    Well, how about the Citi Select offer. 60,000 points after spending AU$1000 within 3 months.

    It can be yours for just $700 a year (+$49 to have the points go to QF)

    Still It doesn't work out that expensive. The normal card rate is about $90 for the first year and they normally provide 16, 000 to 20, 000 QF/F points. So to get to 50, 000 points you would need about 3 cards.
    So (my simple maths): 3 x $90 = $270

    That means it works out about the same to get three other cards and not this one.

    However it all depends on what your lifestyle is and what your financial situation is.
    I would get all the cards and then get all the points I can.

    So Far I have scored 3 x 20, 000 point cards [​IMG]

    I've had the citi select for a few months now, and despite problems with citibank in general I've found this card to be far more worthwhile than the platinum card which I had for 5 years prior. Biggest benefit being the call center # is a local Sydney number, no voice system, no holding - just a direct connection to a premium citibank employee in Australia.

    Worth considering for a churn. $250 for 50,000 points isn't too bad.
