Expert review

The ANZ Frequent Flyer is an entry-level rewards card that earns 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases, up to $500 per statement period. If you spend more than this each month, you’ll earn a reduced rate of 0.25 points per $1 spent – so it’s worth thinking about how much you plan to spend each month.

How to apply

If you've compared a range of cards and decided you want to apply for the ANZ Frequent Flyer, you fill out a secure application online in around 5 minutes. Before you get started, make sure you meet the eligibility requirements and have all the relevant documents and details on hand.

Eligibility criteria

  • Minimum income. You must earn at least $15,000 per year before tax.
  • New cardholder. The bonus point offer is only available for new customers who have not held any ANZ Frequent Flyer credit card products in the last 12 months. This includes ANZ Frequent Flyer Gold, Platinum and Black cards that you may already have or that you previously had in the past year.

Card benefits

  • 25,000 bonus Qantas Points offer. Receive 25,000 bonus Qantas Points when you spend $1,000 on eligible purchases within the first 3 months from card approval.
  • Qantas Points per $1 spent. This card earns 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases up to $500 per statement period. It then earns 0.25 Qantas Points per $1 spent for the remainder of the statement period. The definition of eligible purchases covers most everyday spending categories, including groceries, dining, travel, petrol and retail shopping. Transactions that don't earn you points include cash advances, balance transfers, fees and transactions for gambling or gaming purposes.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This card charges a $95 annual fee.
  • Purchase rate. This card charges a variable purchase rate of 19.99% p.a.

      Thanks for your question.

      There is no minimum required spend amount to qualify for the 25,000 bonus Qantas points offer.
      The bonus points will be added to your ANZ Frequent Flyer account after your first eligible purchase within 3 months of account activation.

      I hope this helps.

    Required documents to apply for a Frequent Flyer Card includes accountant contact details if self employed. I am self employed but do not use an accountant. What alternative proofs do you require?

      Hi Sheila,

      Please note that finder.com.au is a financial comparison and information service and is not ANZ.

      Your accountant’s details are necessary when applying for a credit card as a self-employed because the bank needs proofs of your financial status. You could visit ANZ’s nearest branch or call their customer service to inquire if they accept alternative proofs.

      Cheers,

    Hi
    What exactly is a statement period?
    I would be interested in going overseas, if I spend the equivalent money to earn 5000 points, is this all credited to my frequent flyer or only the 1500 visa / 3000 amex.

      Hi Glenn, thanks for your inquiry!

      The statement period will depend on when your account was opened. To request a change in your statement period please contact ANZ directly. I have sent these contact details to your email. Any eligible spending will accumulate points to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
