Expert review

The ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum gives you a way to earn Qantas Points on your everyday spending. The introductory offer on this card is a standout feature, giving you enough Qantas Points for a one-way economy flight from Sydney to Los Angeles (from 55,200 points) or a return business class flight from Brisbane to Adelaide (55,200 points) – with some points left over for next time.
