  • What criteria do I need to meet to get a platinum rewards card?

    Platinum rewards cards are high end cards they are not available to everyone. You will need to be over 18 years, have a near perfect credit rating and also earning above a certain annual income, usually $50,000 or more.

  • Are the rewards progams better with platinum credit cards?

    Yes. Generally platinum cards have accelerated points-per-dollar deals which mean that for every dollar you spend on the card you receive more rewards points. Many platinum cards also have exclusive deals for dining and travel, as well as concierge services.

    Platinum rewards cards often do not have caps on the number of points, nor do points expire. Check out our guide platinum cards - the inside story.
