    Hello, I’ve read some conflicting information about this card. Can someone please confirm:
    – 2 Qantas Frequent Flyer points per $1 spent on the card
    – Unlimited points can be earned
    – $49 opt in fee is to join Citirewards, not Qantas Frequent Flyer

    How do I find out information about the unlimited airport lounge access. E.g. is it only Qantas lounges? What if the airport doesn’t have Qantas lounge?
