Is there a cap on points per month or year? Which airlines can points be transferred to? How many visits to airport lounges per year and which lounge is available for use?

Hi Mark,


Thanks for your questions.


For Macquarie Platinum Card, there is a yearly cap of 250,000 rewards points.


Unfortunately, the Macquarie Platinum Card does not offer complimentary airport lounge access. The points also can’t be transferred to any frequent flyer program.


Cheers,

Anndy

Am I able to balance transfer from a card not under my name? I also used to have a jetstar card from last year is the balance transfer offer still available to me?

Hi Leo,


Thanks for your inquiry.


To answer your first question, balance transfer between two people’s names is allowed by Macquarie Bank according to our balance transfer criteria guide.


However, please take note that balance transfer is not possible between any account issued by Macquarie Bank and your account. It has to come from another bank or financial institution for the transfer to be accepted.


For your next question, yes, the balance transfer offer is still available. However, the application for the Macquarie Platinum credit card is currently not available on our site. Should you wish to proceed with the application, you’ll need to visit the Macquarie Bank’s website.


I hope this has helped.


Cheers,

Arra

Hi Johno,


Thanks for your inquiry.


The Macquarie Bank Black Card does not offer complimentary airport lounge access.


We have a range of credit cards with free airport lounge access to compare. You can press the “Go to site” button of your preferred credit card to proceed with your application. You can also contact the provider if you have specific inquiries.


A gentle reminder, please ensure to read through the relevant product disclosure statement and terms and conditions to ensure that you got everything covered before you apply for the credit card.


I hope this helps.


Cheers,
