NAB Rewards terms and conditions

1. WHEN DO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY?

When you or an additional cardholder first uses your new rewards card account in accordance with your rewards card account terms and conditions, you’re treated as having agreed to these terms and conditions.

These terms and conditions explain how you can earn points using your rewards card account and how you can claim rewards.

Please make sure you and any additional cardholder read these terms and conditions before the rewards card account is used. If you have any questions just Call Us.

Some words described in 21 have a particular meaning in those terms and conditions.

2. WHAT ARE POINTS AND HOW YOU CAN EARN THEM?

2.1 You are able to earn points once these terms and conditions apply in accordance with 1.

2.2 Points are awarded for each eligible transaction debited to your rewards card account (5 describes transactions that don’t earn points). You may also be awarded bonus points in accordance with applicable promotional material. Bonus points are described in 3.

2.3 Points are allocated according to each whole $1.00 of the value of the eligible transaction (including GST), rounded to the nearest dollar, shown on your monthly card statement. The number of points allocated per $1.00 depends on the type of card you have. When you open your rewards card account, we will provide you this information in writing. This includes the FAQs available on the NAB Rewards Store. You can check the FAQs for current information at any time. See 20 for how we will let you know about any changes to the number of points allocated.

2.4 You can only earn points when your rewards card account is open and active.

2.5 Additional cardholders do not earn points in their own right but may accumulate points to your points balance.

2.6 Points and bonus points aren’t property and don’t have any monetary value except to the extent specifically provided for by a reward. They can’t be redeemed for cash. They can only be redeemed for rewards in accordance with these terms and conditions. See 9 and 10.

2.7 Points may not be sold or transferred except if the transfer is in accordance with 12.

3. HOW DO YOU EARN BONUS POINTS?

You may be awarded bonus points in connection with special promotions offered from time to time. The conditions applying to these bonus points will be provided at the time of the promotion. These special promotions may be offered by either

  • a bonus points provider; or
  • NAB.

4. WHAT POINTS ARE INCLUDED IN YOUR POINTS BALANCE?

The points balance includes:

  • (i) points awarded for eligible transactions debited to your rewards card account; and
  • (ii) bonus points awarded in accordance with applicable promotional material.

5. WHAT TRANSACTIONS DON’T EARN POINTS?

There are some goods and services which you can purchase using your card which won’t earn points because they aren’t eligible for the purposes of NAB Rewards. They are:

  • (i) cash advances (which include bills paid over the counter at a bank, financial institution or post office, and the purchase of travellers cheques);
  • (ii) interest charges and other bank fees and charges (including any GST payable on any of these) applicable to your rewards card account or use of the card or to NAB Rewards;
  • (iii) transactions where the card is used to make payments to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) (including related fees and charges);
  • (iv) balance transfers;
  • (v) transactions where a card is used to access linked transaction accounts;
  • (vi) purchase of foreign exchange or travellers cheques and money orders;
  • (vii) for a personal rewards card account, transactions we decide are wholly or partly for business purposes; and
  • (viii) transactions for gambling and gaming purposes (examples include purchase of lottery tickets purchases of gaming chips or tokens and online gambling).

6. WHAT WILL REDUCE YOUR POINTS BALANCE?

Things you do

You will reduce your points balance when:

  • (i) you (or someone authorised by you in accordance with 9.1) use your points to claim a reward; or
  • (ii) you don’t use your points before they expire. See 11. The oldest points in your points balance will be deducted first when a reward is claimed. See 10 for Rewards.

Things we will do

We will reduce your points balance where:

  • (i) there is a refund or reimbursement for a transaction previously charged to your rewards card account and a credit is processed to the same rewards card account. This may happen for a number of reasons but usually for returned goods or services;
  • (ii) there is a charge back to your rewards card account under your reward card account terms and conditions;
  • (iii) there have been unauthorised transactions on your rewards card account for which you are not liable;
  • (iv) points were incorrectly allocated to your points balance; or
  • (v) we reasonably suspect you or an additional cardholder have behaved fraudulently in connection with NAB Rewards and you are not entitled to points earned.

When this happens the points balance will be reduced by the points value of the credit amount or adjustment. The points value will be calculated using the rate at which points are allocated for transactions to your rewards card account at the time the credit amount or adjustment was processed by us.

Things we may do

We may reduce your points balance when the transaction eligible to earn points:

  • (i) results in the credit limit on the rewards card account being exceeded; or
  • (ii) is debited against credit funds in the rewards card account.

