Our verdict

Offers up to 70,000 bonus Qantas Points and a discounted annual fee of $150 in the first year, which goes to $250 after that.

The NAB Qantas Rewards Premium Credit Card is suited to frequent flyers who want rewards for their everyday spending and some modest extra perks. Right now, it offers 60,000 bonus Qantas Points when you apply as a new cardholder and spend $2,000 on everyday purchases in the first 60 days. And another 10,000 bonus Qantas Points when you keep the card for at least 12 months. That means you'd need to pay the discounted $150 first-year annual fee and the $250 p.a. annual fee that applies from the second year on (adding up to a $400 combined total) to collect the total 70,000 bonus points on offer.

The NAB Qantas Rewards Premium Credit Card earns 0.66 points per $1 to $3,000 spent per statement period and then 0.33 points per $1 spent up to $6,000. So if you plan to put more than $6,000 each month, you may want to compare credit cards to find one with a higher (or no) points cap.

Re this point “These points will be credited to your account within 3 months of meeting the spend requirement.” How long does it take on average for the points to be added to the Qantas account? Will the points still be there should I decide to cancel the card?


Amy Bradney-George Finder

Hi Viv,

The terms and conditions for this offer simply state that points will be added to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account “within 3 months of meeting the spend requirement”, so you’ll typically need to factor that timeframe into your decision. If you have further questions about this offer, you can contact NAB on 13 22 65. It’s also worth noting that points earned per $1 of eligible spending on this card are typically added to your frequent flyer account after each statement period (within 2 days of the closing date on your statement).

In regards to cancelling the card, any points that have been added to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account will remain there, subject to the Qantas Frequent Flyer terms and conditions. I hope this helps.

Interstate traveler

July 11, 2023

Hi, I’m traveling interstate and hiring a car, it would seem this card (which I have) offers car rental insurance excess of up $5000, if I opt to not take the car hire companies insurance my excess will be $4,100.

1. Does this mean I am fully covered by the the credit card for the insurance excess

2. Do I need to do anything before hiring the car ior do I just contact NAB after the fact if I did need to claim the $4,100 excess?

If you’re an existing cardholder then I suggest contacting NAB directly. They can provide more detailed answers than we can.

Morning, what is classed as eligible services. i am currently looking at building up qantas points.


Elizabeth Barry Finder

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for your question.

Eligible spending to earn Qantas Points includes most everyday transactions.

NAB considers these types of transactions as ineligible and you therefore will not earn points: Cash advances, bank charges, balance transfers, buying foreign exchange or travellers cheques, ATO payments, transactions where a cardholder uses a card to access linked transaction accounts and transactions for gambling or gaming purposes.

Hope this helps,

Hi There,

Is there a online calculator I could use to work out how much points I could potentially earn from the amount I spend. I am planning on spending around $8000.


Nikki Angco

May 28, 2018

Hi Paul,

I’m afraid that there’s no available online calculator to compute points. Although, this is how you may compute your $8,000 spending, manually:


You will earn 0.66 points per $1 on eligible purchases for the first $3,000 spent per statement period.

For spending between $3,001 and $6,000 in a statement period, you will earn 0.33 points per $1 spent on your eligible purchases.

There’s a cap of 3,000 points for every statement period.

How to compute:

0.66 x $3,000 = 1,980 points (earned in the first statement period)

0.33 x $5,000 = 1,650 points (earned in your next statement period)

You can also log into your NAB online banking account where you can conveniently view your points and redeem them when you’re ready.

Hi, I’m about to travel interstate. If I hire a car using my nab Qantas card, will my complimentary travel insurance give me total insurance protection, or do I need to purchase additional insurance from the car hire company?

Hi Mackey,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that we are not affiliated with NAB or any company we feature on our site and so we can only offer a general advice.

Yes, NAB Qantas Rewards Premium Credit Card includes Interstate flight insurance under their complimentary travel insurance. You may be covered for rental vehicle insurance excess if you rent a car. There are more insurances covered for this card as stated on this page.

We suggest contacting NAB directly to confirm this info or visit their official site.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
