Expert review

The ANZ Platinum credit card offers a long-term 0% p.a. balance transfer promotion that could help you repay your debt faster and while avoiding interest costs. There are some other longer balance transfer offers on the market, so make sure to factor this into your comparison.

How to apply

You can apply for the ANZ Platinum credit card online in five minutes and receive a response within 60 seconds. Before you apply, make sure you meet the eligibility criteria and have the necessary information to complete 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.
  • Credit history. You'll need to have a good credit score to receive approval. You can get your credit score and comprehensive credit report for free through Finder.

Card benefits

  • 0% p.a. for 18 months on balance transfers. Apply for the ANZ Platinum credit card and get 0% p.a. interest for up to 18 months on balance transfers. The promotional period starts from the date you are approved for the ANZ Platinum credit card and you'll be charged a 2% balance transfer fee. You can transfer up to 95% of your credit limit from non-ANZ accounts. Any unpaid balance will be charged at the standard balance transfer interest rate of 20.24% p.a. once the promotional period ends.
  • $0 annual fee in the first year. New ANZ Platinum credit cardholders will have the annual fee waived for the first year. The annual fee will revert to $87 p.a. thereafter. You can also enjoy no annual fee in the following years if your annual spend exceeds $20,000 on the ANZ Platinum credit card. The annual spend is calculated 12 months following your account's 'fee date'.

Rates & fees

  • Purchase interest rate. Your purchases will collect the 20.24% p.a. interest rate if you carry a balance beyond the interest-free period.
  • Interest-free days. When you pay your balance in full by the statement due date, you can save with up to 55 interest-free days on purchases. Interest-free days do not apply if you're paying off a balance transfer debt.

    Does this cover domestic holidays flights (Melbourne to Sunshine Coast) if we got sick and could not travel?

      Hello Margaret,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Upon checking, you will be covered if holiday travel arrangements you have paid for (but not business related travel) are cancelled for any of the following reasons if you, or a relative unexpectedly:
      – dies;
      – is seriously injured; or
      – becomes seriously ill

      You may contact ANZ directly or contact Allianz Global Assistance for additional details of your complimentary travel insurance for domestic flights.

      Should you wish to have real-time answers to your questions, try our chat box on the lower right corner of our page.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn
