Expert review

The BankSA Amplify Platinum boasts a relatively competitive bonus points offer, especially when you compare the spend requirement to other frequent flyer cards with bonus point offers. To give you an idea of your points potential, you could book a family getaway to Byron Bay with three return economy flights between Sydney and Ballina (48,000 points in total) or fly solo with a return business class booking between Brisbane and Adelaide (55,200 points).

    Hi,
    I currently have a St George Amplify Platinum, can I still qualify for the Bonus Points on signing up for this card? I know BoM Amplify Platinum had a ‘no ‘ clause if you had closed a BoM/St Geo/ BSa/Amplify rewards cards in the past 12 months?

      Hi Justin,

      Thank you for leaving a question. Yes, when you apply and are approved for the BankSA Amplify Platinum Qantas card by 22 May 2019, you can score 50,000 bonus Qantas Points when you spend $2,000 within 90 days of approval.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Val
