Best Credit Cards For Qantas Points

Get a list of the best credit cards for earning Qantas Points based on your monthly and yearly spend across multiple categories. Includes partner cards.

If you're based in United Kingdom, the easiest way to earn Qantas Points on everyday spend will be the American Express Membership Rewards program.

American Express Membership Rewards

American Express Membership Rewards Points transfers to Qantas Frequent Flyer at a 1:1 ratio. This means that every 1,000 AMEX Points you transfer will give you 1,000 Qantas Points. AMEX offers a good handful of cards that will mostly earn you the equivalent of 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent. The card you decide on will depend on whether or not you want extra benefits or additional categories.

The simplest card in the bunch is the American Express Rewards Credit Card which has no annual fee and earns 1 point per $1 spent. The AMEX Platinum Card is on the opposite side of the fence offering elite travel benefits and perks. The remainder of the cards they offer fall in-between these two extremes.

This allows you to come up with a more accurate number by adjusting the cash value of perk, being able to calculate spend bonuses & other savings, add in sign up bonuses, toggle annual fees and authorized user fees, and much more.
