50k Velocity points for $0 in the first year is still something for nothing - and well worth it if you are chasing velocity points.

I hate this emerging trend of making you hold the card for greater than 12 months to get the maximum bonus available.
Without being too specific, in a general sense, the card account and the linked rewards program account are not the same thing. That's all.


Have any Vic or SA residents, as listed in your application, successfully received the St George branded card?
I was told that if you are in Vic, it automatically gets branded as BoM.
If in SA, Bank SA.
Only St George branded if you are in NSW.
Yes, I know they are the *same* bank.

Just after personal experiences...

Thanks for your responses.

Went to the linked St George site for this card:
Amplify Signature | St.George

Of note:
*Amplify Signature Bonus Points Offer: To be eligible to receive up to 200,000 bonus Amplify points over 2 years, you must apply and be approved for a new Amplify Signature Credit Card between 24th January and 6th March 2019. You'll receive 100,000 bonus Amplify points when you spend a minimum amount of $12,000 on eligible purchases on the credit card within the first 12 months from card approval. You'll receive an additional 100,000 bonus Amplify points in the second year of your credit account being open, if you spend a minimum of $12,000 on eligible purchases within the subsequent year. If you do not meet the minimum spend in one year, you forfeit the bonus points for that year only, however you are still eligible for bonus points in subsequent years if you meet the minimum spend in subsequent years during the promotional period. Eligible purchases do not include BPAY or BPAY equivalent transactions, fees, cash, cash equivalent transactions, refunds, balance transfers debited from the card account, government fees and ATO payments. Existing customers who currently hold a Amplify Platinum or Amplify Signature card issued by St.George, Bank of Melbourne or BankSA, or who have held one in the last 12 months, are not eligible for this offer. The bonus points will be credited to your points balance within 12 weeks after the eligible spend criteria is met. Interest free days do not apply to credit cards with balance transfers, you'll be charged the applicable purchase rate on any spend that you make whilst you have an outstanding balance transfer.

Sure but the underlined bit is about eligibility for the bonus, not whether ATO earns points.

Check the other thread. Same card, different rewards program, likely a sign of things to come.
When has a purchase earned regular points but been deemed ineligible spend for a bonus?

Would I be correct in assuming that of all the St George Amplify Signature sign on bonus offers floating about at the moment this offer would be most lucrative bonus pts wise? (Bearing in mind $0 Ann Fee in 1st year)

My son in Madrid is the only one not onboard CE. Just too hard to sign him up while he is going travelling every few days.

Does anyone know if the 1st year bonus points will be credited shortly after hitting the $12k spend, so I can cancel the card before the second year and pay no annual fee,
OR are they credited after the end of the first year meaning that you have to pay the second year fee to get any bonus points?

I'd suspect soon after reaching the required spend, rather than at the end of the year. But the terms aren't clear on this.

Hi, I know that points have been awarded for payments to our fiscal friend but does anyone know about whether points are awarded for payments to Government agencies such as land tax and rates given the exclusion of government fees in the T & Cs?

I am in Vic and have StG card. StG who I applied to.

Had to go into a BoM to prove identity.
