Mozo snapshot

The NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card is great for travellers looking to really get those extra rewards out of their spending. The $1 to 1 point for the first $5,000 and $1 to 0.5 points for the next $20,000 each months means big spenders can potentially be racking up a quality 15,000 per month. Plus if you spend $3,000 in the first 60 days and keep your card open for over 12 months, you could be eligible to get an extra 110,000 Qantas Points!

Key features

Rewards are great, whether it’s the old primary school gold star or a sports trophy, getting a little extra for doing a good job is awesome. It’s the same with your spending, which is why the NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card gives you 1 Qantas point for every dollar you spend for the first $5,000 and 0.5 points for the next $20,000. This allows you to grab a bunch of the gift cards and flights on offer.

If you want to jump right in and get that quick start on your rewards earning then you’ll be excited to know you can get an extra 110,000 bonus points, by spending $3,000 on everyday purchases within 60 days of the account opening and keeping the account open for more than 12 months.

When it comes to other premium perks, frequent travellers who prefer flying Qantas are in luck. Along with a free membership to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, cardholders get to enjoy a range of free insurance covers, including a concierge service.

Also, if you are interested in sharing the card with your partner then you’re in luck because the NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card allows an additional cardholder for free.

The card comes with a regular interest rate of 19.99% p.a. but if you’re looking to blast some existing debt, you can start with a balance transfer rate of 0% p.a. for the first 6 months (2% balance transfer fee applies), with a revert rate of 21.74% p.a. One thing to keep an eye on is the relatively high $395 annual fee, but the good news is, this is discounted to $295 in the first year.

Who is it good for

For big spenders who are looking for rewards geared towards travellers, the NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card could provide a great opportunity to really rack up a lot points and a lot of rewards.

Any catches

Although there's a discounted annual fee in the first year, the high $295 annual fee after that means you’ll be paying quite a bit each year to have access to the rewards provided by the NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card so weigh up whether you’ll get enough use from the rewards program to justify the price tag.

How do we calculate these points?
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.
