The Qantas Premier Platinum Credit Card with 100,000 Bonus Qantas Points

Prestige cards can vary greatly in their offerings. Some provide only a handful of convenient features, while others are jam-packed with extras. After checking out the Qantas Premier Platinum Credit Card, we’d have to say this card definitely falls into the latter category.

As a platinum rewards card, it offers a great earn rate, plus, new cardholders can benefit from 100,000 bonus Qantas Points and 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 18 months. And we haven’t even gotten started on all those lovely extras!

What we love...

First up, introductory offers. If you apply by 3 May 2021 for the Qantas Premier Platinum Credit Card you can get 100,000 bonus Qantas Points when you spend $4,000 or more on eligible purchases within 3 months of card approval.

Those points can be spent in the Qantas Store on more than 3,000 products, experiences and vouchers, or on flights and upgrades, potentially getting you from Melbourne to Algiers for 66,200 points, or from Sydney to Istanbul for 61,500 points.

Next, the balance transfer offer. If you have existing credit card debt that you want to pay off, you could transfer it to the Qantas Premier Platinum Credit Card to enjoy 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 18 months. 1% balance transfer fee applies.

Now, let’s move on to some of those fancy features and extras. As a cardholder, you will receive two invitations per year to selected Qantas Lounges, complete with complimentary food, beverages and Wi-Fi.

You can also enjoy discounted companion fares, where once a year, you can save up to 20% on selected domestic flights for you and up to eight companions.

On top of that, you could benefit from six months interest free on your first purchase of selected Qantas products and services, plus complimentary travel insurance for travel booked using your card.

What’s not so great...

When applying for a card such as the Qantas Premier Platinum Credit Card, it’s worth bearing in mind how much it will cost you. For the first year you'll pay $199 - that's a saving of $100. The annual fee for each year is significant at $299, plus, for each additional cardholder, you will pay $50 per year.

It’s also worth taking note of the earn rate on the card, as the domestic spend is tiered, so that you earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 up to $10,000 per statement period, then 0.5 Qantas Point per $1 thereafter.

Why should you choose this card?

The Qantas Premier Platinum Credit Card obviously has plenty to offer – and if you take advantage of its features and rewards, it may be worth the outlay. In terms of rewards, you can earn 1.5 Qantas Points per $1 on your international spend, 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent in Australia up to $10,000 per statement period, and 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 thereafter.

You can also benefit from 1 additional Qantas Point per $1 spent on selected Qantas products and services, and there’s no points capping at home or overseas. Some other benefits worth mentioning include the Qantas Premier Concierge service, access to the Qantas Money app, and up to 55 days interest free on purchases.

Overall Rating

A platinum rewards card with excellent features and a great earn rate, offering 100,000 bonus points, 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 18 months and save $100 off the annual fee first year. Offer ends 3 May 2021.

I had a disputed transaction and the communication has been unacceptable. The call centres can't answer questions and in fact gave wrong information. They never called me - I have only ever called them. They send letters that are factually incorrect. I have lodged written complaint.

I was a card holder of Qantas Titanium Premier card and would suggest you NOT choose this card at all! It's with bad services when you wanted to add additional card holder and with $1200 annual fee you couldn't get the benefit meets their service fee. Just don't choose this card and they'll make a change.

For the first 12 months with this card, everything went smoothly. Unfortunately I then experienced a fraud situation (picked up quickly and replacement card sent within 2 days) so I felt confident. Sadly, that is the end of the good news. Woeful customer service, think the new card is not linked to my account, could not activate card, cannot get access to transaction data, or change pin. Call centre appears to be overseas and I question staff training. and ownership of problems. After a month of calls, still no resolution and I am sick of it. ,Terrible service for a $299 annual fee

Hi Roland, I am looking at getting the Qantas premier platinum credit card that offers 100,000 bonus points if you spend $4,000 in the first 3 months. I usually spend much more than that so that is not an issue. Is there any other catch that would make me not eligible for the bonus points. I am Qauntas FF member with silver status and have no other Qantas credit cards ( I have another CC with someone else). Cheers, Amir

    19 April 2021
    Hi Amir, there is no catch. As long as you meet the eligibility criteria for the card and the offer you'll receive the bonus points. The fine print you need to pay attention to is what is considered an eligible transaction. According to Qantas Money: Eligible transactions do not include Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, Refunds, Chargebacks and Special Promotions. I hope that helps.

    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    19 April 2021
    Hi Tracey, Qantas Money doesn't list a specific waiting period. However, for other providers the waiting period is between 12 months (eg. ANZ) - 18 months (eg. Amex). You can get in touch with Qantas Money directly if you have specific questions about your eligibility for the offer. I hope that helps.

How do I do a cash advance on the Qantas cc?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    16 March 2021
    Hi Waz, if you really need to do a cash advance on a credit card, you just use it in an ATM as if it were a debit card and request cash-out. That said, for any credit card, cash advances should only be used in an emergency. Cash advances on the Qantas Premier Platinum get charged interest at 21.99% p.a. from the day you make the withdrawal. In addition, you'll be charged a cash advance fee of $3 or 3% of the transaction amount (whichever is greater).

