Amex releases new Qantas Business Rewards card
Turn your business spending into 100,000 Qantas Points and take advantage of Qantas Lounge invitations and complimentary insurance.
American Express has introduced a new business rewards card to the market today. The Amex Qantas Business Rewards card will replace the Qantas American Express Business card that was previously on the market. The new card is available to eligible business cardholders from today.
Designed to suit businesses that want to earn points on corporate costs, you can earn 1.25 points per $1 spent on everyday purchases. Plus, you’ll earn triple Qantas Points on eligible flights, which will come in handy if you and your employees fly frequently for work. You can also earn 0.5 Qantas Points when you spend on utilities, insurance and government transactions such as that annual ATO bill.
You’ll also receive automatic and complimentary enrolment to the Qantas Business Rewards program, the corporate loyalty scheme that allows individual flyers and their organisations to earn points on business flights. So you’ll save the $89.50 membership fee and enjoy Qantas Business Rewards perks such as discounts on eligible Qantas flights, 10% off Qantas Club membership and more.
To celebrate the launch of the card, you’ll also receive 100,000 bonus Qantas Points if you’re approved for the card by 31 December 2017 and you spend $3,000 in the first two months. That’s enough points to fly economy return from Sydney to Dubai or one way in first class to Hong Kong (both 90,000 points). Of course, whether you decide to use the points to treat yourself or your employees is up to you!
You can also travel in style on your next business trip with two complimentary domestic Qantas Club lounge passes each year. This means you could relax before your next flight in the comfort of the lounge while enjoying dedicated check-in, priority baggage handling, complimentary food and beverages and free Wi-Fi. Cardholders can also save on travel costs with complimentary international travel insurance.
As well as the points and perks, the business card is a useful tool for managing corporate costs under one account. You can request up to 99 additional cardholders for no extra fee and can track your expenditure with MYOB account software, QuickenTM and Microsoft Excel.
As a charge card, there’s no predetermined spending limit and you won’t collect interest on your purchases. Instead, you have 51 days to pay your balance in full each statement due date.
The card has an annual fee of $450, so you should make sure that the rewards you redeem for the bonus points and other Qantas Points you earn on the card outweigh this cost.
Although the American Express Qantas Business Rewards card offers plenty of benefits to business cardholders, it isn’t the only rewards business card on the market. Before applying, make sure to compare this offer with other business cards on the market to determine which card is best suited to your organisation.
