American Express® Frequent Flyer Credit Card.

Why choose a Frequent Flyer Credit Card?

How do Frequent Flyer Credit Cards Work?​

Frequent Flyer Credit Cards enable you to earn points on every day spend. They are linked to an airline program such as Qantas and Velocity and the points you earn will transfer to your frequent flyer account.​

How to earn Frequent Flyer points

Depending on the Card you choose, you’ll earn Qantas1 or Velocity2 points as soon as you start spending on your Credit Card. Each month, the points you accumulate will automatically be transferred to the respective Frequent Flyer program.


Accelerate your points


Depending on the Card you choose, you can earn more Frequent Flyer points when you shop in certain places or spend directly with an airline.

Additional Cards can be added to your Account for friends and loved ones3. They’ll be able to share your Card benefits and you’ll earn Frequent Flyer points every time they make a purchase.

You can earn up to 200,000 Bonus Points a year by successfully referring your friends to American Express. Refer your friend today and earn Bonus Points! T&Cs apply.

Redeeming your Frequent Flyer Points

The Qantas or Velocity Frequent Flyer points you earn each month will be automatically transferred to your partner program. Once transferred, redeem your points directly through your chosen program for flights to thousands of destinations within Australia and across the world.


Depending on which program you’re with, you can also use your points for:

  • Upgrades.
  • Luxury hotel bookings (there are thousands to choose from).
  • Car hire.
  • Gifts and more.

Travel benefits

Along with earning points, some American Express Frequent Flyer Cards come with additional travel benefits such as complimentary domestic flights, Travel Credit, access to airport lounges and Travel Insurance.

And wherever you are, all American Express Frequent Flyer Credit Card Members will enjoy the peace of mind of our 24/7 customer service.
