100,000 bonus Qantas Points, with a high 1.25 Qantas Point per $1 earn rate on everyday business spend with the new American Express Qantas Business Rewards charge card

The new American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card has 100,000 bonus Qantas Points on offer for new cardholders. The card replaces the existing Qantas Business Charge card, with a new card design and a range of enhanced benefits.

The card is targeted at smaller business owners, looking for a Charge card (meaning no caps on spending each month, as long as you pay the monthly bill in full) with the ability to earn Qantas Points, and boost the Qantas Points they can earn from their business travel with Qantas.

Qantas Points earned on the card are credited to a business’ Qantas Business Rewards account rather than a Qantas Frequent Flyer account, which gives businesses increased flexibility in how they can redeem points earned from spend on the card – Qantas Business Rewards allows business owners to transfer points to any Qantas Frequent Flyer member. Free Qantas Business Rewards membership is also included with the card (usually $89.50). Continue reading…
