Pocket 50,000 Qantas frequent flyer points with Citibank

Pocket 50,000 Qantas frequent flyer points with Citibank

Citibank’s Citigold customers can earn 50,000 Qantas frequent flyer points by applying for the bank’s Qantas Signature Visa credit card.

With the annual fee waived (normally $395), you’ll pay just $49 each year for membership in the Citibank Qantas Rewards Program to earn Qantas Points on your everyday spend.

Also thrown into the mix is free Priority Pass Standard membership, which allows for two free visits each year to over 700 Priority Pass airport lounges – including the new Plaza Premium lounge at Macau Airport.

As you’d expect of a top-tier credit card, there’s also free interstate and international travel insurance cover.

To earn the sweet 50,000-point bonus, you’ll need to first be a member of Citigold – a wealth management service for clients with $100,000 or more invested through Citibank.

Then, simply apply for the Citibank Qantas Signature credit card by September 5 2014 and make a single purchase to qualify.

    You can get the points without being a Citigold member, however, the annual fee is not waived. They do have a promo going currently, get the card without annual fee for life, but you don't get the bonus points. Still great card though with good points earning potential. I'd transfer the points to Krisflyer though, not Qantas FF.

    Seriously, this is a rubbish article.  How many of your readers do you think have $100k invested in Citigold?  Is this the best you can do without lifting discussions from AFF or Flyertalk?

    Hi BradMel,

    I see that you only signed up this afternoon before posting your first comment (above), so welcome to AusBT!

    In terms of credit cards, Australian Business Traveller covers a wide range of sign-up deals that are relevant to readers of varying pay grades and levels of wealth.

    We also run weekly frequent flyer/travel credit card reviews, which we mix between high-end, everyday and premium.

    What may be of little use to yourself could be a great fit with another reader, and vice versa.

    This article is obviously more relevant to wealthy readers than those on a more typical household income, which is why we also included the details of four other credit card sign-up promotions – all of which have lower income or investment requirements than the Citigold.

    Therefore, those who meet the Citigold requirements still receive a handy 'heads-up' on the deal, and those who don't are reminded of other current offers that may be useful to them.

    Chris, I think you miss my points.  The percentage of your readers who have $100k invested in Citibank Gold is probably negligible yet you premise the article.on the fee being waived.  At best the article should have been about getting 50k points for $444 (much inferior to recent promos such as ANZ and Comm Bank with a line at the end basically say by the way they fee wuld be waved for certain customers.

    Chris, interesting article.  I invest with another banking group, maybe they will do this one day, but I digress.  I am looking at this article on a high res screen and it appears that the Qantas flight attendant in the picture at the top is not actually pouring the wine in the glass...PR shot gone wrong?!?
