The BankSA Amplify Platinum Credit Card offers uncapped reward points on your everyday, eligible spending and has a competitive bonus points offer. If you're more focused on paying off credit card debt, it currently offers 0% p.a. interest on balance transfers for the first 24 months, with a one-time 1% balance transfer fee. Just keep in mind that you'll typically get more value from the balance transfer offer if you focus on paying it off before making purchases with the card.
