Is Westpac Altitude Black still a good choice after the recent devaluation of Altitude points?

Hi there,

I am hoping that someone can help me with my confusion on which credit cards to use. I thought I had it all worked out, when I spent some time investigating the credit card table.

I selected two credit cards:
-St George Amplify (for most of my spending)
-Westpac Altitude black (for here and there spending)

I already have NAB Velocity cards that I had been using, which I was planning to cancel quite soon and get rid of them.
I am wondering if that is now the right decision with the changes to the points on Altitude black.

Could someone who understands this situation better please offer some guidance?



Hey Skafhold - unfortunately we can’t offer personal card recommendations here. However if you have any specific questions on particular cards we can try to help.

St. George Amplify Signature Visa has a new offer starting today for 30,000 Qantas Points and reduced first year annual fee, btw.

Hi Keith,

I guess I just wanted to know if the Westpac Altitude Black is still a good choice for an Amex/Mastercard credit card. Are my current points effected? Are there better choices to replace it?
