuel bill, tyres,vehicle repairs? Products you use such as air conditioners? Refrigerant?Power tools? Equipment like duct lifters? Recovery units? Consumables oil, cleaning fluids? I guess any expense paid by the credit card that forms part of the operation of the business your in would be ok?

    2) Is there a limit on how many points you can accumulate in a month? in a year?

    3)i already have a personal credit card with westpac for the last 10 years is it a easier process to change it to a Westpac Business Choice Rewards Card?

      Hi Tawhiri, thanks for your question!

      1) As per Westpac’s Rewards terms and conditions; “Aquire Points are calculated on the number of Australian dollars charged to the card account in connection with purchases of goods or services (including any GST payable in respect of the goods or services) from merchants accepting a card.” As much as we would like to give an absolute rule on what types of transactions count as eligible purchases, this detail varies depending on each merchant as the agreement and type of service/ good is treated differently by Westpac. Generally we can advise that any transaction which accepts credit card payment will earn rewards points.

      2) This card has uncapped points earnings.

      3) To switch to another Westpac credit card you can apply via Online Banking to change your existing card, call Westpac on 1300 130 961 or visit a Westpac branch.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

      Hi Fabio,

      Thanks for your inquiry!

      Westpac credit cards with a dual card with AMEX can be eligible to earn points on ATO payments.

      For more information on this type of transaction please refer to guide on credit cards that offer points for payments to the ATO and see the points earned per $1 for government charges.

      Before you apply for your next card, make sure you carefully read over the eligibility requirements and terms and conditions and ensure you have organised the necessary documents before beginning the application.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

      Hi Geoff, thanks for your inquiry!

      The earnings rate for Acquire points is 0.67 per $1 spent. The conversion rate for Acquire points to Qantas Frequent Flyer points is 1:1. At this point there is no cap on the number of points you can earn in a year.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
