Expert review

You can take advantage of a competitive earn rate and bonus points with the Qantas Premier Platinum. To give some examples, with 80,000 Qantas Points two people could fly return from Sydney to Cairns in economy (72,000 points plus fees and taxes) or you could get $400 worth of Woolworths digital gift cards (76,000 points for four $100 cards). After your first eligible spend, you’ll also get a bonus 75 Status Credits that can help you reach a higher tier of the frequent flyer program.
