Basic overview

With the NAB Signature Credit Card, you can earn up to 3 NAB Reward Points for every $1 spent, and the number of points you can earn each month is not limited. The card’s monthly fee of $24 can be reversed if you spend at least $5,000 per billing period.

This travel rewards card also comes with a complimentary suite of insurance coverage and travel perks, like complimentary flight lounge pass​es for delayed flights. 

You can transfer NAB Rewards Points to other rewards and loyalty programs, such as flybuys, Velocity Frequent Flyer, Accor Live Limitless (ALL), KrisFlyer, Cathay or Air New Zealand Airpoints programs, but you cannot use them to redeem Qantas points.

Understanding the monthly fee’s value

Over time the rewards and benefits of a credit card could potentially outweigh the monthly fee, depending on how you use the card. Here are a few ways you can ‘cover’ the $24 monthly cost: 

Know the true cost of rewards

To earn credit card rewards, your account must be in good standing and you may need to meet spending minimums. It’s important to remember that in doing so, you may incur fees and interest charges in addition to the annual or monthly card fee. These costs may offset the overall value of the rewards you accumulate and potentially any ‘savings’ you make through an introductory offer or through redeeming points for other benefits. So, balancing your spending and account management to maximise benefits whilst mitigating costs is crucial.

Understanding the balance transfer offer

The NAB Rewards Signature Credit Card offers 0% interest on balance transfers for the first 12 months. This means you can move over an existing credit card balance and pay zero interest on your transferred balance for a year. 

To retain the 0% interest rate on your balance transfer, you must make the interest-free days payment by the due date shown on your statement each month.

It’s also important to know that you won’t be able to transfer your balance from every card. For example, NAB cannot process balance transfers for cards from the following issuers:

Mind the revert rate

If you have a credit card balance on a card with a high interest rate, moving the balance to one with 0% interest could save you money — and give you time to pay down the balance. Keep in mind that the new card’s standard interest rate applies once the promotional period ends. So, ideally, you want to pay off the debt during the 0% interest period. It’s also important to consider the new card’s standard rate versus the interest rate you are paying on your current card, especially where you may not be able to pay the balance transfer off within the 0% interest rate period.

Offers and rewards

180,000 NAB Rewards Points may be available during the first year of ownership.

  • Earn 130,000 bonus points when you spend at least $3,000 on eligible purchases in the first 60 days. 
  • Get an extra 50,000 bonus points if you keep the card for more than one year. 

What’s the welcome offer worth?

The value of the welcome offer differs based on how points are redeemed. Here are a few examples of what you could get with 180,000 NAB Rewards Points:

  • $880 in gift cards
  • $720 in cashback
  • Various merchandise and experiences, such as a hot air ballooning trip for two over Hunter Valley.

When transferred to another frequent flyer program, 180,000 NAB Rewards Points equals: 

  • 180,000 Flybuys points
  • 90,000 Velocity Frequent Flyer points
  • 30,000 Accor Live Limitless (ALL) points
  • 60,000 Singapore Airline KrisFlyer Miles
  • 60,000 Asia Miles (Cathay Membership Programme)
  • 900 Airport Dollars (Air New Zealand Airports).

The above offers and the redeemable values of the points were current at the time of writing and are subject to change.

Beyond the constraints of your credit limit, there is no limit on the number of NAB Rewards Points using the Signature card. Here are a few examples of how purchases may earn you NAB Rewards:

3 NAB Rewards Points per $1 spent with Webjet.

1.5 NAB Rewards Points per $1 on all eligible purchases, up to $15,000 per statement period. 

0.5 NAB Rewards Points per $1 on all eligible purchases after you spend $15,000 in a statement period.

You can redeem NAB Reward Points in the following ways:

  • Cash back: 12,500 NAB Rewards Points equals $50 cashback.
  • Travel with Webjet: You can redeem points for flights, selected hotels and holiday packages through the Webjet website.
  • NAB Rewards Store: You can redeem points for merchandise, experiences, gift cards and charity donations through the Store.
  • Frequent flyer miles: The value of your NAB Points will vary depending on what rewards program you transfer your points to. According to the NAB website, transferring 3,000 NAB Rewards Points can earn you:
    • 3,000 Flybuys points
    • 1,500 Velocity Points
    • 500 Accor Live Limitless (ALL) points
    • 1,000 KrisFlyer Miles
