American Express has extended the offer of a massive 120,000 bonus Qantas Points with the American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card: one of Australia’s top cards for businesses. This opportunity is now scheduled to end on 25 September 2019.
120,000 Qantas Points is an epic deal: it’s enough to fly to New York or London in economy return or Asia in business class return (more on that below)
The Amex Qantas Business Rewards Card is packed with valuable features, including a very high points earn rate on spend, triple Qantas Points for flights, Qantas lounge passes, insurance covers and features to save cardholders time and money.
Here’s an overview of the card benefits and features, with more details and a mobile-friendly application form available here.
1. Receive a high points earn rate on spend
You’ll supercharge your frequent flyer account by earning 1.25 Qantas Points per dollar spent on purchases (uncapped) – a very strong earn rate.
For Qantas products and services, you’ll earn 2 Qantas Points per $1 spent, while with utilities, government bodies and non-Amex issued insurance, you’ll earn 0.5 points per $1 spent.
The points will be credited to your business’ Qantas Business Rewards (QBR) account. QBR is a program that rewards businesses with savings on flights and points on purchases. Membership is complimentary with your card.
From your QBR account, you can transfer points to any Qantas Frequent Flyer member including yourself, employees or family members – giving you a lot of flexibility with how you use your points.
2. Earn triple Qantas Points when you fly
You’ll earn Qantas Points and Status Credits like any Qantas Frequent Flyer when you fly with Qantas. On top of that, you’ll earn triple Qantas Points on eligible Qantas flights booked with your card, up to 4 million points per membership year.
Eligible flights are domestic or international flights with a QF flight number purchased in Australia and operated by Qantas, Emirates or American Airlines.
Triple points are earned when anyone travels on flights booked using your card.
3. Relax at a Qantas Club twice a year
Relax before your next flight in style, even if you’re flying economy.
You’ll receive two Qantas Club passes each year, which will be triggered when you pay for an eligible Qantas purchase with your card.
Eligible Qantas purchases are Qantas passenger airfares with a QF flight number purchased directly from Qantas Australia, and Qantas Frequent Flyer, Qantas Business Rewards or Qantas Club membership, joining or annual fees.
Relax in a Qantas Club twice a year
You can use the passes for yourself or a travel partner, or easily transfer them to someone else.
These passes are valued at over $50 each, giving you at least $100 of value here each year.
4. Travel securely with domestic and overseas travel insurance
You’ll receive domestic and international travel insurance cover for you, your family and additional card members when you use your card to pay for your travel arrangements.
You’ll be covered for:
- inconvenience costs (flight delays and cancellations, and luggage delays)
- medical expenses
- damaged, destroyed, lost, or stolen baggage, money and documents
- trip cancellation costs
- transport accidents
- personal liability.
The insurance terms and conditions are available here.
If you’re currently paying for travel insurance and this cover meets your needs, you can save a lot of money by relying on it.
5. Save time and money with other features
Your business will also benefit from these features:
- up to 99 complimentary additional cards, which will help you earn more Qantas Points while easily keeping track of expenses
- save 5 – 8% on the base fare of eligible Qantas flights
- no pre-set spending limit when you pay your balance in full each month
- Flexible Payment Option: you can opt to spread out payments for purchases (up to $35,000) over time. Enrollment is complimentary.
- integration with MYOB, Xero and other accounting software.

Use your points to enjoy Qantas business class
This offer is only available to new American Express Card Members. That means you must not have held a card issued directly by Amex Australia in the last 18 months. However you are still eligible if you’ve held an Amex card issued by a bank (i.e. Westpac, ANZ, CBA or NAB) or you’re an additional card member on someone else’s account.
The card annual fee is $450, which is very good value given all the perks, and it should be tax deductible (chat with your accountant). The minimum annual business revenue to qualify is $75,000.
It’s very simple to apply, including on mobile devices – you don’t need to upload any documents.
Don’t miss out on this huge offer. With this card in your wallet, you’ll be taking off in no time!
