The Qantas Premier Platinum Credit Card with 80,000 Bonus Qantas Points Plus 80 Bonus Status Credits

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 80,000 bonus Qantas Points, 80 bonus Status Credits, 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. Qantas Premier Platinum is currently one of the few credit cards that offer bonus Qantas Status Credits and Qantas Points at the same time.

If you apply by 29 September 2021 for the Qantas Premier Platinum Credit Card you can get 80,000 bonus Qantas Points when you spend $4,000 or more on eligible purchases within 3 months of card approval. These 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 Sydney to New Zealand for 66,800 points, or from Adelaide to Port Macquarie for 42,800 points.

On to the bonus Status Credits. When you make an eligible purchase by 31 October 2021, 80 Status Credits will be added to your Qantas Frequent Flyer Membership Account within 6-8 weeks of making your first eligible purchase.

To help you understand how much 80 bonus Status Credits are worth, you will earn 80 status credits for a roundtrip business class flight from Melbourne to Adelaide which could cost hundreds of dollars (or more than a thousand, depending on the flights you choose). These bonus status credits can give you a headstart in climbing up to your desired status tier. The higher the tier, the more benefits you receive, and the earlier you reach a higher tier, the longer you enjoy the benefits.

However, it’s worth noting that the bonus Status Credits will not contribute towards any Loyalty Bonuses and Platinum or Platinum One Bonus Rewards. It's always good to review the fine print to be aware of all the conditions that may apply to these offers.

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 $225 - that's a saving of $74. 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. It currently offers 80,000 bonus points and 80 bonus Status Credits when you make an eligible purchase by 31 October 2021. Plus, you can enjoy 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 18 months and save $74 off the annual fee in the first year. Offer ends 29 September 2021.

For rewards this is one of the best cards, and at time time I signed up, the only card that can get you Qantas Status Credits. What's been disappointing is the lack of Google Pay. This is really hard to find in this info online, they really hide the fact they don't have it. So after months of being wallet free I now have to carry it around then thanks to this card. The card quality for a "Premier Platinum Card" it feels kind of cheap, the printing is really low quality and blurry. The app is very painful to use. I tried to activate via the app - impossible due to the app being made cheaply. Customer service is only via phone. These days I much prefer chat so I can do other things while waiting for the agent to reply. There's no email either. So I'll hang around to get my 75 status credits and bonus points, but then cancel and go back to a card with Google Pay and a decent support network.

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 Cameron, thanks for your question! We looked into this and see that per Qantas Money’s T&Cs, you can transfer up to 80% of your approved credit limit. The key point to note is the “approved credit limit” So if you’re approved for a $10,000 credit limit, you can transfer up to $8,000 from other cards.

Hi, I will get this Credit card, I am wondering if I can use the card to pay my house rent so I can easily pay the 4k requirement in the first 3 months. It seems too big for me. Thanks.

    Hi Erlan, there's no hard and fast answer to this question. It's dependant on whether your real estate takes credit card payments, and whether or not these will be charged at the cash advance rate. There are web sites such as rentalrewards.com.au that will let you check. It might be a good idea to call your real estate agent too. Hope this has helped
