Expert review

The NAB Rewards Platinum card is suited to cardholders who want to reward their spending but prefer the flexibility of bank reward points. You can use your points to book travel through Webjet, purchase products from the NAB Rewards store or exchange for partnered frequent flyer points with Virgin Australia’s Velocity, Cathay Pacific’s Asia Miles, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer or Air New Zealand's Airpoints Dollars.

You can transfer a minimum of 3,000 NAB Rewards Points for 1,500 Velocity Points, 1,000 KrisFlyer Miles, 1,000 Asia Miles or $15 Air New Zealand Airpoints Dollars. As an example, you could exchange 60,000 NAB Rewards Points for 30,000 Velocity Points. As KrisFlyer, Asia Miles and Air New Zealand Airpoints aren’t directly linked with any Australian rewards credit card, this could be a good option if you belong to one of these programs.

      Hi Ben!

      Please refer to the Overview of Travel and Medical Insurance Cover by NAB Rewards Card:

      You may access the benefit of this Overseas travel and medical insurance cover:
      1. if you meet the eligibility criteria; and
      2. the loss or damage occurs during the period of cover.

      Eligibility criteria

      1. You were ninety (90) years of age or under before the date of departure for your trip; and
      2. You (or the accompanying NAB Cardholder) had purchased on a NAB card a minimum of $500* (inclusive of taxes and other charges) of pre-booked transport costs (airfares and/or cruise) and/or land content (tours, hire cars or other hired transport and accommodation) prior to the commencement of the trip. The purchase must be debited to a NAB Card prior to your departure from Australia. The purchase must also have been transacted in one of the following ways: – If using your NAB Credit Card – purchases using your credit card facility directly charged by the merchant or using the linked PayPal account; or – If using your NAB Gold Visa Debit Card – purchases using your debit card either by using the physical card or by providing the debit card number when paying for your purchases or using linked PayPal account.

      Usually, QBE will respond to requests from NAB Cardholders seeking a policy number by providing a letter of eligibility which sets out: (a) the NAB Cards Insurances policy number; and (b) the eligibility criteria.

      You can go click “Go to Site” of this page. Once redirected to NAB website, look for “Important Information” and download the Product Disclosure Statement of NAB Insurance Policy to get the full details and QBE Hotline.

      Hope this helps.

      Hi Wei,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      There are no charges if you will be using your NAB Rewards Platinum Card when purchasing through international sellers/online stores, like Amazon. You will be informed by the seller/store if there are any fees that will include in your purchase. It should show the rundown and total of your purchase on the provided online receipt.

      Cheers,
      Rench

      Hi Greg,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      NAB Rewards points are not transferable to Qantas Frequent Flyer program. However, you may redeem them for Air New Zealand’s Airpoints, Asia Miles and Virgin Australia’s Velocity points.

      You can redeem either 0.005 Airpoints Dollars or 0.33 Asia Miles or 0.5 Velocity points for every NAB Rewards point, with a minimum transfer amount of 3,000 NAB Rewards points.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Jason

    Are the bonus reward points transferable to Qantas and if so, how many QF points will the amount to? You mention one One World carrier, Cathay, but not Qantas.

      Hi Daniel,

      Thank you for your question.

      Then bonus points are not transferable to Qantas frequent flyer because it’s not among NAB’s airline partner programs. You can, however, redeem points for travel rewards directly through Webjet, or transfer a minimum of 30,000 points to your Velocity, Asia Miles or Airpoints frequent flyer account.

      If you’re interested in Qantas frequent flyer credit cards with bonus points, you can check our comparison on this page.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you are referring to the credit limit of this card, the minimum limit is $6,000. You can get a higher credit limit, depending on NAB’s overall assessment of your financial condition.

    Hi

    I am a customer of NAB. I don’t currently have a NAB credit card, however, I did have one just over a year ago which I canceled. If I apply for this credit card will I still be eligible for the bonus points and for the first years fee to be waived?

      Hi Andrew,

      Thank you for reaching out.

      Actually, this offer is not available when closing/transferring from another NAB credit card account or in conjunction with any other NAB offer. I suggest that you contact NAB directly to enquire whether your application will be considered as new credit card application or not. You can contact them on 13 22 65.

      Meanwhile, you may want to check other credit cards with no annual fee and with rewards on this page.
