Our verdict

This card offers up to 80,000 bonus Qantas Points, travel perks and a discounted $349 annual fee in the first year.

The Qantas Premier Platinum has competitive points per $1 earn rates and travel perks including lounge invitations and a discounted companion flight offer. If you're a new cardholder, you'll also get 60,000 bonus Qantas Points when you apply by 01 May 2024 and spend $3,000 on eligible purchases within the first 3 months from approval. And another 20,000 bonus points if you haven’t earned Qantas Points with a credit card in the last 12 months. That’s enough for a one-way business class flight between Brisbane and Tokyo (68,400 points plus fees and taxes) or 2 return economy flights between Sydney and Auckland (72,000 points plus fees and taxes).

Pros

  • Up to 80,000 bonus Qantas Points
  • Up to 2 Qantas Points per $1 spent
  • Balance transfer offer of 0% p.a. for 12 months
  • Discounted $349 first-year annual fee

Cons

  • The standard $399 annual fee is relatively high
  • You will not get interest-free days on purchases if you’re carrying a balance transfer debt
  • While most Australian spending earns 1 point per $1, anything over $10,000 in a statement period earns a lower rate of 0.5 points per $1
