Expert review

Suited to frequent travellers looking to earn Qantas Points, the NAB Qantas Rewards Signature offers a big 120,000 bonus points offer. That’s enough points to fly return from Melbourne or Sydney to Hong Kong in premium economy. However, the spend requirement is a bit trickier than some other cards.

To get your bonus points, you'll need to spend $3,000 on eligible purchases within the first 60 days of account opening (earning you 90,000 points credited) and the other 30,000 points when keep your card open for over 12 months.

How to apply

If you’ve compared your options and decided the NAB Qantas Rewards Signature card is right for you, make sure you confirm that you meet the eligibility requirements and organise the necessary information before you apply.

Eligibility criteria

  • New cardholder. To be eligible for the bonus points offer, you must be a new customer, meaning you cannot hold or have held a NAB Qantas rewards card in the previous 12 months.
  • Residency. You can apply if you're an Australian citizen or permanent resident. If you are not a citizen or permanent resident, you will need to provide the last overseas address you lived in, as well as other details of your residency status.

Card benefits

  • Bonus Qantas Points. You can give your points balance a boost of 90,000 bonus Qantas Points when you spend $3,000 on everyday purchases within 60 days of opening the account. These points will be credited to your account within 3 months of meeting the spend. The other 30,000 bonus points will be credited in the 13th month when you’ve kept your account open. There’s no specified expiry date for this offer, but NAB may vary or end it at any time.
  • Reduced first year annual fee. Save $100 with a reduced $295 annual fee for the first year, reverting to $395 p.a. thereafter. There’s no specified expiry date for this offer, but NAB may vary or end it at any time.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. Outside of any promotions, this card charges a standard annual fee of $395.
  • Purchase rate. Purchases will collect interest at a rate of 19.99% p.a.

    Hi. I have a NAB Qantas rewards signature card, and have spent over $4000 in less than 60 days. The 60 days was up over 2 months ago, and as yet no points have been awarded. How long should I expect to wait, and who should I contact if no points are awarded. Thank You.

      Hello Brian,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Sorry to hear about you not receiving the bonus points yet. If you have applied and approved within the offer period and you have spent $4,000 on everyday purchases within 60 days of opening your account, then you are eligible for the bonus points. The points will be credited to your points balance within 3 months of meeting the spend criteria.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn

    What constitutes “everyday purchases”? Would paying business purchases constitute “everyday purchases” i.e. if we paid our business expenses such as stock purchases would this qualify for the Qantas bonus points?

      Hi Greg,

      Thank you for reaching out.

      Everyday purchases are those where payments made aren’t processed as cash advances or made through BPAY or over the counter at a bank. Other exclusions include card fees and charges, gambling and gaming costs, government fees and charges, business expenses, ATO payments, fraudulent transactions, refunded transactions, balance transfers and travellers cheques. This means that buying stocks for your business is not considered as an eligible purchase and will not qualify for earning bonus points.

      Kind Regards,
      Mai

      Hi Traveller,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      The NAB website does not specify that this promotion is available as of now, if you have seen this promotions somewhere you may need to directly contact NAB to confirm if this is still active and current. Hope this helps!

    I’m currently a NAB Visa credit card cardholder linked to Virgin but would like to also have a NAB Visa Credit card linked to Qantas.

    Am I still eligible for the bonus points?

      Hi Jarad,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      So long that you haven’t received NAB Qantas Rewards Bonus Points then you’d be eligible for the bonus points. You will be redirected to NAB’s official page after clicking the go to site button on this page, where you may apply for this card. Kindly go through the ‘Important information’ part of the page and make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    With the NAB VISA Rewards, and specifically the 90,000 bonus points offer, will purchases made overseas contribute to the $4000 minimum spend for the first two months? Thank you.

      Hi Gerard,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Overseas purchases made outside or here in Australia is considered an eligible purchase and can contribute to the net purchase amount.

      Hi Sue,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Qantas points redeemed for flights are worth closer to 1.1 cents on domestic, and 0.7 cents on international per point. So for domestic that would equate to $990 and for international that is $630. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,

      Thank you for your comment.

      The government fees are charges are those charges imposed by the government including ATO payments.

      You can earn NAB Rewards and frequent flyer points on bills as long as they’re considered eligible purchases and aren’t processed as cash advances or made through BPAY or over the counter at a bank. Other exclusions include card fees and charges, gambling and gaming costs, government fees and charges, business expenses, ATO payments, fraudulent transactions, refunded transactions, balance transfers and travellers cheques.

    Hi there,

    I’m really confused about this NAB cards eligible purchases. Are Bpay power, gas, telephone etc. included as eligible purchases? Also, does this card offer supplemental cards? If so, how many?

    Kind regards,
    Leesa

      Hi Leesa,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      With NAB, BPAY is not explicitly listed as an ineligible transaction like most credit card providers, so most BPAY transactions are eligible. However, some transactions, like payments to the ATO or government fees & charges, if made through BPAY are still ineligible.

      In regard to your supplemental card query, with this card, you can add one additional cardholder for free.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    How long does it take for the points to be paid – if I make the $4000 minimum spend before 60 days, will the points be paid earlier, or only after 60 days?

      Hi Felicity,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder.

      When you meet the spend requirements of $4000 minimum within the 60 days allowance, your points will be credited after the 60 days elapse.
      Hope this clarifies!
