I think all 3 names are now just Westpac business names so just take your pick. We went St George purely because they have one branch in Perth city whereas the other two are not in WA.
All three should have the same backend evaluation process. I found (all 3 of) them some of the harshest banks when it comes to extending credit: I have quite a decent income, no dependent, not-a-huge mortgage, not much liabilities, and pristine credit history. I got knocked back by them a couple of times, before approving my last application about a year later (with no changes in my circumstances).
St George has sent me email saying my card has been approved, and I ended up having the same Customer Access Number as I had in the past. They will send my card via mail. So no need to go to a branch for me.

Also I logged into St George and Bank SA platform using the same CAN and passwords, and could access my accounts. So on internet banking it is the same platform, but the only difference is the logo and colour background.

Hi everyone,

I am looking at this Dragon signiture visa card with 200k sign up bonus points. I plan to use it to pay Canberra payments (around 30k).
When I was reading the TC I noticed the following which is a bit of concerning. I am unsure if I'll get points if I pay Canberra payments with this card. If not can I use Yak Pay to pay Canberra and get points?

Can someone with this card shed some lights on Canberra payments and BPAY payments for bonus points eligibility?

thanks in advance guys and gals!!

^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 3rd June 2020 and 30th September 2020. You'll receive 130,000 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 70,000 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 an Amplify, Amplify Platinum or Amplify Signature card issued by Bank of Melbourne, St.George and 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.
For obvious reasons, such things are rarely discussed openly. Have a look at this thread and you should glean your answer:

Hi Arctan,

Hope all is well and that the current climate isn't treating you too badly.

We have plenty of clients paying the ATO ("Canberra") daily using their Amex, VISA or Mastercard's. Due to us pushing out our clients payments in the form of an EFT there shouldn't be an issue with you receiving the bonus point offer as depicted on the St George website. As a tid bit, the St George Amplify Signature is currently the most utilised card on YP.

Have a great rest of your day. Let me know if you have any other questions regarding this, also don't hesitate to send me a dm for further clarification.

James :)

I applied for this card today and at the end of the application was conditionally approved. ID was done on line (drivers licence, passport and medicare card). I was asked to upload income proof and am waiting for an answer.
My only concern might be the minimum income required but there was no mention in the preamble stuff so fingers crossed. I really want those bonus points for the next trip - whenever that may be.
