Welcome to the APIWA My Reward Club is one of the oldest and most successful rewards and entertainment providers in WA.
Our history in a nutshell…
It all started in 1918 when the then Governor of NSW decided to create, what is believed to be Australia's first member/employee benefits club. Workers from the Post Masters service were funded in the states by the commonwealth originally to supply discounts and benefits and organise events for the Post Master Service employees, we were then known as the Australian Postal Institute.
WA was incorporated in 1925 and soon after, the federal government set up Telecom, and those employees joined as well, making us the Australian Post-Tel Institute (which we are still known as today, often abbreviated to API or APIWA). During the '80s the Post Master Service had changed to Australia Post and Telecom changed to Telstra and the government stopped sponsoring the institute annually. An annual membership fee was introduced and membership eligibility was opened to the public on the premise that the discounts would be real, not token attempts at a discount.
Our point of difference...
The real advantage of being an API WA member is that the discounts are real and proceeds from trading go straight back into the community. In some cases, you can save up to 80% off RRP and as an NFP we support Western Australians first! We provide discounts and benefits to a niche market of seniors and young Australian families that generally could not afford to holiday without our subsidised accommodation and shopping benefits. Some of our members save $500 to $1000’s on their shopping annually and guests save $100’s, sometimes $1000's on accommodation.
For example; In our apartments in Albany, opposite Middleton Beach, non-members can pay upwards of $240 per night per apartment, however, our APIWA members pay from $99 per night per apartment off-peak for the same apartment.
API WA has 8 apartments in Kalbarri, 5 houses in Busselton, 6 apartments in Albany, and 2 houses at Preston Beach, plus our sister API’s in other states have collectively a further 19 locations in Australia, including; Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Shoal Bay, Cairns, Caloundra, Fraser Coast, Gold Coast, Hobart City, Launceston, St Helens, Swansea, Echuca-Moama and more...
