The Amplify Classic is St.George’s entry-level Amplify Rewards earning card with a low ongoing annual fee.

Digging into the details of the St.George Amplify Classic – Amplify Rewards card

The St.George Amplify Classic – Amplify Rewards card is an entry-level card and like most cards in this segment – comes with very limited features.

One of its advantage, however, is the ability to earn 1 Amplify Rewards point (which also equals to 0.5 Velocity Points, Krisflyer or Enrich Miles when transferred) on all eligible spend with no points cap. This is quite decent considering the annual card fee is only $79.

The strength of Amplify Rewards is its ability to be transferred to multiple rewards partners, offering flexibility in how you redeem your points.

Summing up

The St.George Amplify Classic – Amplify Rewards card, along with the other cards in the Amplify Rewards family could be useful for those who are looking for non-Amex cards that earn points on spend and offers flexibility in how you use them.

This card, in particular, has a low annual card fee but still offers a decent uncapped earn rate comparable to the mid-tier Amplify Platinum.

Those looking for more features like insurances, lounge access and other travel perks, however, might find the Amplify Signature cards more appealing.
