Good news, frequent fliers and fellow travellers! On the heels of a wildly successful points giveaway, American Express is upping the ante for new Qantas Ultimate Card Members. You’ll receive 55,000 bonus Qantas Points when you apply online, are approved and spend $3,000 on your new Card within the first three months. This offer is available to new American Express Card Members only.
If you’re big on travel and in the market for a new credit card, now is most definitely the time to take advantage of this opportunity. In addition to the introductory bonus points (which apply to new Card Members only), you’ll earn 1.25 Qantas Points for every $1 spent on Card purchases, except when you spend money at government bodies in Australia, where you’ll earn 0.5 Qantas Points for every $1 spent. There’s no cap on earn rate, meaning you’ll continue to rake in Qantas Points on every dollar spent, no matter how much you spend each month.
Get approved and you’ll also receive a $450 Qantas Travel Credit each year, which you can apply toward eligible international or domestic Qantas flights when you book and pay online at American Express Travel. That’s joined by complimentary travel protection (when you pay for travel using your American Express Card), a global customer support network, 2 American Express Airport Lounge entries each calendar year, and 2 Qantas Club lounge invitations each year.
The privilege of owning the Qantas American Express Ultimate Card will cost you $450 a year, but that number is immediately matched by the $450 travel credit. Throw in all those rewards points and other perks and this offer becomes too good to refuse, especially if you travel with relative frequency.
To be eligible for the Qantas American Express Ultimate Card, you should be able to say yes to the following:
- I have an annual income of $65,000 or more
- I have no history of bad debt or payment default
- I am aged 18 years or over
- I am an Australian citizen or permanent resident or hold a current Business Long Stay Visa (subclass 457)
Meet the above criteria and you’ll receive 55,000 bonus Qantas Points when you apply online, are approved and spend $3,000 on your new Card within the first three months. This offer is available to new American Express Card Members only.
