  • 0% p.a balance transfer rate for 6 months (1% BT fee applies)
  • Double 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award winner

Mozo snapshot

2019 Travel Credit Card Provider of the Year Bankwest's More Platinum Mastercard offers a luxury rewards program without the hefty price-tag. The relatively competitive $160 annual fee puts this card well within the realm of the affordable. Yet there is no compromise on rewards quality as new customers can earn 75,000 bonus points every year (min spend applies). You’ll also be happy to hear it took out two awards in the 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Travel Money Awards.

Key features

The Bankwest More Platinum Mastercard makes luxury affordable. Customers can gain access to a stellar rewards program without being weighed down by hefty annual fees and purchase rates. New customers earn 75,000 bonus points every year if they manage a $48,000 annual spend on eligible purchases.

Every dollar spent is worth 2 rewards points, which can be redeemed for over 3,000 different products. Smart watches and new phones, cashback, flights and hot air balloon rides are all up for grabs - this rewards program truly does offer "more". But be sure to keep an eye on your points balance and your calendar, as points are capped at 400,000 points p.a. and expire after 36 months.

The More Platinum also comes with complimentary overseas travel insurance to cover the basics, interstate flight inconvenience insurance and purchase protection - what a package!

For those customers with existing credit card balances, the More Platinum Mastercard offers a 0% balance transfer rate for 6 months (+1% BT fee). After the 6 months is up, any remaining balance will roll over to the purchase rate, not the cash advance rate, which is great news for any wallet.

Who is it good for

How do we calculate the rewards?

To work out the "Rewards value minus fees" in our Rewards Revealer we:

  • calculate how many points you'd get each year,

  • figure out how many flights or gift cards or cashback credits you could get for those points,

  • work out what that's actually worth to you,

  • take off the annual fee you'd pay.

More details:

  • Our calculations are designed to help you compare the value of different rewards schemes. To do this, we've looked at earning a one-way Sydney-Melbourne flight excluding taxes and charges, a return Sydney-London flight excluding taxes and charges, a $100 shopping Gift Card and $100 cashback. Most cards will also offer other rewards, which may be worth more or less than the ones we've shown.

  • We have made no allowance for bonus points for using your card at specific merchants, introductory offers or special offers. We have not assigned any value to instant discounts, insurances, ticketing and concierge services or other such benefits.

  • Rewards value calculations do not take credit card interest into account. If you do not pay off your card each month you may be better off looking for a card based on interest rates than on the value of rewards.

  • In products that have more than one card, a different mix of spend between American Express / Visa / Mastercard will give different results. Mozo's Rewards Revealer lets you choose the mix based on the way you would use such a product, and gives you tailored results.

  • We assume flights purchased with airline points are 'classic' or 'reward' economy seats with restricted seat availability. 'Any seat' rewards will probably cost more.

  • To compare the value of flight rewards, we sample online retail flight prices once a quarter based on the average price on a Wednesday 3 months in advance but outside NSW school holidays. For domestic flights we take the lowest available fare from each flight on that day from Qantas Red e-deal, Virgin Australia Saver including baggage and Jetstar Starter including baggage. We calculate the average price excluding taxes and surcharges for each airline, and also the average across all airlines (which we use when rewards are travel agent vouchers). For international flights, we take the lowest available fares on that same Wednesday from each of Qantas, Emirates, Malaysian, Etihad, Singapore, Cathay Pacific and Thai, assuming a return flight 2 weeks later, calculate the average price before taxes and surcharges and use this as our assumed cost of a flight on any airline.

  • Shopping rewards are based on $100 gift cards from a major national department store.

  • We make every effort to ensure our calculations are correct and up to date but make no guarantees.

    Great rewards program!

    The ‘more rewards’ program is great. The bank will send a prompt to trade the points for cash back. The credit card provides free travel insurance too which is handy.

    Generally not a bad product however we have been annoyingly charged interest on several occasions when the payment date has been changed without notice.
