To give you an idea of your points potential, you can use 60,000 Qantas Points to fly from Perth to Singapore in business class (50,000 points), Sydney to Christchurch in business (36,000 points), Melbourne to Los Angeles in Economy (41,900 points).

      Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for your question. As it says on the terms and conditions of this card, existing customers who currently hold an Amplify Platinum or Amplify Signature card issued by St.George, Bank of Melbourne or BankSA, or who have held one in the last 12 months, are not eligible for this offer.

      Hope this helps!

      Best,
      Nikki
