The Suncorp Clear Options Platinum Credit Card

Looking for some nice, clear options when choosing your next credit card? How about the Suncorp Clear Options Platinum Credit Card? Okay, bad joke. Seriously though, this is a pretty decent card, with pretty decent intro offers on the table.

Yep, with this card, you can enjoy 120,000 bonus Suncorp Credit Card Rewards Points when you spend $3,000 on eligible transactions in the first 90 days from approval, and 0% p.a. for 9 months on balance transfers. Not bad at all.

The chunk of bonus points this card offers can be redeemed for flights, accommodation, and exciting products at partner stores, making it a suitable option if you are planning to go on a trip or simply looking to boost your points balance.

If you have an existing card debt, taking advantage of the 0% balance transfer intro offer can help you clear your balance faster.

This card also offers a very workable rewards program and some very nice features. Want to find out more? Let’s get into it.

What we love…

So we’ve covered the intro offer, now let’s look at what else this card provides. This is a platinum rewards card. That means it offers some handy platinum perks, as well as a rewards program with a respectable earn rate.

If you opt for the Suncorp Bank Rewards Program, you can earn 1.25 Suncorp Rewards Points for every $1 spent on the card. This can be redeemed for travel, merchandise, gift cards and more. Alternatively, you could choose to join the Suncorp Bank Qantas Frequent Flyer program, where you would earn 0.5 Qantas Points for every $1 spent.

On to the platinum perks. You will usually notice certain similarities between platinum cards and their perks. Platinum cardholders have come to expect certain niceties, don’t you know. This platinum card, like many others, offers a range of complimentary insurances.

In terms of travel cover, cardholders can enjoy the peace of mind from having international travel insurance, transit accident insurance and interstate flight inconvenience insurance. Purchases are also covered, under the card’s guaranteed pricing scheme and purchase cover.

Anything else in the way of platinum extras? Cardholders can benefit from the services of a personal concierge, available 24/7. There are also special offers and discounts to be had, offering exclusive tickets to sporting, music and theatre events, dinner and travel packages, sightseeing tours and more.

What’s not so great…

No one likes being a downer, but here goes. The purchase rate like most rewards cards, is high at 20.74% p.a.

You’ll also have to pay $49 per year if you choose to earn rewards on the Suncorp Bank Qantas Frequent Flyer program.

Why should you choose this card?

If you’re looking for a decent rewards card with some very nice platinum features, this card may well be for you. You can earn points as you spend, plus you can have up to four free additional cardholders helping you accumulate points. If you need a higher than average credit limit, you may get approved for up to $30,000 on this card, and if you need it, you can enjoy up to 55 days interest free on retail purchases.

Overall Rating

Nice rewards card with a respectable earn rate, some very pleasant extras and a suitably lovely bonus introductory offers.

    Hello Matthew, it turns out that the Suncorp Clear Options Platinum card does not offer Google Pay. It only has Visa payWave as the contactless payment feature. If Google Pay is a must for you, you can start comparing a range of credit cards with Google Pay.

I have 200,00 points on this card. Now I can't buy flights through Suncorp. Can I transfer them to the Suncorp Qantas Frequent Flyer Program? Is this the best way to redeem my points for flights?
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    22 August 2022
    Hi Pam, thanks for reaching out again. You can transfer Suncorp points to Skywards Miles, flybuys points, KrisFlyer Miles and Velocity Points. Unfortunately, Suncorp doesn't currently have a partnership with Qantas. If you want to see all your options for your points, you will need to login to your account.

i wrote the wrong card and in fact it is the Westpac Altitude Black card and the fees are now $250 a year which includes my Qantas frequent flyers fee..I am also looking at the HSBC card which is around $125 a year includes 2 lounge passes insurance and Qantas points

    7 January 2022
    Hi there, you’re not wrong. The HSBC platinum has a great balance transfer offer and annual fee offer running right now, with the insurances and lounge passes. You can read our review of the card here. Let us know what card you decide on!

i am tired of trying to compare cards. I have a black Earth Mastercard but fail to see the $200 a year fees with this card. I have never been able to get my lounge passes and have been with this card for over 10 years.how would you compare the westpac blackearh master card with the suncorp visa?
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    6 January 2022
    Hi there! As you probably know, the earth black card is no longer available from Westpac. The Suncorp card doesn’t offer lounge passes, and has a similar annual fee with a range of insurances. The added insurances are great if you use them, but if you’re after lounge passes, check out our comparison tables. You can sort by annual fee and then read our expert review to find out more.

    25 November 2020
    Hi Carole, I assume that you should be able to switch at any time. They will just look to charge you the additional $49 annual fee for this program. Make sure you have your Qantas Membership number ready. I would give them a call to discuss if you are keen 13 11 55

    Roland

    4 September 2020
    Hi Travis, Suncorp cards are issued through Citi. Citi just recently added Apple Pay functionality for their range of cards. I assume that it will come to Suncorp. Though it may be some time before it does. If this is an important feature. Then it may be worth changing to a credit card that is Apple Pay supported. Some cards are listed here - https://www.creditcard.com.au/apple-pay-credit-cards/

Hi. I am looking at options for a 0% credit card. We will have the money after tax time to pay it off but wanting to know a rough monthly repayment until then. Is there a calculators? Thanks.
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    21 May 2020
    Hi Brodie, the Bendigo Bank low rate is a good 0% on purchase card offer. You always have to make minimum repayments on credit cards. This particular offer would require a 3% monthly repayment. So if you owed $10,000. It would be $300 required to service this amount. What I like about this offer as well. Post the 0% period any unpaid amount reverts to 11.99% rather than the Suncorp that reverts to 21.99% p.a. Though if you can pay it off then this is no problem. With Suncorp you have to pay a minimum of 2.5%. So this would be $250 a month on a $10,000 balance.
