Amplify Rewards vs Qantas Points

We have a full guide explaining Amplify’s frequent flyer transfer partners and how to maximise your points balances by taking the sign-up bonus as Qantas Points and then switching to Amplify Rewards for ongoing spend.

Conclusion

These could be useful cards for those who are looking for non-Amex cards that earn points on spend and offers flexibility in how you use them, without a particularly expensive annual fee.

Bonus offers can be hit and miss on the Amplify range, but when they are on offer, these cards are worth considering. Those looking for more features like lounge access and other travel perks however might find the Amplify Signature more appealing.
