Westpac was chosen ahead of a number of potential card providers due to its salary packaging card experience, national banking network, superior on-line access, value and additional banking benefits. We look forward to working with Westpac to provide our card services.
Westpac offer two cards, namely an:
The card will be a Visa, so widely accepted in Australia and overseas.
The new cards will have PayWave capability, a new feature.
The cards will also be a fully integrated Westpac card product. You will be able to access all your information (statements, balances, contact details) at www.westpac.com.au
It is worth noting, you will not need to visit a Westpac branch and provide 100 points ID. Therefore, swapping to the Westpac card has been made very easy.
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has changed the card regulations, limiting the transaction fees banks may now charge on card transactions. Westpac has chosen to continue its services, but must now introduce an annual card fee.
The Westpac card fee is $66 (incl. GST), per card, per year. The fee is payable on the primary card (employee) and the secondary card (eg. partner), if you choose an additional card. The fee will be deducted annually from your salary (pre tax) when the card service commences.
Westpac has advised they will offer all cardholders discounts on a number of banking and financial services. Full details will be provided shortly.
