Qantas launches Dr. Seuss’s poem inspired campaign “Oh, the places you’ll go! for their impressive new Premier Mastercard. Applications are now open.
“There is such a strong emotional connection with the Qantas brand, and given credit card spend by nature is transactional, this campaign has given us a platform to connect those two things and show people all the places they can go with their bonus Qantas Points upon sign-up, and the points they build when they use their card every day.” said Qantas chief marketing officer, Stephanie Tully.
While some perks like the uncapped points potential may seem appealing, the tiered earned rates may still apply to heavy spenders. Cardholders, however, can earn points every day, either at home or overseas. Additionally, when cardholders spend $3,000 within 90 days from the application approval, 60,000 bonus Qantas Points will be awarded.
ANNUAL FEES, INTEREST RATES & CHARGES
At the moment Qantas has a special offer where cardholders will pay a reduced annual fee of $149 for the first year and in subsequent years will pay an annual fee of $299. Qantas Premier Mastercard is the first credit card from Qantas Money which was designed with Qantas Frequent Flyer members in mind – to reward them.
Then, there’s also a 3% international transaction fee and a minimum credit limit of $6,000.
More information on interest rates for retail purchase, cash advance rate and interest-free period can be found here.
There’s also a 6 month interest-free on any first purchases from Qantas flight tickets and Qantas memberships. With every purchase, cardholders could earn up to 2 Qantas Points for every $1 spent. This applies to any Qantas EpiQure wine purchases, Qantas store, and Qantas Gift Vouchers.
On the downside, there are several transactions that are excluded from earning points. To name the specifics, government or government-related transactions including transactions via the Australian Post, Australian Taxation Office, tolls, parking, public transport fares, fines and other court-related costs, will not earn points. This business operation transaction won’t earn cardholders points either.
Fortunately, cardholders can look forward to a 0% balance transfer for 15 months. It’s currently an offer that will last for any application before 31st August 2017. Once the introductory period is over, any balance remaining from the balance transfer will incur a standard cash advance rate at 2.99% per annum.
