Card doesn't support Google Pay
Went to set up contactless payments on my Android phone and found out card does not support G Pay, only Apple Pay. In this day and age you would expect much better.
Get in, get the points, get out
$199 for 100,000 frequent flyer points is a pretty good deal. I was able to get the bonus in my first month, paid on the day my first month's statement was sent, and I cancelled immediately after. No Google Pay function is ridiculous. The website requires you to log in with a 4 digit pin, then a 6 digit code sent to your mobile. But that's not all, try to view your statement and it THEN asks you for your password (which I'd forgotten). Unnecessarily complicated.
An overall expensive card with a limited feature set.
Pro: A good sign on bonus and reasonable earn rate on purchases for Qantas points
Con: high annual fee of $300 a year and the only thing you really get is the points. The interest rate is very high, the card isn't worth a dime if you can't pay it off each month. It also lacks many features eg Android Pay (Apple pay is supported, I was told there is no plan to support Android Pay in the future despite being told this at sign up). Customer service is off shore and not particularly helpful. Don't even bother trying to contact them via the online form, I have never received a response.
This card is NOT compatible with Apple, Samsung or Google Pay
Upon receiving this card, and setting it up for everything, I realised that this card is not compatible with either Apple, Samsung or Google Pay. This is very disappointing especially in this day and age where pretty much every major card player is compatible with these mobile payment methods. Additionally, it's extremely strange considering the card is a white labeled Citibank card which IS compatible with Apple and Samsung.
Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay NOT available
I took out this card as this website advises Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay available. On receiving the card it turns out this is not the case and doesn't seem to be coming anytime soon.
Unsophisticated and unimpressive product.
The only advantage to this card is the bonus frequent flyer points in the first 6 months, assuming you meet spending requirements. The app and internet banking platforms are poorly designed and rudimentary and unsophisticated in their functions. It is frustrating to use. No ApplePay facility either. Which all makes the annual fee of $299 expensive for an overall unimpressive product in what is a competitive market for credit cards. I would not recommend this credit card.
No Apple Pay. Really?
I really was surprised that a card in this day and age offers no Apple Pay. Get with the times Qantas Money if you want to meet minimum customer expectations!
Like many others I chose this card for the bonus Qantas points. I thought twice about it as Citibank is involved and I have had bad dealings with Citibank before and would NEVER bank with them again, however as it was a Qantas card I thought I would give it a go. I opted for the easi-pay direct debit method of paying the full balance at the end of the month. Big mistake. Twice my balance had been near the limit so I have stopped using the card for the last few days of the statement period. When the automatic debit has been done it is deducted f...rom my bank account on the applicable day. It then shows up on my credit card statement the next day as being done BUT it is NOT credited to the balance for a number of days. At the moment I have been waiting 4 days for it to be credited and now their website is down and the app is not working so I can not check to see how much credit is on the card. This has resulted in not being able to use my card for at least a week each month. I have contacted Qantas online and asked why it is taking so long to put the credit onto the balance of the card. I have heard NOTHING. Also the Statements do not show the balance owing at the top, only the MINIMUM payment due. I doubt I will renew my card at the end of the year. I will be using my CBA credit card instead.
Still no Apple Pay
Overall decent rewards but seriously no Apple Pay? Also, I can’t link the card to my acorns or raiz account. Come on I t’s 2020, you should be doing better considering the cost of the annual fee.
Not worth it
The card seems to accumulate Qantas points regularly, though I don't check this. I chose this card for the travel insurance.
I'm not going to continue with this card because it is too hard to communicate with the company. The website is not all intuitive. There is no phone option to talk to a consultant. If you don't choose one of their two options, the call is terminated. Through experience and desperation, I've learned to choose the easiest option, relevant or not. I followed the instruction to report an unexpected SMS, thinking it was a security issue. It just wasted a lot of my time and they didn't know what I was talking about.
Worried about security
I've been using this card for years and enjoyed the boost to my frequent flyer points balance but I am worried about security.
I have had 3 card changes in the last 2 years due to my credit card details being stolen. I shop regularly at the same places and this doesn't happen with my other cards so I'm not sure why this card is more susceptible to fraud and scams.
I think I would rather stop earning points than having my details sold online.
- Everyday Expenses
- Online Shopping
- Special Purchases
In this competitive space, this card offers no advantages and plenty of disadvantages
The "Details" on this card on this very page is misleading. This card does NOT work with the contactless payment (I tried Samsung pay and Google pay) it also does not work with any money management app (like moneytree or pocketbook). It has a TERRIBLE app and even worse monthly statement. In fact I will be complaining to the ACCC as to how misleading their payment info is. In short, the summary page only shows the minimum payment required but does NOT show the full payment required to avoid any late fees. You will have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the statement to find that. The app also does not show this. Such greedy practices
No Apple Pay - its 2019!
Contrary to the information provided on this product review website, the Qantas Premier Platinum card does not support Apple Pay. Very disappointing. Citigroup - please get your act together! It's nearly 2020 for heavens sake!
Concerns with customer service
Some good, bad and downright ugly feedback.
The good - the first 12 months went well, no problems. The fees are quite high when compared with other cards but I was prepared to pay them in return for good security monitoring and customer service. Unfortunately I experienced a fraud situation but it was picked up very quickly and a replacement card supplied within 2 days. Good stuff, I thought I was in good hands.
The bad: That's where the good news ends. I could not activate the new card, it is not visible in my account, therefore I cannot view ...
Questions & Answers
Do I still need to spend $1500 per month to earn bonus points for?
Does Qantas send any confirmation (written document) indicating that the travel insurance have been activated after an over $500 air or cruise ticket purchase? We bought tickets to Bali but we are not sure if the travel insurance is indeed active.
It does not, unfortunately.
