    Is there a cap on points per month or year? Which airlines can points be transferred to? How many visits to airport lounges per year and which lounge is available for use?

      Hi Mark,

      Thanks for your questions.

      For Macquarie Platinum Card, there is a yearly cap of 250,000 rewards points.

      Unfortunately, the Macquarie Platinum Card does not offer complimentary airport lounge access. The points also can’t be transferred to any frequent flyer program.

    Am I able to balance transfer from a card not under my name? I also used to have a jetstar card from last year is the balance transfer offer still available to me?

      Hi Leo,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      To answer your first question, balance transfer between two people’s names is allowed by Macquarie Bank according to this guide. However, please take note that balance transfer is not possible between any account issued by Macquarie Bank and your account. It has to come from another bank or financial institution for the transfer to be accepted.

      For your next question, yes, the balance transfer offer is still available. However, application for the Macquarie Platinum credit card is currently not available on our site. Should you wish to proceed with the application, you’ll need to visit the Macquarie Bank’s website.

      I hope this has helped.
