Our verdict

Offers a competitive earn rate and up to 120,000 bonus Qantas Points, but you'll need to wait a year for 30,000 of them.

The NAB Qantas Rewards Signature has one of the biggest bonus Qantas Points offers on the market right now, with 120,000 bonus points up for grabs if you keep the card for at least 13 months. To give you an idea of your points potential, you could book a return economy flight from Sydney to New York (110,400). You could also redeem them for $525 worth of Woolworths WISH digital gift cards through the Qantas Marketplace (109,100 points for two $250 gift cards and 5,500 for one $25 gift card).

To get 90,000 of these bonus points, you’ll need to spend $3,000 on eligible purchases within the first 60 days of account opening. You then need to keep the account open for over 12 months (paying the second year’s annual fee) in order to get the other 30,000 bonus Qantas Points.

Pros

  • Up to 120,000 bonus Qantas Points
  • Discounted $295 annual fee for the first year
  • Complimentary insurance covers

Cons

  • Spend requirement to get bonus points is tricky
  • High ongoing annual fee of $395
  • No lounge passes or travel credit

The NAB Qantas Rewards Signature is suited to travellers who want to earn Qantas Points as they spend and who will use the card's extra features (like the complimentary insurance covers) to justify the annual fee.

These points will be credited to your account within 3 months of meeting the spend requirement. The other 30,000 bonus points will be credited in the 13th month when you’ve kept your account open.

Hi there, If we get 15k approved card limit. Then, we use a balance transfer option of lets say $10k and also spend $3000 from card within first 60 days. Do we still get the Qantas points?

Hi Ace,


Provided you meet the minimum spend requirement, you’ll get the bonus points.

If I was to take out this card and have a additional card holder, do both the cards spending go towards the one account?

Hi Rob,

Yes, you would just need to provide your Qantas Frequent Flyer account details on or after applying for the card. Then both the primary card and any additional cards would earn points for that Qantas Frequent Flyer account. I hope this helps.

I have a NAB. Visa debit card, this will not be classified as a NAB Qantas rewards card will it?

Hi Gary,


No this wouldn’t be considered a NAB visa card and therefore you would still be eligible to apply and collect any bonus offers.

Hi LK,

The points would remain in your Qantas Frequent Flyer account once they have been added there, even if you cancelled the card after that. But keep in mind that if you cancel the card before the points have been added to your frequent flyer membership, you would not get the points. I hope this helps.

Hi, I am looking to apply for NAB signature card. What is the minimum income requirement to apply?

Hi Sathyan,

NAB does not list a specific income amount that’s required for this card. But it does state you need to receive a regular income. It’s also worth considering this card’s minimum credit limit, which is currently $15,000. Your application would need to show that you have enough income to service the minimum limit after you cover all your existing financial commitments. Finder’s guide to minimum income requirements has more details that may be helpful. If you have further questions about this card or the application, you can call NAB on 13 22 65 to discuss your specific situation. I hope this helps.
