Jetstar Platinum gives flights for least points

Two enticing cedit card offers are the Virgin Flyer, offering zero per cent for six months on cash advances, balance transfers and purchases, and the low-rate BankWest Breeze MasterCard with 10 per cent cashback on spending for three months.

With frequent flyer programs, the credit card that gives you a return Brisbane-Sydney economy flight for the least amount spent is the Jetstar Dollars Platinum Mastercard.

Spending $5900 will earn a return trip to Sydney on the Jetstar platinum card but there is an annual fee of $149 and interest rate of 19.99 per cent. The best Qantas and Virgin-linked frequent flyer credit cards require spending of $10,000 to $12,000. Two-thirds of credit cards come with a points-based rewards program attached. About 15 per cent offer an instant rewards program.
