Key features

To start off, let’s cover the need-to-know basics: the NAB Rewards Platinum card comes with a 19.99% interest rate and a $195 annual fee, making it pretty affordable as far as premium rewards cards go. The cash advance rate is a little higher at 21.74%, and you’ll also pay fees for hitting the ATM as well as a foreign exchange margin.

Ok, with that out of the way, here’s what you really want to know about: the rewards. Like the NAB Rewards Classic Card, the flexible rewards program is the star of this plastic.

Points are uncapped and don’t expire, and you’ll earn 1 point for every $1 on regular spends. Not good enough? You can also pick up double points at major department and hardware stores or triple points when you spend through Webjet, or on overseas purchases. And don’t forget you can snag 60,000 bonus points when you spend $1,000 on purchases in the first 60 days of having the card.

As for redemption options, there’s plenty of variety on offer, from gift cards and retail products, through to charitable donations and flights on any airline through Webjet.

What sets this card apart from its non-platinum counterpart is the seven complimentary insurance covers on offer. These include:

 - Overseas travel insurance

 - Interstate flight insurance

 - Domestic hotel burglary insurance

 - Transport accident insurance

 - Extended warranty

 - Purchase protection

 - Price protection

So whether you’re spending at home or off on an overseas trip, this card has plenty of bonuses to tempt you.

Who is it good for

Because it comes with extra protection for your spending and travel, this platinum plastic is suited to big spenders and jetsetters who will get plenty of value from the flexible rewards program year after year, in order to justify the annual fee.

Any catches

For travellers or online shoppers, remember that while you’ll earn triple rewards points on overseas spending, you’ll also be paying a 3% foreign exchange margin that may cancel out some of that extra value.

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.

    Don't want or like "disabled" customers

    They shift my accounts to more expensive options when ever they like. They have miscalculated fee's and charges, which eventually after hours wasted in messages they begrudgingly always pay back without apology. The day before Christmas they suspended my credit card because of "suspicious activity"! This activity was me paying my usual bills registered in my name which happen every month. Besides they let the transactions go through anyway, but still froze the account within hours of closing for Xmas. Messaged to ring them when they get back from their Xmas Holidays even though I am registered as Non-Speaking. My banking is setup that I do everything through my credit card incl my business costs, so my Xmas sucked and I continued to lose income way afterwards. Was told via their secure message service (my only way to communicate with them) they would unfreeze my account, but only if I "Ring" them, as they need to hear my voice to make sure it's actually me, which they never ever have heard, as I simply can't. Told that their secure message service isn't secure even though operating directly within my account login, plus the only way they ever have communicated with me! Told it's not their problem and if I want to be treated like a "normal" customer I need to be "normal" and be able to talk! And if I wanted to make a complaint I should "RING" the complaints dept as they will not respond anymore, even though my account is still frozen!! I went through the Ombudsman who awarded a $400 payment for my discomfort and told NAB they have to charge my regular $30PA account fee instead of the new $195PA fee as I didn't ask or want the new account service they forced on me. Afterwards I received a message from NAB's top Customer Service Manager confirming this. No apology of course, but he added clause that NAB would only release the awarded funds into my account if I "RING HIM"!! So never received the payment and my account is still frozen, they still continue to charge me annual fees and won't close my account unless... Yep you guessed it " I Ring them". My guess is they insist on quadriplegics to walk into their branches and ask blind people to be able read! As I have as much chance of ever "Ringing" them. Maybe if you are "normal" and not difficult like me because of my disability, they might treat you better. But their fee's and interest rates will still be higher than most banks anyway. So why would you?

    Better deals elsewhere.

    I have banked, borrowed and had a credit card with NAB for years and they have waived the annual fee for the credit card in the previous years for my loyalty, but this year they have decided not to. Loyalty doesn't seem to matter anymore.

    Great bank to deal with. My card has been fraudulently tampered with on two occasions and NAB was very quick to find the fraud, report it to me, once when I was overseas, and remedy the situations in a quick and seamless manner.
