The Jetstar Credit Card

Allowing you to earn rewards points as you travel, the Jetstar Credit Card could be the perfect credit card for you if you fly frequently with Jetstar. With a heap of Jetstar-related extras, this card has plenty going for it, and if you apply, you can also benefit from 0% on balance transfers for 14 months.

What we love...

Now, on to what makes the Jetstar Credit Card worthwhile on a day-to-day basis. As a travel rewards card, the Jetstar Credit Card lets you earn 1 Jetstar Dollar for every $200 you spend on eligible purchases.

What’s not so great...

While the Jetstar Credit Card has a low annual fee, its purchase rate and cash advance rate is pretty high. To circumvent this issue, it’s best to avoid paying interest altogether, and whenever possible, clear your balance each statement period to avoid interest accruing on your purchases.

Why should you choose this card?

It’s a no-brainer. If you fly with Jetstar on a regular basis, it makes sense to choose a credit card that rewards you for your spending, while providing worthwhile Jetstar-related perks. So, what kind of perks are on offer with the Jetstar Credit Card?

As a cardholder, you can fly interest free, paying 0% p.a. interest for six months on flight or hotel bookings of $300 or more made on jetstar.com or via the Jetstar call centre. These transactions will automatically receive the interest free offer.

You will also save on payment fees when you use your Jetstar Credit Card to book flights on jetstar.com or via the Jetstar call centre. In addition, you can take advantage of 10% off food and drinks purchases when you use your card on board any Jetstar flight.

With its introductory balance transfer rate, the Jetstar Credit Card can help you save on interest if you transfer a balance. However, if you clear your balance, you can enjoy up to 55 days interest free on purchases, as long as you have paid off any balance transfers.

Overall Rating

A great option for regular Jetstar travellers, allowing cardholders to earn Jetstar Dollars, with plenty of Jetstar-related perks on offer and 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 14 months.

You hear so much about how rewards cards arenâ??t worth it but if you travel and you get the right rewards card it can be a great thing. I travel around Australia a lot and use jetstar. This card has cheap annual fee and cheap interest and I get the rewards I want.
