Points + Pay
If you don’t have enough hotpoints to reward yourself Points + Pay* makes it easier online to get the merchandise or gift card rewards you want sooner.
Points + Pay is really easy to use - if you’ve had your eye on a flash coffee maker for example but you haven’t got enough hotpoints to snap it up, you can top up using your Westpac hotpoints credit card. Alternatively, you can use your Westpac hotpoints credit card to pay for the reward in full, so you can save your hotpoints for another reward.
You’ll earn up to 10 bonus hotpoints for every dollar you spend with Points + Pay on selected merchandise rewards! That’s in addition to the hotpoints you already earn on your card. Make sure you look out for the bonus hotpoints offers - whether you’re paying for some or all of a reward with Points + Pay, you’ll be growing your hotpoints balance even faster!
* Points + Pay is only available for online redemptions at www.hotpoints.co.nz once you have logged in from Westpac Online Banking.
