Do these points also count towards the bonus points

I'll be able to confirm that .... depending on how long it takes for the 100,000 bonus to post. I blew the threshold on mrsamaroo's new card in the first transaction.... points including the current 1/$ bonus have already posted ..... just waiting on the 1st tranche of 100,000.

EDIT - oops the 1/$ offer is actually ANZ Black...

Nice! Thought it must have been targeted. Nothing for me. :(

The timing is pretty good as we're in the market to purchase # 1 son a car.... looks like he favours a Hilux with 1.2% cc fee .... at least the fee is tax deductible :p

The big Q - is 1.5 QFF better than .825 KF ?

edit - the 1/$ offer is actually ANZ Black.... they've also posted correctly LOL

Well, that's an interesting one - I'd usually say KF, but that's a BIG difference (80% more QF points) - if the routes you tend to go on have half-decent availability on QF J (for whatever numbers you travel with) and you have a stash of QF points, I'd be tempted to go with QF (of course, that could well be 'wishful thinking' re avail), as I suspect that the points difference offset fuel surcharge differences etc --- it's an availability vs value decision!

For longhauls you may be able to go QR on Qantas points.
Kris has availability.
We used 115,000 AA Miles and a similar number of Kris Miles to book SIL to London. QR was for first class and Kris was business class. I think I could have used QF points to go QR but the points and fees would have been significantly more than AA.

I got the Amplify card a few months ago and can confirm that the 100,000 bonus points was credited once I had spent $12,000. So I haven't had to wait the 12 months. And it looks like only actual purchases counted.

Yes Jessica Tam this card is a winner and your sign up was better than when we started a couple of years ago.

My experience concurs with this. Have been sidetracked with the ANZ bonus offer since getting this card. Have only pushed a few Canberra purchases through and I'm yet to receive the bonus points. The amount I've transacted via this one merchant exceeds the spend threshold by an extra 0.

Now the ANZ offer has expired the Amplify will be getting my full attention.

Hi there, just a question regarding Amplify Points vs the Qantas points option with St George. I am assuming (due to the popularity of this offer) that the amplify points can be converted to airline points fairly easily and at a good rate? I am eligible for one of these cards with my homeloan and just trying to decide which option to go for... Thanks for any advice.

I'd suggest you have a read of the original offer as indicated here via point hacks:


Transfer rate isn't great (although on par with most current offerings) and you are limited in the airlines you can transfer to.

This may also help:

JT and others how long between min spend and 100k posting?

This thread reminds me that I need to get another family member into this credit card.
