Benefits of NAB flybuys Rewards Card
Rewards points. Cardholders can earn 1 flybuys point for every dollar spent on eligible purchases. These points never expire, allowing you to save your points for a larger reward over time. However, the points are capped at $20,000 spend for every statement cycle.
Frequent flyer point options. The flybuys rewards program gives you the option of transferring them from your flybuys account to either Velocity or Etihad Guest. If you're a Velocity Frequent Flyer member, you'll need at least 2,000 flybuys points to get 870 Velocity Points. A minimum of 10,000 flybuys points is needed for Etihad Guest, which will give you 4,000 frequent flyer miles for your account.
Special balance transfer. Another major benefit of this card is the balance transfer offer, which gives you a 0% p.a. introductory rate for 6 months with no balance transfer fee if you apply for the balance transfer at the time of your credit card application. This can reduce interest charges and help you to pay down debt faster. Do take note that it reverts to the standard cash advance rate thereafter and requires minimum monthly repayments. Offer ends on 12 November 2017.

Important information about this website

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
