Expert review

The low annual fee and relatively high purchase interest rate make the St.George Amplify Card well-suited to new points collectors who don’t spend a lot on plastic and pay off their balance from month to month.

    Is this card interest free on purchases for 14 months or 55 days?
    It seems to be misleading

      Hi GN,

      Thanks for getting in touch!The St. George Amplify Card offers a 0% interest for 14 months only. After the 14 months, you can then enjoy the 55 days interest free period if you pay your total amount due in full for the month. Hope this clarifies.

      Best,

    how long does the application process take.
    the last part said to send documents thru via fax or email
    but did not actually list any documents required. so I assume verification can be done without this process.
    just wondering the time frame from application to approval.
    thanks

      Hi Jeff,

      Thanks for your question.

      The application process for St. George Amplify Card takes approximately 10 minutes, after which, you should be able to receive a conditional approval or declined result. The actual processing of your documents usually takes 3 – 5 business days. Once you are approved, they will send out your new Credit Card withing about 5 – 7 days.

      Cheers,

    Hi, this card looks good, can I be clear on how the balance transfer works?

    1. I’ve seen with some cards when you do a balance transfer then the interest free period doesn’t apply on new purchases, is this right?

    2. If yes to 1 above, if I pay off new purchases as incurred, will this negate the interest or do these payments get applied to the balance transfer first or something like that?

    3. Are there are costs in paying off the balance transfer early?

    Thanks

      Hi Markie, thanks for your inquiry!

      1. That is correct. When you have an outstanding balance from month to month (like a balance transfer) you will not receive any interest-free days on purchases. A way around this is to apply for a credit card with both 0% purchases and 0% balance transfer. If you repay your purchases on the same day before close of business then this will negate the interest charges. There are no costs in paying off your balance transfer early as it is in your best interest to repay your debt sooner.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

    I am already a qantas frequent flyer member and use my points regularly for overseas flights. am looking at changing cards as previous card have decreased their $ v’s points earned.
    Looking at St George Amplify Signature. Confused as to difference between Amplify Rewards 1 point for $1 and Amplify Qantas 0.75 point for $1.
    I read you get Amplify Travel (domestic and international travel on major airlines). Why would one do Amplify Qantas if Amplify Travel available with Amplify Rewards?

      Hi Kathy, thanks for your inquiry!

      For the St. George Amplify card you can choose between the Amplify Rewards program or Amplify Qantas program for earning points. As a result the earnings rate is different depending on the program.

      So if I already have a Qantas freq Fly account and I choose the Amplify Rewards Points you can by tickets on Jetstar or Qantas flights is that correct. St.George Amplify Card is $79 per year annual fee and you get 1 point for every $$ spent?

      Hi Karen, thanks for your inquiry!

      That is correct, Amplify Rewards points can be redeemed for Jetstar, Virgin Australia and Qantas flights. The earnings rate is 1 point for every $1 spent on eligible purchases. Eligible purchases exclude fees, cash, cash equivalent transactions, refunds or balance transfers debited from the card account.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
