Expert review

The Qudos Bank Visa Platinum credit card is suited to people who want to earn points while saving on interest costs. This card offers a competitive points earn rate, but you should consider how the reduced earn rate after you spend $2,500 each month could impact your overall points potential. This card charges a relatively high annual fee, especially when compared to other Qantas Frequent Flyer credit cards that offer bonus points as well as competitive earn rates. Make sure that you’re taking full advantage of the rewards and card features to help outweigh this cost.

How to apply

You can apply for the Qudos Bank Visa Platinum credit card online. Before you get started, check if you meet the eligibility criteria and have the necessary information to complete the application.

Eligibility criteria

  • Age. You must be over 18 years of age.
  • Residency. You must be an Australian resident.

Card benefits

  • Earn Qantas Points. You'll earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent up to $2,500 per month and 0.5 points after that. You'll also score 1 additional point per $1 spent on eligible Qantas products and services in Australia. If you're not already a Qantas Frequent Flyer, you can join and save the $99.50 membership fee with this card.
  • Introductory interest rates. You can cut interest costs with a low introductory rate of 4.99% p.a. on purchases, cash advances and balance transfers for the first 5 months. A 18.99% p.a. interest rate applies to any debt at the end of the introductory period.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This card charges a $249 p.a. annual fee.
  • Interest rates. Outside of any introductory offers, your purchases will attract a 18.99% p.a. interest rate.

      Hi Levo,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, you would not be able to accrue Qantas points on BPay transactions.

      Cheers,

      Hi Ally,

      Thanks for your question. The Qantas Credit Union Visa Platinum card doesn’t list a set minimum income requirement. Instead, they’ll assess your application based on a few factors including income and credit history.

      Before applying, you may wish to get in touch with the Qantas Credit Union customer service team to discuss your likelihood of approval.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,

      Sally

      Hi Jenny, thanks for your inquiry!

      The points earnings on this card are uncapped. Unfortunately any fee or charge, including any government charges and cash advances (bill payments) are exempt from points accumulation.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
