In the market for a new Qantas Frequent Flyer credit card? Then take a look at these top deals from American Express, ANZ, Citibank and Westpac which place a staggering 400,000 Qantas Points on the table.
You can even pocket 100,000 Qantas Points from a single card application – so if your current 'rewards' credit card isn't so rewarding, discover a better option below.
1. American Express Platinum Charge Card
At the top of the pile, the American Express Platinum Charge Card delivers 100,000 Membership Rewards Ascent Premium points, on-par with 100,000 Qantas Points when converted across at a 1:1 rate.
Simply apply by May 1 2017 and spend at least $1,500 on purchases within the first three months and those points are yours, provided you also pay the card's $1,200 annual fee. In helping to offset that charge, AMEX provides a $300 Platinum Travel Credit every year which you can spend on flights, hotels and more, lowering the actual 'cost' of the card to $900.
For every dollar spent, you'll also fetch three Qantas Points at most Australian restaurants, two Qantas Points on travel and all overseas spend, 0.5 Qantas Points with utilities, insurers and government departments, and one Qantas Point everywhere else.
(As of May 2 2017, this card now offers 80,000 Memberhip Rewards Ascent Premium bonus points, equal to 80,000 Qantas Points.)
2. Westpac BusinessChoice Rewards Visa credit card
In the market for a business credit card instead? Take a peek at Westpac's BusinessChoice Rewards Visa, promising an easy 80,000 Qantas Points.
Just apply by May 31 2017 and make one eligible purchase of any amount and those points will be credited to your Qantas Business Rewards account, where they can be shifted onwards to any personal Qantas Frequent Flyer account at a 1:1 rate.
This card comes with an annual fee of $150 and churns out one Qantas Point per $1.50 spent on most purchases (0.67 points per dollar) – except on government transactions from May 2 2017 where 0.33 Qantas Points are earned per dollar spent – and is available to businesses large and small.
3. ANZ Qantas Frequent Flyer Black Visa credit card
The ANZ Qantas Frequent Flyer Black Visa brings 75,000 Qantas Points to the table after spending just $2,500 on eligible purchases within the first three months and with no annual fee to pay in the first year, either: a saving of $425!
Most points-earning transactions are covered by ANZ's definition of 'eligible purchases' including retail spend and travel bookings, but excludes account charges like cash advances which don't ordinarily attract frequent flyer points.
Speaking of points, your ANZ Qantas Frequent Flyer Black Visa will net you an easy 1 Qantas Points per dollar on spends up to and including $7,500 per month, and 0.5 Qantas Points per dollar spent thereafter without limit: except for payments to the Tax Office which don't accrue points.
As icing on the frequent flyer cake, you can also pick up 75 bonus Qantas status credits by booking and taking a new return Qantas flight by September 30 2017!
4. Qantas American Express Ultimate Card
American Express takes out another spot on the podium in this month's rankings with its own bonus of 75,000 Qantas Points alongside a new Qantas American Express Ultimate Card plus 75 bonus Qantas status credits when you book a return flight with Qantas by September 30 2017.
Your bounty of bonus points are also unlocked when you apply for the card by May 1 2017, pay an annual fee of $450 and spend at least $1,500 on everyday purchases within the first three months.
On the table as well are 2.5 Qantas Points per dollar spent booking Qantas flights and 1.5 Qantas Points per dollar spent everywhere else (including with utilities and insurers), except at government bodies where 0.5 Qantas Points are earned per dollar spent.
(As of May 2 2017, this card now offers 55,000 bonus Qantas Points for new applicants, but no status credits.)
5. Citi Prestige Visa Infinite credit card
Get your hands on Citibank's top-of-the-line Citi Prestige Visa Infinite credit card and 70,000 Qantas Points can be yours when you apply by April 30 2017 and use your card to make at least one purchase of any amount within the first 90 days.
You'll need to opt for the 'Citi Qantas Rewards Program' during your application and there's a total annual fee of $749 to pay, but in return, you can currently earn one Qantas Point per dollar spent, uncapped, both in Australia and overseas.
From June 15 2017, you'll earn 50% more points on foreign spend which increases to 1.5 Qantas Points per Aussie dollar, while charges at major retailers, supermarkets and petrol stations continue earning one Qantas Point per dollar, and spend everywhere else moves to 0.5 Qantas Points per dollar.
