How can I convert points into cash?

To convert points into cash, all you need is a PayPal account or a valid bank account. It’s super easy. As we support innovation and are inspired by PayPal ­ which has solved many problems for people around the world in terms of security and money transfer ­we encourage you to use PayPal.

You simply select the number of points which you want to ‘cash out’ and the system will convert them immediately into an Australian dollar amount. Next, just select where you would like the money sent ­ either to your PayPal or nominated bank account. Once you have provided your details and confirmed the transfer, we will deposit the funds; this may take up to 3 working days for PayPal and up to 18 hours for bank accounts.

What is the conversion rate for points into Australian dollars?

This is a stable conversion where 100 points equals $1 AUD. When cashing out your points, we will round up or down to the nearest whole dollar amount, depending on the exact number of points in your account.  So for example, if you have 0.49 or 0.96 we round the number up, or if you have 0.44 or 0.94 we round the number down to the nearest dollar.
