    Hi There,

    Is there a online calculator I could use to work out how much points I could potentially earn from the amount I spend. I am planning on spending around $8000.

    • finder Customer Care
      NikkiMay 28, 2018Staff

      Hi Paul,

      I’m afraid that there’s no available online calculator to compute points. Although, this is how you may compute your $8,000 spending, manually:

      Notes:
      You will earn 0.66 points per $1 on eligible purchases for the first $3,000 spent per statement period.
      For spending between $3,001 and $6,000 in a statement period, you will earn 0.33 points per $1 spent on your eligible purchases.
      There’s a cap of 3,000 points for every statement period.

      How to compute:
      0.66 x $3,000 = 1,980 points (earned in the first statement period)
      0.33 x $5,000 = 1,650 points (earned in your next statement period)

      You can also log into your NAB online banking account where you can conveniently view your points and redeem them when you’re ready.

      Cheers,
      Nikki

    Hi, I’m about to travel interstate. If I hire a car using my nab Qantas card, will my complimentary travel insurance give me total insurance protection, or do I need to purchase additional insurance from the car hire company?

    • finder Customer Care
      RenchJune 3, 2017Staff

      Hi Mackey,

      Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that we are not affiliated with NAB or any company we feature on our site and so we can only offer a general advice.

      Yes, NAB Qantas Rewards Premium Credit Card includes Interstate flight insurance under their complimentary travel insurance. You may be covered for rental vehicle insurance excess if you rent a car. There are more insurances covered for this card as stated on this page.

      We suggest contacting NAB directly to confirm this info or visit their official site.

      Hope this helps.

      Best regards,
      Rench

    Do the points automatically transfer to Qantas? To review points collected to we go to Qantas or nab?

      LouMarch 7, 2017Staff

      Hi Kylie,

      Thanks for your question.

      Kindly note that with this credit card, the Qantas Points are earned on net purchases during a card account statement period. Your total points earned in a statement period will be credited to your Qantas Membership Account within two business days following the closing date of each statement period.

      You can check the total points you have accumulated by logging in to your Qantas frequent flyer account.

      Hi Sunny,

      Thanks for your question.

      As stated in the fine prints on NAB’s page “everyday purchases” exclude transactions NAB decides are wholly or partly for gambling or gaming purchases.

    is there an age limit for travel insurance?

    does the spend limit apply to both cards separately?

    • finder Customer Care
      MayAugust 16, 2016Staff

      Hi Robin,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Just to confirm though that you’ve come through to finder.com.au we are an Australian financial comparison website and general information service, not actually NAB nor QBE Insurance.

      NAB complimentary travel insurance is attached to the NAB Premium or NAB flybuys Rewards credit cards.

      As for the age limit to get cover, you must be 90 years of age or under before you leave for your trip. Cardholders between the ages of 76 and 90 years receive limited benefits compared to cardholders aged 75 years and under. Please refer to the Schedule of Benefits for more details outlined in the PDS I sent to your email.

      Furthermore, prior to your trip, you must purchase a minimum of AU$500 (inclusive of taxes and other charges) in pre-booked transportation costs that include fares by air, rail, road or watercraft and/or land content costs such as tours, hire cars or other hired transport and accommodation on your NAB Premium or NAB flybuys Rewards Card.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,
      May

    regarding the bonus points nabs terms state “Your NAB credit card account must be open at time of points fulfilment.”
    what do they mean by tome of fulfilment? does the card have to be open when you use the bonus qantas points or does it only have to be open when the points are put on your frequent flyer account?

    • finder Customer Care
      SharonApril 11, 2016Staff

      Hi Matt, thanks for your question.

      The time of points fulfilment means the period that the bonus points will be credited to your account.

      SharonMarch 9, 2016Staff

      Hi Gerry,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      If you are applying for the card, you can add your wife as an additional cardholder at no extra cost. Just remember that you’re still responsible for the card since it is under your account.

      Cheers,

      Sharon
