While every $50 you spend on eligible purchases, you can earn 1 Jetstar Dollars, and you earn 1 Qantas Point for every dollar spent on eligible purchases. You can redeem your Jetstar Dollars for Jetstar vouchers that you get for your points to book flight tickets or for holidays. The Qantas Frequent Flyer Program enables you to redeem your points for flight upgrades, flight tickets, and a variety of merchandise.
  • Balance transfer offer. You can repay your debt faster without the cost of high interest with the 0% p.a. balance transfer rate that stays in place for the first 14 months. This reverts to the standard purchase rate of 19.99% p.a. at the end of the promotional offer.

  • No more booking and service fees. When you use your Jetstar Platinum Mastercard to book flights on the Jetstar website or call centre you won't need to pay the standard Booking and Service fee.

    Do you earn reward points with payments to the ATO when using the jetstar platinum credit card?

    • Staff
      LouJuly 8, 2016Staff

      Hi Ramo,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, Jetstar Platinum MasterCard will not let you earn rewards points for your payment to the ATO.

      If you want to check credit cards that let you earn points for paying tax bills, you can refer to this page.

      I hope this helps.

      However, you may wish to submit your application directly to Bankwest’s official website.

      I’ve emailed you a link to the page for your convenience.

      I hope this helps.

    If I were to book flights for my children traveling in my care, and charge the purchase to my Jetstar Platinum mastercard, would my children be covered by Jetstar Travel Insurance?

    • Staff
      SallyFebruary 26, 2016Staff

      Hi Emma,

      Thanks for your question. So long as you’ve used your Jetstar Platinum MasterCard to purchase the full fare of their return overseas travel tickets, they’re travelling with you for the entire duration of the trip and they meet the eligibility requirements, they’ll be covered by Jetstar’s complimentary travel insurance.

      I’ve emailed you a copy of the insurance policy document so you can confirm that your children meet the eligibility requirements before leaving on your trip.

      I hope this has helped.

    Hi, if I applied for the Jetstar Platinum Card before 18 Jan 2016, but have to wait up to 10 days now for approval, am I still eligible for the $69 reduced first year fee and the 40000 Qantas points (I am a member)? The T&Cs say: “To be eligible for the bonus Qantas Points offer, you must apply for a Jetstar Platinum MasterCard before 18 January 2016, be approved and opt-in to Qantas Frequent Flyer Rewards. Receive 40,000 bonus Qantas Points if you spend $3,000 on eligible purchases within 60 days of card approval.” The “be approved” part is a bit confusing. Does it mean card approval or approval of the online apply? Otherwise this offer effectively expired on 4 Jan, to allow for the 10 business days approval clause. Please clarify.

      Hi Col,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Kindly note that is an online comparison service and does not represent any credit card issuer such as Jetstar.

      Nonetheless, this particular card required interested applicants to apply and get approved before 18 January 2016 and spend $3,000 on eligible purchases within 2 months of approval to receive 40,000 bonus Qantas Points.

      While it is possible to get approved the same business day, it can also take longer.
      That’s why it would be best to file an application much earlier so you do not miss the opportunity.

      If you wish to clarify on this further, you may get in touch with the Jetstar team directly through the contact details sent to your email.

      Also, for a list of other rewards credit cards, you might want to check our different options here.

      I hope this has helped.

    Hi There,

    I’m looking at applying for a credit card that says that i need to apply before 18.01.2016 to be qualified for the bonus points.

    If i apply tomorrow, am i still eligible. Or does my application need to be approved by that date?

    • Staff
      AllyJanuary 20, 2016Staff

      Hi Amy,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      Most credit card issuers, if not all, require you to get your application approved on or before the offer end date.

      While it is possible to get approved the same business day, it can also take much longer.
      That’s why it would be best to file an application about a week prior so you do not miss the opportunity.

      I hope this has helped.

    Hi, Thanks Sally,
    Another question please, is there any yearly charge on top of the card fee for opting to Qantas FF programme, I’m already a member, if so, would that also apply to an additional card for the wife.

    Regards Terry,

    PS Sorry I forgot to add my name in the previous question.

    • Staff
      SallyDecember 10, 2015Staff

      Hi again, Terry.

      A $39 annual fee applies for each additional card you add to the account. You must be a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer Program to earn and redeem Qantas Points and a joining fee will apply if you’re not already enrolled in the program. If your wife has an additional card, she should be able to earn Qantas points on purchases and they’ll automatically be debited into your frequent flyer account.

      I hope this has helped.

    Can pensioners apply for the Platinum MasterCard?
    Do we just add all our pension totals together as if “income”.
    I’m sure I read somewhere that there are two complementary entry to the Business lounge of Jetstar/Qantas per year.

    • Staff
      SallyDecember 9, 2015Staff

      Hi Terry,

      Thanks for your question.

      You can indeed add together your pension totals for your income, as long as they equal AUD $30,000 cumulatively. Although unfortunately you won’t get complimentary business lounge entry, you will get complimentary Qantas Frequent Flyer membership.

      I hope this has helped.

    Very simple answer YES or NO . Do you get frequent flyer points when you pay your quarterly tax bill at ATO, using Jetstar Platinum.


    • Staff
      DebbieOctober 21, 2015Staff

      Hi Anthony,

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      No, unfortunately Qantas Points won’t be earned in relation to taxes, including GST.
      To understand more about earning rewards points while paying your tax bill, please check this page.
      I hope this helps.

    Does house insurance count as a retail purchase or advanced cash?

    • Staff
      SallySeptember 17, 2015Staff

      Hi Kayla,

      Thanks for your question.

      As mentioned in the terms and conditions, Jetstar Dollars do not accrue and Qantas Points cannot be earned on:
      • cash advances
      • government charges
      • interest and other bank fees and charges (including any GST payable on any of these)
      • special promotions such as balance transfers
      • transactions made in operating a business or in connection with business expenditure
      • transactions that are reversed (refunds)
      • gambling chip purchases
      • payments for credit card protection insurance

      Although the terms and conditions do mention that payments for credit card protection insurance isn’t considered an eligible purchase, you may need to confirm with Jetstar directly whether or not your house insurance is considered an eligible purchase or a cash advance.

      I hope this has helped.
