Our verdict

Offers 20,000 bonus Qantas Points and a strong earn rate per $1 spent, with a $249 annual fee.

The Qantas American Express Premium earns 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on most purchases (and 0.5 points per $1 with government bodies). Its 20,000 bonus Qantas Points offer can also help you get extra value from the card. For example, it's enough to get a one-way business class flight from Brisbane to Canberra (18,400 points) or $75 worth of Woolworths WISH gift cards through the Qantas Marketplace (16,450 points).


  • 20,000 bonus Qantas Points offer
  • Up to 2 Qantas Points per $1 on eligible spending
  • 2 complimentary Qantas Club lounge invitations per year
  • Complimentary domestic and international travel insurance
  • Up to 4 additional cardholders


  • Relatively high $249 annual fee
  • High 23.99% p.a. interest rate for purchases
  • Only offers up to 44 days days interest-free on purchases, as opposed to most cards with up to 55 days
  • 3% foreign currency conversion fee
  • $30 late payment fee

It's not the biggest bonus points offer on the market. But the high earn rate, lounge passes, complimentary insurance covers and other Amex perks, mean the Qantas American Express Premium credit card could be what you're looking for if you don't want to shell out for a $300+ annual fee every year.
