How long between cards do you need before you can receive the bonus QFF points? Thanks

Hi Jim,


I hope that I’ve understood your questions correctly. Once approved for the Citi Premier Qantas credit card, you’ll need to spend $4,000 within the first 90 days from card approval to receive the 100,000 bonus Qantas Points and these will be credited to your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership account within 8 weeks of meeting the spend criteria.


You’re eligible for the 100,000 bonus Qantas Points if you have never held this card, even if you are a past or existing Citibank customer.


Cheers,


Chris

Are customers who previously held a Citi card eligible for the 100,000 QFF points?

You’re eligible for the 100,000 bonus Qantas Points if you are a past or existing Citibank customer that has never held a Citi Premier Qantas Credit Card.

– you must apply for the Citi Premier Qantas Credit Card by 28 April 2022

– spend a minimum of $4,000 on eligible retail purchases using the card within 90 days from approval

– you must be a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer Program and provide your membership number to Citibank.


I hope this helps.

Am I eligible for the 100,000 points if I opt for the balance transfer, pay off the balance transfer immediately within the 1st month and spend $5000 within first 90 days? Also, if I pay the annual fee of $444 for the 2nd year and decide to close the card am I eligible for refund of annual fee prorate?

Hi Kenneth,


Thank you for your question. You will receive 100,000 bonus Qantas Points when you spend a minimum of A$5,000 on your Citi Premier Qantas Card within 90 days from approval. Please note that this is for eligible transactions only. Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, refunds, chargebacks, Special Promotions and spend on a Linked Diners Club Card do not contribute to the spend threshold.


In regard to the prorated annual fee refund, there’s no confirmation from the Citi website if they’re still doing this if you decide you want to close the credit card. You may need to contact Citi directly to confirm this.


Please make sure to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the policy, as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statement PDS/T&C’s of the policy before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you. If necessary, speak to the insurance brand to verify any details.


Regards,

Jhezelyn

Hi Robert,


Thanks for your message and for contactin finder.


The Citi Signature Visa can give you 2 complimentary lounge visits however this is only for the primary cardholder only. Also, to activate this, you must enroll into your complimentary Priority Pass membership on the Citibank website. As per the Citibank site, once enrolled, you will get the card in the mail after 15 working days. Unused visits cannot be carried forward to the following membership year. The total number of complimentary visits will be reset to two at the beginning of each membership year while you remain a Citi Rewards Signature Credit Cardholder. The membership is subject to the Priority Pass™ Conditions of Use. Please note that within Australia, Priority Pass is currently available at Cairns, Darwin and Brisbane International Airports and Sydney Kingsford Smith. For the full list of up to date airport lounges and Priority Pass™ Conditions of Use please refer to the Priority Pass website.


Hope this helps! Feel free to message us should you have further questions.


Regards,

Nikki

I’m interested in applying for a Citi Qantas Signature Credit Card and get the 50k Qantas points.


I’d also like to avail of the 0% balance transfer. I understand that I need to spend of $2k to qualify for the 50k Wantas points, will that invalidate the 0% balance transfer rate even if I make the minimum monthly payment required for the balance transfer and also pay for new purchases in full amount?

Hi MA,


Thank you for your inquiry.


If you are approved for the Citi Qantas Signature Credit Card, you can actually request for a BT and take advantage of the 0% p.a. interest for 6 months and you can still use the card for new purchases while on BT promotion. However, please keep in mind that if you are using up the 80% of the available credit limit for the BT of your, you may also have to allot more than $2,000 of your credit limit so that you can still meet the spending criteria of $2,000 to qualify for the 50,000 bonus Qantas Points.


Your approved credit limit will come into play in this scenario to accommodate the balance/debt you want to transfer and the $2,000 spending criteria. The higher the credit limit you have, the better. Please also note that your credit limit will be determined by Citibank depending on their assessment of your ability to repay credit by taking into account your income, assets, other liabilities and even credit history.


For your new purchases, you should pay them in full at the payment due date so that you won’t be charged 20.99% p.a. interest in your next billing.


Cheers,

May
