American Express Business Accelerator Guide

American Express Business Accelerator card | Point Hacks

The American Express Business Accelerator is a useful card for those looking to pick up a dedicated business credit card AND maximise their points earn.

The card is aimed at sole traders or small to medium size businesses, and of course you’d want to be sure you can put the majority of your transactions through an American Express to be able to take advantage of the points on offer.

If you can, then you’ll be able to earn 2 Membership Rewards points per dollar spent, up to 100,000 points per year (or $50,000 in spend, equivalent to just over $4,150 per month on average) after which the earn rate drops down to 1 Membership Rewards points per dollar. Continue reading…

Westpac Altitude Business credit card guide

As outlined briefly in the Altitude Rewards guide, the Altitude Business card range has a relatively unique benefit – the opportunity to earn points into Altitude Rewards, and then transfer them to a range of frequent flyer programs, including Qantas Frequent Flyer.

On top of that, there are respectable points earn rates from spend, and a current offer of no annual fee in the first year – but no bonus points.

The only other cards on the market that let you accrue points to transfer to Qantas later are the $1200 pa Platinum Charge card and some older (now not available) Citibank and Commonwealth cards.

Note: Westpac credit cards issued following applications started on or after 1 March 2019 will be Mastercard branded.

Westpac’s site isn’t too clear about how exactly Qantas points can be transferred, so I gave them a couple of calls to verify – points are definitely earned into Altitude Rewards and are transferrable, not swept monthly, over to Qantas Frequent Flyer.
