Expert review

The Auswide Bank Platinum Rewards Mastercard has a mix of platinum features and rewards. To give you an idea of the value of the 20,000 bonus points, that is the minimum amount for many of the $100 digital gift cards listed on the Card Services Rewards website. Actual point requirements do vary though, so you’d need to log into your account to get full details.
