Mozo Review   St.George Amplify Platinum Review

Last updated: 14 September 2018.

What's hot:
  • 50,000 bonus points if you spend $2,000 in the first 90 days

  • Perks like concierge service, free travel insurance and extended warranty

  • 1 point for every $1 spent

What's not:
  • 3% foreign exchange margin

Mozo snapshot:

If you’re a big spender who uses plastic all the time, then why not have a card that rewards you for doing so? The St.George Amplify Platinum comes with the chance to earn 1 point per $1 spent, plus it also has some neat features like extended warranty, purchase protection, a free additional cardholder and the ability to pay through Samsung Pay.

Key features:

The St.George Amplify Platinum credit card has two different version that change where your rewards points go. The Qantas Frequent Flyer option lets you link your rewards earning to your Qantas Frequent Flyer program, allowing for more streamlined points earning if you know you’ll be putting all your points towards travel.

The other is the Amplify Rewards option, which helps you earn rewards faster and will let you claim rewards through St.George rewards program.These points can be used to redeem a wide range of rewards from wallets, to headphones, to suit cases to much more.

The St.George Amplify Platinum gives you the option to jump straight in  and kick off your points stash: if you spend $2,000 on the card in the first 90 days, you’ll snag 50,000 bonus points.

Beyond the rewards, the card comes with some other premium perks, such as complimentary travel insurance, extended warranty on products and extra purchase protection.

If you’re someone that uses Samsung Pay to pay bills or make purchases, you’ll be glad to know you can link the card to your account.

To finish off, if you want to share the card with someone like a significant other, you’ll be able get a free additional card holder on the account.

Who it's good for:

Spenders who want that little bit extra from their card purchases may find the St.George Amplify Platinum is just the ticket, with rewards points and premium perks on offer.

Any catches?

There’s no major catches, but the 3% foreign exchange margin will make online purchases from overseas, or purchases made when travelling internationally a tad more expensive.

And, as with most rewards cards, there’s a relatively steep $99 annual fee which could put a ding in your budget so make sure you plan for that cost.

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.