Hi Roland I am looking at getting the Qantas premier platinum credit card thats offers 100,000 bonus points if you spend $4,000 in the first 3 months I would be looking to use it for buying e gift cards for Woolworths, Coles ect. My monthly spend is around $1,500 would this be the best suited card for myself? The main reason for getting a credit card would be to take advantage of the bonus points and collect points on my monthly purchases, Purchasing e gift cards with a credit card is this an eligible transaction to collect frequent flyer points? Also once Ive spent $4,000 in the first 3 months to be eligible for the 100,000 bonus points and they have been transferred into my qantas frequent flyer card am i able to close this card and get another credit card that has a lower yearly fee? Also would i get a portion of the $199 annual fee back, or once it's payed regardless of how long you have it for you will not be re-imbursed. Thanks look forward to hearing from you
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    15 February 2021
    Hi Jody, Thank you for your question. Typically you would not earn points for buying gift cards - this is because they're considered cash advance transactions, and therefore ineligible to earn points. These transactions also don't count towards the $4,000 minimum spend to get the bonus points. If you make the $4,000 spend on eligible transactions (so not Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, Refunds, Chargebacks or Special Promotions), the bonus points should land in your frequent flyer account within 6-8 weeks. After that, you are free to close the card and apply for another one - you will not be reimbursed any part of the annual fee. However, it's important to note that every time you apply for a credit card (or any form of credit), it leaves an enquiry on your credit file. If you have too many of these enquiries, it will likely make it difficult for you to access additional credit.

On the list comparing all FF cards its says this card provides 160,000 points however when you click through to more information and to the Qantas website there is only every mention of 100,000 points - how many points do you actually get from this card?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    13 January 2021
    Hi Michael, in the list that we display. If you look above the list. There is a slider for your monthly spend. This defaults to $5,000 a month. If you spend that a month over 12 months, that is 60,000 points. This adding with the bonus points equals the 160,000 points you would earn over 12 months.

    Roland

    11 January 2021
    Hi Martin, here is from the terms what are not eligible. Eligible transactions do not include Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, Refunds, Chargebacks and Special Promotions. Bonus Qantas Points will ordinarily be credited within 6 - 8 weeks of meeting the spend criteria.

Can you balance transfer from a citi CC to a Qantas Premier Platinum?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    30 November 2020
    Hi Tony, no you cannot. Citi issues the Qantas Money credit cards. A balance transfer must be between different banks. You will need to look outside of Citi issued cards. Have a look at some non-Citi offers here - https://www.creditcard.com.au/low-balance-transfer-credit-cards/. How much are you looking to transfer?

    Hi Francis, yes you can apply and be eligible for the bonus points. Being a secondary cardholder does not make the bonus points invalid.

    Hi Janeen, the earn points for the secondary card holder are the same as the primary. The points limits in place would affect both card holders. Reach out with any further queries.

Hi, I am looking at applying for this card and doing a balance transfer from existing cards. I usually spend aroun1-$2000 a month on my credit card. Is this card appropriate, or do I not spend enough?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    3 September 2020
    Hi Sam, at a regular $299 annual fee. This may be too much for your spend. Though the balance transfer offer is good. You will need to make sure you pay off your new purchases ASAP to avoid interest. Typically you get no interest free days on new purchases when you run a balance transfer. Bottom line - I would suggest the HSBC Platinum Qantas for your amount of spend. It has a lower balance transfer period but still 0% for 12 months.

    Hi Arthur, not with this credit card. AMEX cards seem to be the only ones that you earn points on with the ATO. Though you need to review if there is any surcharge that would outweigh the points benefit.

    Hi Suzanne, no, you will not earn points with the ATO on this card. I think only AMEX cards earn points for this type of spend though I am sure this is in review right now.

    Roland

    4 May 2020
    Hi Michael, Have a look at this PDF - https://assets.qantasmoney.com/legals/qmoney/documents/Premier_Reward_Terms.pdf. Eligible Transaction means any purchase excluding (but not limited to) Cash Advances, Balance Transfers, Special Promotions, BPAY payments, purchases of foreign currency and travellers cheques, transactions made in operating a business, payments to other Citi accounts, bank fees and charges such as interest and ATM charges, transactions made using Qantas Points and government related transactions. Government related transactions include transactions with government or semi-government entities, or relating to services provided by or in connection with government (for example but not limited to transactions made at Australia Post, payments to the Australian Taxation Office, council rates, motor registries, tolls, parking stations and meters, fares on public transport, fines and court related costs). Please note that whether or not a transaction is an Eligible Transaction will be determined based on information provided either by the merchant or the relevant financial institution (including information about the type of business conducted by the merchant). This means that, for example, spend with certain merchants may be characterised as spend with a government related entity or an investment in shares, and therefore not an Eligible Transaction, even if that merchant or transaction is not in fact a government related entity or an investment company.
