Expert review

The Westpac Low Rate Credit Card currently gives you a way to get more value from your spending, offering up to $400 back on your account if you are a new cardholder and meet the minimum spend requirements. While a lot of cashback offers have one spend requirement you need to meet (e.g. $3,000 in the first 3 months), this one technically has four – but it does mean you can get some cashback even if you only spend $1,000 over a couple of months when you first get the card.

How to apply

You can apply for the Westpac Low Rate Credit Card online in 10 minutes and receive a response in 60 seconds. Check that you meet the eligibility criteria and have the necessary information to complete the application first.

Eligibility criteria

  • New cardholder. The cashback offer is only available when you apply for the Westpac Low Rate credit card as a new cardholder before 30 June 2022.

Card benefits

  • Up to $400 cashback. Get a $100 cashback each month when you spend $1,000 or more on eligible purchases within the first 4 statement periods from card approval. Eligible spending covers most everyday spending.

The $100 cashback will be credited to your account within 60 days of meeting the minimum spend requirement for that statement period.
  • Balance transfer offer. You can consolidate your existing debts with a 6.99% p.a. on balance transfers for 12 months with no balance transfer fee. Any remaining balance after the promotional period if subject to the variable cash advance rate, currently 21.49% p.a.
