This offer has now changed to 65,000 points for the card applicant and 40,000 points for the referrer. There is currently no end date for the offer, but, be sure to check for other concurrent offers which may see you earn more bonus points (such as via affiliate sites or Qantas). Of course, it's a gift to a fellow AFF'er if you use a referral link, but we wouldn't want you to get anything but the best possible offer.

In the last 12 months, there have been both 100k and 120k offers (with minimum spends of $3k and $5/6k respectively), but if you are going to apply for this card and 65k is the best current offer, it would be awesome if you could use a referral link from this thread. You will then have the ability to refer friends yourself, too.

I've received this card after applying via a referral link from an earlier offer, and would be thrilled if anyone would bestow a 40k bonus upon me by clicking here and applying via my referral link.

If you apply using a referral link, are approved, and haven't held an amex-issued amex in the last 18 months, and spend $3,000 in 3 months, you receive 65,000 points. In exchange for the $450 annual fee, you receive a $450 travel credit to spend on QF-coded flights, 2 lounge passes after QF spend, access to amex cashback offers, and more.

Some things to consider when applying for this card:
  • Amex conducts a credit check after you finish page one of the application form - not after completing the whole form. So only start entering details into the form if you intend to finish it!
  • You can activate the two free Qantas Lounge passes, which are delivered to you digitally, with any spend over $1 with the 'Qantas Air Australia' merchant. Here is one very affordable way to do it that worked for me recently.
  • Flights commencing overseas, shopping at the Qantas mall, Qantas Hotels, Rental Cars etc do not activate the lounge passes.
  • The minimum credit limit is $3k - keep your application low if you're only in it for the bonus points and want to reduce the impact on your credit score!
  • Finally, unless you absolutely must - hold off on applying for supplementary cardholders at first. Amex often send out offers to give you a bonus 5k points for adding them later - so if you're a little patient you may be rewarded!
Again, would be greatly appreciative of anyone who uses my link! Would be glad to answer any questions about this card if I can assist. If my referrals are used up I'll ask a mod to remove my link.

Does the AMEX pay out the referral bonus for business cards?

The offer link implies other cards are eligible:

I've clicked through to the offer Terms and there's no mention - either exclusion or inclusion.

Has anyone tried recently?

The business version of this card with 140k points seems much more rewarding.

As far as I'm aware, it's only the three Qantas personal range cards i.e. the regular, premium or ultimate.
