American Express consistently rolls out some of the best credit card bonuses going around, but while the point bonus, earn, and travel credit on these cards are good, it’s the other perks that make them all the more worthwhile.
One little known benefit of being an American Express cardholder is access to their entertainment lounges at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena and First State Super Theatre, as well as the Brisbane Entertainment centre.
The lounge at Qudos Bank Arena recently underwent a big refresh and the result is a stunning place to relax before a concert or sporting game. To gain entry to the American Express Lounge at Qudos Bank Arena, all you need to do is show your American Express Card – any card will do (although we’re pretty sure Platinum & Centurion cardholders get priority entry) – it’s as simple as that.
Once inside there’s a range of different seating areas, all of which are close to the bar and open kitchen, where you can order drinks and nibbles (menu here). Regular cardholders can bring up to 3 guests in, while the aforementioned Platinum & Centurion holders can invite up to 5.
The American Express lounge at Qudos Bank arena is on Level 1, opposite door 39 and is not easy to miss. Check out some photos of the space below and if you’re not a cardholder, take a look at our pick of the bunch- the American Express Qantas Ultimate card here.
