    • 4. Can I buy more points?


      You can 'top up' points to fast-track a special reward. Membership Rewards points can be purchased in multiples of 1,000 ($20 = 1,000 points or $20 = 1,100 points for Platinum Cards), with a maximum of 15,000 points per reward. The cost of these points will be billed directly to your Card Account and will appear on the statement immediately following your purchase. Points purchased could not be transferred to an airline partner or a hotel frequent guest account. They can be used for all other rewards options.

      Subject to the Terms and Conditions of the Membership Rewards programme.


      Return to the top
    • 5. Why does the points balance in my account not reflect what I spent in that statement?


      This is because the Membership Rewards statement cuts off 4-6 days prior to your Card statement. So, if there are charges on the account after the statement cut off, they will be reflected in the next Membership Rewards statement or click here for an up to date balance.


      Return to the top
    • 6. I have two Cards that are eligible for Membership Rewards. Can I link them together and pool the points?


      Yes you can link your account when you have eligible accounts enrolled in the same Membership Rewards programme option. Please call us on 0800 656 660 to arrange this.
