ANZ is offering 120,000 bonus Qantas Points and $275 back to your new card for new applicants of the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black.
This is one of the most popular credit cards amongst Point Hacks readers—you might like to compare it with the other highest Qantas Point-earning credit cards.
A minimum spend of $4,000 within the first three months of approval is required to receive the 120,000 bonus Qantas Points and the $275 credit, which helps to offset the hefty $425 annual fee. Eligible purchases cover most transactions, with the normal exclusions of fees, cash, cash equivalent transactions, balance transfers and transactions for gambling or gaming.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will holding another ANZ credit card will make me ineligible for the bonus points?
This depends on the type of ANZ credit card that you hold. ANZ credit cards can be split into two categories.
The first is the Frequent Flyer category that is linked to Qantas Frequent Flyer, and consist of the following cards:
- ANZ Frequent Flyer Black
- ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum
- ANZ Frequent Flyer
The second is the Rewards category, consisting of the following cards:
- ANZ Rewards Black
- ANZ Rewards Platinum
- ANZ Rewards
- ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures
If you hold any ANZ Frequent Flyer card, you are unfortunately not able to take advantage of this bonus points offer. However, if you hold an ANZ Rewards card, then you are eligible to take advantage of this bonus points offer.
If I have signed up for the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures card, does that affect my eligibility for this offer?
No, it doesn’t. As the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures card is not an ANZ Frequent Flyer card, it does not affect eligibility for this offer.
If I previously held an ANZ Frequent Flyer card, can I still earn bonus points?
So long as you have not qualified for bonus Qantas Points or a credit back on your previous ANZ Frequent Flyer card within the previous 12 months from the date of closing the account, then you will be eligible for the bonus points.
I was a supplementary holder of an ANZ Frequent Flyer Card which expired in July this year. Will I receive the bonus points on this product if I had an ANZ card but was not the primary holder?
Yes, you will. Being a supplementary cardholder on someone else’s card does not affect your eligibility to receive bonus points if you apply for a card as the primary cardholder.
What happens if I have been awarded bonus Qantas Points by signing up to an offer with another bank? Would that exclude me from this offer? I got the Qantas American Express Ultimate about 18 months ago and received bonus points.
The good news is that you are eligible for the bonus points offer with ANZ—earning bonus points from other banks does not affect your eligibility.
The ANZ Frequent Flyer Black card is a solid offering for earning Qantas Points if you’re not too concerned by the monthly points cap for your circumstances.
The discounted first-year Qantas Club membership and some of the other benefits of the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black can offer good value when utilised properly.
ANZ would also like us to include the following disclaimer.
