NAB are now offering a trio of Qantas Frequent Flyer linked credit cards, with a new NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Visa added to their line-up.

The new Qantas Rewards Signature Visa is offering 75,000 bonus Qantas Points for new applicants and comes with a $395 annual fee. The existing NAB Qantas Rewards Premium card has 50,000 bonus Qantas Points. Both offers come with minimum spend requirements to trigger the bonus, with Signature at $4,000 and Premium at $2,500, both within 60 days of opening the account.

NAB have launched the Qantas Rewards Signature as a Visa-only option (unlike the rest of their Qantas card range which include a companion American Express). It earns 1 Qantas Point per $ up to $5,000 spent per statement period, and 0.5 Qantas Points per $ from $5,001 to $20,000, positioning it above the existing NAB Qantas Premium card which has a $5,000 per statement period points cap.

The NAB Qantas Rewards Premium joint American Express and Visa account has a $250 annual fee and offers 1 Qantas Point per $ earn rate on the American Express, and 0.5 Qantas Points per $ on the Visa.

This guide also covers the NAB Qantas account – a sub $100 annual fee Amex and Visa combo aimed at lighter spenders.


NAB made some changes to the NAB Qantas Premium and Classic accounts effective from July 1st, which we outlined in more detail here, with lowered earn points earn rates and points caps. These changes have been factored into this guide.


Digging into the details of NAB’s Qantas Frequent Flyer Credit Cards

The NAB Qantas card range has the Signature, Premium and a standard Classic account, with the Signature Visa at $395 annual fee, Premium with an annual fee of $250, and Classic at $95.

The key differences between Signature and Premium are fairly straightforward – the Premium card is handy for a decent 1 Qantas Point per dollar earn rate on the American Express with a lower annual fee, but has a points cap of $5,000 per statement period, whereas the Signature Visa offers a 1 Qantas Point per $ earn rate across all spend, reducing to 0.5 Qantas Points per $ over $5,001 per statement period (up to $20,000).

You’ll get access to a range of insurances with both the Signature and Premium cards, which may or may not be of use – one to look into with your own specific circumstances in mind. The insurances included are below, with the full PDS for them here.

  • Overseas Travel Insurance
  • Price Protection Insurance
  • Interstate Flight Insurance
  • Transport Accident Insurance
  • Domestic Hotel Burglary Insurance

This guide references some of the benefits of insurance policies provided with this credit card.

Summing up – NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Visa, and NAB Qantas Rewards Premium and Classic American Express & Visa / Mastercard accounts

NAB’s Qantas card range now offers a number of options which are useful to those collecting Qantas Points, however with so much competition in the market for Qantas credit cards, it is well worth comparing and considering with the alternatives out there to ensure you’re getting a bundle of bonuys points, earn rates, card features/benefits and annual fees that work for your circumstances.

Looking within the NAB Qantas card range alone, the key consideration is how much spend you are likely to be putting on an American Express versus a Visa. If your spend habits are skewed toward Visa / MasterCard, i.e. the amount of the spend you can put on an American Express is limited, then it could be worth focusing on the NAB Qantas Signature Visa over NAB Qantas Premium.

However, if you think you’ll be able to put much of your spend on the American Express, then the NAB Qantas Premium Amex/Visa companion account could work well with a lower annual fee. For either option you need to also consider the points caps that kick in at $5,000 per statement period.
