Who is it good for?
This card is a good option for current Qantas Frequent Flyer members (or partner airline members) who regularly make purchases on their credit card and are diligent about paying off their balance each month.
For these customers, the Woolworths Qantas Platinum Credit Card card offers the potential to save money on flights and travel insurance. It does come with international spending fees, though, so it isn’t especially suitable for using while travelling overseas.
People who are thinking about changing credit cards or want to pay off existing debt faster would also benefit from this card’s introductory balance transfer deal.
Conversely, those on a strict budget or who aren’t always able to clear their balance before interest accrues are probably not a good fit for this card due to its high interest rate.
What RateCity says
The Woolworths Qantas Platinum Credit Card is a solid frequent flyer credit card with all the usual benefits you might expect, including a frequent flyer rewards program and complimentary insurance.
While the interest rate is high (which is standard for a platinum rewards card), this card’s introductory moderate annual fee is lower than some other comparable cards, which could also be an additional drawcard for some.
Likewise, the balance transfer deal is likely to be an incentive for people thinking about making the switch.
On the other hand, if you plan to share a credit card account, you’d probably be better off looking elsewhere for a card that allows free supplementary cardholders. And if you want to minimise the risk of debt, it might also be worth choosing a card with a lower interest rate and fees.
To be eligible for the Woolworths Qantas Platinum Credit Card, you must be at least 18 years old and an Australian permanent resident. You must also earn a minimum taxable income of $30,000 a year and have a good credit history. To apply, you will need to provide proof of identification, personal details and information about your financial standing and income, such as bank statements and payslips. Applications can be completed online.
