    Hi there I am confused as to what an eligible purchase is, can you pls advise? If I booked accommodation via wotif or Agoda would I be eligible for the 75,000 bonus points?

    • Staff
      GruSeptember 16, 2017Staff

      Hello Samantha,

      If you’re a new cardholder and book accommodation using your card via wotif or Agoda, you can collect a bonus 75,000 Qantas Points by spending at least $2,500 within 3 months of card approval.

      Eligible purchases do not include a number of transactions, like cash withdrawals from an ATM, gambling, balance transfers, insurance premiums, paying some bills and paying credit card and government fees and charges. They will not earn you points.

      To gain further clarification on specific spends in the future, you may also get in touch with ANZ directly.

      Hope this helped.

      Cheers,
      Gru

      Hi Steve,

      You are eligible for the bonus points if you have cancelled your card for over 12 months. You may apply for the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black and spend at least $2,500 on eligible purchases within 3 months of card approval to earn a bonus 75,000 Qantas Points as a new cardholder.

      I hope this information has helped.

    Hello,
    If I apply and am approved for a credit card with a $0 annual fee followed by $425pa fee (or any other amount), am I able to cancel the card before the second year starts so as to avoid the annual fee? And would I still receive the bonus sign up points?

    • Staff
      MaySeptember 12, 2017Staff

      Hi Emily,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, you can cancel your account at any time or before the second year starts. Just make sure though that there’s no outstanding balance on the card when you close it. As for the bonus Qantas Points, it will be credited to your Qantas account within three months of the eligible spend criteria being met. So if you cancel the card after the bonus points were credited to your Qantas account, yes, you will still receive them.

      Cheers,
      May

    Hi, I recently cancelled a ANZ FF Black card in March 2017. If I re-apply now, will i be eligible for reward points?

      Hi there,

      Thanks for your question.

      I’m afraid you won’t be eligible for the reward points since just cancelled your credit card recently. You should not have held or closed an ANZ Frequent Flyer, ANZ Frequent Flyer Gold, ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum or ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit card within the previous twelve months.
