Our verdict

This mid-tier frequent flyer credit card offers up to 70,000 bonus Qantas Points and complimentary insurance, with a discounted $174 first-year annual fee.

The BankSA Amplify Qantas Platinum boasts a relatively competitive bonus points offer, especially when you compare the spend requirement to other frequent flyer cards with bonus point offers. To give you an idea of your points potential, you could book a family getaway to Byron Bay with four return economy flights between Sydney and Ballina (64,000 points in total) or fly solo with a one-way business class booking between Brisbane and Tokyo (68,400 points).

Pros

  • Up to 70,000 bonus points offer
  • Balance transfer offer of 0% p.a. for the first 24 months
  • $174 first-year annual fee ($199 p.a. thereafter), including Qantas fee
  • Complimentary travel and purchase insurances

Cons

  • Charges a one-time 1% balance transfer fee
  • The earn rate of 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 spent is lower than some other platinum cards
  • Does not offer airport lounge passes

Would I be eligible to get the Qantas bonus points even though I had a St.george amplify card less than 6 months ago?

Hi Steven,


Unfortunately you are ineligible as you need to have not held a card for the previous 12 months. You can compare other frequent flyer credit cards here.


I hope this helps,

Hi Wendy,

Yes, you would be eligible to apply. According to the terms and conditions, this offer is not available to “existing customers who currently hold an Amplify, Amplify Platinum or Amplify Signature card issued by BankSA, St.George or Bank of Melbourne, or who have held one in the last 12 months”. So, as long as you don’t have one of those cards and meet the other eligibility requirements, you can apply. I hope that helps.

Hi,

I currently have a St George Amplify Platinum, can I still qualify for the Bonus Points on signing up for this card? I know BoM Amplify Platinum had a ‘no ‘ clause if you had closed a BoM/St Geo/ BSa/Amplify rewards cards in the past 12 months?

Hi Justin,


Thank you for leaving a question. Yes, when you apply and are approved for the BankSA Amplify Platinum Qantas card by 22 May 2019, you can score 50,000 bonus Qantas Points when you spend $2,000 within 90 days of approval.


Hope this helps.


Cheers,

Val
