Star Alliance Credit Card to launch in Australia

Earlier in the year it was announced that Star Alliance would have their own co-brand credit cards where the points could be used on any of their member airlines. The first such card has been announced and will launch in Australia. Issued by HSBC, the card offers Star Alliance Points that the cardholder will then chose to have converted to one (and only one) of the 26 member airlines. There is an easily achievable fast track to Star Alliance Gold Elite status in the first 90 days and then it requires a decent amount of spending each year after that to obtain/maintain the status. I still am of the belief we won’t see a Star Alliance card here in Canada any time soon. As I had mentioned previously the cards will most likely be targeted to countries where Stat Alliance doesn’t have a big presence and Australia is one of those countries. With Aeroplan being such a big player and multiple co-brand cards it really wouldn’t make sense to have a Star Alliance card here. (Source & Image via: Mainly Miles)
