ANZ are offering 50,000 bonus Qantas Points and $100 back to your card for new applicants of the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum Visa. The card is a great option for those on lower incomes.
There’s also an offer of 100,000 bonus Qantas Points and $200 back with the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black Visa which we cover in a separate guide here.
A minimum spend of $2,000 within the first 3 months is required to receive the 50,000 bonus Qantas Points and the $100 credit, which helps to offset the $295 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.
This guide covers the earn rates, caps and benefits of the ANZ Qantas Frequent Flyer Platinum Visa.

The ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum account comes in at $295 per year, with a $50,000 minimum income requirement for applicants.
The earn rate is 0.75 Qantas Point per $1 spent up to $3,000 per statement period, and 0.5 Qantas Point per $1 thereafter uncapped.
The ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum cards come with the following benefits on top of the points earned from purchases:
- Overseas Travel and Medical Insurance (PDS)
- Rental Excess Cover
- Personal Concierge booking service
- 90-day Purchase Security Insurance
- Extended Warranty
- Best Price Guarantee Scheme
- Transport Accident Cover when travelling on a plane, tourist bus, train or ferry paid for with your Platinum credit card
- Interstate Flight Inconvenience Insurance
- Access to Visa Platinum Concierge and Visa Platinum privileges
These are all fairly intangible benefits, meaning that some people may get great use out of them, while others wouldn’t value them highly.
It’s hard to say generally if they are worth the $295 annual fee, but if you end up using them, they’ll definitely help justify the fee.

You should read the PDS and obtain independent professional advice before obtaining this product.
ANZ Apple Pay & Google Pay support
ANZ cards support Apple Pay & Google Pay, meaning you can use their cards on your smartphone for easier payments. Find out more in our guides for each of the compatible services.
The ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum card offers a decent Qantas Point earn rate if you’re not too concerned by the monthly points cap for your circumstances.
If you want the discounted Qantas Club membership, then the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black Visa may be a better choice, and even more so if you can take advantage of some of the other benefits of the card even with the higher annual fee.
