Pocket 140,000 bonus Qantas Points
140,000 Qantas Points could get you travelling in style or redeeming for a range of different vouchers or goods at the Qantas Store.
While immediate travel is off the cards for most businesses right now, it’s well worth saving your points for future opportunities. 140,000 Qantas Points could get you travelling almost anywhere on the Qantas and partner airline network (excluding applicable taxes/fees).
Get up to $320 back when you spend with popular merchants
Amidst the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, it can be hard to take full advantage of travel and lifestyle benefits on premium cards. In order to add tangible value to their customer base, Amex has launched a generous cashback promotion that’s open to new cardholders.
With the American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card, you can register to get up to $320 back on business purchases made by 31 December through six popular merchants:
Businesses simply need to spend $20 or more on eligible purchases at participating businesses by 31 December 2020 to get $20 back, up to 16 times. With featured merchants including PayPal, Australia Post and Google, this represents an easy opportunity for most businesses to receive $320 back on eligible spend.
By taking full advantage of this offer, you’ll offset a substantial portion of the $450 annual card fee.
Relax with two domestic Qantas Club lounge entries each year
Each year, you’ll receive two invites for domestic Qantas Club lounges (excluding Qantas Business lounges).
Once your Qantas Club lounge passes have been activated, you’ll receive an email from Qantas and your two digital lounge passes will be attached to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.
Note that each Qantas Club lounge pass admits one person only. However, you could use your two passes for two people.
Get up to 2 Qantas points per $1
Earn 2 Qantas Points per $1 spent on Qantas products and services with your Card – that’s Qantas flights (with a QF flight number), Qantas Holidays, Qantas Branded non-airfare products, and Qantas Frequent Flyer and Qantas Club membership joining and annual fees.
You’ll enjoy a generous earn rate of 1.25 Qantas Points per $1 spent everywhere else, except for utilities, insurance (with the exception of American Express) and government bodies.
Spend with utilities, government bodies and non-Amex issued insurance earns at a rate of 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 spent.
1.25 Qantas Points per $1 is one of the highest earn rates for everyday spend in Australia, and it makes this Card an attractive one to keep for the long term.
Best of all, there’s no cap on how many points you can earn – regardless of how much you spend per month or each year.

Once you’ve amassed points within your Qantas Business Rewards account, you can transfer them out at a 1:1 rate to any Qantas Frequent Flyer account of your choice. You have the flexibility to send them to yourself, to an employee or a family member – it’s up to you.
Earn TRIPLE Qantas Points for business on eligible flights
You’ll earn triple Qantas Points when your Card is used to make an eligible Qantas flight booking. You can earn up to 4 million points per membership year in this way, and that’s in addition to the Qantas Points and Status Credits you’d normally earn.
The triple points can also be earned on eligible Qantas flights for others, provided they are booked using your Card.
