Qantas-specific benefits of Qantas Premier Platinum
The following benefits are available outside of Qantas Points earned from spend:
- Up to 20% discount on selected domestic companion fares when booking with the card through the Qantas Premier concierge service
- Two single-entry Qantas Club or select Qantas-operated International Business Lounge Invitations each cardholder anniversary year
- Complimentary domestic and international Travel Insurance
Discounted Companion Fares
Cardholders can take advantage of Discounted Companion Fares. You can take up to eight passengers at a discounted rate on selected Qantas domestic companion flights. You must book through the Qantas Premier concierge using the Qantas Premier Platinum Card.
As such, you will receive a 10% discount on red e-deal, 15% on Flexible Economy and 20% on Business fares.
Note that the discount is only applicable to the base fare, not the total fare including taxes. In addition, the terms state that:
Companion Fare Benefit discounts are not available on all fare classes and in some instances, there may be sale fares available to the general public that are cheaper than the fares offered under the Companion Fare Benefit.
Therefore, the deepest discount fares may not be matched by what you can earn from the companion fare discount either.
Discounted Companion Fares are only usable once a year and can’t be reinstated in case of a cancelled booking. Also, the Primary Card Member must be travelling on the booking.
Overall, this benefit is most useful for families booking in peak periods. Red e-Deal fares may not be available and you are unlikely to be able to cancel.
Qantas Lounge Invitations
Enjoy two Qantas Complimentary Lounge Invitations each year on your card anniversary. These Invitations can be used at domestic Qantas Club and Qantas-operated International Business Lounges. Note that the Los Angeles Lounge at Tom Bradley Terminal International Terminal is excluded.
Qantas Club Invitations are digital and can be viewed via your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.

Summing up: the Qantas Premier Platinum Card
Qantas Premier Platinum is a solid option for earning Qantas Points from your spending, with no points cap. You’ll need to factor in the restrictions mentioned above on government transactions though.
Make sure you understand all the terms and conditions for the Discounted Companion Fares to make the most of this benefit.
The extra 0.5 Qantas Points per dollar earned on international transactions helps when using your card on international spending. But while you’ll pick up an extra 0.5 Qantas Points per dollar vs domestic spending, you’ll pay an equivalent additional fee of 6c per point (0.5 points per dollar with the 3% additional fee for international transactions).
You should consider the Qantas Premium Platinum Card if you are looking for a direct Qantas-earning card. Especially if you do spend with Qantas frequently.
