  • 7. What if I like a reward and do not have enough points?

    Many Cardmembers top up their balance to take advantage of our higher value rewards. You can purchase extra Points up to a maximum of 10,000 per year. You must purchase Points in increments of 1,000 Points with a minimum purchase of 1,000 Points. If you want to purchase Points, we will provide the purchase cost when you contact us. Please note that we may impose different maximum and minimum purchases from time to time.

  • 8. Can anyone else use my points to redeem for a reward?

    The primary Cardmember can redeem all Points earned on their account, whether spend was made on their Card or on any supplementary Cards linked to the primary account.

    Any person chosen by the primary Cardmember can become an authorised 3rd party on the account allowing them to redeem. In order to appoint an authorised 3rd party, the primary Cardmember must complete a 3rd party form. The designated person will then have full access to the primary Cardmember’s Membership Rewards account, and will be able to request a Points balance and make redemptions.

    Some of our travel partners may allow 3rd parties to travel using Points from the primary Cardmember's account, but this varies by partner. Please check with the partner before Points are redeemed.

    Please note that it is not possible to transfer Points to another Cardmember’s Membership Rewards account.
