Other factors to consider before choosing a Bankwest More Rewards credit card

If you are thinking of getting a Bankwest More credit card to become a member of this program, make sure you consider these features before you apply.

  • Interest rates. The Bankwest More MasterCards all have a standard variable purchase rate of 19.99% p.a. which will be applied to any purchases you make when you carry a balance. These cards also have a cash advance interest rate of 21.99% p.a. for ATM withdrawals and .
  • Annual fees. The annual fees for these Bankwest cards range from $70 to $130. You should weigh this cost up against your potential rewards to make sure you will get value out of the card that you choose.
  • Other fees. Other costs you may have to deal with when you get a Bankwest More credit card include cash advance fees, a late payment charge of $25, a dishonour fee of $10 and a foreign currency fee worth 2.95% of the total transaction (waived for Bankwest More Platinum cardholders). Check out the Bankwest Current Interest Rates and Fees page for full details of potential charges for these credit cards.
  • Complimentary extras. The Bankwest More Gold and Platinum cards come with complimentary benefits including international travel insurance, purchase security cover, extended warranties and purchase price guarantees. The Platinum card also offers a personal concierge service to help you book holidays, make restaurant reservations and deal with overseas arrangements.
  • Bonus points. If your Bankwest More credit card application is approved and you meet the eligibility criteria, you can get a bonus 8,000 points, 15,000 points or 28,000 points with the Bankwest More, More Gold or More Platinum cards respectively.
  • Points cap. These credit cards limit the amount of points you can earn each year, so it’s important to check your average credit card spending to find out if these caps will affect you. For example, the More MasterCard offers 1.5 points per $1 and has an annual cap of 150,000 points. You would have to spend more than $100,000 per year to reach that limit.
  • Points expiry. Bankwest More Rewards points expire after 36 months, so you will not get any value out of them if you don’t use them within that timeframe.

The More Rewards program gives you a chance to get added value out of using a Bankwest credit card, offering points for every $1 spent and bonuses for new customers. But all three Bankwest More credit cards also come with other fees and conditions, so it’s important to weigh these features up against the potential benefits to make sure you choose a card that really suits your spending habits and needs.
