Expert review

The BOQ Specialist Platinum card with Qantas Points is designed especially for people working in medical, dental and veterinary professions. With this card, you'll earn 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 on eligible spending in Australia and 1 point per $1 spent overseas. You can also collect 1 additional point per $1 spent on selected Qantas products and services in Australia – equivalent to 1.5 points per $1.

How to apply

You can apply for the BOQ Specialist Platinum card online or by calling the BOQ Specialist team of 1300 131 141. Before applying, make sure you meet the following eligibility criteria and have all the details and documents needed for the application.

Eligibility criteria

  • Minimum income. You must earn at least $60,000 per year.
  • Profession. You can apply for this card if you work in a medical, dental or veterinary profession, are studying in one of these fields or if you are a qualified accountant.

Card benefits

  • Qantas Points per $1 spent. The BOQ Specialist Platinum earns 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases in Australia and 1 Qantas Point per $1 on eligible international spending. Eligible spending covers most everyday purchases but excludes transactions such as cash advances, balance transfers, BPAY payments, account fees, payments to the ATO and other government transactions.
  • Additional points for Qantas spending. This card offers 1 additional Qantas Point per $1 spent with Qantas when you pay for Qantas flights (with a QF flight number), Qantas Frequent Flyer membership fees or Qantas Club membership joining and annual fees.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. The BOQ Specialist Platinum card has an annual fee of $150 p.a. Make sure you consider this cost when weighing up the potential value you'll get from points and perks.
  • Purchase interest rate. While the 20.5% p.a. purchase rate on this card is similar to the rates on other frequent flyer credit cards, it will quickly add up if you carry a balance. So if you're planning to pay off purchases over a few months, you may want to look at low rate options as well.

    How do I roughly work out how much interest I would pay if I transferred $600 from my credit card into another account & paid it back within 3 weeks? Thanks

      Hi Lauren,

      Thanks for your inquiry.
      Please note that you’ve come through finder.com.au, an online comparison service and not BOQ Specialist.

      Unfortunately, there is currently no balance transfer offer for BOQ Specialist Platinum Credit Card. You may need to contact BOQ Specialist directly to verify if they can accept balance transfer for a short term such as 3 weeks.

      For a comparison of balance transfer credit cards that offer 0% interest, kindly refer to this page.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Debbie
