Jetstar Mastercard - 0% balance transfer, annual fee refund + $100-$200 Flight Voucher

Posted By: ntowill, posted 2011/02/03 11:35
Why not transfer all your credit card balance to a new Jetstar MasterCard® and pay NO INTEREST FOR 6 MONTHS on the balance transferred.

But that's not the only reason to apply for the Jetstar MasterCard or the Jetstar Platinum MasterCard.

ANNUAL FEE REFUND
If you spend $2000 on purchases on your new Jetstar MasterCard or $3000 on your new Jetstar Platinum MasterCard by 30 April 2011, the annual fee will also be refunded for the first year.
That means $49 for the Jetstar MasterCard or $149 for the Jetstar Platinum MasterCard will be refunded to your account.

FREE JETSTAR FLIGHT VOUCHER
Apply by midnight (23:59 AEDT) Friday 18th February 2011 and you'll get off to a flying start with a Jetstar Flight Voucher to celebrate your first purchase on the card. If you are approved for a Jetstar MasterCard you will receive a $100 Jetstar Flight Voucher. If you are approved for a Jetstar Platinum MasterCard you will receive a $200 Jetstar Voucher. You will have 3 months to book and 6 months to travel.

    I wouldn't recommend using this credit card to get reward points as there as much better deals out there, but it is useful if you:

    [LIST=1]
    want to roll over some credit card debt and pay no interest (which is best to do if you are going to spend more money on it over the next few months to get the annual fee refunded)

    [*]are going to spend the $2k or $3k on it the next few months (to get your annual fee refunded) and get a $100/$200 flight voucher
    [/LIST]
    I pay off my credit card each month, so point 1 doesn't interest me, but point 2 is pretty tempting.... Free $200 flight voucher! Can cancel the credit card after that if you want (or just use if for the year and I think you also don't pay credit card processing fees on flights if you use their branded credit card)

    True.... probably worth considering if you are going to travel Jetstar in the next year.... if that was the case I'd definitely consider the platinum one as a) you get double points per $ spent plus b) they hold off on the vouchers until you hit $200, but more importantly c) it includes the travel insurance that frankly could pay for the annual cost of the card itself if you decide to keep it *and* you travel with them every year....

    If you spent $3k on the card, and then somehow managed to pump another $10k through it then you could end up with $400 worth of credit.... which at the moment could get you from Melb/Syd to NZ and back.... Then again you'd need to do that within 5 months or so to give you time to book & take that trip...

    The reason they want you to have one of their cards is so they have access to the spending patterns you use it for. That and they get a volume based kickback from the card company.

    If you get one of these - use it just for jetstar purchases and nothing else - that way you get the benefit without giving anything away. Otherwise you can guarantee jetstar will be using your data to earn money on the side.

    These sort of card deals can be great but you need to play the promoter at their own game otherwise your just getting taken for a sucker.

    Pay attention to Ninkasi's comments they are very insightful. You can only accumulate vouchers over a 6 month period, so to get $400 for say a NZ flight you have to spend $40000 over 6 months = 800 per week. So equivalent of getting $100K a year salary. And then you have to book the flight and travel before the first of the vouchers expire. So you are cutting it fine. Given that you would then have to wait for the last statement and then get the voucher in the mail etc. You would really only have say 5 months to accumulate. It gets harder and harder when you factor these into your plans.

    Other cards dont have the limitations that this card has, and you can shop around for flight with different airlines and so on. cards that give cashback or credit for giftcards (as long as you can shop there - eg Coles Woolworths are much more flexible
