The St.George Amplify Platinum Credit Card - Qantas

Offering 60,000 bonus Qantas Points to new cardholders, the St.George Amplify Platinum Credit Card is a great find. Providing cardholders an earn rate of 0.5 Qantas Points on all eligible card spending at home and overseas, the card also offers a handy selection of features, including travel insurance and extended warranty insurance.

What we love...

Doing exactly what an introductory offer is supposed to do, that 60,000 bonus Qantas Points offer can’t help but catch the eye. All you need to do to be eligible is apply and be approved by 30 September 2020, and then use the card to spend at least $2,000 on eligible purchases within 90 days of card approval.

With that bonus point offer in your pocket, you could fly from Sydney to San Francisco, from Melbourne to Vancouver, or from Brisbane to Doha, by redeeming 45,000 Qantas Points. Alternatively, you could choose to use those points at the Qantas Store, redeeming 41,250 Qantas Points for a $250 Harvey Norman gift card, or 49,050 Qantas Points for a $250 Woolworths Group gift card.

It’s worth bearing in mind that this offer is not offered to existing customers who currently hold an Amplify Platinum or Amplify Signature card issued by St.George, Bank of Melbourne or BankSA, or who have held one in the past 12 months.

As for everyday points earning, the St.George Amplify Platinum Credit Card allows you to earn 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 on eligible purchases at home and overseas. Take note, no points are earned on government spending, but you may earn extra points on purchases with Qantas Frequent Flyer Program partners. Here, you earn once with your card and once with the program partner.

With this St.George Amplify Platinum Credit Card, you are choosing to earn on the Qantas Frequent Flyer program. This allows you to earn more points on Qantas purchases, while enjoying rewards such as flights and upgrades with Qantas and its partner airlines, and more than 3,000 products, experiences and vouchers from the Qantas Store.

If you need to move over an existing credit card debt, the St.George Amplify Platinum comes with 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 6 months. This offer is for new cards only.

What’s not so great...

As with most rewards cards, the St.George Amplify Platinum Credit Card has a relatively high rate of interest on purchases and cash advances. However, you can stop this from becoming an issue as long as you avoid cash advances, and clear your balance by the due date each statement period.

Some cardholders may not be overly impressed with the card’s earn rate. For a lower annual fee, cardholders of the St.George Amplify Card enjoy the same earn rate but that entry-level card does not have the 60,000 bonus Qantas Points offer or the insurance covers that this card has. So if these features are important to you, the Platinum edition may be the best option.

Why should you choose this card?

If you want to earn rewards on Qantas purchases and everyday spending, the St.George Amplify Platinum Credit Card could be a great choice. It offers a decent points earn, with the ability to earn points faster day-to-day, with one additional cardholder at no extra cost.

The card also saves you up to $99.50, with complimentary Qantas Frequent Flyer membership. On top of that, you can benefit from complimentary travel insurance and extended warranty insurance, covering items purchased on the card up to 12 months past the standard manufacturer's warranty.

With the card’s travel insurance, you, your spouse and dependent children are provided cover on trips up to three months, as long you’ve spent at least $500 on each traveller’s travel costs, and you have a return travel ticket before leaving Australia. Cover provided included unlimited medical cover, loss or damage to personal property up to a maximum $20,000 for a family, plus travel cancellation cover, rental vehicle excess up to $5,000, and more.

Overall Rating

A handy rewards card that allows you to earn Qantas Points on Qantas purchases and everyday spending, the St.George Amplify Platinum Credit Card really sets itself apart with its 60,000 bonus Qantas Points and its complimentary insurance covers.

    Hi Rebekkah, Any Citi issued credit card can work. Have a look at the Virgin 0% balance transfer offer. This can accept non-personal loans as part or all of the balance transfer, subject to credit approval.

Gday Roland, With the minimum criteria, where it says have bot applied for multiple credit cards recently. what if i applied for 2 personal loans and was unsuccessful is that the same thing? also how recent does it mean for credit card applications? the last one i got, I think was late November 2019
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    28 February 2020
    Hi Brent, I would hold off on applying for a credit card. If you received applied for 2 personal loans and failed. This is not a good sign and may mean that the bank will auto decline you for the application. What I suggest is that you check your credit file to see if any problems. I suggest to wait 6 months after your last application before applying again. Everyone is different and has a different financial position. These are just general rules to show the banks you are not credit hungry.

