Frequently asked questions

SmartPlan helps you stay on top of large purchases and balances by breaking them down into regular installments.1

Credit card balance SmartPlan

Turn any of your outstanding purchase, cash advance or promotional plan balances of $200 or more into a SmartPlan.  

Large purchase SmartPlan

Create a large purchase SmartPlan to help you pay off an individual ‘big ticket’ item of $500 or more that you’ve bought on your card in the last 30 days – think purchases such as a flight, hotel bill or even a new fridge.

The security of your card and information is extremely important to us. We have a range of security measures in place to ensure that your account is protected, including online. Westpac Added Online Security provides extra peace of mind when shopping online at participating retailers.

Monthly card fee $9

Duplicate statement fee $2.00 may be debited from your credit card account if you, or an additional cardholder, orders a copy of a statement that has already been issued for your account. This fee is debited from your account on or after the day you order the duplicate statement.
Non-Westpac Group ATM fee Although not a Westpac fee, using your card in a non-Westpac Group ATM may result in a charge to you. Avoid this fee by using one of Westpac’s extensive network of 2,900 ATMs across Australia (including any St.George, BankSA and Bank of Melbourne ATMs). Find a Westpac Group ATM.
Credit card surcharge In some instances, businesses may administer a ‘surcharge’ for credit card payments. Usually, these are a percentage fee of your purchase amount. Ask the merchant if a surcharge applies and how much it is before paying if you’re unsure.

Balance transfers into the Westpac Lite Card are not available.

1 SmartPlan Disclaimer: SmartPlan requires monthly payments to be made for the term calculated and at the applicable interest rate when the SmartPlan is entered into. All payments made to your account will be applied first to any SmartPlan instalments, so debts accruing a higher interest rate may be left unpaid during the SmartPlan term. Your balance transfer must have a maximum of 36 months and a remaining term of at least 3 months to be eligible for a SmartPlan. See SmartPlan for more details. SmartPlan cancellation takes up to 2 Business Days. Any SmartPlan Remaining Balance will revert to the variable interest rate for your balance type or special offer rate as applicable.

Be credit savvy: Before applying, consider a realistic credit limit and check all conditions, interest rates, fees and charges on your selected card.
