Can I transfer money using the app?

We automatically categorise your transactions so you can get instant insights into your spending patterns and identify where to save.
If it’s not quite right, you can easily change the category – and what’s more, over time, the app will learn from this for future transactions.
What happens to my categories if I delete an account?
If you delete an account from the app and add it again later, you’ll lose any categories you’ve given your transactions - so why not use the account filter to hide the account instead?
Are my categories applied to past transactions?

Why am I receiving offers that don't seem well matched to me?
The offers you receive will be based on your spending history with your linked credit card/s. In some cases, this spend history might indicate that a card offer is well suited to you, when in fact it doesn't interest you. Please feel free to share your feedback through the website so we can continuously improve the service we offer.
How can I check if I have activated an offer?
Your list of offers will be grouped into ‘New’, ‘Active’ and ‘Earned’ tabs. New offers appear in the “New” list, and offers you have activated will appear under “Active”.

How can I check if I have successfully earned points on an offer?
Your list of My Card Offers will be grouped into “New”, “Active’ and “Earned” tabs.

Why does it take up to 30 days to receive my points?
The transaction may take a few days to go from pending to authorised within the relevant banking systems. We cannot award points for pending transactions as these may change or be cancelled. Please note transactions on public holidays and weekends are not processed by the banks until the following business day.
I activated an offer and believe I made a qualifying purchase, how do I follow up the missing points?
Once an offer has been activated and a qualifying purchase made using your Mastercard card that is linked to your Frequent Flyer account, it normally takes up to 30 days for the points to be credited. If you do not receive your points within this timeframe you can lodge a missing points claim by submitting a Contact Us form.
Can I still earn bonus points if I activate the offer after I make the qualifying transaction?
No, you must activate an offer first in order for our system to match your transaction to an offer and earn points.
What if I forget to use my registered Mastercard card, can I still earn the points?
No, you must use the Mastercard cards that you have linked to your Frequent Flyer account in order for our system to match your transaction to an offer and earn points.
