Expert review

The Citi Prestige Qantas has a relatively competitive introductory offer, especially considering that many competing offers require you to spend thousands of dollars to get the bonus points. With 70,000 Qantas Points, you could fly return from Sydney to Honolulu or Tokyo in economy (both 31,500 points each way). It’s also almost enough points to fly from Brisbane to LA in Premium Economy (72,000 points).

Although this card offers unlimited access to Priority Pass lounges, it doesn’t offer any Qantas Club Lounge invitations which could be a downside if you regularly travel with Qantas.