7. HOW TO KEEP TRACK OF YOUR POINTS

You can track your points through a range of options by:

  • (i) accessing the NAB Rewards Store to see your points balance and any points which are due to expire in the next 3 months. Points awarded for eligible transactions processed to your rewards card account are added to the points balance you’ll see on the NAB Rewards Store. Your points balance will reflect the points earned on a transaction within 3 business days of the transaction being processed to your rewards card account (bonus points appear in accordance with applicable promotional material); or
  • (ii) looking at your quarterly Rewards statement. This shows any activity on your points balance in the period covered by the statement and if you have any points due to expire in the next 6 months. This statement will be sent quarterly to your email address which you have provided to us.

Loyalty program rewards

You may redeem your points and transfer them for points with other loyalty programs. To be able to redeem your points for this category of rewards you must:

For information about the loyalty programs, minimum points requirements and current redemption rates, visit the NAB Rewards Store.

When you ask to redeem points for points with another loyalty program, the reward will normally be available to you in your loyalty program account within 14 business days of your request. However, NAB is not responsible if there is any delay.

Once points have been redeemed for points with the other loyalty program they:

11.1 Points in your points balance must be used to claim a reward within 36 months from the date the transaction which earned those points was processed to your rewards card account. Points that remain unused in your points balance after that period will be forfeited.

11.2 If you ask NAB to cancel or close your rewards card account, you have up to 60 days from the date you make the request to use any points in your points balance. To redeem these points you need to Call Us. Points that remain unused in your points balance after that period will be forfeited.

12. WHO CAN YOU TRANSFER YOUR POINTS TO?

12.1 This describes the circumstances in which you can transfer points from the points balance applicable to your business rewards card account.

If you earn points using a business rewards card account, you may Call Us to transfer points from your points balance to either:

  • (i) the points balance of another related body corporate; or
  • (ii) the points balance of another person who holds a personal rewards card account.

12.2 At the time you make the request you will be required to provide the full name and address details of the recipient of the points.

When we process the transfer:

  • (i) both you and the recipient of the points must have an open and active rewards card account when the transfer is made. The transfer cannot be reversed or cancelled by either you or the recipient of the points;
  • (ii) points which have been transferred to the recipient’s points balance retain their expiry period. This recipient of the points will be advised on their monthly card statement when the transferred points will expire; and
  • (iii) you must not require or receive any consideration (in the form of a payment or otherwise) for any transfer of points to anyone else.

The transfer of points may have tax implications. NAB recommends you and the recipient of the points check with an accountant or tax adviser for further information.

13. WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REWARD?

We give no warranty (whether express or implied) with respect to rewards provided under NAB Rewards. In particular, we don’t represent that any particular reward is suitable for a particular purpose for which you intend to use it. A reward will normally come with a warranty from the supplier or manufacturer of the reward and any claim in respect of that reward should be made directly to the supplier or manufacturer.

This doesn’t prevent you from claiming against us where we supply services in connection with NAB Rewards. If you are a consumer, consumer protection laws include non-excludable warranties which may entitle you to compensation.

Otherwise, if we are liable for the breach of any term implied by law, our liability for loss or damage from the breach is limited to:

  • (i) supplying the service again or paying the costs of having the service resupplied; or
  • (ii) replacement or repair of the reward or payment of the cost of replacing or repairing the reward. If you are a consumer, under consumer protection laws, we can only limit our liability in this way to the extent it’s permitted by those laws.

Except to the extent provided by law we do not accept any liability for:

  • (i) the loss, theft or destruction of a reward;
  • (ii) loss arising from the death, injury or consequential loss arising from the supply of a reward; or
  • (iii) any disruption to NAB Rewards, delay or inability to provide a reward caused by circumstances beyond our control like industrial disputes or acts of God.

NAB makes every reasonable effort to ensure the description of offers in connection with bonus points, rewards and rewards provider terms are correct. However, NAB is necessarily reliant on the information provided by bonus points providers and rewards providers being accurate and for this reason we are not responsible for any inaccuracy in the description of a bonus point promotion or of a reward or any terms applicable to the reward.

14. DISPUTES AND HOW WE RESOLVE THEM

If you have a complaint in relation to NAB Rewards, your allocation of points or your points balance, please Call Us. We’ll aim to resolve any problem on the spot. Sometimes we may require you to confirm details of your complaint in writing and to provide supporting details.

If we can’t resolve the complaint promptly we will let you know how long we expect it to take. We’ll also let you when we have completed our investigations and the reasons for our decision.

If you are not satisfied with the way your complaint has been resolved or the steps we have taken, you may wish to contact our external dispute resolution scheme, the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
