Who is it good for?
The Bendigo & Adelaide Bank Qantas Platinum Mastercard could be a good option for existing Bendigo & Adelaide Bank customers who are looking for a rewards credit card, so that they can earn points on their everyday transactions. The waived Qantas Frequent Flyer membership fee could also serve to persuade customers who might be tossing up between a few different frequent flyer rewards programs.
For customers who travel frequently, the comprehensive travel insurance could also be an appealing feature, as long as they don’t need it for more than 180 days per year.
However, like all rewards credit cards, the Bendigo & Adelaide Bank Qantas Platinum Mastercard comes with a moderately high interest rate, so it is less suitable for customers who don’t pay off their credit cards in full each month.
What RateCity says
The Bendigo & Adelaide Bank Qantas Platinum Mastercard is yet another rewards credit card on the market, with a moderately high interest rate and annual fee to match.
Rewards credit cards rarely come cheap, so it is simply a matter of deciding whether the perks and benefits outweigh the cost of the card. With the Bendigo & Adelaide Bank Qantas Platinum Mastercard, there are certainly more generous rewards points credit cards available, but this card does also include some sought-after extras, including comprehensive travel insurance, extended warranty and purchase protection.
For existing Bendigo & Adelaide Bank customers, this card may be an easy option to link to their existing bank account and keep their financial products under one roof. But for other customers, there are more generous rewards points offers available at the same price.
To apply for the Bendigo & Adelaide Bank Qantas Platinum Mastercard, you must be at least 18 years old and meet any other serviceable criteria, potentially including minimum income, credit history and residency status. You can apply online in four easy steps, and will be asked to provide information on your finances and employment, as well as personal details to verify your identity. It’s a good idea to have some identification and recent payslips and bank statements on hand.
