Mozo snapshot

There’s a special sort of satisfaction in making a purchase with plastic and knowing that you’re racking up points towards a reward. BankSA Amplify Signature is a rewards credit card that lets you start off your points earning strong, with  bonus points offers on both its Amplify Rewards and Qantas Frequent Flyer options. On top of the rewards earned through points, the card comes with perks like free extended warranty, fraud protection and travel insurance.

Key features

Have you ever thought to yourself, I wish there was a way to snag some great perks and rewards while I spend? Well, good news - BankSA’s Amplify Signature comes with a bunch of great extras, and some serious points earning power.

You’ll be given the option to choose between two rewards programs when it comes to everyday points earning. The first is Amplify Rewards, which offers 1.5 points per $1 spent, letting you earn rewards that little bit easier. The second is Qantas Frequent Flyer, which lets you funnel all your points directly into your Frequent Flyer Account. While you’ll only earn 0.75 points per $1 spent towards the BankSA rewards, you’ll earn double points when you spend with Qantas Frequent Flyer Program partners.

Plus, if you opt for the Qantas Frequent Flyer program instead, if you spend $6,000 on eligible purchases in the first 90 days from approval you'll earn yourself 90,000 bonus Qantas points. That could get you a one way ticket to Europe, or more than a few domestic flights! Just remember that this offer expires on 9 February 2021, so you'll need to be quick!

On the other hand, if you choose the Amplify Rewards option and spend $12,000 on eligible purchases in the first year you can score a whopping 130,000 Amplify bonus points. Plus, spend another $12,000 in the second year, and you could score another 70,000 bonus points (offer ends 9 February 2021). You’ll be able to redeem points for hundreds of wide ranging rewards, such as headphones, wallets and even shaving equipment. 

The BankSA Amplify Signature credit card also comes with a bunch of perks, like 2 yearly Priority Passes to airport lounges, complimentary travel insurance, extended warranty on purchase and a bunch of other travel and retail perks.

While there is a $279 annual fee to budget for, this is discounted to $139 in the first year for the Amplify Rewards option.

Who is it good for

Anyone who’s looking to snag some top rewards for all their credit card spending is suited for the Amplify Signature, and travellers wanting their points to go directly to their Qantas Frequent Flyer membership can also seriously consider it.

Any catches

There’s no real ‘gotcha’ catch with this card, it’s just worth taking note of the $279 annual fee after the first year and making sure you’ll get enough value from the rewards on offer to justify it.

How do we calculate the rewards?

To work out the "Rewards value minus fees" in our Rewards Revealer we:

  • calculate how many points you'd get each year,

  • figure out how many flights or gift cards or cashback credits you could get for those points,

  • work out what that's actually worth to you,

  • take off the annual fee you'd pay.

More details:

  • Our calculations are designed to help you compare the value of different rewards schemes. To do this, we've looked at earning a one-way Sydney-Melbourne flight excluding taxes and charges, a return Sydney-London flight excluding taxes and charges, a $100 shopping Gift Card and $100 cashback. Most cards will also offer other rewards, which may be worth more or less than the ones we've shown.

  • We have made no allowance for bonus points for using your card at specific merchants, introductory offers or special offers. We have not assigned any value to instant discounts, insurances, ticketing and concierge services or other such benefits.

  • Rewards value calculations do not take credit card interest into account. If you do not pay off your card each month you may be better off looking for a card based on interest rates than on the value of rewards.

  • In products that have more than one card, a different mix of spend between American Express / Visa / Mastercard will give different results. Mozo's Rewards Revealer lets you choose the mix based on the way you would use such a product, and gives you tailored results.

  • We assume flights purchased with airline points are 'classic' or 'reward' economy seats with restricted seat availability. 'Any seat' rewards will probably cost more.

  • To compare the value of flight rewards, we sample online retail flight prices once a quarter based on the average price on a Wednesday 3 months in advance but outside NSW school holidays. For domestic flights we take the lowest available fare from each flight on that day from Qantas Red e-deal, Virgin Australia Saver including baggage and Jetstar Starter including baggage. We calculate the average price excluding taxes and surcharges for each airline, and also the average across all airlines (which we use when rewards are travel agent vouchers). For international flights, we take the lowest available fares on that same Wednesday from each of Qantas, Emirates, Malaysian, Etihad, Singapore, Cathay Pacific and Thai, assuming a return flight 2 weeks later, calculate the average price before taxes and surcharges and use this as our assumed cost of a flight on any airline.

  • Shopping rewards are based on $100 gift cards from a major national department store.

  • We make every effort to ensure our calculations are correct and up to date but make no guarantees.
