What’s changed with the Bankwest Qantas Mastercard®?

On 22 May 2019 the Bankwest Qantas Mastercard Terms and Conditions and the Qantas Points you can earn changed.

What are the changes?

Earning Qantas Points

This will vary depending on the type of card you have.

Bankwest Qantas Classic Mastercard
The earn rate has changed from 0.5 to 0.3 Qantas Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases. The annual Qantas Points Cap of 50,000 is gone, so there’s now no limit to the amount of points you can earn each year. This applies to existing cardholders only. The Bankwest Qantas Classic is only available to new customers who apply by 24 May 2019 and are approved.

Bankwest Qantas Platinum Mastercard
The earn rate has changed from 0.5 to 0.75 Qantas Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases per month for the first 1,875 points, and 0.3 thereafter. The annual Qantas Points Cap of 200,000 is gone, so there’s now no limit to the amount of points you can earn each year.

Bankwest Qantas World Mastercard
The earn rate has changed from 0.66 Qantas Points to 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on eligible purchases per month for the first 5,000 points, and 0.5 thereafter. The annual unlimited Qantas Points Cap hasn’t changed.

Refunds and reimbursements

If you’re refunded or reimbursed for previous charges on your card, we’ll recalculate your Qantas Points on the refund amount at the lower rate that applies to your card. This might be different from the Qantas Points earned on the transaction initially.

What’s an eligible purchase?

The purchases that are eligible to earn Qantas Points haven't changed. Qantas Points are earned on all purchases made using your account, except:

  • cash advances
  • balance transfers
  • interest charges
  • credit fees and charges
  • bank fees and charges
  • disputed transactions (due to fraud or abuse of your account)
  • foreign exchange purchases
  • travellers cheques
  • all purchases for gaming or gambling transactions including lottery tickets, gambling chip purchases and online gambling purchases
  • BPAY payments
  • government charges (other than GST payable in connection with the purchase of goods and services on which you earn Qantas Points) like ATO payments, council fees and fines
  • credit card protection insurance
  • business related expenses
  • any other transactions which from time to time may be excluded by us.
