    HI! I am after the best credit card to get as many Qantas points as possible. I am a business owner and will be using the card for all my purchases that I can. I will be paying the owed money before due date and don’t want any fees associated with any purchases.

      Hi Jono,

      Thank you for reaching out.

      You can compare business credit cards here. Looking at it, it shows that American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card gives the higest point at 1.25 per dollar spent while NAB Qantas Business Signature Card gives .66 points per dollar spent.

      Good thing is American Express Qantas Business Rewards gives 120,000 bonus Qantas Points when you were approved on or before July 2019. While NAB Qantas Business Signature Card gives 100,000 bonus Qantas Points (terms and conditions apply). Feel free to check the linked pages should you wish to review further.

      Hope this helps! 😊

      Kind Regards,
      Mai

    Hi, can you earn Qantas FF points on the AMEX card for international transactions, or is it only domestic?

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      It is uncapped for Altitude Business Platinum, 20,000 for Altitude Business Gold and 12,500 points for Altitude Business per statement cycle.

      Hope this helps.

      Hi Ian,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Sorry for the delayed reply. You can actually earn 1 Altitude Rewards point per $1 spent on ATO payments using your Westpac Altitude Business Platinum Credit Card.

      As for the Qantas points, if you opt into the Qantas frequent flyer program (instead of the Altitude Rewards) linked to this card, the rate would be 1 Qantas point per $1 spent and the Qantas points will go straight to your Qantas frequent flyer account.

      Cheers,
      May

    Hi,

    I’m searching for a Card that earns me the best Velocity Points for when i pay the ATO and other purchases using either Visa/Mastercard. I’ve heard there is a Virgin Card that earns 1 point per $1 even with payments to the ATO. Is this true and if so, what card would this be?

    Thanking you in advance

      Hi Charles, thanks for your inquiry!

      Unfortunately Virgin Money/ Velocity does not support reward points with payments to the ATO. Please refer to the following page for earning rewards points by paying tax.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

      Hi Sally, thanks for your inquiry!

      The current ATO earning rates are as follows;

      1 Altitude Point per $1.00 paid to the ATO using your Altitude American Express/ Altitude Platinum and 1 Altitude Point per $1.00 paid to the ATO using your Altitude Platinum Plus American Express.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
