What are people's thoughts? Does it represent value for money?

It will be very interesting to see if they pick up customers who drop their AMEX platinum cards after the evaluation of the AMEX rewards program in April.

I can definitely see the appeal to big spenders vice high flyers. Not much benefit to top tier FF’s but anyone else with deep pockets and lower status could easily counterbalance the fee with a couple of long haul J flights.

This card makes little sense. Most big spenders would have at least platinum status already? The FF point rate is useful but does not compensate the 1200 annual fee. My personal spend is over the 12k per month and so I will not get the extra benefit. plus no flight voucher, hotel affiliation etc. I will stick with Amex where I can use it and Westpac when I am forced to use MC

I think this is the card aimed for high rollers who travel on once or twice business class flights on Qantas. They haven't flown enough for Platinum Status so first class lounge passes could be useful and can take advantage of the discount enough to offset the annual fee. Or they could be aiming for those that are burning Qantas points on flights as soon as they earn it, so can't earn enough status credits but can use the lounge passes on flights too.

It would seem to me that it is very unlikely rhat there is somebody in this country that fits the target market for this card; namely:

Even being in the income bracket, $1200 fee = no!

I am a medical professional (so I fly infrequently for conferences, and a few times a year for leisure, but nowhere near the extent of a business traveller) who is unlikely to ever achieve above my current gold FF status, so I guess the card is aimed at someone similar to my demographic, however there is no chance I would get this card. I would essentially be paying $1200 a year to gain entry to the First lounge once (with my partner) and so I can get a modest discount off some flights twice per year? I am perfectly happy with my Amex Ultimate card at a third of the price, entirely offset by the $450 yearly travel credit, and the standard Qantas club entry I am afforded by my gold status. On top of that - a metal card means no PayWave, and Qantas last time I checked still refuses to get on board with Apple Pay so I can't use my phone or watch to make purchases either. Thanks but no thanks!

the earn threshold seems a bit stingy imo

The target market is
a. someone with over $200,000pa income and flies QA and
b. is a snob and wants the metal card

There really shouldn't be a monthly points earn cap when you're spending this much on an annual fee - the card is designed for buyers after all.

This card is one of the worst value cards to ever to hit the market .

metal card is not easy on touch pay, and its heavy, not to mention it s slippery in any wallet slot...

I'm not entirely sure what you are on about - I have the metal Amex and I've never had any issues with touch pay on any device (or in other countries).
