finder Rewards Roundup: Qantas, American Express and Cash Passport

Sally McMullen 9 September 2016


Pick up some Qantas Points when shopping at David Jones and take advantage of cash back offers with American Express and Cash Passport.

This week in the Rewards Roundup, we'll help you pick up bonus Qantas points when splurging in David Jones and receive cash back offers when you spend for a good cause with your American Express credit card or for registering your new Cash Passport for your next holiday.

Earn 10 bonus Qantas Points per $1 spent on businesswear at David Jones

Do you have an event come up or just want an excuse to suit up? You can turn your next business menswear purchase into bonus Qantas Points with the loyalty program's latest offer. When you shop via Qantas' Online Mall and purchase any of the selected men's businesswear before midnight 12 September, you'll earn 10 bonus Qantas Points instead of the usual 5 points per $1 spent. Please note that this only applies to select items, so make sure that they're included in the offer before you splurge.

Eligible brands include: Loaks, PS by Paul Smith and Paul Smith, Florsheim, Lacost, Kenneth Cole, Local Supply, Emporio Armani, Simon Carter, Ted Baker, Anthony Squires, Thomas Pink, Ben Sherman, Joe Black, Calvin Klein, Van Heusen, DUrban, Canali, Abelard, Sand, Studio W Daniel Hechter, David Jones Brand, Geoffrey Beene, James Harper, Uberstone, West End, Studio Italia, Hardy Amies, Lab by Pal Zileri, Paul Costelloe, Polo Half Lauren, Z Zegna.

Receive up to $20 cash back when you spend with the NSW and SA Cancer Council

If you use your American Express credit card to make a purchase with NSW or South Australia-based Cancer Council stores before 7 October 2016, you could get more than the satisfaction of contributing to a worthy cause. If you spend $80 or more on your card at any of these stores, you'll receive a $20 cash back reward. This offer is limited to the first 5,000 cards to register for the offer, though, so you'll need to register soon if you want to take advantage of the cash back reward. If you register and make an eligible purchase before the offer ends, your credit should appear on your American Express credit card billing statement within 5 business days.

Please note that this offer is strictly only available through NSW or South Australia-based Cancer Council stores. This excludes purchases made through a third party such as a department store like David Jones or Myer. Online, phone and gift card purchases are also excluded from the offer.

Get 2% cash back when you register your new Cash Passport travel card

As well as locking in exchange rates, avoiding currency conversion fees and spending in multiple currencies, you could get 2% cash back on your Cash Passport prepaid travel card. All you need to do is register your Cash Passport card and, until 30 October 2016, you'll get 2% cash back on eligible purchases. So, say you spent $2,000 on your prepaid cash passport on your next holiday, you could receive $40 cash back. This obviously isn't the most profitable cash back reward, but if you were already looking for a prepaid travel card for your next holiday, you may as well take advantage of the opportunity to get something for nothing. If you make an eligible purchase, you should expect to receive the cash back reward within 15 business days from the date you made the transaction.
