So as it has already been mentioned previously that the current format of the Westpac Attitude AMEX cards are closing up shop and transitioning to the AMEX issued Westpac credit cards.

After speaking with AMEX, my understanding is that yes, as you'd hold a card product issued directly by AMEX AU (even Westpac-branded), you may not qualify for sign-up bonuses on other cards like Qantas Ultimate, for example.

I currently have Westpac Earth Black cards with an annual spent of circa $120k per year - mostly Amex.

Has anyone received invitation from Amex, like David I have another Amex and never received an invitation nor being contacted.

Doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason – I have an old
Westpac Krisflyer Amex and my son an Altitude Black Amex. We both have similar
income and both pay off cards each month. He got an invite for an Amex card, I
didn’t. Neither of us have cards with Amex directly.

Chris, I contacted Amex and they gave clear advice that taking up the new Amex Westpac offer would NOT count as an Amex card and thus would not preclude one from applying for an Amex card in the future that had a big sign- up bonus. This appears to directly contradict earlier advice given to you. Are you able
The information I've been given by American Express is as already posted above. The T&Cs usually preclude bonus points when a cardholder already has (or has held in the past 18 months) any card issued by American Express Australia. The new Westpac-branded cards are issued by American Express Australia.If AMEX is telling you otherwise, I'd suggest you get them to put this in writing, so that if any future bonus points don't turn up, you can prove you were told they'd be available.Also just to clarify - we don't provide "financial advice" on this site. As journalists, we can share factual information about any topic with an audience (that's our job, after all), but the information we present and share shouldn't be taken as "financial advice". :)