Hi I started filling out the credit card details to apply for a card but there was nobody in there to tell me anything about transferring my old credit card to the St George new card does it do it automatically? I’m confused as don’t want to apply for another credit card was hoping to get rid of the hsbc credit card and start paying st George back thanks Leanne

    During the application process, there is a balance transfer section. In this section you complete the details of your HSBC credit card you want to pay off. Put in the card name - bank and amount of debt you wish to transfer. Once approved, and you activate the new offer, st George will make a payment automatically of the amount agreed to your HSBC card. Post this, if the balance is $0. You then have to manually close your old credit card.

If i previously held a BankSA credit card, would i still qualify for this offer?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    25 February 2020
    Hi Tom, checking the terms: Existing customers who currently hold an Amplify, Amplify Platinum or Amplify Signature card issued by St.George, Bank of Melbourne or BankSA, or who have held one in the last 12 months, are not eligible for this offer. Therefore its more if you held an Amplify card with BankSA within in the last 12 months.

Do you take into consideration the card I clear will close in full
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    7 February 2020
    Hi Shelly, even when you apply for a balance transfer to close another credit card. This is not compulsory. Therefore the banks will always max out all your cards (new and old). Then see if you can pay them off in 3 years. This goes with all providers. A key is to reduce any credit cards with other cards (where you can), before you apply. https://www.creditcard.com.au/creditcardapplicationtips/

Hi there, I am trying to apply for the St George amplify platinum card on your website but it is coming up with an 'internal error' message prior to the last page being submitted. I have tried to apply 4 times (yesterday and today) via different web servers with the same message. I called St George today to discuss this with their team and they mentioned that they aren't aware of this offer - balance transfer with Qantas points. Can you help? Thanks

    Hi Samantha, we have been getting a number of applications each day for this offer. Therefore people have been able to complete the online application process. Even on their website they have the bonus points and 0% balance transfer offer. Though the balance transfer offer we have available through creditcard.com.au is much longer. Sometimes the phone support staff are not up on all the offers... Totally sux that you are having issues. Let me know if you have been able to successfully submit your application now?

Hey Roland, Thanks for the write up. I'm a newbie when it comes to credit cards, but I'm interesting in getting one for the sole purpose of earning points. Is it possible to spend with this card while avoiding interest rates? I don't plan on spending any money I don't have, but I assume it's not as simple as making a purchase with my credit card and instantly paying it back. Cheers, Matt

    Hi Matt, being new, I suggest you have a go with a basic credit card course - https://www.creditcard.com.au/edu/courses. I would recommend the credit card essential course. This will give you the basics that are very important for managing your credit card better. This card is not bad but there may be better based on what you are after. How much do you think you will spend a month on the card?

    Hi Amber, all credit cards require monthly minimum payments. So you will need to always to do this, no matter which card. This offer means that you can transfer other credit card balances. Then pay no interest for the 22 months. You still make the payments even if you are not paying interest.

Re: Amplify platinum card Comprehensive travel insurance, can money paid towards travel agency's travel money cards be included with the $500 needed to qualify for free comprehensive insurance
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    8 October 2019
    Hi Maria, To be eligible for this complimentary overseas travel insurance, before leaving Australia on an overseas journey, you must have a return overseas travel ticket, and need to have prepaid at least A$500 of your travel costs using your eligible card. (i.e. costs of their return overseas travel ticket; and/or airport/departure taxes; and/or their prepaid overseas accommodation/travel; and/or their prepaid overseas itinerary items). I am struggling myself to decide whether the cash cards would be considered. I would say no. Though if you have paid for your flight tickets. Then this would go towards the $500 and should cover you anyway. If you don't have any other prepaid travel expenses. I would reach out to the insurer directly to confirm whether your travel cards would be eligible though I think not.

    21 August 2019
    Hi Denise, in the review we are talking about the base Amplify card v this offer. The base (entry level Amplify - not the platinum) card does not have the bonus points but has the same earn rate. The Amplify platinum does have the bonus points. From the review: Some cardholders may not be overly impressed with the card’s earn rate. For a lower annual fee, cardholders of the St.George Amplify Card enjoy the same earn rate. It should be noted that this entry-level card does not have the 60,000 bonus Qantas Points offer or the insurance covers, so if these features are important to you, the Platinum edition may be the best option.
