Documentation must be provided to show proof of loan or rent payments, as outlined under ‘Prize Restrictions’. The Promoter reserves the right to verify the authenticity of the documentation provided.

The prize may be awarded by electronic funds transfer to the Winner’s nominated bank account if requested, or by crossed cheque. 

Prize Restrictions

To calculate the prize amount, the Winner must supply documentation as outlined below:  

Option A:  Home loan repayments will be calculated as twelve (12) times the ongoing monthly repayment. The ongoing monthly repayment will be calculated using the Westpac mortgage repayment calculator (available at Westpac.com.au) based on the following:

  • Loan amount: current loan balance 
  • Loan period: 30 years
  • Loan type: Variable
  • Interest rate: current interest rate*
  • Repayment frequency: monthly
  • Repayment type: Principal & interest

The following documentation is required to claim prize Option A:

  • Previous month’s loan statement as evidence of the Winner’s loan amount and interest rate. * If evidence of the current interest rate is unable to be provided, we will use the default interest rate on the Westpac Mortgage Calculator, available at Westpac.com.au, as at the prize draw date.

 

Option B: The Winner must provide evidence of their rental payments including proof of address and a copy of their rental lease or a notice from real estate and/or landlord of current rent. We will calculate the yearly rental payments as follows:

  • For weekly rent payments:
    If the rent is $550 per week = ($550 / 7 days) x 365 days = $28,678.57 per year
  • For fortnightly rent payments:
    If the rent is $1,500 per fortnight = ($1,500 / 14 days) x 365 days = $39,107.14 per year
  • For monthly rent payments:
    If the rent is $3,500 per month = ($3,500 x 12 months) = $42,000 per year

The following documentation is required to claim prize Option B:

  • Evidence of the Winner’s rental payments including proof of address and a copy of their rental lease or a notice from real estate and/or landlord of current rent.

If the Promoter is unable to verify the authenticity of the information provided for Option A or Option B above, the Promoter will only supply the Prize as set out in Option C below.

Option C: Cash Prize of $25,000.

Prizes may be awarded by electronic funds transfer to the Winner’s nominated bank account if requested, or by crossed cheque.
