    Surely they have started to clamp down on people signing up for 11 months just for the points.

    There must be a catch

    Huh free virgin flight?

    Probably should add need to book and fly a Qantas return flight to get SCs

    "Buy and fly return with Qantas by 31 January 2018."

    • +1 vote

      Yes that is a drawback!

      Maybe someone can confirm receipt of point before Jan 2018?

      Or do they grab the points back off you if you don't fly?

      •  

        You have to fly first. I've booked a flight in a few weeks and expect the SCs to hit within a month or two after that.
        Just received my 75k points though

    •  

      So you need to book and pay using this card? Cos when I fly for work, I have to put flights on the work card…

    And as usually:

    Not available in conjunction with other offers, packages or promotions, or when transferring from an existing ANZ credit card or where you currently hold or have closed an ANZ Frequent Flyer, ANZ Frequent Flyer Gold, ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum or ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit card within the previous twelve months.

        Hasn't flown Qantas before either given that comment…

          Rarely fly….but have slowly accumulated 400k+ Qantas points…..
          Don't know anything about status points though. Something I need to learn? Kindly share in summarized form….instead of negging my comment.
          I am sure there are people too who doesn't know what it is.

          And yes….I am on Centrelink. And no I earn 75k+…..ooops.

          @lovepub:

          Status credits are a means to an end. The end allows you access to the qantas/OW parnters lounge for free (and other perks). You generally can only get them by flying. Achieving GOLD QFF requires flying 17.5 times return from Perth to Sydney on discount economy within a 12 month period.

        •  

          @lovepub: That is what Google is for… or visiting the QFF website.

          @hypie:

          You get 20 status points for a red edeal fare and 40 for a flexible fare.

          So 60 for a trip. Plus you get a bonus 50 points for every 300 you accumulate.

          Therefore, 10 flights and your sorted!

          You do tend to lose the will to fly after that though 😋

        •  

          @kermit3169:

          Yeah my work uses a booking flight agency (no idea why), so every flight is basically a red-edeal 20+20. You get 50 points every 500 you accumulate, not every 300. Sad times.

      no harm to try

    •  

      Every time you physically fly you get status credits. The amount u get is determined by distance and class of fare. 75 is pretty generous, but won't get you anything with the 75 on its own. But might be enough to get someone Qf lounge entry, so appeals to some.

    Without Amex, it is no longer attractive, as the Amex used to give 2 free lounge access

    •  

      Can't agree more

    • +2 votes

      You do get 2x Qantas lounge passes with this though. (I signed up last month)

    •  

      Have another look and you do get two passes with this card - "Get two complimentary Qantas Club lounge invitations 2 each year for use when flying on Qantas or Jetstar"

      •  

        You also get access to various lounges around the world for free (unlimited). Which is fairly impressive. Some of these places cost around $30 per visit.

      Only relevant if you fly international out of Sydney.

      •  

        I don't know how accurate this is…

    •  

      The main benefit when these deals come up are the bonus points. The lounge passes and other perks are just bonuses to the bonus points..

      no longer attractive

      I'd agree with less attractive, but not no longer attractive.

      And as JohnHowardsEyebrows above me said, only relevant for if you're flying internationally out of Sydney (Melbourne to be added soon, apparently).

    I applied for this card last year and called to cancel it due to the axing of Amex card. I asked if they can waive the annual fee, they refused but reduced the annual fee to $147

    •  

      when did you cancel at the 11th month?

      •  

        at the 9th month when I got the letter from ANZ informing that my Amex card will no longer be valid after 05/08.

    • +1 vote

      $147 for 2 Qf lounge Passes, 1 pt/$ earn is not really worth it. Although their travel insurance product is good (if u have some travel coming up might make it worth it) but their lack of Amex offers is now a no Deal for me. I'm currently in the 12 month limbo.

  •  

    Got mine just a couple of days ago. Took 48 hours to get an approval. It was an easy process. They need you to submit your payslips.

    I got this card about 3 weeks ago and I saw 75K bonus Qantas points in to my Qantas account in the second statement of this card.

  •  

    So if I spend $2500 in 3 months I will get 75k QFF Points. The Qantas flight is not a requirement for the qff's and I will only forego the status credit and still get the 75k QFF - is my understanding correct?

  •  

    What is status credir

    • -1 vote

      google it ;)

    • +12 votes

      Everytime you apply for credit card, it creates hidden directory on your phone or computer. This directory is called credir. It contains all the information about your past credit cards, bank accounts and it's password.

      • +1 vote

        And you cannot delete this directory as well. All information is saved in a plain text file no encryption.

      • +1 vote

        Don't listen to this guy. No hidden directory is created sheesh. It's unhidden. Say to Siri "I see a little silhouetto of a man". Your welcome

    This is very tempting.

  •  

    So I ccould apply for this FF card and then the rewards card.
    But wouldn't that make my credit score go down in a short amount of time for both application?

  •  

    anybody know if this card can be bank fed on Xero (not via Yodlee)?

  •  

    75k Qantas points, 0 fee, Qantas Lounge passes, Veloce lounges (the Veloce program seems to be falling apart though), decent earn rate on non-Amex spend, Apple Pay, one of the best credit card travel insurances around - this is the card for frequent travellers to rinse and repeat every 12 months in my opinion (even though they dropped the AmEx companion card).

  •  

    What counts as an "eligible purchase"? If I use this to pay for my visa application fee ($3600+), is that counted?

  • +1 vote

    How much is 75K Qantas points worth in flights, not upgrades?

  •  

    How does credit card hopping affect you credit rating? I know it takes a small hit with each application but if you're paying in full etc are there any other negatives?

    •  

      Every credit card application will hit and reduce your credit score. You always pay due amount in time will slowly increase your score

  •  

    IF my husband applies can he book/redeem the points for a flight under my name?

  •  

    Anyone know what the BPAY code is for this CC?
