Expert review

You can take advantage of a competitive earn rate and boost your rewards with bonus points when you use the Qantas Premier Platinum Mastercard. To give some examples, you could fly return from Brisbane to Denpasar in business class (42,200 points each way) or return from Perth to Doha in economy (45,000 points each way) with 100,000 Qantas Points.

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.

How to apply

You can apply for the Qantas Premier Platinum online in 10 minutes. Before you apply, check if you meet the eligibility criteria and that you have the necessary information to complete the application:

Eligibility criteria

  • Income. You must earn at least $35,000 per year to apply for this card.
  • Current Qantas Premier cardholder status. You won't be eligible to apply for this card if you are the primary cardholder of another Qantas Premier credit card account.

Card benefits

  • Up to 100,000 bonus Qantas Points. Earn 80,000 bonus points when you apply and get approved for a Qantas Premier Platinum by 28 May 2020 and spend at least $5,000 on eligible purchases within the first 90 days of card approval. Receive an additional 20,000 bonus Qantas Points within 12 weeks of paying the second year's annual fee. Eligible purchases include most everyday spending but exclude things like cash advances, balance transfers, BPAY payments and government related transactions. Your bonus points will be credited to your account within 6 to 8 weeks of meeting the spend requirement.
  • Qantas Points per $1 spent. You'll earn 2 points per $1 spent on Qantas flights, Qantas Club membership and purchases through the Qantas Store, 1.5 points per $1 spent overseas and 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on eligible purchases in Australia up to $10,000 per month (0.5 points per $1 spent after that).
