Expert review

The Qantas Premier Platinum combines solid earn rates with a mix of travel perks that include lounge invitations and a discounted companion flight offer. You can also get extra value from the 90,000 bonus Qantas Points offer, which would be enough for a return business class flight between Sydney and Auckland (87,600 points plus fees and taxes). Or you could get $425 worth of Woolworths digital gift cards (88,090 points for a combination of $250, $100, $50 and $25 gift cards).
