Our verdict

No longer available

In 2023, credit card issuer Macquarie announced that it would no longer offer Woolworths credit cards. If you already have a Woolworths credit card, it will be replaced with a Macquarie Rewards credit card between June and August 2023. We’ve kept the details below for reference. You can also compare a wide range of rewards credit cards available on Finder right now.

Pros

  • This card offers a promotional balance transfer of 0% for 14 months with no balance transfer fee.
  • Take advantage of a discounted annual fee of $99 for the first year.
  • Earn an additional Qantas point per $1 spent on selected Qantas products and services.
  • Save 10% off your shop once per month on selected dates.

Cons

  • After the promotional balance transfer period, any balances remaining will accrue interest at the variable cash advance rate (currently 20.49%)

The Woolworths Qantas Platinum Credit Card combines the features of a balance transfer card with a premium frequent flyer product. The length of the 0% balance transfer offer is mid-range when compared to other offers, but it doesn’t charge a balance transfer fee which is a plus.

While the balance transfer feature can help you save on interest costs, the frequent flyer program and shopping perks reward you when you spend. The earn rate is particularly competitive if you regularly shop at Woolworths. Unlike some other platinum frequent flyer cards, this doesn’t currently offer any bonus points on signup.

I am enquiring about the “Platinum Perk” of entitling to fuel discounts. How is this discount achieved? Is it when you redeem points for $10 credit, or is there another discount achieved?

Hi Andrew,


Thank you for your comment.


One of the advantages of using the Woolworths Platinum Credit Card is that you also will get access to some special perks. As for the fuel perks, you get to earn 2 points for every $1 spent on products purchased at CALTEX WOOLWORTHS co-branded fuel outlets. Minimum of 4,000 points is required to receive a $20 Shopping Card. More perks are found on the Woolworths card website.

I am going to purchase an overseas holiday using my Woolworths credit card in full. Do I have to complete the travel insurance forms that is complimentary with this card? If so where do I find them and are my children also covered in this policy?

Hi Mel!


Thanks for the comment.


Family members are only covered if they are with you during the entire trip, as with most insurers’ requirements.


It is best to contact them directly about the forms and other paperworks you would need.


Hope this helps.


Cheers,

Jonathan
