55 Day Platinum Visa credit card (no longer for sale)

Latest Information

Our 55 Day Platinum Visa card is no longer available for sale. Here's a full list of our available credit cards.

If you currently have a 55 Day Platinum Visa credit card, nothing has changed. All benefits, features and fees outlined on this page still apply.

The important numbers

As an existing 55 Day Platinum Visa cardholder, you’re able to:

  • Pay no annual card fee if you spend $10,000 on the card each year (the annual card fee is otherwise $90).*
  • Make purchases at a variable rate of 20.09% p.a.
  • Withdraw cash at a variable rate of 21.49% p.a.
  • Pay no interest for up to 55 days when you pay off your balance in full each month.

What fees apply to this card?

Annual card fee $90.* If you spend $10,000 or more on purchases in a year, this fee will automatically be waived - and will continue to be waived each year you spend this amount. This is calculated from the anniversary of the first transaction on your account.*
Foreign transaction fee

3.0%

Payable as a percentage of the Australian dollar value of any foreign transaction.

Applies for transactions in a foreign currency, or in Australian dollars but processed by an overseas merchant or financial institution.

Note: It may not always be clear to you that the Merchant or entity processing the transaction is located outside Australia. More about this fee.

Cash advance fee

An administrative charge of 3% of the value of the transaction will apply to each cash advance made on your card account.

These charges will appear on your credit card statement directly below the relevant cash advance.

Missed payment fee $15 each statement cycle that the minimum monthly payment is not paid by the statement due date.
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.
Over-limit fee If your card account was opened before 4 June 2012, a fee of $15 may be debited from your credit card account every time you exceed your credit limit during a statement cycle. It is debited from your account in that statement cycle, on or after the day(s) your credit limit is exceeded. This fee may also be charged whenever your account is over limit at the commencement of a statement cycle.

Follow these tips to minimise credit card fees and charges.
