Expert review

The Citi Prestige Qantas Card has a competitive introductory offer, giving you a way to get 100,000 Qantas Points in a few months if you meet the spend requirement. That's enough to fly return from Melbourne to Auckland in business class (83,000 points) – with points left over. It’s also enough points to book 2 return premium economy flights from Sydney to Christchurch (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.
