I would like to pay my house deposit with my bankwest credit card (shall be in the green by quite a bit when doing this)
Will I be able to pay this deposit and earn FF points?

Thanks for your question @aussiebok, this would depend on whether the company you're paying the deposit to accept credit card payments, and how they would process the payment. If they request you to transfer the funds, this would be classed as a cash advance which incurs a cash advance fee of $4 or 2% of the transaction amount (whichever is greater). If the card is in surplus of the amount you're transferring and you do not withdraw anything from the credit limit, then the fee would be capped at $4.
Some companies also have a surcharge for accepting credit card payments, so it would be best to check this before making the payment.
