Expert review

You can take advantage of a competitive earn rate and boost your rewards with bonus points with the Qantas Premier Platinum. To give some examples, with 100,000 Qantas Points you could fly return from Sydney to Auckland in business class (83,000 points plus fees and taxes) or you could get $500 worth of Woolworths digital gift cards (95,000 points for two $250 cards). After your first eligible spend, you’ll also get 75 bonus Status Credits.

Although the total bonus points offer is high, it’s important to pay attention to the offer conditions. Unlike some other Qantas Frequent Flyer credit cards, you won’t get the total bonus points unless you meet the spend requirement and pay the annual fee on your first card anniversary.
