finder Rewards Roundup: Qantas and Velocity
Redeem your next reward sooner and enjoy more perks with these bonus points and Status Credits offers from your favourite frequent flyer programs.
Whether you're looking for a new credit card, booking a hotel stay or stopping by your local cafe, here are our top points picks of the week courtesy of Qantas and Velocity Frequent Flyer.
Your next flight is 90,000 bonus points closer with this exclusive offer from finder.
If you apply for the American Express Westpac Altitude Platinum bundle through finder by 31 July 2018, you can earn up to 90,000 bonus points. Depending on your points goals, you can choose a bundle that collects either Qantas Points or Altitude Points.
Regardless of the rewards you choose, you’ll receive 75,000 points when you spend $3,000 on eligible purchases on your Visa card within 90 days of card approval. You’ll also collect 15,000 bonus points when you spend $3,000 on eligible purchases within 90 days of card approval on your Amex.
If you choose Qantas Points, that's almost enough points to fly from Sydney to LA in business class (96,000 points)! If you apply anywhere else, you’ll only earn 75,000 bonus points for meeting the same spend requirement! So this is an easy way to get even more bang for your buck.
You’ll also save with $0 annual fee for the first year for the Amex and the Visa. Considering there’s usually a combined $199 p.a. annual fee, this is an easy way to save a couple of hundred dollars. If you choose the Qantas rewards program, you'll still have to pay the $50 annual Qantas Rewards fee.
