    Hi There,

    Just wondering if anyone knows whether it is ok to do the Qantas bonus points offers across St George, Bank of Melbourne? I read the fine print and it’s not excluded specifically, but only now refers to “Amplify” program so not sure if this is across their entire group.

    Thanks!

      Hi CJ,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      The card will arrive in 5-10 working days. If it takes longer than expected, please call them up to find out what is causing the delay.

      Cheers,
      Joel

      Hi Sarah,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder.

      Since you are enquiring about earning Qantas bonus points if not an Amplify Signature Credit Card user, you can also refer to this link https://www.finder.com.au/credit-cards/bank-of-melbourne-credit-cards. As you can read from the said page, cards which are not Amplify are not earning Qantas bonus points. You can see them when you look at the table to compare the credit cards and check under Rewards Program tab.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi jeni,

      Thanks for your reply. My question was more linked to whether you can have both the st George amplify qantas card and also the bank of Melbourne amplify Qantas card and they be considered separate and therefore you could get both 90,000 sign up bonuses if you had both cards.

      Thanks

      Hi Sarah,

      Yes. You could get 90,000 points each on both new cards.
      Please see links for your reference BOM https://www.finder.com.au/bank-of-melbourne-amplify-signature-credit-card and St. George https://www.finder.com.au/st-george-amplify-signature-qantas

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
