As summer begins to cool off, there's no reason your frequent flyer points balance should do the same – if anything, it's a great chance to get rid of any melted plastic in your wallet and replace it with something more pristine.
Whether you're only interested in earning frequent flyer points or want other perks too like lounge access and travel insurance, you're bound to find an enticing deal on the cards with up to 100,000 Qantas frequent flyer points up for grabs from a single card application.
You'll also continue to earn frequent flyer points on monthly spends made with all of these cards, and as it happens, the cards below offer some of Australia's highest frequent flyer earning rates to boost your points balance even further.

1. American Express Platinum Charge Card

In first place this February is the American Express Platinum Charge Card and its enticing offer of 100,000 Membership Rewards points, which can be converted into 100,000 Qantas Points – being one of the few cards in Australia where manually converting points to Qantas is still possible.

You’ll need to apply by May 31 2016, fork out an annual fee of $1,200 and spend $1,000 on purchases in the first two months (in addition to the annual fee). Those spends can net you three points per dollar at Australian restaurants and two points per dollar when travelling overseas or shopping online with a foreign retailer.
Further, there are two points per dollar up for grabs with airlines, hotels, cruise lines, tour companies and travel agents in Australia, half a point per dollar with government bodies, most insurance companies and utilities, and one point per dollar everywhere else.

2. American Express Qantas Premium Card

When $1,200/year is too much to pay for a card – even a Platinum one – take a look at the American Express Qantas Premium Card with a much more affordable $249 annual fee and a cool bonus of precisely 82,500 Qantas Points.

File your application by February 29 2016 and spend $3,000 or more on the card in the first three months (in addition to the annual fee) to collect an even 80,000 Qantas Points, plus a further 2,500 Qantas Points after using the card to pay for a Qantas flight or your Qantas Club membership.
Thereafter, you'll earn two Qantas Points per dollar spent with Qantas and at major supermarkets and petrol stations in Australia, half a point per dollar with utilities, most insurance providers and government bodies and one point per dollar elsewhere.

3. ANZ Qantas Frequent Flyer Black credit cards

ANZ's top-level Qantas Frequent Flyer Black American Express + Visa combo delivers 75,000 Qantas Points to new customers who spend at least $2,500 on purchases in the first three months: simple!

Making the deal even more enticing is the promise of no annual fee or additional cardholder fees in the first year – saving you at least $425 for a solo customer and a further $65 per additional cardholder you add to the account, up to nine in total.
Points on your purchases remain generous at 1.5 Qantas Points per dollar spent on the AMEX, uncapped, plus 0.75 Qantas Points per dollar on the Visa which you'd use at merchants that don't accept American Express, or where there's a surcharge you don't fancy paying.

4. Citi Prestige Visa Infinite credit card

Citibank's recent credit card overhaul left Qantas spenders immune to cutbacks when using the  Citi Prestige Visa Infinite credit card, which still serves up an easy 70,000 Qantas Points for new customers.

Just apply by April 29 2016, pay a total annual fee of $749 – broken down as $700 for the card and an extra $49 to earn Qantas Points – and use your card to make at least one purchase within three months of card approval and those bonus points are yours to keep.
What’s more, you'll keep raking in one Qantas Point for every dollar spent with no limit to the number of points you can earn every month or year, and no reduction to the per-dollar earning rate: regardless of how much you can comfortably charge and repay.

5. NAB Qantas Rewards Premium credit cards

Much like ANZ and the other 'Big Four Banks', NAB too offers dual card accounts where customers can earn the most points by using an AMEX, yet with the assurance of a Visa tucked away in your wallet for those times where AMEX isn't welcome.

NAB's Qantas Rewards Premium deal sees 60,000 Qantas Points added to your account after spending at least $1,500 on everyday purchases on either card in the first 90 days: just apply by April 30 2016, pay an annual fee of $250 and you're all set.
On spends of up to $50,000 per monthly statement period, you’ll continue to reel in 1.5 Qantas Points per dollar via the AMEX, 0.5 Qantas Points per dollar on the Visa and one bonus Qantas Point per dollar on either card when spending with Qantas.
