The must-read guide to BankSA Amplify Rewards

 

On the hunt for cool rewards like a swimming session with dolphins, or looking to give back to the less fortunate? BankSA Amplify Rewards may be just the credit card program you’re looking for.

BankSA Amplify Rewards is a credit card loyalty program for BankSA cardholders, where they can earn and redeem points earned on their rewards credit card for freebies including free movie tickets, flights, household items, gift cards and even opportunities to donate to a charity. So if you’re someone who loves being rewarded for spending, this could be a program to hop on board with. 

Depending on which BankSA Amplify credit card you’re using, you could be earning anywhere from 1 to 1.5 points per dollar spent, without any fear of those points expiring or hitting a cap. 

Credit cards to earn points with BankSA

There are three BankSA cards eligible for Amplify Rewards and if you’re a travel lover, there are also cards available that link directly to the Qantas Frequent Flyer Program.

Types of rewards available with the BankSA Amplify Rewards Program

Whether you’re obsessed with travel or love to cook, BankSA Amplify Rewards offers a wide range of rewards and experiences, including: 

  • Entertainment - Perks include free movie tickets and magazine subscriptions, and for the more adventurous, you’ll also have the opportunity to join a coffee making barista course, enjoy a massage, or swim with seals and dolphins. 
  • Travel - With BankSA Amplify Rewards, you’ll be able to book flights, hotels, car hire and activities, or create your own travel packages. If you’re already a member of an airline loyalty program participating in Amplify, you can also convert your points to airline loyalty program points for extra travel perks (transfer limits apply) - but keep in mind you’ll have to earn at least 3,000 Amplify Points first!
  • Shopping - Want a new set of bedsheets or thinking of upgrading your kitchenware? BankSA Amplify Rewards offers a variety of items for your home, as well as fashion and beauty buys, and tech gear like computers, cameras and phones. 
  • 40,000 points & under - Aren’t much of a big spender but still want the rewards? Products like power banks, headphones and slow cookers can all be claimed for under 40,000 points. 
  • Gift cards & donations - For the undecided or those hoping to give back, Amplify Points can be redeemed for gift cards, to pay the annual fee on your BankSA credit card or you can even choose a charity, like Oxfam or the Cancer Council, to donate money to. 

How you can earn rewards points with your spending

Spend and don’t stop spending! You’ll earn points for eligible spends charged to your BankSA credit card, and the number of points you earn per $1 spent will depend on which card you have: 

If you’re especially keen to accrue points, keep an eye out for special promotions that pop up from time to time. With the BankSA Amplify Rewards program, you can often score bonus points when you first sign up for a card, or by meeting a minimum spend criteria in the first couple of years. There’s no limit to how many bonus points you can earn in any statement cycle. 

Redeeming BankSA points for rewards

To redeem your points, all you have to do is head online and login to your Amplify Rewards account to shop and redeem online, or pick up the phone between 8am-8pm on Mondays to Fridays (excluding National Public Holidays) and give the Amplify Rewards centre a call on 1300 490 641 for Amplify Classic and Platinum, or 1300 851 342 for Amplify Signature. 

BankSA Amplify Rewards also offers Variable Points Plus Pay, which lets you choose how many points you want to use to redeem a reward. This means you can split the cost between your points and payment from your credit card. 

Gift cards and vouchers should arrive within 5 business days, and products within 10 business days. If you’re converting your Amplify Rewards points into Airline Miles or Frequent Flyer points, the processing time should take up to 3 business days.
