Get started by making sure you meet the following eligibility requirements and have all the documents and details you'll need to complete the application.

Eligibility criteria

  • New cardholder. To take advantage of the bonus point offer on this card, you must not currently hold an Amplify Platinum or Amplify Signature credit card from Bank of Melbourne, St.George or BankSA. You also must not have held any of these accounts within the past 12 months.

Card benefits

Apply by 30 November 2021 to collect 100,000 bonus Amplify points in the first year plus another 100,000 bonus points in the second year (total of 200,000 points) when you spend at least $12,000 on eligible purchases each year. To give you an idea, 200,000 Amplify Points can be converted to 100,000 Velocity Points or redeemed for $400 worth of Woolworths WISH digital gift cards (91,200 points for four $100 eGift cards). Points will be credited to the account within 12 weeks of the spend being met and earning bonus points in the second year is independent of earning the first year bonus points.

Expert review

The Bank of Melbourne Amplify Signature is a premium rewards credit card that offers both a competitive introductory offer and ongoing features. The major drawcard here is 200,000 bonus points, which you can only collect in full if you keep the card for 2 years and spend at least $12,000 in each of those years. This works out to about $1,000 per month for 24 months, so have a think about if that’s achievable based on your spending patterns.

    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 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

      Yes. You could get 90,000 points each on both new cards.
