You will enjoy one domestic economy return flight with Qantas, every year, for travel to selected Australian Capital cities. Whether you are flying between Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide or Brisbane, Qantas offer a range of flights from these destinations. And there are no additional Government and airport taxes and charges for you to pay for the flight.
Amex moved the goal posts in June this year and took Sydney to Perth out of the equation, but I think they still offer Perth to Sydney ??. So for the $200 extra you pay for the Plat card you can probably get a cheaper return flight between cities on the east coast in any event. I signed up for Plat card in May 2006 and because I had the card before they changed the rules I am still entitled to SYDPER flight which I have booked for May next year, and then I will revert back to a rewards maximiser.
I did get a letter from them a few months ago about the changes, and its effect on Perth! Being from Perth, it didn't affect me so much at the time. What is different now is that the advertsing material only lists four cities, I certainly don't recall it being written in that way before.
In the terms and conditions there are still flights listed as available from Perth (and Darwin and Hobart and Canberra), it is the marketing spiel that seems to have changed a bit. Not sure why.
Hmm - just comparing that to what I currently have - a standard Amex Gold Chrage Card. I pay about $260 per year for my card and mrssimongr - this is an extra $135 for 1.5 points - not actually a bad idea...
