Transferring Reward Points: Credit Cards From Suncorp

Last updated

Pauline Hatch      

Credit card reward programs can be lucrative but confusing, especially if you want to transfer points to a frequent flyer program.

Many credit card providers, including ANZ, the Commonwealth Bank and Suncorp have their own rewards program so that cardholders can choose from a wide range of redemption options.

Unfortunately, these kinds of cards aren’t favoured by people planning to use points for flights, especially not with so many frequent flyer reward cards available.

But Suncorp is one credit card provider that is bridging the gap between general and frequent flyer cards, giving reward cardholders the opportunity to transfer points to the Singapore Airline’s KrisFlyer rewards or Virgin’s Velocity Rewards program.

With a Suncorp rewards card on hand people can earn 1.25 points per $1 on most purchases and make redemptions as often as you like for a Reward that suits you.

Suncorp also makes it easier to earn points by allowing people to set up automatic bill payments from their card, so if you had $250 worth of bills in a month you would earn 250 points by simply paying for necessities.

To transfer these reward points to a frequent flyer program, cardholders will need to follow the steps below:

  1. Log onto the Suncorp Internet Banking site
  2. Select the credit card account
  3. Check the points balance
  4. Choose the “redeem” option; and
  5. Select the redemption partner you would like to transfer points to

For people who want to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points, the benefit is that platinum cardholders will be able to earn 0.5 Frequent Flyer points per $1 spent.

Flybuys, on the other hand, offers a lower rate when using the points transfer option, with 1.33 Suncorp Rewards points equalling one flybuys point.

The variety of rewards and redemption’s available can make credit cards with provider rewards a lot more appealing than specific frequent flyer cards, but if airline points are something being considered it is good to look into different point transfer methods.

With a Suncorp rewards card on hand it should be easy for anyone to get as much value out of rewards as possible and save up for flights or everyday rewards whenever they want.

    Hi Les, you’re actually on Creditcard.com.au, Australia’s leading credit card comparison site. You sure can redeem your points for gift cards, travel, merchandise, cashback, etc. It looks like the Suncorp rewards site is back up and running.

    Hi Pamela, we are currently not partnered on the Suncorp Clear Options Platinum card but I checked this for you and it states that you can transfer points to Skywards Miles, flybuys points, KrisFlyer Miles and Velocity Points. You could technically transfer them to Skywards Miles and then use them to redeem for Qantas flights.

    Hi Margaret, you’ll have to jump over to the Suncorp Bank Rewards shop, where you can browse to the eVoucers section. Scroll through to the last page and you’ll see “The Good Guys”. You can choose from a $50, $100, $200 or $500 eVoucher. A $50 voucher starts at 10,500 points. Happy shopping!

    Hi Merzeen, thank you for writing. If you do have a Suncorp rewards points, you can definitely transfer some or all to flybuys points. To do this, you need to sign on to the bank's site, then click on Select Travel, then Points Transfer and choose flybuys. Hope this helps!
