Mozo Review   Jetstar Platinum Mastercard Review

Last updated: 22 May 2018.

What's hot:
  • Mozo Experts Choice Awards Winner 2017

  • 0% balance transfer for the first 14 months

What's not:
  • Flight vouchers expire after 3 months (Jetstar Dollars program)

Mozo snapshot:

The Jetstar Platinum MasterCard is one of the best domestic flight rewards cards on the market and winner of a 2017 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Best Premium Rewards Credit Card. Cardholders can choose from either the Qantas Frequent Flyer or Jetstar Dollars rewards programs, plus they'll be able to take advantage of the 0% balance transfer offer for the first 14 months. 

Key features:

The Jetstar Platinum card comes with standard platinum credit card features like travel accident insurance, extended warranty, purchase protection and you'll also get access to the exclusive MasterCard Moments program. Keep in mind that for all this value, you'll be up for an annual fee of $169.

The card also has an enticing 0% balance transfer for 14 months helping you save hundreds of dollars in interest by consolidating your debt. 

When you pay for your Jetstar flight online with your Jetstar Platinum MasterCard you will not pay a booking fee or service fee.

Jetstar Dollars

With the Jetstar Dollar program, you can earn 1 Jetstar Dollar per $50 spent for the first $2,500 you spend in a month, and 1 Jetstar Dollar per $100 spent after that, capped at 2,000 Jetstar dollars per year.

Qantas Frequent Flyer Program

You can opt to have your points credited toward the Qantas Frequent Flyer Program with the Jetstar Platinum card. You'll earn 0.5 Qantas Points for every dollar spent, uncapped. Points are automatically credited to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account and if you're not already a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, you'll get a complimentary membership valued at $89.50.

Who it's good for:

If domestic travels are a regular part of your life and you don't mind flying with Jetstar, this is the credit card to do it with.

Any catches?

You can use Jetstar points for domestic and international flights but just watch the expiry date on those vouchers. You need to book flights within 3 months of receiving the voucher and then fly out within 6 months. And be sure to set up those automatic repayments before you jetset off, there is a hefty $35 late repayment fee.

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.

    Absolutely disgusting! I was waiting for my credit card statement from Jetstar and to my disgust I received a late fee of $35 and interest charges. I have never paid my credit card late! How can I pay trendier card without the statement (and it's my first statement). Obviously this is the way they gorge fees out of people illegally. I will be contacting the ACCC.

    Only good if you pay in full every month!

    It offers 55 days interest free but if you don't pay off the entire amount each month then interest is payable on the entire amount rather than just the amount that is not paid. I paid off $5000 on purchases of $5200 and discovered that I had to pay interest on $5200 rather than $200. Not a happy chappy! Then the overseas call centre was difficult to deal with!
