About Westpac

Westpac credit cards offer you the convenience of buying something now and only paying for it later just like a short term loan. Put it on your credit card if you don’t have the cash to pay for it now and space out the payments.  

The Westpac Lite Credit Card has fewer fees and the lowest purchase rates with a variable interest rate of 9.90% pa on all purchases.

You won’t be charged any fees on foreign transactions and there are no annual membership fees, only a small $9 monthly card fee that unlocks a host of rewards. To help you manage your credit card use SmartPlan to set up an easy to follow repayment plan.

Lock your card

Are you quite forgetful and often lose your credit only to find it again? With card lock, you can easily put your card on hold and lock it until you locate it.  Once you find it, simply unlock your card again with no hassle.

Take the stress out of repaying your debt

Never miss a payment by setting up a direct debit to deduct the monthly fee directly from your account. We offer an SMS service that sends you a reminder to pay your credit card bill and let you stay on top of your payments.

Mobile wallet

I have been a client of Westpac for years so it only made sense that when I wanted a credit card I would turn to them. I have had no problems at all so far and could not be happier.
