The NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card has up to 120,000 bonus Qantas points and a reduced first-year annual card fee of $295 (save $100) on offer for new cardholders.

The signup bonus is split into two parts, with the first 90,000 Qantas Points to be received after spending $3,000 or more in the first 60 days from approval and an additional 30,000 Qantas Points after the annual fee for the second year is billed on your account.
