St.George Bank and Qantas today announced a new credit card partnership with the launch of ‘Amplify’, a new rewards credit card. Amplify offers the market a choice of rewards programs - customers can choose between two rewards programs, either Amplify Qantas or Amplify Rewards.
By linking the St.George Amplify credit card to the Amplify Qantas rewards program, customers will earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points on eligible purchases at the rate of 1 point per $2 spent. Points will be automatically transferred to the customer’s Qantas Frequent Flyer account each month.
With Amplify Rewards, customers will earn Amplify Points that can be redeemed for a range of items including technology, gift cards, home appliances, movie tickets, wine, fitness & leisure equipment, magazine subscriptions and flights and accommodation with Amplify Travel Service.
Greg Bartlett, St.George Bank’s Chief Executive said, “We’re delighted to partner with Qantas Frequent Flyer and offer the market a rewards credit card that gives people the ability to choose between reward programs and all within the one credit card account.”
Simon Hickey, Chief Executive, Qantas Frequent Flyer, said, “We look forward to a strong, successful relationship with St.George Bank. Qantas Frequent Flyer is Australia’s leading loyalty program with 6.9 million member accounts.”
To celebrate the launch, St.George is offering customers double rewards points on all eligible purchases made with their Amplify rewards credit card from April 2010 to 30 June 2010. During this period, customers will earn:
- Amplify Rewards: 2 Amplify points per $1 on eligible purchases
- Amplify Qantas: 1 Qantas Frequent Flyer point per $1 on eligible purchases
For a limited time St.George is also offering customers Qantas Frequent Flyer membership without the joining fee (save $82.50) for customers who aren’t already members and who link their card to the Amplify Qantas rewards program.
Key features of the St.George Amplify Rewards Credit Card are:
