Paying with your Meal Entertainment Card makes it easy

The easiest way to salary package your Meal Entertainment expenses is to use your Maxxia Meal Entertainment Payment Card.

It works the same way as a credit card - except the funds are drawn from your salary packaging account.

Powered by Visa (through ANZ), your card is widely accepted across Australia and overseas.

With a Meal Entertainment Payment Card you can:

  • choose how much you wish to spend on your card (up to the yearly cap limit)
  • put an end to paper receipts and filling out claim forms
  • access the ANZ Customer Care Centre 24/7
  • request additional cards for your family members
  • use where Visa is accepted in Australia and overseas
  • avoid paying bank fees.

If your employer doesn't offer a payment card, you can still package the Meal Entertainment benefit by submitting a claim with your proof of payment.
