    If I nominate for the Citi Qantas Rewards Program at application, will the bonus points be allocated as Qantas Reward points or Citibank Rewards?

      Hi Patrick,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      The bonus points that you will receive upon meeting the eligibility requirements would be Citi reward points. Later, you can opt in to Citi Qantas Rewards if you want to earn Qantas points instead. However, please note that the earn rates are different when you’ve opted in to Citi Qantas Rewards compared to those of Citi Rewards credit cards.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

    I have applied for this card previously and I had to cancel the card as I was going for home loan. Am I eligible to apply for this card within 12 months.

      Hi Praveen,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      You may still apply for this card after cancelling this within or after 12 months.

      Please make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    When I click through to Citibank’s website it states the annual fee is $249.
    Does the ongoing annual fee of $149 quoted above only apply when applying via Will it be ongoing or revert to $249 after the second year?

      Hi Diane,

      Thanks for getting in touch! The Citibank Rewards Platinum Credit Card. As it says on our page and the Citibank website. The 1st year upon approval of card gives you $49 annual fee then it reverts back to $149 on the second year. Hope this clarifies!

    Hi does this include domestic travel insurance cover as well?

      Hi Dano,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      Upon checking, I’m afraid the complimentary travel insurance of this card only covers international or overseas travel.

      If in case you are interested in exploring a list of domestic travel insurance, please go to this page instead. On that page, you will see a table that allows you to compare some top insurers within Australia and how their domestic policies work. You can then click on their corresponding “Get Quote” button to learn more.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

    I used to have a Citi Platinum Reward card which was cancelled in 2018, in general there is always a term where you will not be eligible for bonus points should you cancel the card within 12 or 18 months, depending on card providers. However, I did not find such clause here. Am I correct to assume I would be eligible for 100k points once meeting spending criteria even though I cancelled this same type of credit card within 12 months? Thank you.

      Hi Pab,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      I had your question confirmed with a Citi representative and yes you are correct that you are eligible for the promotion as long as you apply before the offer that ends 30 June 2019. Hope this helps!

    Can the Citi Rewards points be converted to Qantas Frequent Flyer Points?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JoshuaMarch 7, 2019Staff

      Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      As of now, you can’t convert your Citi Rewards points to Qantas Frequent Flyer Points, Sharon. The reason is that the points you’ve collected will be lost if you switch between Citi Rewards and Citi Qantas Rewards.

      However, if you want to earn Qantas points directly, you can do so by enrolling your account to the Citi Qantas Rewards program. When you are part of the Qantas rewards program, you would be able to earn Qantas Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases. The points you earn will be automatically credited to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account at the end of each statement period.

      If you want to learn more about Citi Rewards program guide, please go to this page. On that page, you will know how to earn points for your credit card spending and redeem them for travel, shopping and gift cards through the Citi Rewards program.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!
