Qantas has launched a credit card that offers Qantas First Class Lounge access, status credits, flight discounts and potentially enough Qantas Points for a business class flight from Sydney to London upon sign up.
The Qantas Premier Titanium MasterCard also offers the highest Qantas Points earn rate and the highest number of sign-up bonus Qantas Points of any MasterCard credit card currently in market.
The card, cut from metal, offers a range of benefits including:
Two Qantas First Lounge Invitations and two lounge Invitations for the Qantas Club Domestic and selected International Business Lounges;
20% bonus Status Credits on Qantas flights;
10% discount on Qantas operated flights for up to two bookings per year for two people on all fare classes (both international and domestic);
150,000 bonus Qantas Points when you spend $5,000 within 90 days of card approval; and
- Two Qantas Points per $1 spent overseas, up to 1.25 Qantas Points in Australia and extra points when spending with Qantas.
Qantas Loyalty CEO, Olivia Wirth, said, “We started our loyalty program for frequent flyers, but as the number of partners has grown it’s actually frequent buyers who are now earning the most points. The top 1,000 points balances are held by members who have maximised their points earn on everyday spend, with our partners like Woolworths and Red Energy or by using Qantas Points-earning credit cards. The expansion of the program means you can earn points buying wine or buying a car, so the potential for larger balances without flying is huge. In the past 12 months, one member earned more than 30 million Qantas Points on credit card spend. That’s equivalent of over 100 round the world trips in business class.”
The Qantas Premier Titanium card complements the existing Qantas Money credit cards – Qantas Premier Platinum and Qantas Premier Everyday – which both launched in 2017. However, with an annual fee of $1,200 and minimum annual income requirement of $200,000, Qantas Premier Titanium is Qantas’ most exclusive card.
Ms Wirth said, “We’re seeing more and more of our members with points balances in the millions through strategic credit card use and leveraging program partners. The Qantas Premier Titanium card will help boost their points potential and deliver a more rewarding Qantas experience. It comes with a significant annual fee, but has significant benefits.”
