THE PROBLEM

Customers don’t want to use multiple apps to manage their finances and reward points

When Qantas Airlines partnered with Citi to whitelabel their Premier credit cards (Titanium, Platinum and Everyday), they wanted to make card management so smooth, users could not only stay in the Qantas Money app to manage their card, they could also view rewards points and information from other accounts as well. By keeping customers in the app, Qantas could reduce these pain points for card users and drive brand loyalty on travel services.

THE SOLUTION

The Qantas Money app

To solve this problem, Qantas created an app that could manage the customer's card and rewards, as well as their personal finances.

With this innovative app, customers can:

  • Easily view and pay their card balance
  • View Frequent Flyer miles
  • Track and compare spending and transactions across accounts

Here’s how Citi powers this one-of-a-kind customer experience

 

Credit Card Application

In addition to the app, the Qantas Money website integrates the Citi Onboarding API to enable customers to have a fast and seamless credit card application experience.

Ease and control

Customers have full control of their Qantas Premier account with features like Bpay, reporting lost or stolen cards and keeping their Citi-held account information up to date.

Earn more points

The Qantas Money app serves retail offers so customers can earn additional points toward their Qantas rewards point balance.

Qantas used Citi APIs to power their solution
