Westpac Altitude Rewards


Redeem Westpac Altitude Points

Westpac, Australia's oldest bank, operates a sophisticated credit card loyalty scheme that provides a choice for cardholders to either directly convert their points earned to Qantas Frequent Flyer, or retain them within the Altitude program to redeem for household and personal products, gift cards, or other travel-related services.

Westpac Altitude offers three levels of card. For all cards, spend on the Amex card earns at least twice the points per dollar spent than the paired Visa or Mastercard.

  • Altitude credit card offers a Visa and Amex pairing with a capped monthly earn rate of 5,000 Altitude Points or 2,500 Qantas Points.
  • Altitude Platinum credit card offers a Visa and Amex pairing with a capped monthly earn rate of 7,500 Altitude Points or 3,750 Qantas Points.
  • Altitude Black credit card offers a Mastercard and Amex pairing with uncapped monthly points earning.
Across all Altitude cards, points can be automatically transferred to Qantas Frequent Flyer points. The earn rate varies between Visa/Mastercard and Amex cards. Westpac has also introduced a facility for Virgin Velocity members to setup Auto-Redemption of their Altitude points to the Velocity program.

Standard Altitude Points can be redeemed with these airline frequent flyer programs:

  • Virgin Australia Velocity
  • Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
  • Malaysia Airlines Enrich
  • Air New Zealand Airpoints
  • Cathay Pacific AsiaMiles.
The Altitude Black card is the most expensive in terms of the annual fee ($395) however it offers many real benefits to frequent travellers such Gold level status with Starwood's Preferred Guest hotel loyalty program after just a single night's stay at one of their Asia Pacific hotels.
