    I was wondering which is the better value. Amplify rewards or Qantas rewards. Although amplify rewards gives me 1.5 points for every $ spent and Qantas gives only .75 points. I get the impression that when I compare the same product on both, although qantas gives lower points for $ spent the redemption of points is better value than Amplify rewards. e.g if an item on Amplify Rewards is say 50000 points in value, the qantas rewards for the same product may only be 30000 points. Does this make sense to any one or am I wrong?

      Hi Lui,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Determining whether who gives a better value between the Amplify and Qantas program actually depends on your preferences and needs and what you think how you could use the rewards they offer. You are actually correct, that in terms of earning points, the Amplify Rewards will allow you get a higher ratio. You can earn 1.5 Amplify Points for each eligible dollar spent at an Australian retailer and 3 Amplify points if you make purchases at an overseas merchant. Whilst the Amplify Qantas have lower earning ratio. You can earn 0.75 Qantas Points for every dollar spent ith purchases made at Australian merchants and 1.5 Qantas Points with transactions made with overseas merchants.

      Please note that these points you get do not have a monetary value. So if you want to redeem your points for gift cards, retail vouchers, home wares, etc., you can go for Amplify but if you want to have access to more than 3,000 products, vouchers and experiences offered by the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, you may opt for the Amplify Qantas.

      Cheers,
      May

    Hi,

    Will the 20 months zero 0% balance transfer for a Bank of SA amplify signature card have to be applied at the time when I apply for the card( ie at the point of card application) ? Or can I do and still enjoy 0% the balance transfer later after card approval?

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      With BankSA, you can request a balance transfer when you apply for your credit card and they will arrange to transfer the balance for you. Once your card application is approved, you have to activate your BankSA card for the balance transfer to take place. If you take advantage of a promotional balance transfer rate offer, the period starts when the balance is transferred.

      Hope this has answered your question.

      Cheers,
      May

    Is the information about the qantas reward points correct for the BankSA Amplify Signature Card. It states 1.50 qantas points for every $ spent. Should this be 0.75 points?
