- 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.

- Personal details. You'll need to provide your full name, residential address, email address, date of birth, driver's licence number, marital status, number of dependents and contact number.
- Employment details. This includes your current job title, your salary and your employer's contact details. If you're self-employed, you'll be asked to provide your accountant's contact details to help confirm these details. You'll also need to provide documents that verify your income, such as recent payslips or tax assessment notices from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
- Financial details. This includes any other forms of income, such as government payments and benefits, pensions or savings. You'll also need to provide details of existing debts and credit cards, as well as an estimate of your regular household expenses, such as rent or mortgage payments, bills and groceries.
- Frequent flyer details. You need to provide your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership details to be able to earn Qantas Points through this credit card. If you're not already a member, you can join for free when you apply for this card – saving you $99.50 on the standard joining fee.

The $150 credit will be applied to the purchase 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.
