Our verdict

Offers 100,000 bonus Qantas Points and luxury perks, including unlimited airport lounge access. Just make sure you get enough value to justify the $749 annual fee.

The Citi Prestige Qantas Card has a competitive introductory offer, giving you a way to get 100,000 Qantas Points in a few months if you meet the spend requirement. That's enough to fly return from Melbourne to Auckland in business class (83,000 points) – with points left over. It’s also enough points to book 2 return premium economy flights from Sydney to Christchurch (72,000 points).

Although this card offers unlimited access to Priority Pass lounges, it doesn’t offer any Qantas Club Lounge invitations, which could be a downside if you regularly travel with Qantas.

Pros

  • 100,000 bonus Qantas Points
  • Up to 1.5 Qantas Points per $1 on eligible spending
  • Unlimited airport lounge access with Priority Pass membership
  • Complimentary luxury airport transfer service
  • Complimentary travel insurance
  • Fourth night free hotel stay offer

Cons

  • High $749 annual fee
  • High 21.49% p.a. interest rate for purchases
  • High 3.4% foreign transaction fee

Do you know what counts as eligible spend to get the bonus points?

Hi Scott, Eligible purchases refer to most everyday transactions like retail shopping, paying an invoice, bookings travel and shopping online.


Ineligible purchases for the purpose of meeting a spend requirement usually include things like: online gambling, interest, fees, cash advances, government payments (eg ATO), balance transfers and BPAY transactions.


Hope this helps!

Would payments for electricity and council rates earn at 1 point per dollar or .5 points per dollar ?

Hi Peter,

Council rates are typically considered government-related transactions, which aren’t considered “eligible transactions” on this card. Electricity payments would earn 0.5 points if they were processed as a purchase (e.g. not BPAY). If you used the Citi PayAll platform, you could earn points on a wider range of payments, such as taxes and miscellaneous bills, as long as the payment is going to an Australian bank account. I hope that helps.
