Expert review

The introductory offer on the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum is a standout feature, giving you enough Qantas Points for a one-way economy flight from Melbourne to Los Angeles (excluding fees and taxes). This offer is also sweetened by $195 back on your account when you’ve met the spend requirement.

How to apply

You can apply for the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum online in around 5 minutes. Get started by checking that you meet the following eligibility criteria and have all the documents and details you'll need for the application.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency requirement. Citizens and permanent residents of Australia are eligible to apply. If you are a non-Australian permanent resident, you must have an eligible working or business visa with at least 9 months remaining.
  • New cardholder. The bonus points 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 the ANZ Frequent Flyer, ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum and ANZ Frequent Flyer Black accounts.

Card benefits

  • 50,000 bonus Qantas Points offer. You can collect 50,000 bonus points as a new customer when you spend $2,000 in the first 3 months from your card approval date. The bonus points will be added to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account within three months of meeting the eligible spend criteria.
  • Cashback offer. Spend $2,000 on eligible purchases in the first 3 months and you'll also get $195 credit back to your new ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum. The $195 credit will be applied to the purchases balance on your card within 3 months of meeting the spend requirement. Just keep in mind that it does not count as a payment towards your balance – so you'll still need to pay at least the minimum amount listed on your statement once the credit is applied.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This card charges a standard annual fee of $295, which is made up of a $240 annual account fee and a $55 rewards program services fee.
  • Rates and fees. The ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum offers cardholders a 20.24% p.a. interest rate on purchases and a 20.24% p.a. interest rate on cash advances.

    Does my Frequent Flyer Platinum Credit Card complimentary travel insurance include car hire excess fees?

      Hi Matt,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      The answer to your question is yes. To activate this cover, make sure that the entire payment for the vehicle rental was charged to your card account.

      Please note as well that cover begins when you collect the rental vehicle from the rental vehicle company and ends when you return the rental vehicle to the rental vehicle.

      For more details, I highly recommend that you get in touch with ANZ as well.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua

      Hi Jane,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Yes, your credit card annual fee will be waived if you have breakfree package. However, please note that the only fees that become due on or after the date that the Nominated Credit Card Account is linked to the ANZ Breakfree Package will be waived.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Bella

    I had an ANZ Qantas Frequent Flyer credit card a few years ago but closed it and took out an Amex card. However, I’m now finding that numerous outlets do not accept payments with an Amex card. Consequently, I’m looking for a new credit card. Will I be eligible for the 50,000 points incentive, even though I had an ANZ Qantas credit card until 2016?

      Hello Charlie,

      Thank you for your comment.

      According to ANZ, the bonus points offer is not available where you currently hold an ANZ Frequent Flyer, ANZ Frequent Flyer Gold, ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum or ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit card, or have closed, or qualified for bonus Qantas Points or a credit back on, any of those ANZ Frequent Flyer credit cards within the previous 12 months.

      If you had the card in 2016 and have it closed, you may be qualified. But it’s still best to validate this with ANZ as they have also indicated that the offer is available to new and approved applicants who apply for an ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum credit card account.

      Please make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn

      Hi Anne,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      Eligible purchases are generally defined as everyday purchases which involve the exchange of a good or service for a payment. Transactions that do not qualify as eligible purchases generally include business expenses, gambling transactions, balance transfers, BPAY payments and cash advances. Please note that existing customers who currently hold an ANZ or who have held one in the last 12 months, are not eligible for this offer.

      Cheers,
      Joel

    I have an ANZ VISA F/F Platinum card. My wife holds an ‘additional card’ for this account.
    All F/F points earned are credited to MY F/F account number.
    Is it possible for F/F points earned on my WIFE’s card to be credited to her own F/F account (rather than to mine)?

      Hi Steve,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      If your wife is a supplementary cardholder, then the points will not be credited to her account.

      I hope this information has helped.

    Looking at the answers provided here and on the other ANZ cards it seems that I am not eligible as I currently have a FF ANZ card. It seems that I need to close my ANZ card for 12 months before trying to apply again. What other cards would you recommend to have for the next 12 months that would be similar to the ANZ cards that also offer Qantas FF points and has a low annual fee?
