Expert review

The BankSA Amplify Signature offers a lot of value in the first year, with the 150,000 bonus Amplify Points worth $675 in eGift card rewards. You can also transfer your points to Velocity Frequent Flyer or Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, get other travel rewards or shop the Amplify Rewards store for coffee machines and other retail items. As the spend requirement of $12,000 applies for the first 12 months, you could meet it by spending an average of $1,000 per month on the card.

    Do you get Qantas points when paying ATO with BankSA Amplify Signature Card ?

      Hi Asha,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      Since ATO is a government transaction, you will not get points when make transactions there. While Amplify Points are earned when you purchase goods and services, please note that Amplify Points are not earned in respect of the following amounts that may be charged to your Card Account:

      • government charges (other than GST payable in connection with the purchase of goods or services on which you earn Amplify Points)
      • interest and other bank fees and charges (including any GST payable on any of these)
      • cash advances
      • balance transfers
      • BPAY payments, i.e. bill payments and other payments made through the BPAY Electronic Payments Scheme.

      Also, if you (or an Additional Cardholder) return any goods or services purchased with the Card or Card Account, or your Card Account is credited in connection with a disputed transaction, St.George will adjust the Amplify Points total earned by deducting any Amplify Points, which were earned in connection with the original or disputed transaction.

      Cheers,
      Joel

    Hello,
    This add says a new cardholder receives 90,000 bonus Amplify or Qantas points if they apply by 18 April 2018 and meet the spend requirements. Can you please confirm the QANTAS points transferred are 90,000?
    Thank you.
    Kind regards,

      Yes, that is correct. The new card holder receives 90,0000 Amplify or Qantas points if you meet the requirements.

    Hi! With regards to Qantas FF points, your site mentions we can redeem over 3,000 products, vouchers and experiences on offer under the program but you haven’t actually specified flights. Just to get clarification, are points earned able to be used for flights too?

      Hello Cal,

      Thank you for your inquiry today. :-)

      Yes, you can redeem Qantas points on flights such as:
      – Classic Award flights on Qantas and 35 partner airlines
      – Qantas and Jetstar Any Seat Award flights
      – Flight Upgrade Awards on eligible Qantas flights when available

      Hope this clarifies.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan
