Take your points to a higher altitude.

We’re excited to announce that Westpac and American Express have formed a new partnership, introducing a choice of two new cards that are issued and serviced directly by American Express.

The new cards will be available exclusively for eligible Westpac cardholders, who can apply in early 2018.

They will allow you to continue earning accelerated Altitude Points or Qantas Points into your existing rewards account and includes great benefits such as:

  • high points earn rate
  • uncapped points
  • complimentary insurances
  • access to American Express benefits including Amex Offers and Amex Invites.

 

Currently, the Westpac-issued American Express card is linked to your Westpac credit card account. The new card will be separate and in addition to the current Westpac credit card account, with its own statement and credit limit.

You will need to complete an application to get a new card from American Express. Look out for more details on the new card in early 2018.
