Expert review

Right now the Qantas Premier Platinum is one of the only credit cards that offers bonus Qantas Status Credits and bonus Qantas Points. To give you an idea of the value, you’d earn 80 Status Credits for a one-way business class flight from Sydney to Perth – which could cost hundreds of dollars. With the bonus points, you’d have enough for a return business class flight between Melbourne and Sydney (83,000 points plus fees and taxes) – because spending $4,000 on eligible purchases would give you an extra 4,000 Qantas Points. Or you could get $375 worth of Woolworths digital gift cards (77,700 points for a combination of $250, $100, and $25 gift cards).
