Can you pay by Amex? The Platinum Charge card will net you 1.125 points per dollar from April.

Chris is going to have a lot of fun when he sees this one
I will check on Amex, I think they mentioned that would be a charge over the agreed no fee for Visa, Mastercard, worth asking the question, thanks.

Bank of Melbourne / St George / Bank SA Signature Visa give uncapped 0.825 point per dollar once the annual birthday bonus is factored in
OK, never really thought of it like that at all. So will they then maybe tailor it to our needs in there offer as well? There is a chance the monthly spend will go up to $400k so maybe that again makes it more enticing for the banks to compete for the business? I didn't mention that as I thought it mightn't be what they offer on cc. I've got some learning to do in this space, sounds like some negotiating going on next week.
Is there an easy way to filter the CC offers to show only unlimited points earning and those offering choice of where you send points to? seems there are only a few form looking through the lists here.
Not to my knowledge. I think it is only the Westpac Black or St George / Bank of Melbourne Signature card in the Visa/MC category that has unlimited QF points at 0.75 per dollar or greater with the latter having the 10% annual birthday bonus
Hopefully in a good way...

Got to remember with credit cards there's a limit so you are asking for the bank for at least 250k and flexibility upwards.. probably less hassle with a charge card

While we can't provide readers with personal financial advice, we can suggest simply looking at the AMEX Qantas Business Rewards Card as well, which has an annual fee of $450 yet an uncapped earn rate of 1.25 Qantas Points per $1 spent on most purchases, compared to 1.125/$1 on the Business Platinum Charge Card through Membership Rewards from April (and the Platinum's much higher $1750 annual fee), as the QBR card earn rate isn't changing.If you spend lots on Qantas flights, the QBR card also earns more points on those bookings giving 2/$1 spent from the card, and triple Qantas Business Rewards points earned from the flight itself into a business' QBR account. However, on insurance and utility payments, the earn rate is only 0.5/$1 (versus 1.125/$1 on the Business Platinum from mid-April), so you'd need to do your own sums and pick the card that works best for you.As one final note on points, the QBR card credits these to a business' QBR account - not to a personal Qantas Frequent Flyer account - and from there, they can be converted by the business to any Qantas Frequent Flyer member and used accordingly, whereas AMEX Membership Rewards points can only be converted into frequent flyer points when transferring to the primary cardholder's personal frequent flyer accounts, and some programs (like Qantas, KrisFlyer etc.) have restrictions as to who those points can be used for, so you need to think about that as well if you were planning to use points for client or employee travel.
