Benefits and features of the Qantas Premier Everyday Mastercard

  • Up to 42,000 bonus Qantas Points. New cardholders who apply by 31 October 2019 will collect 7,000 points each month for the first 6 months when you spend $1,000 or more on eligible purchases. To give you an idea, 42,000 Qantas Points are enough for a one-way economy flight from Sydney to Hong Kong.

If you need to pay down an existing debt, you can take advantage of a balance transfer offer of 0% p.a. for the first 12 months with no balance transfer fee when you apply by 31 October 2019. Any remaining balance at the end of the introductory period will accrue interest at the cash advance rate (currently 21.99% p.a.). You can transfer up to 80% of your approved credit limit from up to 4 credit cards, store cards, loans or other credit accounts not issued by Citi. Please note that balance transfers don't earn Qantas Points and you will not be eligible for interest-free days while you carry a balance transfer debt.
  • Qantas Points as you spend. You'll earn 0.75 Qantas Points per $1 spent up to $3,000 per statement period (2,250 points) and 0.4 Qantas Points per $1 spent thereafter.

    If I have a QANTAS Amex card, does this mean I am not eligible for the 40,000 bonus points? What if the Amex card primary cardholder was my wife, and I was the primary cardholder for the Mastercard? (Despite us both having supplementary cards for each)

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JhezNovember 17, 2018Staff

      Hello Jarrod,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Upon checking, up to 40,000 bonus Qantas Points offer is available to new approved Qantas Premier Everyday credit card account holders who apply by 30 November 2018 and if you have not held a Qantas card in the last 12 months. Hence, since you have a Qantas card, you will not be eligible for the bonus offer.

    The $2,000 I have to spend over the first two months in order to be eligible for the 40,000 bonus QFF, is that calendar month or statement months?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JhezNovember 13, 2018Staff

      Hello Mazza,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Please note that to be eligible for the 40,000 bonus points, you must spend at least $2,000 each month for the first two months from card approval. Bonus Qantas Points will ordinarily be credited within 6 – 8 weeks of meeting the spend criteria.

      Please note that bonus periods typically start from the account opening, which is the day your account is actually approved. That means the timeline is not based on your statement closing date or when your card is activated and doesn’t necessarily coincide with the application date. Hence, it’s based on the approval date.

    Hi, with respect to ‘eligible purchases’ for a QANTAS Premier Everyday account. Where is this defined? For instance, can I use the card to purchase car or house insurance. Thank you.

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      NikkiNovember 6, 2018Staff

      Hi Mick,

      Thanks for reaching out! You may find the list of eligible purchases of this card or any other card in their terms and conditions or product disclosure statement of the card and is normally available on the bank’s site. I took the liberty of checking and it says:

      “Eligible means any purchase excluding (but not limited to) Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, Special Promotions, BPAY payments, purchases of foreign currency and travellers cheques, transactions made in operating a business, payments to other Citi accounts, bank fees and charges such as interest and ATM charges, transactions made using Qantas Points and government related transactions. Government related transactions include transactions with government or semi-government entities, or relating to services provided by or in connection with government (for example but not limited to transactions made at Australia Post, payments to the Australian Taxation Office, council rates, motor registries, tolls, parking stations and meters, fares on public transport, fines and court related costs).”

      Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.

      Cheers,
      Nikki

    With regards to 0% for 6 months on Qantas spend, does it mean if I buy Qantas tickets will have up to 6 months interest free to pay them? If so, do I need to buy them online?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JeniOctober 13, 2018Staff

      Hi Luchis,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      That is correct. You can enjoy 6 months interest-free on your first Qantas spend made within the first 6 months from card approval. As per the Important Information part of the QantasMoney.com page, Qantas Spend means the following: flights booked directly through qantas.com and Qantas Contact Centres; Qantas flights booked through selected travel agents; Qantas Frequent Flyer and Qantas Club membership, joining and annual fees; Qantas Gift Vouchers, purchases from qantasshop.com.au, qantasstore.com.au and qantasepiqure.com.au.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni
