Expert review

The ANZ Rewards gives you a way to earn points per $1 spent and offers an annual fee of $80 – which is on the lower end of the scale for rewards cards. The potential trade-off, however, is that this card doesn’t offer any complimentary travel insurance or other premium perks that you see on cards with higher annual fees.

How to apply

You can apply for the ANZ Rewards card online in around 5 minutes by filling out a secure application form via the ANZ website. Before you get started, check that you meet the following eligibility criteria and have all your documents and details ready.

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. To earn the bonus points, you must be a new ANZ Rewards customer. This means you can't currently hold or have previously held an ANZ Rewards Black, ANZ Rewards Platinum or an ANZ Rewards credit card in the last 12 months.

Card benefits

  • 50,000 bonus Reward Points. Apply as a new customer and spend $1,000 on eligible purchases within the first 3 months from card approval to receive 50,000 bonus Reward Points. As an example, you could redeem these points for 12,500 Velocity Points or a $100 David Jones gift card (22,225 Points).
  • Earn points per $1 spent. The ANZ Rewards card earns 1 Reward Point per $1 spent on eligible purchases up to $1,000 spent per statement period, then 0.5 Reward Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases above $1,000 spent per statement period.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This card charges an annual fee of $80 p.a. (includes a $25 annual account fee and a $55 Rewards Program service fee).
  • Interest rates. This card has an interest rate of 20.24% p.a. for purchases. For cash advance transactions – such as ATM withdrawals or foreign currency purchases – a variable interest rate of 20.24% p.a. applies.

    Can ANZ Rewards points be used for Flights with Qantas not Frequent Flyer Program just simply flights with Qantas?

      Hi Brett,

      Thanks for getting in touch! As it says on our page, Qantas is not one of the airline partners for the ANZ Rewards card, but there are other airlines, including Velocity, that you can transfer your points to with this card.

      Hope this helps! Feel free to reach out anytime, we’re standing by.

      Regards,
      Nikki

      Hi Hai,

      Thanks for your question.

      Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services but excluding returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do not include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of traveler’s checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. 

      I hope this answers your question.

      Cheers,

    What is the conversion rate of the reward points to frequent flyer points?

    1 reward point = ?? Krisflyer miles/Velocity/Airpoint dollars/Asia miles.

    Thanks.

      Hi Kenny,

      Thanks for your question.

      Two ANZ Rewards points can be redeemed for one Velocity Frequent Flyer point.

      A minimum of 6,000 ANZ Rewards Points can be redeemed for 2,000 KrisFlyer Miles. After the initial redemption, you can redeem a minimum of 3,000 ANZ rewards points for 1,000 KrisFlyer Miles.

      Redeem an initial minimum of 3,000 Rewards Points for 15 Airpoint Dollars, with additional multiples of 1,500 ANZ Rewards Points allowed thereafter.

      You can redeem a minimum of 3,000 Rewards Points for 1,000 Asia Miles and then a minimum of 1,500 ANZ Rewards Points thereafter.

      For further information, please visit the ANZ Rewards website.

      I hope this has answered your question.

      Thanks,

      Sally

    hi, im interested in this credit card but a little confused with the wording. can you receive qantas frequent flyer points on this card or not ?

    also can you explain how the dual amex/visa works – is it one card or two ? if i make a purchase using amex card do i receive 2 points and if i make a purchase using the visa card do i receive 1.5 points ? so effectively you would receive 2 statements each month ?

      Hi Loui, thanks for your inquiry!

      Unfortunately the ANZ Rewards Visa card does not earn Qantas Frequent Flyers points, although you can convert Rewards points to Velocity Frequent Flyer Points, Air New Zealand Airpoints Dollars, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles and Cathay Pacific Asia Miles. This card comes with a American Express and Visa card, with earnings rates of 2.00 points and 1.50 points respectively. The earnings rates would be displayed on the same statement under different headings.

      I hope this helps!

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

      Hi Clare,

      Thanks for your question.

      You can add up to three additional cardholders to your account. For additional cardholders on ANZ Rewards an additional cardholder fee of $10 will apply, along with a Rewards Program Services Fee of $55 per additional cardholder on the account.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Hi Clare, thanks for your inquiry!

      Generally credit card applications can take 5-10 days for the card to reach the desired address after application approval. Please see our page on new credit card applications on this page and the expected time of arrival for the card depending on the lender.

      Hi Shelsea, thanks for your inquiry!

      In regards to ANZ rewards points, rewards have different amounts of points requirements, depending on the type of reward. As such there is no set measure for rewards points to $AUD.

      For the purposes of this clause 47, qualifying purchases include everyday purchases charged to a black card account by the black card account holder or by any additional cardholder authorised by the black card account holder, but exclude balance transfers, cash advances (as defined in the ANZ Credit Cards Conditions of Use), cash equivalent transactions, any interest charges debited to the credit card account (including interest charged on previously charged interest), stamp duty and other government charges, ANZ Fees and account adjustments resulting from disputed or reversed transactions or refunds. Generally school fees are considered cash advances and are exempt from earning points.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

    If I spend 100000 a year on my credit card how much frequent flyer points do I get

      October 22, 2014

      Hi Barry,

      Thanks for your question.

      This depends whether you spend this money on the Visa or American Express card linked to this account. You will earn 1.5 points for every dollar spent on your Visa card, so $10,000 will earn you 15,000 points. For your American Express card you will earn 2 points for every dollar you spend, so $10,000 spent will earn you 20,000 points.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
