Question Best Credit Card Sign On Bonus?

Hi all

I have 104,500 points and wish to bring this total up to 138,000 or therabouts.

I have already about 12,000 points in my Safeway Credit card so 138,000 - 104,500 - 12,000 = 21,500 points needed.

I note that ANZ had a credit card sign on bonus of 16,000 points running late last year but unfortunately this has expired.

Can everyone save me a lot of research and advise me of the best Australian credit card deals and offers which provide a large number of Qantas points for signing up?

Thanks & Happy New Year
Peter

Hi again

I had another look at the ANZ offer and it appears that it has been extended to 31 December 2005. I have just applied online so hopefully I can pick up an easy 16,000 points.

Click on 'Apply Online Now' to see the extended dates to apply.

The only catch is that you have to be approved as well by 31 December but I hope they will be quick in approving the application.

That aside I'm still interested to hear of other credit card offers available that give Qantas points for signing up or for that matter other ways of getting points.

Regards Peter

Peter,

Remember that you can now buy QFF points to "Top up" specific bookings if necessary.

The 5,500 points you appear to require would cost $A197.50.

Then again in a few months it might be time to apply for a new credit card.
