Expert review

The Bank of Melbourne Amplify Platinum boasts up to 100,000 bonus points over two years and a short-term balance transfer offer. While this is relatively competitive, you don’t get all the bonus points at once and you'll need to spend $6,000 each year.

This card earns 1 Amplify Point per $1 spent and the Amplify Rewards program gives you plenty of ways to redeem your points. For example, you could exchange 100,000 Amplify Points for 50,000 Velocity Points, Malaysia Enrich points or Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles. It’s also almost enough points to redeem a $500 David Jones eGift Card (110,000 points).
